The PlayStation 5 has just been released and with Christmas around the corner that will mean only one thing: the release of lots of new games! Games are always a great gift for a PlayStation gamer, but it can be very hard to find the right game for the right gamer. There are hundreds of games out there and they all appeal to different types of gamers, all with their different preferences. So to you out, we have made a short PlayStation Gamer Gift Guide that will help you will find the perfect gift.

The digital way is the new way

Since the game market is so diverse, it can be a bit overwhelming when finding one specific game for someone. Fortunately, PlayStation has been moving away from physical games to digital ones. Most of the games sold today are being bought in the console’s online environment. The online environment uses a PSN account, to which gamers can transfer money to in order to buy a variety of different PlayStation related things. This makes it a lot easier to buy a present because if the PSN account is being charged, the person to whom you are giving the present can choose what they would like to have from the online store. Using a PS4 or PS5 system, you can easily fund the digital wallet in your PSN account by redeeming a purchased digital gift voucher. It has already proven to be a solution for many gamers in the recent months. Just top up your balance without ever having to leave your home. It’s fast, safe and easy!

What gifts can you give with a PSN card?

You don’t just buy games with a PSN card. There are lots of different things that can be bought in the PlayStation Store. One option is microtransactions, where you can buy things within a game with money that is in your digital wallet. Another possibility is buying extensions packs or add-ons for a game so that the player can have more play time with one game without spending big amounts of money.

In addition to using microtransactions, you can also exchange a PSN card for PlayStation Plus credit. PlayStation Plus is necessary if you want to play online, with real-life friends or anyone else.

Every year the best PlayStation game titles come out during the holidays, and this year will be no exception. Especially considering the new PlayStation 5 was released this year so many major titles are being released simultaneously. The most popular new games are FIFA 21, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Assassins Creed Valhalla and especially Cyberpunk 2077 is very much anticipated. Many of these games can be pre-ordered, which can be done by redeeming a PSN gift card in the PlayStation Store. When the game is then finally released, it can be downloaded and played immediately with the online PlayStation Store Credit you have topped up!
