The Road to Game of the Year

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…..

It’s time for all of the GameSpot editors to tally their votes and pick the Game of the Year for 2013! Nominations will be broadcasted live next Monday December 9th. Each day till then a new piece about games this year will be posted. Stay updated on by checking out our Game of the Year hub page!

GameSpot Hot Topics

This week’s hot topics are no surprise to anyone. Next gen consoles have finally launched, so Microsoft and Sony will be tossing out a lot of numbers over the next couple months. They're fun to follow, but they don't mean much (yet). Full Story.

According to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime the most powerful console isn't always the most successful. He believes the success of the original Wii and PlayStation 2 proves you don't need the beefiest specs to come out on top. Full Story.

Microsoft has come forward with its own declaration of the Xbox One's success. With over 1300 comments, the community clear has a lot to say about this statement. Do you think it’s too early for Microsoft to be making statements like this or do you agree with them? Write a comment below! Full Story.
