The DICE Award winners, and why it matters

Earlier tonight, the winners were announced with The Last of Us sweeping multiple awards (full list below) including Game of the Year and Best Direction. The winners and losers were debated, furiously, on social media. The event, slightly ramshackle at times, managed to capture the off-the-cuff spirit of gaming, with entertaining appearances from the likes of Mike Capps and Palmer Luckey. These awards are organized by the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences. The winners are voted on by its 22,000 members. There are other awards that are honored and valued, like the GDC Choice Awards and the BAFTAs. But this is where the game industry honors its own.

Injustice: Gods Among Us dev on ease of developing for PS4

Injustice: Gods Among Us was released this past April on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. This week, just seven months later, developer NetherRealm Studios is releasing an Ultimate Edition of the DC Universe fighting game on those current-generation consoles as well as on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Representatives for the studio told Polygon today that a major factor in that relatively short lag time was the relative ease of developing on PS4. "At NetherRealm, we loved the PS3. Like, I know some devs really didn't like the SPUs [synergistic processing units, the hardware architecture of the PS3], but we have a tech team that spent eight years really perfecting that thing.
