Less than a few days now separate us from Christmas. The offices of many publishers, studios and other communications agencies are preparing to close their doors for the holidays. And as tradition dictates, many structures have designed a special illustration to mark the occasion. In order to get in the mood before the start of the festivities, we invite you to discover a cascade of greeting cards.
Many video game players have just shared their 2021 greeting cards. Sony had the good idea to bring together many of them on its PlayStation Blog. And we invite you to discover them in our gallery below.
Greeting cards galore
Not surprisingly, Sony is very well represented here. In addition to its general menu, the Japanese manufacturer offers the achievements of many of its studios. Naughty Dog, Bend Studio, Team Asobi or even Sucker Punch are therefore represented. Some publishers, like Bandai Namco Entertainment for example, have made individual cards for their different games.
Others, like SEGA, have done things differently. Sonic’s house has indeed created a general map. As well as a card for his Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio. And another for his Demon Slayer game. Basically, there is no unanimously adopted strategy here. Everyone has done things their own way.
Works of varying motivation
It is interesting to look at all these greeting cards one after the other. This allows us to see the different strategies behind these works. Some societies are more inspired than others. For publishers, this greeting card is seen as an additional opportunity to promote one or more of their games.
Others take the opportunity to have a truly festive original artwork produced. And the latter does not always relate to a title currently marketed. Another category clearly does not want to bother and offers a visual for the less basic. The investment of the various publishers and studios is far from being worth it.
These cards having been shared by Sony, the creations of Xbox and Nintendo are consequently absent subscribers. But it’s a safe bet that the other two manufacturers will offer one by December 25. Especially since Nintendo has already shared festive images on Twitter.
