The GamesMaster Golden Joystick Awards have received one million votes in a record time of just six weeks.
“It’s great that we’ve already hit a million,” says George Walter, Editorial Co-ordinator of the GamesMaster Golden Joystick Awards – presented by Alienware. “All the time we’ve spent engaging with different game communities and extolling the Joysticks brand through social media is paying off.
“We’re also seeing some surprises in the voting, with a few unexpected titles taking an early lead – it’s too soon to say for sure, but we could be looking at a few upsets when the winners are announced.”
“One million votes in six weeks is a brilliant result – and we’re only halfway through!” says James Kick, Associate Publisher of the awards. “It shows how much gamers are embracing the awards this year.”
With one month still to go before voting closes, the 2011 awards look set to beat last years record 1.54 million votes. Make sure to head over to www.goldenjoystick.com and cast your vote. Winners will be announced at the award ceremony on Friday 21st October.
