2020 Golden Joystick Awards: nominees among VR

Voting for the Golden Joystick Awards prize for 2020 has already begun with several VR nominees in several categories.

Online the ceremony will take place in November, and for the General public will be available 18 categories. Several categories, including “Ultimate Game of the Year”, has not yet made the short-list, but the bulk of the short lists of the ceremony are ready.

A special category for virtual reality, so the equipment of the game and the Studio of virtual reality scattered in many different areas, creating stiff competition. This year there is at least one nominee for VR in half of the total categories, which is a great recognition of extensive years in the industry.

Strangely enough, Oculus Quest 2 is nominated for best Playground equipment, despite the fact that is not yet available to the General public. Given that this is the award given by public vote, is quite a strange situation. Quest 2 will reach their customers a few weeks before the polls close.
