Happy Holidays From Us To You

Unbelievably, another year has gone by (time went fast!) and it's once again time to wish everyone out there a very happy holiday and a Merry Christmas.

In a year that saw the debut of the PSXE Show in PlayStation Home (which is already on its 7th episode and has spawned t-shirts for your avatars), the introduction of our YouTube Channel, more eclectic interviews ranging from Insomniac to Playboy model Jo Garcia, and more members than ever before, the PSXE staff once again thanks all its valued readers.

We will continue to bring you the very best PlayStation coverage in 2012, which is shaping up to be another exciting year. More big games, the possible announcement of the PS4, and other events might be in store, and we hope all our readers will be along for the ride. We'll come up with more giveaways, and as always, you are free to post in the Comments and Forums if you wish to become involved in the ongoing discussions here at PSXE. Also, don't forget to submit your User Reviews and even wallpaper designs, if you so choose.

Thanks to all. We'd never get anywhere without you. :)

Is some Atheist tit thumbs downing every reference to Christmas? lol i'm sorry they don't approve, but come on. Just because you don't celebrate it, doesn't mean you cant be tolerant to others beliefs :P

Merry Christmas to everyone :)

Have a Merry Christmas everyone! :-)

In case people want to read it, an editorial of mine is featured in the Christmas Day edition of the Hartford Courant.

This particular batch of downthumbs lends credence to the theory that some sort of spam bot is causing some of them. Who would take the time to click on *all* of the holiday wishes? I can see someone objecting to "God bless", but Snaaaake's comment?

Not even _____________ is that much of a curmudgeon.

Anywho, happy holidays (all of them...I'm not being PC) to everyone, *especially* to the downthumbs grinch if there really is one.

Problem is, you have to be logged on to click on thumbs, unless there is a technical loophole somewhere.

Merry Christmas all! Killing time till Christmas morning (mind you, as a 31 year old grown ass man who somehow keeps spending his Christmas eves in his grandma's house while his family passes out at like 10 pm [?!] on the floors below) and couldn't not take the opportunity to thank you all for contributing wha is, to me, one of the very best video game communities on the Internet. Hope Santa brings you all everything your hearts desire! Look forward to continuing our conversation in 2012 :)

Thank you PSXE for supplying worthy news, a welcoming website, and a genuinely great place to read about and discuss games!

Also thank you to every single person who posts in the comments section. I think I've been around for at least 3-4 years and although the community has grown a lot since I joined, the atmosphere and discussion has not changed much! That speaks volumes about the website and type of readers that are involved here! It's the only place on the net I go to where I can look forward to news updates about gaming but also know I'm going to get an educated, and engaging discussion.

Merry Christmas to you all, I also look forward to another great year in gaming and discussion!

This is the best Playstation site on the net guys, I hope it keeps up the momentum and grows twice as much next year!

A serious side note to Ben, you might have to start grooming someone to give you a hand if you plan to keep up with everything next year. I don't know how you do it all on your own as it is. You must have a limitless supply of energy.

Have a great week, people. This year hasn't been all that special, but I haven't had much to complain about so I guess that's good.

Also, remember to keep a big glass of water by your bed before you leave home. Hangovers are no fun, whatever the occasion.
