it's usually stuff like E3 awards where the games are compared with other incomplete games with the general understanding that the awards are based on perceived promise. keeping it vague with taglines like "winner of 198 awards!" allows the marketers to skirt around the awards being based off of demos (possibly hands off, no less).
