F1 2010 has won the equivalent on an Oscar in video gaming terms

Codemasters’ multi-platform F1 2010 video game has won in its category at the annual British Academy Video Games Awards in London.

The game – produced for Playstation 3, XBOX 360 and PC – F1 2010 beat a further five competitors to win the best Sports Game category in the awards ceremony at London’s Hilton Hotel.

The game – reviewed here on Richard’s F1 – beat other nominees such as FIFA 11, Football Manager 2011, International Cricket 2010, Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 and the widely-acclaimed Gran Turismo 5.

The game is Codemasters’ second officially-licensed Formula 1 game since it gained the rights from previous owners, Sony.

Codemasters has confirmed it is already in the process of creating F1 2011, with the company no doubt hoping to improve on the generally popular title, which was still afflicted by a few production bugs.
