To quote: Hi everyone! It's that time of year again when Santa gets his sleigh ready to deliver all the goodies he has been preparing and at PlayStation Store we are no different.
What better way to celebrate this festive period than by delivering some great savings on a range of the very best games?
Starting on 1st December, every 48 hours we'll post two new discounts, one for PS3 and one for PS Vita (so 24 game discounts in total across the month), as well as some great savings on movie rentals.

Make sure you keep checking PlayStation Blog for details of every deal as soon as they hit the store.
The first deal starts this Sunday 1st December so make sure you grab it before it vanishes quicker than the last mince pie! We'll be back on the day to unwrap the first treat!
In the meantime, just for a little bit of fun, why not try and guess what the first one will be?
2w ago - Following up on Sony's Ultimate PS4 FAQ which states PS4 does not feature backward compatibility, today we have some pictures and a video of what exactly happens when inserting a PS3 game disc in the PlayStation 4 console.
To quote: With the arrival of the next generation of gaming hardware in the PS4 and XBox One, it's also clear that plenty of people will be holding onto their older consoles, and just as obvious that developers will continue to make games for these legacy systems for a long while yet.
But what if you're looking to blend the past and future by jamming a game from the last gen into one of your new consoles? We've got the answers.
As a test, we took a PS3 game - Mirror's Edge, obviously. Here it is. And oh so delicately, so as not to frighten anyway, inserted it into our shiny new PS4.
The menu pop-up was less than reassuring. And the result even less so.
This doesn't come as any surprise, backwards compatibility was never supposed to be a part of the PS4 ecosystem and at least in this case the console identifies the fact that it's a PS3 disc, unlike the XBox One which...
To quote: Hello guys, i am new here but i want to share a tool I made for Dualshock 4 controllers. I was inspired by the tool made by Scarlet.Crush for DS3.
My tool works in similar fashion and is based on source code from DS3 Scp Tool.
It works though without messing with the original drivers for DS4. Uses DirectInput to XInput mapping. You still need to install drivers for SCP virtual bus device and possible X360 Controller drivers.
Currently all buttons/Axis work like they should. No support for rumble and controlling light to indicate controller number.
Shortly I will make a video demonstrating the tool.

2w ago - Spearhead Games Co-founder Simon Darveau shared a video today announcing that Tiny Brains is launching on December 3rd for PlayStation 4.
To quote: Hi! It's Simon from Spearhead Games, here again to talk about our upcoming PS4 co-op puzzler Tiny Brains. We finished our very last updates earlier this week, and we're finally done - it feels so weird to write that after Tiny Brains consumed my entire life for more than a year, but it's true.
The whole team is incredibly proud to be bringing Tiny Brains to PS4 on December 3rd. Thanks to PlayStation's support of indies, we were given the option to be featured on PlayStation Plus for the launch - it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up!
So look out for Tiny Brains soon, and in the meantime, I wanted to share our brand new launch trailer, and tell you a bit about how we're trying to get you back in the living room for some old school co-op with a next-gen twist.
When I was a kid, one of the best feelings in the world was getting a new game and rushing home to call my friends to come over and play. Crowded together in front of the screen, all excited to game late into the night; elbowing for room on the couch, gloating and swapping tips - these things are what gave me a lifelong love of video games.
