Holy crap! Golden Joysticks breezes past 600,000 votes

You read that right number fans - this year's Golden Joystick Awards has now amassed 600,000 votes. Immense! The actual official tally currently stands at 640,000, which - we've discovered through typing 640,000 into Google - is exactly equal to the number of Texans left without power in the wake of Hurricane Ike. Amazing! Coincidence? Yes.

And the breaking of the mighty 600K barrier was celebrated with the generous distribution of a N96 handset to the fortuitous person who cast the 600,000th vote. N96 maker Nokia describes its fancy handset as "stunning to look at, feature packed and Mensa smart". So just like us. Wahey.

But don't feel green - if you haven't voted yet you could be the next person to walk away with some cool stuff as there's still a bunch of tres desirable prizery to be snatched away. All you have to do to be in with a chance is vote for your favourite gaming bits and pieces. So do yourself a favour and vote.

    It's nice to see people taking an interest in such events and voting for their fave games, it really helps the format when more and more people start getting behind stuff like the Joysticks.

    honestly, im a gamer, i love games but with the downturn of the economy, this is a waste of good money when it could be spent on keeping the economy flowing. It's not much but it would help.
