The Lunar New Year is just around the corner, and that means money is about to make its way into your pockets; if you’re still a kid that is. And no matter what you do, one way or another though, it’s all going to disappear very soon thanks to PlayStation.

PlayStation has schemed up the perfect event this month called Playful Festival 2021, that’s filled with tons of offers, free games and activities that will allow you to win some grand prizes!

Playful Festival 2021 is live!

Apart from Hitman 3’s buggy launch last month, there aren’t many games to play as of now. Thus, this might be the perfect time to revisit some old games that you might have missed out by getting them at discounted prices.

From today till February 17, gamers can purchase games from the PlayStation Store with up to 80% discounts under the Playful New Year Sale! There’s quite a variety of games available on the list, so there’s bound to be something that will pique your interest.

And if you’re looking for a meaty game that’s going to last you for a while and worth your time, then I’d suggest getting Ghost of Tsushima or Red Dead Redemption 2, or both if you have the cash.

Every PlayStation gamer needs a healthy subscription of PlayStation Plus to enjoy online activities of games. And if you have been waiting to top up it, then you’re in luck, because Playful Festival 2021 has you covered!

By purchasing a PlayStation Plus 12-month subscription voucher and redeeming it by February 10, 2021, 23:59, you’ll be able to get three months of additional subscription for free! However, note that it needs to be a voucher purchased from a retail store.

And if you are against the idea of heading out; you can also get a PlayStation Plus 12-month subscription from the PlayStation Store directly by saving 25% off. However, unlike the voucher, you will not get the additional three months of free subscription.

Play and win!

As for the activities themselves, it’s pretty straightforward.

All you have to do is sign up by February 11 first, then play as much as you can and complete community goals between February 12 and March 5! Finally, based on the results, stand a chance to win prizes like PS Plus 12 Months Subscription and PS Store $1,360 Money Voucher! 

Easy Peasy!
