PSXE Contest: We'll Help You Pay For Your PS4

Not a lot happens in the video game industry during the summer. So let's spice things up.

Let's say you're planning on purchasing the PlayStation 4 this holiday season. ...or let's just say you want to win some cold hard cash. Either way, we suggest you pay attention.

We're holding a one-month competition of sorts, which begins today and will run through the middle of August. We won't give you an exact ending date 'cuz we want you to act sooner rather than later. But you've got several weeks, anyway, and all you have to do is this-

Become part of the PSXE community in a variety of ways. The assembled community here is the source of much pride, and it remains our trademark. Therefore, if you want to be considered for the grand prize, all you have to do is get involved; i.e., follow us on Twitter, Like us on Facebook, and sign up for our newsletter, which typically goes out twice a week. With a few simple clicks, you'll be registered into the random drawing.

Thing is, you won't know from whence we'll select the winner's name, so you should probably do it all. Maybe we'll choose from our Twitter followers, maybe from Facebook...or maybe we'll see someone participating a lot in the Comments on the main page, or in our Forums. Maybe we'll notice that you've contributed a few User Reviews here and there. Who knows? The point is that we want you to join the PSXE family if you haven't already. The only caveat is that you must be a US citizen to be eligible.

And the winner will receive this- $120; we figure that's $100 off the price of the PS4, and $20 to pick up something on the PlayStation Network. But this isn't gift cards; it's money. You can do whatever the hell you want with it. And the best part? If we get a great turnout, we'll do it again for August. There. Summer is a little more exciting now, isn't it? ;)

Well, there goes my enthusiasm out the window. I already follow on Twitter, FB, and comment here. But I ain't American, so never mind.

It's probably time that I find an additional community that cares about Canadians.

Has nothing to do with "caring about Canadians." We're paying in American currency. Any idea what sort of pain in the ass it is to give random people money across borders?

Psst, Ben... It's not very hard to transfer money to accounts abroad. It's roughly speaking as much pain in the ass as paying a regular bill on your banks website. It only takes a bit longer before the transaction is completed.
I know this cause we married in Cyprus (and are living in Norway) so money were flying across borders the weeks prior to that event.

The recipient can then choose to take out that money in their local currency if they wish. International banking has come a long way. :)

Beamboom: Psst...the winner might get something besides money, which must be shipped, anyway...not EVERYTHING on the planet can be done digitally.

If you ask previous winners of our contests, some will say they got a little extra more than they won, and none of it can be delivered electronically.

And lastly, the POINT is to get more US readers. You may not have noticed, but we have an abnormal number of readers from anywhere but the US. That's not a bad thing but the US presence should be increased.

I receive the newsletter and I follow you on Facebook. Does that mean I am in? Do I have a fighting chance? I am an unemployed full-time student, so it would be awfully awesome to win some cash to purchase a PS4.

Also, I have been with Xbox this past gen and I think it is time to go back to good old Sony.

I can't participate in cheap ways to bring more traffic to the website, Facebook, and twitter. Sorry. Hope you understand. It's just not in my heritage. Some people here already do this. Heck, I visit this site daily. Even though I don't always comment, I still get my news from here.

I also thought you hated Facebook and all these social media networks(?)

I'm just keeping it real. Although, I do understand since this is a one-man website.

Got news for ya pal- Almost every contest or giveaway on the face of the planet is designed specifically for business. Have you not yet looked under a Snapple cap to see if you've won "Nothing?" Didja grab a large fries from McDonalds when passing by because you needed one last Monopoly piece? Did you ever hear those radio contests where it's "listen and win?"

"Against your heritage?" ...get over yourself.

Don't stress Ben, I am the most understanding human being to walk this earth. No need to attack me like an African Black Mamba. These "business" practices you speak of usually go one way. Anyway, there are many other ways to reel in fish to your website. This particular way I don't approve of. Nothing that forces me to create a tweet account or Facebook account will I ever appprove for any reason.

But that's just me :)

You didn't read, obviously. I didn't say you had to follow on Twitter or Facebook. You could contribute in other ways, like the Comments or the Forums or signing up for the Newsletter or submitting User Reviews.

You talk about "keeping it real." I'm the only one doing that.

I did. When it comes to money, people can be absolute di*** if they feel excluded. I just accept that.

It's part of the infectious entitlement disease that's sweeping the entire world. The funny part is that just about everyone who posts here normally is automatically entered...they don't even get that it's a way to increase the size of the community. All they see is money, and they're not able to get it.

But like I said, I knew that going in. ;)

Money is currency. Money moves mountains. Money is IMO, a cheap way to do things. It can be manipulative. How about... You buy the winner a Ps4? Of course this is asking too much from you, but I'd rather have something else other than currency.

But again, this is just me. My way of seeing things.

I don't get that..you'd rather have a free ps4 but it's a problem giving cash to somebody to help pay for a ps4? Makes no sense honestly..ps4 still cost money, so you're essentially saying you want a free $400 value console opposed to taking free cash..at the end of the day everything involves money...every major business performs some form of advertising to boost sales and traffic...trying to understand your opinion but it just doesn't seem well thought out..

Oh man! Again I can't participate in a giveaway, but that's ok because maybe in a parallel world I'll be joining giveaways in this website and will be playing a FFVII remake in my PS4 very soon! OK I just made myself LOL on that one.

Seriously staying on topic, maybe there are other forms of giveaways. For example, a simple 20 or 50 dollars PSN card (american), but you must specify "with CAPS" that you need to have a US account. You buy the card Ben, give the code via e-mail, and BOOM! one happy foreign follower of this site. Just an idea. Other thing to ponder when is about money, is that you have eligible all of those who have a paypal account, or zip code, etc. Some people live in the border and have access to those things, or they don't own them but have relatives who do. Just throwing ideas here.

Those giveaways were fun to participate in.

Looks like you're stuck, whether you like it or not. If you feel like you don't matter, then it's because "you" feel like you don't matter. Their is nothing "blessed" about being American, any American will tell you the same. A misunderstanding from an already skewed perspective is trouble any day, but let's make one thing clear. On PSXextreme, there is a mutual respect between everyone that chooses to let their opinion known on this site (whether or not you are a big or small part of this site), regardless of origin, country, or monetary status. It is not a lack of respect from Dutka's end, it's a lack of respect from yours because there is a conflict between your ideal of right in this situation, and with someone else's choice that you have no control over. Plain and simple... but copying and pasting your ideals onto other people will only lead to disapppointment. Such is the harshness of reality, attacking Dutka's integrity, decision, and character will gain you nothing.

To anyone who complains about me giving away my own money in an effort to expand the community, go pound sand.

To anyone who doesn't get the concept of this- It's not necessarily FOR the people who are already here. It's for those who AREN'T. I would think, rather than being a selfish prick, someone who actually cares about PSXE would be more interested in growing the community.

But hey, sorry about giving away my money. Really. I do apologize for only making it available to about 350 million people. I apologize for not making it available to the entire world. Totally my bad.

Think this is a great idea! It would be nice to see an influx of new members. Sometimes I feel like I know exactly what some of you are going to post on an article just by glancing at your username! Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, just would be nice to get a whole bunch of different points of view.

Ben - don't worry about the whiners. They will never ever go away. That's an expected part of any group dynamic. You can't please everyone........

Welcome to the comments thread, and thanks for making yourself known to the rest of the PSXE community.

It's always good to have new blood letting their opinions be known.

I'll be the first to say that I hope to hear more from you in the future.

I was the same as you at one time, I "lurked" for a good couple years to get a feel for how the community was before taking the plunge into making my thoughts known on the site.

Now, I feel like just as much of a regular as everyone else, even though my busy schedule doesn't always allow me to comment on every article, or the on the same day that the article was originally made.

This was a great idea guys. I have been receiving the newsletter via email for a very long time. While I did not comment on many articles, I've been interested in what many have said. This contest is finally drawing me out of my cave and into the PSXE community. Glad to be here.

Heh. This would be right up my ally, except I'm not a US citizen. Boo.

True story: I won my PS2 back in November 2001 in a raffle. I paid $1 for a single ticket. And this raffle had a bunch of people who spent quite a bit, including one couple who spent about $120 between them (more than a third of the cost of the PS3 at the time). They were not happy, as you can imagine.

Me, I was overjoyed. Among all my college roommates, I was the one who wanted the PS2 the most because I was the biggest Final Fantasy fan, and I was the one who could lease afford the PS2. The PS2 didn't get opened until FFX dropped some 6 weeks later, but MAN it was sweet.

I still have that PS2 in perfect working order to this day. Could do with a cleaning though. :)

Cool contest. Sign me up for the newsletter.
This is the only gaming website I'm fond of.
People here have real discussions and tend to keep things very civil-
unlike other gamesites where it feels as though a majority of unsupervised youths are constantly engaged in a pissing contest.

Maybe change the title to "we'll help you pay for your PS4, your Vita, or your PS4+Vita Bundle, you choose" ???

I donĀ“t know if the bundle is confirmed tho. The idea is throwing the vita there too.

Lol, remember... There are other means of entry like say, participating in the comments and forums, submitting reviews. You simply need to be a part of the community.

This is ridiculous (in a good way). Barely 104 comments, supposing almost half of them are from foreign readers. That's a ridiculous amount of winning percentage. I also suppose, those who are following in twitter, and liked the facebook page are readers from here too, so you guys have an excellent amount of chances to win this thing!

I've said it once and I'll say it again (and I'm not just doing it to win brownie points in order to win) but I LOVE that you guys do these sorts of things for your loyal followers! Ever since finding this site I come here daily and see many of the same people partaking and hardly ever is it a waste of time to read the comments and hear the thoughts of the PSXE family. I'm glad I found such a great place to get unbiased news, reviews, and information for anything and everything Playstation.

Wow, don't know how I missed this pay for your ps4 thing but just finished catching up on the comments section. Shit got REAL back in July, huh? I've decided that I should receive a ribbon for NOT complaining about any of it. Or for being oblivious to it. You decide but I'd like a ribbon or else I'm going to get upset. Also, I'd like you to send it to Europe or better yet YOU go to Europe and then send it back to the states and maybe do it electronically? Because that makes sense.

FYI-

This will be continued for a couple more weeks. It gives more people time to kick in (like Gorilla Biscuit here); I realize people are off doing stuff in summer. :)
