PS3 Attitude’s Platinum Community Member of the Month – October

Submitted by on Thursday, 30 September 201043 Comments

The first ever Platinum Community Member of the Month competition has been a resounding success.  We’ve seen a drastic increase in both the number of overall comments, as well as the average number of comments per article.  We’d like to thank all of you that have partaken in this event and helped propel PS3 Attitude to where it is today.

While we won’t be ready to roll out the winners of September’s contest until next week, that’s not going to stop us from letting you know what we’re giving away for October.

Before divulging those juicy details, we want to give a quick recap of the rules.  Last month we told you that you needed to leave us quality comments to win.  Well, thanks to the great community the ante has been upped even further.  The biggest thing we’ve learned from the first month of this contest is that you readers are an intelligent bunch.  You have to leave some solid comments to really stand out.  Simply posting one-liners to pad your comment stats isn’t going to cut it.  We’re all for fun banter back and forth between readers and not every article requires a detailed response, but if you want a legitimate shot at winning, you’ll need more than a comment that just says ‘cool’.  The more good comments you leave, the better chance you have to win.

Since that business is out of the way, let’s get to the good stuff.  We’ve changed how we handle our prizes this month.  Rather than giving away titles that come out during the same month of the contest, we’re going to be setting our sights to the following month.  That way, you can know you won the prize before the game actually comes out, and we can have it delivered to you much closer to the actual release date – although release date delivery is not guaranteed.

Without further ado, here they are:

First Place Winner: Collector's Edition of Gran Turismo 5

Second Place Winner: Standard Edition of Call of Duty: Black Ops

Third Place Winner: Standard Edition of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood

What do you think?  Not bad, eh?

Another change we made this month is the ability to ‘swap’ your prize.  Say you win the copy of Gran Turismo 5 but already have it preordered and paid off.  We’ll be more than happy to let you pass it for one of the other two prizes we’re giving away.  of course, each prize can only be claimed once, so the third place winner will always only have one choice.

Also – we’re not promising anything – but we may have a couple of additional smaller prizes to give to some of our ‘honorable mentions’ peeps.

As we’re sure you’ve guessed, this contest runs through the entire month of October but be sure you stop by often and leave us with your thoughts.  The prizes we’re giving out for September are quite good and with October only getting better, we’re expecting a fierce competition.

Once again, we’d like to thank all of you out there for making PS3 Attitude what it is today.  Without you guys, this site wouldn’t exist.  We also ask that you remember that this is all done for charity.  Every visit to the site, donation to our cause and preorder link you purchase through helps our charity, which is really why we’re running this competition.

So keep gaming, keep coming back and keep commenting.  We always look forward to reading what you have to say.
