Talking Point: Has Father Christmas Added to Your PlayStation Backlog?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Tell us about your gaming gifts

Christmas may be about a lot of different things, but we’d be lying if we said that we didn’t predominantly enjoy the gifts. In addition to gigantic roast dinners and terrible television shows, sharing presents has become a pivotal part of the festive experience – and we want to know whether you received any new games to keep you occupied over the winter break.

If you asked for something specific off your family or friends, did they manage to fulfil your wish? Was it a particular new game that you wanted, or were you in the market for something a little bigger – say, a PlayStation 4? Maybe the cavalcade of critically acclaimed PlayStation Vita titles has convinced you to snag Sony’s handheld machine – but are you impressed with the portable so far?

Big or small, it doesn’t really matter – we still want to know everything about your PlayStation haul. Did you receive any fresh software, and have you managed to take it for a spin yet? Maybe you gave out some gaming gifts, instead – and in which case, what did you buy for whom and why?

Wrap us up in your wintery world via the comments section below. Remember that you can attach images by uploading your festive photographs to a site such as and bookmarking the provided URL with the tags [img][/img]. We hope that you’re all having a brilliant day. And on the off-chance that you’re not, remember: it’ll all be over soon.

Nope, no gift for me. Last time I got a gift is when I'm in high school, junior one. But my ps backlog is so large that I know I can't finish them

In a roundabout way. Got a gift card for Gamestop, so that might add quite a bit to my backlog. I may just use it to pre-order Final Fantasy 14 though, or pre-order Lightning returns. That Cloud costume is undeniably one of the biggest things I'm looking forward to this coming year. That's including all the amazing games coming to PS4.

I just got Need for Speed: Rivals and the PS4 camera gaming wise for Christmas, so my backlog hasn't change much.



RaymanFan2 said:

Not much this year, in fact. I got myself Arkham Origins but it's yet to arrive.



Doctor_BK said:

Oh yeah! Got a PS4, Killzone: Shadow Fall, NBA 2K14, Battlefield 4, and NFS: Rivals. It'll be a busy break.



turtlelink said:

I got Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition! Wanted Dragon's Crown (Vita) as well but didn't get it. Oh well, lol.



Tasuki said:

Just got Lego Marvel for the PS4 so I can play that with my son. Also got The Walking Dead Season 2 as well.



Gamer83 said:

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate for Vita and I'll use some of the cash I got to payoff Thief and inFamous: Second Son.

I haven't gotten any games in Christmas, but my backlog incresse, since I have to use my precious time on Family.

My parents gave me a shiny new PS Vita along with a copy of Tearaway. I wasn't able to play it at all on Christmas Day because there wasn't a Memory Card, so I got a 16GB Mega Pack today. I also received a $50 EB Games gift card from my brother and his family, which I used to buy a Starter Kit and $10 of PS Store credit. I'm seriously considering using it on the PS3 version of The Sly Cooper Trilogy using my email gift voucher, as long as it supports cross-buy.

I only got God of War Ascension and the Plus freebies(DMC and Borderlands 2) wich are great, really hope to get to playing them



rjejr said:

Wii U - SM3DW - all yesterday morning; Skylanders Swap Force - yesterday afternoon; Lego Marvel - kids are playing it now
PS3 - R&C: HD collection - last night

And Santa left the blu ray Gamera Trilogy in my stocking. We've been watching the old 60's movies after school, my kids should be blown away by the new 90's Gamera.

Sad notes - Ninjini wont register, and all the Pokemon cards were bogus. Bad Santa.

Father Christmas didn't but Sony sure did with that PS+ update. Enjoying Borderlands 2 at the moment. A nice improvement over the average original. I'm going to need a new Vita memory card tho as I'm finally at the point where my 4GB just ain't cutting it anymore. Surprised it's lasted this long lol Should be able to make do with Soul Sacrifice till then
