Below is a video of it in action, and to quote from PSGroove: "Heden, of Team DeLiGhT, has sent us a festive scene intro/homebrew.
The app displays a happy New Year's greeting, and displays some nifty animated graphics."
We also would like to extend a Happy New Year 2011 to everyone, and for those who missed it we are pleased to announce that the integration work is done and we are now able to promote any post or reply made on our PS3 Forums directly to our Site News.
This means while the post or reply can be made in our Member News section it is no longer a requirement, so if you have something to share just post away and with the click of a button we can mainpage it in 2011!

PlayStation 3 owners who love GT5 will definitely appreciate this new PS3 bundle, if you don't mind spending about $420 US for it of course.
