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

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?

My overall PS3 exclusive was God Of War 3. The boss fights were so epic and the graphics were just amazing! Never gets old seeing Kratos rip off a head… or two. :)

My favortie PlayStation 3 game would have to be a huge firmware update that we havn’t gotten since Fw 2.4. I hope 2011 is the year sony drops the long awaited Cross Game Voice Chat, and Voice Messages the community has long been asking for.

P.s. the 2011 software lineup has me smiling, but not the F.W updates : (

Fave PSP Game: Vector TD (Mini) Yes, a bunch of great PSP games came out, but I didn’t buy them. Thanks to PS+ I got Vector TD, and loved it.

Fave PS3 Game: Red Dead Redemption A great ending to an epic story, and the multiplayer keeps me coming back. Its one of few games I bought all the DLCs for. (I also love the DCUO Beta, but that’s next year.)

2010 was such an amazing year to be a PlayStation gamer. SO many great exclusives and with all the AMAZING First Party games for 2011, they need to invent an extra day and hour!

Happy Holidays SCEA!

My favorite game for 2010 is a toss up between Heavy Rain and God of War III.

As #11 said, hopefully we’ll see Tetsuya Nomura drop in with exlusive announcements on Final Fantasy Versus XIII & Kingdom Hearts III.

You forgot the Ratchet and Clank announcement and the kevin butler appearance at e3 and Ape escape ps3’s announcement and The last guardian coming out in 2011, but whatever =D

I’d have to say Sly Collection was my favourite, as it was 3 awesome games in 1. IMO GT5 was just more of the same, gow3 was more of a button masher and gore fest than it was a enjoyable game, heavy rain didn’t really feel like a game, and mag was underwhelming to play. Only Modnation Racers was anything special to me, and because it was more limiting than LBP i only play it every now and then unlike lbp. Though if lbp2 had came out this year, It would have been my GOTY over every game i’ve played this year(including mario galaxy 2.) Even the BETA was more fun than any other game i played this year, and that’s saying something. Ah well. Happy Holidays PlayStation, and the best of luck for 2011 being the best year for ps3 yet!

Favorite PS3 game would have to be Sports Champions (Pure family fun)
PSN game would easily be Tumble for its innovation.
PSP I only play Monster hunter freedom

Heres to hoping for an easy 3d solution for 2011.

Oh and best game was 3D Dot Game Heroes, hands down. I also loved Singularity and Dark Void (despite the less than stellar reviews for the latter). And I’m gonna say best PSP game was Valkyria Chronicles 2 even though I haven’t started it yet, or beat the first one lol!

This year was my first year with a PlayStation 3. Out of the games that I bought this year (at budget prices. pay less, get more!) including (but not limited to) inFamous, Uncharted 1-2 (GOTY), Ratchet Future 1, Assassin’s Creed 1, and God of War Collection, I’d have to say Uncharted 2 was my favorite game this year. The PS3 also marks the first time ever that I had more than four games with a system my first year of having it because of actually being able to work and being a lot stingier with money (the highest record was back in 12/25/2006-2007 with four PSP games). To me, by Christmas day I’m going to have an astonishing 13 games just for PS3 and that’s pretty huge to me. Though when Christmas comes my only 2010 game will be Enslaved (it was just $25 bucks, I couldn’t say no!) I’m excited to be brought up to speed in the PlayStation realm. Looking forward to next year where I can pick up other games I missed out on and rent the new titles that get released!

Favorite PS3 game is actually a tie between GT5 and Super Street Fighter 4. GT5 is the reason I have a PS3, and Street Fighter is probably the reason I’m still a gamer.
