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.
