Journey is a great achieve for Sony and TheGameCompany. I can see The Last Guardian winning the same Nominations and Awards. Sony has had a great run of games this generation, with a great deal of their first party titles winning awards and getting nominations.

It's nice to see three of their games getting nominated for Handheld Game of the Year. Hell even PlayStation All Stars got a nomination for fighting Game of the Year.

Looking at all the nominations, Sony really did have a great 2012. A lot of nominations for their first and second party exclusives.
