Around this time every year are The Game Awards. And based on the awards, game companies put their awarded games on sale which doubles as a holiday bonus. Both PlayStation and Xbox have brand new next-gen consoles with exciting new games to play. There is no better time to grab some discounted Christmas gifts. Here is the PlayStation Game Awards Sale of 2021.
For starters, the PlayStation Game Awards Sale is happening now and will go till midnight on December 13th. PlayStation has has a great year of next-gen titles that will be on sale. All the discounted games are games that are nominated for various game of the year categories, like best score and music, best art direction, and best narrative.
If you’ve managed to snag a PlayStation 5, you’ll definitely want to check out these deals. And, as a last note before we jump in, if the person you’re gifting to doesn’t want (or can’t play) a physical version of a game, gift them a PlayStation gift card with a specific game in mind.
PlayStation Game Awards Sales of 2021
Now, onto the games on sale. Deathloop is nominated for eight different game award categories including game of the year, best performance, and best action game. Deathloop is 50% off making it $29.99. A perfect present for first-person and story-rich fans.
Next is Kena: Bridge of Spirits. Hailed as an unexpectedly delightful indie experience, Kena: Bridge of Spirits is nominated for three game awards: best art direction, best independent game, and best debut indie game. It is on sale for $27.99, 30% off of its normal price.
Resident Evil Village was expected to be great and then was even better.

Nominated for game of the year, best performance, most anticipated game, best audio design, and best action/adventure, Resident Evil is 50% making it $29.99.
Returnal is another PlayStation 5 exclusive that wowed us this year. Nominated for three (just three?) game awards this year, Returnal is a visual and audio feast and is more accessible than ever. Returnal is 29% off for $49.69.
