The MCV team would like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a prosperous and happy New Year.
We'd also like to thank you for all your support during 2008 as MCV and MCVuk.com goes from strength to strength, and maintains its position as the leading source of games industry news and coverage.
We're now off for the Christmas break, but don't despair: we have news and regular content planned to roll out across the next week, including more of our review of the year and chart updates for those in the retail and publishing community.
We'll also be covering any breaking stories that emerge over the holiday period.
Otherwise, full news coverage will resume on January 2nd.
See you in the New Year.
