Players’ Choice July 2018 Winner: The Persistence

Have you yet braved into the horrors of The Persistence? Seems a lot of PlayStation.Blog readers have! FireSprite’s impressive foray into VR earned them enough fans to secure the title of July’s Best New Game, followed by Banner Saga 3 and 20XX. Congratulations!

Thanks to everyone who voted this month — let us know in the comments what your early contenders for August are!


And we’re back! The Players’ Choice polls for July 2018 are officially open, and it’s time for you to help us decide what the month’s best new game was. Don’t dawdle — voting closes Sunday night at 11:59pm Pacific!

How does it work? At the end of every month, PlayStation.Blog will open a poll where you can vote for the best new game released that month. Soon thereafter, we’ll close the polls, tally your votes, and announce the winner at PlayStation.Blog. PlayStation Store will also showcase some top Players’ Choice winners throughout the year.What is the voting criteria? That’s up to you! If you were only able to recommend one new release to a friend that month, which would it be? In keeping with our long tradition in the Game of the Year Awards, remastered or re-released games won’t qualify. Ambitious, larger-scale rebuilds and remakes like Shadow of the Colossus and Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will.

How are nominees decided? The PlayStation.Blog and PlayStation Store editorial teams will gather a list of that month’s most noteworthy releases and use it to seed the poll. Write-in votes will be accepted.
