PS3 Attitude Anniversary Competition; win games and gear

As you may know, we turned one year old last Sunday.

During the past 12 months, we've met a lot of great people in the videogame industry.

Of the various publishers and PR people we have worked with in order to bring you previews, reviews and information, two have stood out due to their attention, assistance and involvement - Ubisoft and Vivendi Games.

In addition to being all-round good eggs, the guys and gals at both Ubisoft and Vivendi have offered PS3 Attitude a bumper crop of goodies to give away this week by way of saying 'thank you' to all our loyal readers.

Could you be one of the lucky five people to win these great gift packs?

From Ubisoft, we have 2 gift packs containing the following:

A copy of Haze for the PS3
A Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 steel drinks mug
A Haze mini torch
A Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 poker set
A Haze notebook

From Vivendi, we have 3 gift packs containing the following:

A copy of Timeshift for the PS3
A copy of FEAR for the PS3
A copy of The Bourne Conspiracy for the PS3
A Bourne Conspiracy t-shirt

Our special thanks go to Pete, Korina and Lucy for all their help this year, and for offering these brilliant prizes.

Here's the FAQs:

How do I enter the competition?

Simple. All you have to do to for a chance of winning is sign up for our email update. Click the 'Email' button on the left sidebar (or you can click here also), enter your details and then confirm you want to sign up in the verification email that you'll receive.

Then, when you get your next email update (which goes out at around 11:00 a.m. UK time each day) you'll see confirmation that you have entered.

Only 'verified' email subscribers will be entered. That means if you sign up and don't see a verification email appear soon after in your inbox, check your spam folder. Adding news [at] ps3attitude [dot] com to your 'whitelist' or contact list will also help.

What if I'm an RSS subscriber?

That's fine - please continue to subscribe to our RSS feed. It is your way of staying in touch with the news as it happens, since the RSS feed updates each time we send out a story.

But to enter the competition, you need to subscribe to our daily email summary by following the instructions above.

What if I already subscribe via email?

You are automatically entered into this and all future PS3 Attitude competitions! If you stay subscribed, you'll gain a place in every future giveaway.

What is the prize?

Five lucky email subscribers (picked at random by our 'supercomputer') will win one of the Ubisoft or Vivendi gift packs detailed above. The packs will be allocated at random.

Who is the competition open to?

All PS3 Attitude email subscribers worldwide.

When will the winner be chosen?

We'll be picking a single winner from the current list of email subscribers on Saturday, 19th July 2008. The prizes will be sent out within 28 days of the 19th July 2008. Once chosen, we contact all winners to ask if we can use their name on the site. If we cannot contact you via email after two weeks, we reserve the right to allocate your prize to another randomly chosen winner.


Good luck, and look out for more anniversary news and announcements this week.

US PS Store updates for November 1st

The US Store also saw it's usual update and given the US hasn't been granted any of the PS Eye titles yet (save EyeCreate of course), I feel this is the second week in a row where the EU update is actually better than the US one. Which is remarkable, given what we've had to go through to this point.

Here's the list of available goodness:

  • Timeshift - demo (free)
  • Need For Speed Pro Street - demo (free)
  • Twisted Metal 2 - PS1 game ($5.99)
  • The Godfather: Don's Edition - add-on content (various costs)
  • Uncharted "Massive Attack" - trailer (free; and awesome)
  • Burnout "Annihilator" - trailer (free)
  • Burnout "Hawker" - trailer (free)
  • Burnout "Roadster" - trailer (free)
  • Beowulf - trailer (free)
  • NF5 Pro Street - TV ad (free)
  • GT5 Prologue TGS - trailer (free)
  • PS Eye - trailer (free)
  • The Bucket List - movie trailer (free)
  • Close Encounters of the Third Kind Anniversary - trailer (free)

Haven't had time to try the demos yet, but I have to say the Burnout and Uncharted trailers are stunning. Uncharted particularly looks outstanding in this trailer.
