Happy Holidays from PlayStation.Blog, Game Developer Invasion Starts Tomorrow

138 2

PlayStation Blog Holiday

That’s a wrap! Together with James from the EU PlayStation.Blog, Jeff, Rey, and I will soon be winding down for the holiday break. But this is no Blog blackout: The PlayStation.Blog will be going strong with fresh new posts helmed by some of the greatest game developers in the world. It starts tomorrow with Guerrilla Games and a unique look Christmas in Amsterdam. Insomniac Games and Sucker Punch Productions will also be spreading a little holiday cheer of their own. And later…well, who knows who else will drop by?

Looking back, 2010 was one hell of a year for PlayStation fans. We got great games like Heavy Rain, God of War III, Gran Turismo 5, MAG, and ModNation Racers; we got sweet new PSN video services such as Hulu Plus, (a disc-free) Netflix, VUDU, MLB.TV, and NHL.TV; we got PlayStation Move in all of its precise glory; we got stereoscopic 3D and Facebook integration and Share and HD PS2 classics and PlayStation Plus and betas and a LittleBigPlanet 2 demo and an UNCHARTED 3 announcement and a Twisted Metal E3 announcement and a bunch of other things I’m probably forgetting (feel free to remind us in the comments!)

Be happy, be healthy, and be good! And be sure to join us in 2011 for one of the wildest PlayStation software lineups of all time. I’m tingling already!

P.S. What was your favorite overall PS3 and PSP game this year?

  • 2010 was a great year for us and we all know that! Thanks for the hard work! My overall favorite game of PS3 was hard to choose because there’s so many I was thinking of but I’ll have to say Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of the Patriots. I just can’t get enough of the game. Happy holidays Sid!

  • So far my favorite game was Home.

    But if you are speaking of retail or PSP games.

    PS3 – Battletoads…. no wait, I meant .detuned.
    PSP – Moprtal Kombat. Yeah I got my PSP late and a heck of a lot of games this year.

  • My favorite PS3 game of this year was MAG. Such an awesome accomplishment of how they manage to pull of 256 player gameplay without major problems. This year has been quite a blast with some up and downs but it still came out as a good year. Though next year shall be so much better with the releases, of Uncharted 3 Drakes Deception, Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 2, LBP2, and so many other games that have either yet to be named or I just can’t name. I so can’t wait for next year. It shall be another great year for the PS3.

  • Who else is stopping by Sid? WHO ELSE IS STOPPING BY DAMMIT!? WHOOOOO!?!?

    Sorry, the anticipations got me antsy in my pantsy, but I still want to shoot all you at PSBlog a very merry Christmas and some super Happy Holidays. You guys did a great job this year and I await next year’s coverage of all news Playstation with bated breath. Have a good break!

  • PS3: Call of Duty: Black Ops
    PSP: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

  • Merry Christmas to Sid, Jeff, Rey, (the often underrated) Grace, and the team.

    I know you sometimes have to sift through a lot of negative comments and off topic requests (I’ll save my questions about the craziness of the new forum for another time) but you should know that we appreciate the hard work that is put into the Blog.

    Now, for Christmas, I am hoping for a powerful PS Phone, news of a PSP2, proper music and video stores in all regions, Chrome on the PS3 with a Move pointer, and a PSN messaging app for PSP and smartphones.

    Of course, you could just get me into an Uncharted 3 beta, and that would make me just as happy.

    Happy new year too!

  • Back to the forum (I couldn’t stay on-topic for long)…

    The new forum has a ton of features, but the interface is extremely messy.

    Can you ask Santa to tidy up the frond end, create a proper categorised landing page, and make it easier to navigate for new users.

    Back to Christmas and New Year… the games lineup for 2011 looks truly amazing. Maybe that’s our Christmas gift from Sony

  • You guys did great this year take a well deserved break :-D

  • 2010 was great! Modnations Racers gave me months of fun! But bring on 2011!

  • Playstation game of the year is undoubtedly God of War 3. Epic ending to an epic saga with a surprising amount of depth in the end.

  • Heavy Rain is such a unique experience that none other game will give you ever.You really are the characters.You will feel the tension while playing this game and it has sooo much replay value.The game is difficult i tell u.
    Oscar worthy story,Fantastic Experience.
    Heavy Rain for Game of the Year 2010 All The Way!

  • Happy Holidays PlayStation.

    Favorite games of ’10: PS3 – GOW3. PSP – Ghost of Sparta.

    Thanks Sony SM & Readyatdawn!

  • Because I got my PS3 this year with LittleBigPlanet Game of the Year Edition, I’ll say that’s my favorite game. I spend alot of time creating levels,although they aren’t as good as some that I find over the community U.U , but it’s cool.
    My fav. PSP game is Silent Hill Origin’s (is the only game I got for the PSP though)

    And Happy Christmas everyone at PlayStation Blog and the PSN Community

  • ModNation Racers!

  • Another great year of Playstation games, and looking forward to 2011!

    My favourite PS3 game this year was Heavy Rain (with God of War 3 right behind it), and my favourite PSP game was Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker (with God of War Ghost of Sparta right behind it!).

    I still have lots of games I haven’t found time to play yet, and more coming next year, but I’m not complaining. Have a great Christmas everyone!

  • LittleBigPlanet! I just got my PS3 last christmas, then in january I GOT LittleBigPlanet!

  • My GOTY is God of war 3.

    I’m surprised that some people say FF13 for GOTY, for me it was a chore to play through it, a very bad game. To each their own i guess

  • My favorite games for the PS3 are:
    LocoRoco Cocoreccho!
    LittleBigPlanet
    DanceDanceRevolution PS3
    Sports Champions
    Start the Party! Demo
