Ho Ho Ho!

 

Christmas is almost here and we are sure most of you will ask to the adorable 'santa-sackboy' to bring you a PS4 or, if you have one already, one of the PS4 games. In the meantime 'Santa sack-boy' little helpers has a lot of goodies to give away!! Who wants one?

 

Let me introduce you all the PlayStation Community Advent calendar!!

 

 

But, one second, Do we all know how the chocolate calendar works? Well this is similar.

 

As you can see 'Santa sackboy' has one window for each of the days from the 01.12.2013 till the 25.12.2013. If you click on them, a pop up with questions in some languages will appear. Look for the one you can understand and reply with a creative Doodle!!!

 

Each day will have a winner but please note that you will be able to open only one window per day, so don't miss any days without visiting the PlayStation forums.

 

Winners will be announced after the advent period, so keep answering everyday and your chances to win will be massive!!!!

 

HAVE A MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

  • Click on the day in the advent calendar in date order.  3rd December being number 3 :Thumbs:

  • Read the Question provided behind the numbered door in the relevant language.

  • Answer the question via a drawing and upload and post the image to this thread to enter!
