Here are your Round 1 winners - The Ultimate PS3 Showdown

  • Posted July 27th, 2012 at 21:20 EDT by PSU Staff

32 games entered, but only 16 could remain. The first round of match-ups in our quest to crown the Best PS3 Game Ever was a no-holds-barred, bloody brawl that resulted in some extremely close margins. In at least one case, the difference came down to a single vote!

And in the end, it was your votes that mattered, your votes that decided which 16 games would advance in our tournament.

Round 2 is coming, and things certainly won't get easier. We've narrowed the field considerably, and what you'll see on Monday morning is the absolute best of the best - the top 16 PS3 games, as decided by the PSU community, squaring off to advance further in the competition. All bets are placed, and it's almost time to enter the big leagues.

For now, take a look at all of our Round 1 match-ups below to see which games came out on top, and how narrow the victories were. Remember, Round 2 voting will begin on Monday, July 30, at approximately 8 AM ET.

Let us know what you think of these winners in the comments below! Did your favorites escape elimination? How are your official contest entries holding out?
