PlayStation Blog: Show Us Your Gaming Costume? And Win!
Today the PlayStation Blog's PR Manager Jill Webber shared the following contest for those interested:
The PlayStation.Blog is getting into the Halloween spirit. We're currently digging into our "spooky" catalog of games such as SIREN: Blood Curse, the "Skate to Victory" ghost level in LittleBigPlanet, the new All Hallow's Eve ball pack and downloadable costumes in High Velocity Bowling, and the newly-released BUZZ! Quiz TV Horror Pack full of over 500 horror movie trivia questions. Check out a few of them below:
WHAT WAS THE SURNAME OF THE FAMILY WHO MOVED INTO THE HAUNTED HOUSE IN 'THE AMITYVILLE HORROR'?
WHO DIRECTED THE ORIGINAL 2004 'SAW' FILM?
* JAMES WAN
* DARREN LYNN BOUSMAN
* DAVID HACKL
* LEIGH WHANNELL
IN 'THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT', THE FILMMAKERS BECOME LOST AFTER MIKE DOES WHAT TO THE MAP?
* KICKS IT INTO THE RIVER
* EATS IT
* RIPS IT UP
* THROWS IT ON THE FIRE
Just to provide a little added incentive to get you into the spirit, we're announcing a costume contest. The rules are simple: dress up as one of your favorite Sony Computer Entertainment characters (e.g. BUZZ!, the game show host from the BUZZ! games, Sackboy, Kratos, Sly Cooper, Jak, Daxter, Ratchet, Clank etc.) and submit a photo of yourself in costume holding up a PlayStation branded controller or PSPsystem.
Email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00 PM PST on November 3, 2008 (that gives you all of Halloween weekend to capture an image of yourself in costume).
Your favorite Social Media Manager, Jeff Rubenstein, will use his good judgment based on 50% originality of costume and 50% likeness of character to select the top FIVE costumes out of all of the submissions. We'll then post the final five on the blog on November 5, 2008 on or about 9:00 AM PST and allow you, the readers, to vote. The three submissions with the most votes win. Vote by clicking on the radio button that corresponds with your selection. We'll close voting at 5:00 PM PST Friday, November 7, 2008 and announce the winners on the Blog that following Monday, November 10, 2008.
The costume that receives the most votes will win a PLAYSTATION® 3 80 GB system. The second place costume will receive a PSP® 3000 system. The third place costume will receive PlayStation Network vouchers valued at $50.00 USD.
And because we are having so much fun testing each other with the BUZZ! Quiz TV Horror pack, we're adding another little challenge to our costume contest. The individual with the best BUZZ! game show host costume (judged solely by Jeff) based on 50% originality of costume and 50% likeness of character will be awarded a PlayStation Network voucher for the horror quiz pack, in addition to a BUZZ! Quiz TV bundle.
So, get started on creating those costumes; we can't wait to see what you come up with. Good luck and Happy Halloween!
