Internet Security Threat Report 2014

We are proud to finally disclose the winners of last night's computer games Oscars in London (we had too many individual emails asking for the results, so we're posting them). A quick note about the delay between event and this posting, however - it's not our fault. Four phone calls to five people and two emails to different companies, and we were still non-the-wiser until five minutes ago. While this makes a nice change from having PR rubbish shoved down our throats, we suspect the breakdown in communication is a combination of cracking hangovers and Easter weekend (the press notice was even written in the future tense). The Register advises: Nurofen, Zantac, coffee and pancakes. Here they are - the more you sell the more you win awards Platinum Award (300,000+ units) Gran Turismo 2 (Sony, PlayStation) FIFA 2000 (Electronic Arts, PlayStation) Gold Awards (200,000+ units) James Bond: Tomorrow Never Dies (MGM/Electronic Arts, PlayStation) Tomb Raider 4 - The Last Revelation (Eidos, PlayStation) Pokemon Red (Nintendo, Gameboy) Pokemon Blue (Nintendo, Gameboy) Silver Awards (100,000+ units) Final Fantasy VIII (Squaresoft, PlayStation) Star Wards EP1: Phantom Menace (Lucasarts, PlayStation) Dino Crisis (Virgin, PlayStation) LMA Manager (Code Masters, PlayStation) Crash Team Racing (Sony, PlayStation) Championship Manager: Season 99/00 (Eidos, CD-Rom) Age of Empires II: Age of Kings (Microsoft, CD-Rom) Spyro the Dragon 2 (Sony, PlayStation) Medal of Honour (Dreamworks/EA, PlayStation) Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (Eidos, PlayStation)
