PULSE 12/20 Edition: The Year in Review

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Dec 20, 2011 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

As 2011 draws to a close, join Christina Lee for a look back at some of the year’s most memorable games. From Sackboy’s return in LittleBigPlanet 2 to Nathan Drake’s epic adventure in UNCHARTED 3: Drake’s Deception, this year was one of the biggest in recent memory. From the big shooters like Killzone 3 and Battlefield 3 to surprises such as PSN exclusives Eufloria and inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood, the year also included a dramatic redesign of PlayStation Home and a beautiful compilation of the beloved Ico & Shadow of the Colossus collection. We know this only scratches the surface and there’s plenty of titles PULSE didn’t have time to mention, but we hope you enjoy a walk through another amazing year for our industry.

And, remember you can watch the full edition of PULSE from the ‘What’s New’ section on your XMB later today when the PlayStation Store updates.

Have a safe and happy holiday and look for PULSE to return in mid-January.

Don’t ever let Christina leave! Qore is already weird enough now.

I still need to get God of War Origins Collection, but 1st i’ll platinum the other collection. xD

And, of course, AC Revelations, ah… awesome game + awesome MP. And that Oddworld game looks a little bit like Jak and Daxter. o_O

By the way, メリークリスマス Christina Lee! <3

This video reminded me of something I would really like. How about digital download versions of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus HD?
