Arkane Studios’ Dishonored picked up the Best Game award at last night’s BAFTA’s in a ceremony dominated by digital releases.

Of the 18 gongs up for grabs, boxed retail games netted just just four awards. And although it should be noted that some of the gongs - like Best Mobile & Handheld - obviously preclude disc-based releases, it was nevertheless a statement of intent for the academy.

By far the most celebrated winner on the night was Journey, thatgamecompany’s beautiful PSN-exclusive. It picked up no less than a quarter of the total awards, including Original Music, Artistic Achievement, Game Design, Audio Achievement, and Online Multiplayer. Another PSN-exclusive, The Unfinished Swan, won Debut Game and Innovation.

Meanwhile, XCOM: Enemy Unknown won Best Strategy, Far Cry 3 won Best Action and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes won Best Family game.
