Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

We're signing off for the Christmas break today, so this will be the last main post of 2011.

However, we've made sure that there will be plenty for you to read over the festive period in between mince pies and sherry.

Expect to see round-ups of the year's biggest reviews and most important events over the next week, including our looks at Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft's years, mobile, free-to-play, politics, and the best soundbytes.

The Edge community will be as active as ever, of course, so drop in on the forum or our Facebook page to chat about what you're playing over the holidays.

Talking of which, we'll be settling down to Skyward Sword, Christmas-themed Pullblox levels, and the ever-festive Catherine. Words With Friends may well stand in for Trivial Pursuit and Risk, too.

We'll be back at full tilt in January – merry Christmas!
