The Game Awards 2019 are happening tonight, kicking off at 5:30 PM PT / 8:30 PM ET in Los Angeles, and while the awards themselves are exciting, what better way to celebrate some of this year’s biggest games than with a sale? Best Buy is getting in on the Game Awards hype with a big sale on some of the Game Awards nominees and other critically acclaimed games, including Control, Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5. In addition, the retailer is offering some sweet pre-order bonuses on highly anticipated 2020 releases like Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake.
The sale largely features discounts on PS4 and Xbox One games, with the best deals including Control for $40, Resident Evil 2 for $25, and Kingdom Hearts 3 for $20. We did see lower prices on some of these games during Black Friday (Resident Evil 2 and Kingdom Hearts 3 both hit $15, while Control was as low as $25 at one store), but if you missed out on those rare deals, these are still solid prices for some excellent games, especially if you need to pick them up before Christmas.
We’ve included the game discounts available below, but you can browse more Game Awards-nominated games at Best Buy as they’re conveniently curated on one page. The deals are available now through December 16.
