Celebrate the dawn of 2010 and throw a New Year's Eve party with PlayStation.
While you're waiting for guests to arrive, browse the thousands of games, films and comics available at PlayStation Store and start downloading. That way, you can spend New Year's Day relaxing on the sofa with a stack of entertainment to work through.
If there are children at the party, introduce them to EyePet on PlayStation 3 while you're polishing off the nibbles. See their faces light up as their own cute pet springs to life right there in the living room. They can pet him, feed him, bathe him and clothe him using their own hands, a PlayStation Eye camera and the magic card that comes with the game.
Say goodbye to 2009 for good with a Buzz! quiz session on its key events. With Buzz!: Quiz World and Buzz!: Quiz TV on PS3, you and your friends can grab a set of Buzz! Buzzers and play custom made quizzes submitted by the community at MyBuzzQuiz.com. Music lover? Try the Noughties Music quizzes. If you know your sport, then give yourself a real test with a quiz purely on England's Bromsgrove Rovers Football Club.
With some preparation, you could build a stylish countdown to 2010 in LittleBigPlanet on PS3 or PSP. Start by creating a replica of a well known New Year's Eve landmark, complete with a mechanical hand that reaches 12 and triggers a series of fireworks and a banner wishing your guests a Happy New Year. For the icing on the cake, connect a row of magnetic switches to a sequence of piano sound effects. Then, with a little patience and some musical talent, you can tweak them to play Auld Lang Syne at the stroke of midnight. Publish the level earlier that day so the LBP community can join in the celebration and ring in the new year with Sackboy.
It's time for everyone to pull on their dancing shoes and step up to the microphone for some serious SingStar sessions. It's now easier than ever to browse the hundreds of downloadable tracks in the SingStore and view the community videos at My SingStar Online - just download the SingStar Viewer, free from PlayStation Store. It lets you access the SingStar universe direct from the PS3 XMB (XrossMediaBar) and without the need of a SingStar disc. Which song will you use to kick-start 2010?
Shove the sofas against the wall, lock away anything smashable and get down to your own personal party playlist with VidZone. You could bring together all of your favourite music videos from the last year, or maybe your playlist will look forward to the acts you think will be huge in the next 12 months. Whatever you pick, let your feet do the talking.
January 2010 is three hours old and your guests will start to trickle away so they can write in the diary the resolutions that they're definitely going to keep this year. Why not pick a more exciting New Year's resolution, like launching your own career in motorsport? Download the GT Academy Time Trial from PlayStation Store, set a quick lap time and you could find yourself driving for the Nissan PlayStation racing team before 2011 is out.
Whatever your plans, enjoy your New Year's Eve party and have a terrific 2010 with PlayStation.
