PSXE Blue PlayStation 3 Giveaway Finalists Announced

No, it wasn't a mirage. We swear. But it did take a "Titanium Blue" PS3 included in an upcoming Japanese Gran Turismo 5 bundle to kick us in the butt as a reminder.

So yeah, we're gonna give that bad boy away. Bear in mind that although you see a picture of an old "fatty" PlayStation 3 model, the one the winner will receive will be a current 120GB PS3 Slim with one controller; exactly what you would get if you bought it from a store. ...well, except it'll be a gorgeous Metallic Blue color. The 20 finalists have been selected; check the updated giveaway page to see if your e-mail is there. If it is, you should already have received an e-mail from us, informing you of your finalist status. Please respond to that e-mail with the requisite information, and you will be entered into the final drawing along with the other 19 lucky gamers. If for whatever reason you don't see that e-mail and your address is listed on that page, contact me at bdutka[at]psxextreme.com.

Just remember, you must be at least 18 years of age and a US resident. Also, if you are a finalist, we must have your information before August 31 to be entered for the final drawing. By the way, if you win, you'll have the option of a free game, too. To get that free game with your snazzy blue PS3, all you have to do is send us a picture of you with your prize. If you don't feel like doing this, that's cool...just no free game. ;) Good luck!

20 Finalists Are Here

Congratulations guys! I hope that a similar competition would be open to us international folks one day. A pipe dream perhaps, but it never hurts to dream. LOL

Haha, looks like everyone finally got to ya. Well, unfortunately the greatest poster of all time (yours truly) is not on that list. However, I wish good luck to the finalists as I add PSXE to my list of "Who's not honoring me now." At least my DS3 is blue :)

Good luck kiddies.

Don't worry World, if you're right about TGS you'll have a mint condition heavily used 60g PS3. Just remember if you're wrong I get another Katana to add to my collection.

Well, you're finally getting around to giving it away are you? Good luck to everyone named, and I must ask... What are you guys going to be giving away next? A super limited-edition Twisted Metal PS3. No, that would be almost too cool to exist. At least the picture in my mind dictates it that way.
Peace.

So either you qualified this time or Ben/Arnold just made a mistake and will have to unfinalize some of those finalists. ;)

I nearly **** a brick when I saw this, thought it was 'fate' to some degree, seeing as how I just hit with the dreaded YLOD. I got reeeeeally excited for a second, sadly not a finalist, guess it will be quite some time before I get to pick up a PS3 controller :(

Cos if so it was so long ago i cant even rememer my email that i used at the time so im guessing most or all of the finalists have forgotten about this and could be using a different email... im just sayin... :)

How many of those addresses are no longer in use? I mean, The earliest mention of this giveaway is February 2008, back when we found out the finalists for the Red PS3. I know I've changed my primary email address since then.

Look, I even found the article: http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/2665.html
