1m votes and counting for Golden Joysticks

Having only opened voting six weeks ago, Future has announced that over 1m votes have already been cast in this year’s GamesMaster Golden Joystick Awards presented by Alienware.

It’s the fastest that the milestone has been hit in the event’s 29-year history.

The awards remain on target to beat last year’s record total vote count of 1.54m.

“It’s great that we’ve already hit a million,” editorial co-ordinator George Walter stated. “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.”

To vote, visit the official website. Voting closes on October 14th.

This year’s event takes place on October 21st at London’s Westminster Bridge Park Plaza.
