PlayStation Awards 2018 is going to take place at Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa, Tokyo Japan. It's not for everyone as the people can only attend with it. If you are not one of them then do not worry as the PlayStation Awards 2018 will be streamed live on Youtube. You can follow the link here to watch it in English or Japanese.
Though what makes this year amazing and different from the previous is the amount of Sony exclusive games. It's going to be a tough competition when it comes to Sony exclusive titles such as God of War and Spiderman. Detroit Become Human is also a look out for one of the best games of the year.
That's not all as RDR 2 has also arrived recently taking away all the attention from other games. Personally, I think God of War was the best game of the year with everything perfect out of the box.
