The PlayStation Store Special Prize went to the five most popular titles available for download via PlayStation Network. Winners included Castlevania: Harmony of Despair, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure HD, Journey, Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation and the Nico Nico video application.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Journey and Uncharted 3 were recognized as the top User's Choices in the World Game category, and ten Japanese games received the User's Choice Prize for Japan: Dark Souls, Dragon's Dogma, Final Fantasy 13-2, Gravity Rush, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f, Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation, Persona 4: Golden, Resident Evil 6, Super Danganronpa 2 and Ys Celceta: Sea of Trees.
