Uncharted 2 cleans up at gaming awards

Sony's uncharted 2: Amongst Thieves has picked up ten gongs at the AIAS awards, despite stiff competition from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Awards, which were held in Las Vegas last night, gave a resounding vote of confidence to Sony's epic adventure Uncharted 2, sending it home with enough silverware to fill a limo.

The PS3 only title won Game of the Year, Outstanding achievement in Game Direction and Adventure Game of the Year as well as six other accolades.

The AIAS awards, which are voted for by industry insiders, much like the Oscars, concentrate on technical achievement rather than volume of sales or the vagaries of fandom.
