Xbox celebrates National Video Games Day with Nintendo and PlayStation

Today, September 12, 2021, is National Video Games Day in the United States, which is the national video game day. The interesting fact is that no one really knows why this anniversary is celebrated: WilsonCenter explains that this date has been selected for many years for this event, although it was not possible to understand with certainty what were the reasons for which September 12 was chosen as a day dedicated to video games.

Not to mention that there would also be another date, July 8, in which “Video Games Day” should be celebrated, also in the United States. Uncertainties excluded, however it is a good occasion to celebrate the medium we love most and, for some of us, the industry we work in. Among the many companies that have taken the opportunity to wish all the players their best wishes, there are obviously the greats of the industry, such as PlayStation and Xbox. Specifically, Sony posted on the Twitter profile an image of DualSense and PlayStation 5, reminding everyone that there are open job positions in his studios.

To be liked the most, however, is the image posted by the Xbox account, which portrays a gaming station in the living room where, near the TV, I am present a Nintendo Switch, an Xbox Series X and a PS5, as well as a smartphone and a gaming PC. As always, the social profiles of Microsoft consoles are able to be loved by all players, celebrating them no matter which console they prefer to play on. After all, it’s National Video Game Day!

Today’s day, which happens on Sunday, is therefore perfect for playing our favorite titles, perhaps in the company of our friends in online or local multiplayer sessions. Let us know by commenting at the bottom of what you will play today and stay connected so as not to miss further news on National Video Games Day, as studies are still underway to understand why it is celebrated on 12 September.
