Yes you read the title correctly, because before gamescom 2011 has even been opened to the general public FIFA 12 has been crowned “Best Console Game” by an independent jury of gaming media experts. Quite an achievement so early in the show, i’m sure you’ll agree.
Here’s a run down of all the awards handed out at gamescom so far and EA in general have done very well indeed.
Best of gamescom: Battlefield 3 – Electronic Arts
Best Hardware or Hardware Accessories: Playstation Vita – Sony Computer Entertainment.
Best Console Game: FIFA 12 – EA SPORTS
Best Mobile Game: Uncharted: Golden Abyss – Sony Computer Entertainment
Best Online Game: Star Wars The Old Republic – Electronic Arts
Best PC Game: Diablo III – Blizzard Entertainment
Best Browser Game: The Sims Social Electronic Arts
Best Family Game: Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment
So the gaming media love it, Lukas Podolski loves it, but how do you think FIFA 12 is looking at gamescom 201 so far?
