This came across when I was browsing an Australia gaming website, this is the whole sentence:
"In the past, Hideo Kojima has been a regular at the PlayStation Awards when his games have won."
So I'm wondering why they're using the Present Perfect with "in the past" in there, because from my understanding, Present Perfect is used when you say something that is still related to the present-days.
Therefore, I think that sentence should have been: "In the past, Hideo Kojima was a regular at the PlayStation Awards when his games had won." Is that corrent?
Thank you so much for your time!
