    Store manager!?

    Forget GAME Oxford Street too…

    I was arguing with some staff in there for ages when I bought my Elite, because I didn’t want the crappy games that came with the bundle.

    They didn’t budge, and I ended up getting the console and a game seperately.

    I’ve stopped spending stupid amounts of money in there since then…

    WOW… I’d like to know who did the voting. You are going to tell me that in the “Game Publisher” dept Sony doesnt deserve to be there..

    It kinda makes sense. MCV’s a tradey site/mag/thing, so it praises the games publishers that do well commercially. Sony released better games than Sega, but did any of them do as well as Mario and Sonic? Nah.

    Actually Sega did really well last year thanks to Mario & Sonic (one of the biggest selling games ever in the UK) and Football Manager. As a result they’ve overtaken various companies such as THQ in the sales rankings. Activision will probably still win though, since they’ve completed dominated via Call of Duty and World of Warcraft.

    Did Sonic do that well? really? I wouldnt question Mario. So these awards have nothing to do with quality then.. i guess that explains it.

    “Sorry, didnt know that this was UK based.”

    I think the clue was in all the individual stores mentioned being in the UK. As is the listed location of the award ceremony…

    I hope Ubi win Best PR.

    My friend works there as the UK Community Team Leader, knew her back from when she was a mod for the UK PlayStation forums. :D
