Fast & Furious PS3 Prize Pack Winner Selected And Announced!

Okay, so the time has come.

For the past five weeks, we have been running our grand giveaway, which consists of a snazzy Fast & Furious PlayStation 3 Prize Pack. All you had to do to enter was sign up to follow PSX Extreme on Twitter, and then we'd choose the winner at random. Well, we've done just that, and the name that popped up magically before our eyes was-

Swavey83 - Craig

Now, whoever this is, he needs to e-mail me at my e-mail address (found in the About Us section) with his acceptance of the prize and his address information. If for whatever reason I never get an e-mail or the prize is refused - I think a lot of people who signed up already have a PS3, but probably wouldn't mind having this package - we'll select another name. We'll also have to if Swavey83 here didn't follow the rules (like, you have to reside within the U.S.), specifically outlined in the original story.  For now, this is the winner and we extend a heartfelt congratulations. We'll update this story with new details soon; just stay tuned.

The promotion was a great success. Over 1,000 people signed up to follow us at Twitter, and we promise to keep posting mini-updates as time goes on. We love to tease stuff over there, so if we've got a big hands-on coming, or we're already playing the review copy of a game that has yet to see release, we'll tell ya about it. Just hit the little Twitter icon at the top of the PSXE main page, if you don't know already. Thanks to all!

well done bro,
now I just hope that you followed the terms and conditions and live in the US!
(if I wasn't living in the UK I'd be hoping differently, I wouldn't mind another PS3 for use in another room- saves transporting time :p)

I just got a little excited for a second because my name is Craig but then I realized it wasn't my user name :( But congrats other Craig. If for some reason he decides not to claim his prize, you can just give it to me since we have the same name :)

I'll be honest here, if I won, I was going to sell this and put the money towards a youth travel trip to Vietnam.
I felt guilty, but I joined in anyway. ; D

Congratulations Craig.

Yes, it was a quick high and a not so great low but it's okay cause I've had a PS3 since launch and it's been worth all $600 :) I was probably just gonna give it to my brother or a friend. And plus, I hate Fast and the Furious. If I'm gonna watch a movie about cars, especially on blu-ray, to listen to the sweet sounds, I would much prefer Gone in 60 Seconds :)

Swavey swoops in for the win! Nice. For all you weirdos complaining about the F&F movie, I wouldn't say that's the big prize here ... I'm just saying.
