“Sponsors win big” at MCV awards

According to GI, the sponsors of last night’s MCV Awards did rather well. Their words, not ours. From the site:

Nintendo picked up four gongs at the MCV Industry Excellence Awards last night, echoing its triumph at last year’s event.

Nintendo also acted as the Exclusive Retail Partner of the event, while fellow sponsors Gem and Codemasters also picked up awards.

Play.com, who partnered with MCV for its recent Live event at Wembley, picked up the award for best Online Retailer, while HMV won Entertainment Retailer.

Other winners at the event included GAME for Specialist Retailer, Grainger Games for Independent Retailer and Microsoft for the Halo 3 Game Campaign.
