Gamescom hasn’t even started yet, however the nominees for the “Best of Show” are now available for you to cast your eyes over.
As you would expect there is a strong showing from companies such as EA, Sony and Activision.
Surprisingly none of the nominations put Modern Warfare 3 up against Battlefield 3, with the latter coming in the best PC game category and Modern Warfare 3 up for best online game. It’s also quite surprising that none of them are up for best console game, although the nominees in that particular category are very strong.
Gamescom takes place on August 17-21, and the award ceremony, August 17 as part of the opening ceremony.
