Ring in 2012 with some amazing PlayStation entertainment and make it a New Year to remember.
It's nearly time to see in the New Year, so gather all the party essentials: food, drinks and an unbeatable selection of PlayStation entertainment to start 2012 with a bang.
The snacks are in the oven and your guests are on the way - so it's the ideal time to plan your evening. Hop on to VidZone and organise your perfect party playlist. There are plenty of free music videos to choose from to suit any mood, so pick some great tunes and personalise the way you say goodbye to 2011 and hello to 2012.
Get the party started and your friends and family warmed up with the competitive spirit. Blast your brain cells with Buzz!: The Ultimate Music Quiz for PSP, available on PlayStation Network, to put your music knowledge to the test, and then get everyone off the couch with Brunswick Pro Bowling and After Hours Athletes on PS3. Both titles use the PlayStation Move motion controller and PlayStation Eye camera to bring some sporting genius to your evening.
And don't forget about the kids - you can free up the TV by switching their EyePet fun over to EyePet Adventures on PSP before bedtime. Then they can take their magical best friend wherever they go.
With things in full swing, the energy levels should be reaching a high point, which is the perfect time to whip out DanceStar Party on PS3 to see who has the groove to match 40 foot-stomping hits, including We No Speak Americano, OMG and Born This Way.
If your guests are still in the dancing mood, then bring the smooth criminals out to play with Michael Jackson The Experience. The PS3 title lets you dance to hits such as Thriller and Dirty Diana using PlayStation Move, while crooning to the lyrics thanks to the Wireless SingStar Microphones. Who's Bad?
Before you start the big countdown, take advantage of the singing mood by heading to the SingStore, the download store for SingStar on PS3. Choose from thousands of songs across all genres - everyone will get the chance to belt out a song they love.
With the music blasting, don't forget to ring in the New Year - it's time to slam on your VidZone party playlist to celebrate in style. If Santa delivered a BRAVIA 3D TV and some compatible glasses down your chimney, you can watch the televised New Year fireworks in a new dimension and enjoy the incredible eye-popping display without the outdoor heat.
It's 2012, so make sure you keep your PlayStation Eye camera out and wish all your loved ones on your PlayStation Network Friends List a very Happy New Year with the voice and video chat feature on your PlayStation 3. Party poppers and hats are optional...
