The MCV Awards tend to focus on the industry side of gaming, with awards for the top specialist retailers, games publishers and distributors, or marketing and PR teams. But in amongst the finalists, there are a couple of mentions for F1 2010 as the lone representative of the racing genre.
It’s listed in the finalists for ‘Best Use of Social Media’ – up against the likes of Fable 3, Just Cause 2 and Just Dance, and happily for Codemasters, it also pops up in ‘Sales Triumph’ versus the likes of Mafia 2, Art Academy and Sniper: Ghost Warrior.
And in the ‘Peripherals & Accessories’ category, Thrustmaster are listed as purveyors of steering wheels to the online racer!
And in terms of retailers, you’ll be pleased to know that when you follow the links to Game, HMV, or Play.com from this site, they’re amongst the contenders for ‘Specialist Retailer’, along with Amazon, Asda, Tesco, Argos and Sainsbury’s for General Retailer.
The MCV Awards take place on April 7th, 2011 in London, UK.
