As previously mentioned, the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Steam will be running “limited time only sales” on Thursday, December 3, to coincide with The Game Awards 2015.
Producer Geoff Keighley had this to say about the sales:
When I created The Game Awards last year, I really spent a lot of time thinking about how we could create value for people watching the show. Last year we partnered with Steam for a pilot program called The Game Awards Sale where a lot of the nominees were put on special discount during the show live on Steam. It was incredibly successful for developers, but also for the fans.
This year, we’re expanding that Game Awards Sale concept across all platforms. So both on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, and Steam, there’ll be special discounts on nominees and other games. During the show you’ll be able to unlock those special offers and download those games in and around The Game Awards.
During the trailer, games like Fallout 4, Halo 5: Guardians, Axiom Verge, and more are shown, with Assassin’s Creed Syndicate set to receive a 20% discount on Xbox One.
At least on the PlayStation Store, The Game Awards 2015 Sale will run from December 3 to December 5 at 12pm PT/3pm ET. Stay tuned for full details once they’re available.
Which nominees do you hope go on sale?
