Happy Holidays from PlayStation.Blog and Friends

Ah, December. A time to celebrate a number of different holidays for a number of different reasons. The PlayStation.Blog team is taking some time off to visit, gain a few pounds, and hopefully catch up on some of that gaming backlog we’ve accrued over the course of 2015.

Before we sign off for the year, we wanted to celebrate the creators who make not only PlayStation.Blog, but this industry in its entirety possible. It’s these studios who create the worlds we yearn to escape to, who write the stories upon whose every word we hang. It’s thanks to them that we can do what we love to do.

We invited a few folks to stop by and pass along along any holiday greetings they might have for you, our dear readers, and they responded in kind! Let’s enjoy these festive holiday cards, take a moment to appreciate the projects these creators put their hearts and souls into, and look forward to another incredible year.

  • Looks like you guys googled a bunch of game related pics and posted them lol. NICE!

  • Merry Christmas, guys! Thanks for all you do through the year.

  • Happy Holidays, Blog!

  • shout outs to klei for actually saying “Merry Christmas”.

    • Shout out to everyone that says “happy holidays” too, and isn’t ignorant enough to believe that THEIR belief is above anyone else’s.

    • +1 MGS. I cringed when I saw the one card that wasn’t neutral. lol

    • My personal favorite is Adult Swim’s “Merry Whatever.”

      Because I don’t care what you celebrate.


    • Shout out to “oo7PorscheMGS” who thinks HIS belief of saying “happy holidays” IS ABOVE anyone’s so called “ignorant” belief in just saying “Merry Christmas”.

    • I don’t think he is saying he is above everyone. Just for so long now everyone complains about being said merry Christmas to and Christmas is the whole reason for the holiday in the first place. If we are supposed to respect all religions than why should we forget our own just because some ppl don’t celebrate Christmas now we are supposed to just say happy holidays to everyone. Keep Christ in Christmas. I have no issue with everyone else celebrating what they want but if I wish you a merry Christmas don’t get offended and say I don’t celebrate Christmas. It is just nice to know that some people still remember that Christmas exists.

    • Wingman, I was going to make the same comment.

      I’ll also give passes to Season Greetings.

    • Shout outs to everyone else using a greeting that INCLUDES other beliefs.

    • @worldlib777 did I say that? You should take some analytical / reasoning classes before you enter a debate. Wingman_SRK was implying that “Merry Christmas” is the only true way to wish people a happy holiday lol… I called him out on being ignorant on that point, nothing more. If you wanna say merry christmas, go for it… I’m not ignorant enough to try and stop you, lol… just like I wouldn’t force you to say Happy Hanukkah instead of Merry Christmas… ;)

      Long story short: Just because someone stands up to someone who is trying to oppress other people, doesn’t mean that person is being oppressive too ;)

  • Merry Christmas everyone!

  • Merry Christmas to everyone out there. Happy Holidays to all :)

  • Have a great holiday everyone, and see you in the new year! :-D


  • Happy holidays! Here is hoping the hackers don’t kill the psn

  • Merry Christmas all, and a personal shout-out to Klei Entertainment for actually putting those words, “Merry Christmas”on your digital card. Glad to see one company can still say it, instead of Happy Holidays.

    • People who get hung up on nonsense like this have done far, far more to dampen the Christmas spirit than anyone who says Happy Holidays. You are your own worst enemy.

    • Glad to see you feel the need to have your religion noted as being somehow above other people’s religion…

      Try respecting everyone’s religion instead of putting yourself and your views above others. I was raised Catholic but I’m not ignorant enough to think my religion is the only one or the “best” one in the world or something…

      So happy holidays and here’s to some more open minds in 2016…

    • Our readers subscribe to lots of different religions and celebrate lots of different holidays!

    • +420 to billyok

      Have a great day whatever you are doing. Strictly atheist “Uncanny X-Mas” over here. lol

    • what a load of bull, Christmas is as much a religious holiday as SAINT patrick’s day or valentine’s day. It started off as a holiday celebrated by pagans, now it’s about a fat man in a sleigh delivering presents. simply put, it’s a national holiday, not a religious observance. Christians choose to celebrate Christ on this day, but most of the country is just giving gifts and having family togetherness.

      Evidence suggests that Jesus wasn’t even born on Christmas anyway, just the roman empire trying to Christianify their festival to try to avoid collapsing.

      Plus, there are people who don’t celebrate holidays at all, so by the logic displayed here, even happy holidays should not be displayed. who cares about other holidays, you should wish people a merry christmas. if you don’t celebrate it, then it’s not for you.

  • Just wanna say happy holidays to the Blog team and all my fellow gamers : )

    And here’s to a great 2016!

  • Merry Christmas!

  • Thank you PS Blog team and developers! I hope that 2016 brings you every success and happiness!

  • Happy holidays and awesome artwork, Horizon one is badass, and I’d love to play golf with a giant candy cane, lol.

    • Glad to see you could stop calling people “ignorant” and “disrespectful” long enough to simply enjoy your holiday of choice. Merry Christmas and I 100% mean that how most everyone means it these days… to enjoy this Christmas, joyous and festive time of year in whatever manner you choose.

    • Well if someone is being ignorant and disrespectful it is GOOD to call them out on it, instead of allowing them to continue to do so like they are correct. I speak my mind (why have a mind if you aren’t going to use it). Never understood why it hurts people’s feelings so much that some people choose to say HAPPY HOLIDAYS… it’s not like anyone is attacking your faith… You don’t see anyone telling the people who say “merry christmas” to not say that and to say happy hanukkah instead, do you? Get over your egos and realize there is more than 1 faith out there, it’s not the end of the world if someone doesn’t say “merry christmas” to you, lol, and it’s disrespectful to be trying to force everyone to say merry christmas… not to mention futile.

    • But none of the people that you replied to dished hate, they respected that a company was willing to not be PC in order to say something as simple as a greeting during Christmas time. And you call them out for speaking their mind while you defend speaking your own mind. Just because you say they are attacking doesn’t mean they are.

      I think the issue that people have is that it isn’t that a person can’t subscribe to Christmas, but that people that do feel some sort of pressure to not announce it. I am perfectly fine with any person saying Happy Hanukkah to me because it is their holiday.

      There is such a thing as being too PC. But this isn’t what this thread is about. It just bothers me when people want to see white tigers. Merry Christmas and I hope you don’t let everything bother you so much this time of year. There is too little joy out there to worry about the context of which a blessing is meant.

    • Kid, not that there was anything valid in your argument to begin with, but you saying “Merry Christmas” invalidated your attempt at coming across as the bigger person. This guy doesn’t like people ignorantly wishing everyone a “Merry Christmas” as if everyone celebrates or even recognizes it, and for all you know he could be offended by it. So, you saying it just to spite him shows how petty and inconsiderate you are of other people’s beliefs and wishes.

      Therefore, my response to your forcing your belief on someone is that it’s time for you to grow up and stop believing in fairy tales. :)

    • @Pan
      How aren’t you banned yet? Your comments are always so ignorant and spiteful. It’s sad.

    • Because not a single comment I’ve posted is either of those things, unlike the one you just wrote to me, which is both.
      Perhaps you should post something relevant to the present topic, rather that look for someone to fling insults at. Rule #1 of this blog is “Don’t be a jerk”, so please don’t be one.

    • Pan, you’re delusional. Find something better to do with your time than harass people and make unintelligent comments online..

  • THanks for the holiday cards, but, I feel like there was a missed opprotunity to make themes. Either free or paid.

  • Happy holidays everyone and of course my very best wishes to all for the new year. May we continue to game on!

  • Merry Christmas and Hanukkah everyone! Cool year at the Playstation Blog!

  • Merry Christmas

    Joyeux Noel

  • Happy Santa Day, PlayStation Nation!

  • Happy holidays!

  • Those cards look really amazing. I wish all the best to those incredible developer who bring us joy through their games.

    Also, a special thanks to all Sony workers who will spend a big chunk of their holidays working to fend off those hackers attacks and to make sure we can play our games as soon as possible.

    Happy holidays everyone!

  • Happy Holiday !!

  • Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays, and a Merry Christmas to all.

    -Bone Natale ( Italian for Merry Christmas, look it up)

  • It will only be a happy holiday if you guys are ready for the DDoS attack this year. No doubt some insolent group of malcontents will try it from their parents’ basements.

  • Awesome I love these…the Guerrilla card is amazing,also the Warframe one.Good job everyone,and I’m surprised that there is no ND card this year.

    Well Happy Holidays everyone and lets wish for a 2016 full of gaming.

  • Merry Christmas to all the blog team. It was a fun year and we appreciate the hard work.

  • Happy holidays and Merry Christmas to you guys. The cards look amazing. Thank you and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2016

  • Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.

  • I love love love loved “Tiny Tim Schafer” In the double fine card

  • Happy Holidays Blog Crew and Thanks for everything you’ve done this past year! Enjoy and can’t wait to see even more of your hard work in 2016 and Beyond!

  • Happy holidays cant wait until lets get it 2 days away then i get my PS4 on christmas then ill play bo3 and destiny taken king

  • merry xmas to all my fellow bloggers on here and to the playstation/sony team.this was a good year for gaming and lets hope next year will be even better!

  • the holiday deals this week totally reeks. actually all 3 weeks so far. Shadow warrior? really? c’mon. you’re not even trying. and now we have notices that hackers are going to bring the service down the whole next week, you should have provided us better discounts on really good single player games so we don’t get affected that much

  • Merry Christmas and Happy all the other season’s holidays to the Blog team. Thank you for being my daily read.

    PS: I think the DDoS has already started. Had some crazy things happen to me and my co-op friend trying to play Scholar of the First Sin on PS4 last night.

  • Unfortunately, you can’t really do anything to stop DDoS attacks unless you own the internet infrastructure like Google.

  • Merry Christmas. And guess what, I have absolutely zero religious affiliation. Yay. Merry Christmas. Next we can get mad because different calendars have different new years. Yay for making others feel bad. I say as I do. No whining and not worrying that others beliefs may offend me. Boohoo:( Down with PC.

  • There’s some really great artwork here.

  • Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

  • Happy holidays to the PlayStation Powerhouse, Sids Human, and Tom Gilmore.

  • Loving these! Happy Holidays to Sony and the PS Blog and to all the wonderful developers and publishers!
    It’s going to be a great year in 2016 for PS! :D <3

  • HouseMarque is the only one that didn’t put an advertisement into their card. Happy Holidays everybody.

  • Thanks everyone that wish me a Happy Holiday and have a Happy Holiday and great 2016 to you !!

  • I’m not going on any Holiday, but I do wish everyone a Merry Christmas, stay safe…

  • Only 1 that says Merry Christmas? Why does everything have to be ruined by PC bs?

    • many of these developers employ people from around the world and as it turns out not everyone celebrates xmas. PC is annoying but if you ponder how odd it would be for Kojima Productions to send out xmas cards it may dawn on you why most opt for ‘happy holidays’ instead.

  • Thanks guys for the great work.

    …And Santa laying his finger beside his nose said, “Ho Ho Ho, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas and to all a goodnight. XD

  • this is so awesome!

  • Merry Christmas PlayStation, and May the Force Be With You.

  • Happy Holidays Sony. And pls if for any reason the servers go down fix it asap, remember most of us are grown up people who try to take advantage of this Holiday break and play some good videogames online. I guess I always have TF2 on PC, but don’t take my BF4 away this Xmas. Thx.

  • From Egypt With love :) Merry Christmas , and Happy new year everybody

  • Happy holidays to you PlayStation and all of your developers/partners. Except for Activi$ion, they stink. :v

  • Merry Christmas!
    Feliz Navidad :]

    Hoping to see amazing games on sale next week! $ony mak it happen!
