Battlefield 3 crowned “Best of Gamescom”

DICE’s Battlefield 3 has nabbed yet another award. The Swedish studio can add “Best of Gamescom” to their collection, a recognition earned at the Cologne event this week.

The shooter vowed with its 2-player co-op mode plus a new Caspian Border multiplayer map at the event. And jets. There were jets.

Publisher EA essentially stole the show, winning three other awards; “Best Online Game” (Star Wars: The Old Republic), “Best Console Game” (FIFA 12), and “Best Browser Game” (The Sims Social).

Sony got an easy win for “Best Hardware” with its PlayStation Vita handheld. It also picked up the “Best Mobile Game” with Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

Diablo III walked away with the “Best PC Game” and Sesame Street: Once Upon a Monster with the “Best Family Game” award.
