PSXE Blue PS3 Giveaway Complete: Winner Announced

Well, it's all over. And no cracks about how long we ran it for...or we won't do another one. ;)

In August, we selected the 20 finalists for the contest and tonight, by a very scientific process of selection, we've picked the winner. By "scientific," I mean I took all the e-mails of the finalists who responded to our request for address info, put them up on the screen, closed my eyes, and pointed. See? Okay, it's not scientific but at least it was random. The lucky winner of the slick blue PlayStation 3 is-

Kim G. - IL

Kim has already been contacted with the "winner announcement" and we'll be sending along the prize in due time. Bear in mind that despite the picture, it will be a now-standard 120GB PS3 Slim that gets colored; we weren't about to search through eBay for a fatty, you know? Anyway, congratulations to the winner and thanks to all those who entered. All you had to do was sign up for the newsletter to enter and we might do something similar again, so stay tuned for updates to the giveaway page.

But speaking of the newsletter, we usually send one out twice a week and it highlights the top updates on the site, including hot news, editorials, reviews, previews, videos, and screenshots, all in a handy-dandy reference package.  So if you haven't signed up yet...what're you waiting for? ;)

Actually, this is the only type of random giveaway we do.

All the other ones we've done are designed so frequent contributors will win, like the one we gave out for User Reviews, Comments, and and Forum participation. Just ask guys like Underdog and Highlander, and Spartan in the forums. We like those better. :)

Of course, YOU weren't around when we were doing that, so..... ;)

I guess i haven't contributed enough. I think I've only had 3 or 4 Admin replies in almost 2 years so I guess mention in an article is out of the question. But then again most of my contributions are comical. Perhaps it's time to reinvent the main_event???

nah.

p.s. I'm gonna go make my own site, with women and liquor. Matter of fact, forget the site.

Tomba!, what a great choice. That game really came out of no where and I remember reading my gaming magazines and the reviewers being dumbfounded by the game.

I wouldn't sweat the lack of replies from admins, sometimes it's good to be in the background.

Congratulations to Kim.

Sony needs to hook us up with some blue ones here in the US. It can't be that expensive to change color for plastic molds.

things that happened before the blue playstation givaway;
1. Duke Nukem gameplay was released
2. the PS3 had a price drop
3. Gran Turismo 5 got a confirmed release date
4. Gabe Newell is using the PS3 as lead platform and said it would be the superior platform

I'm on to you Ben. You "randomly" picked Kim? Your suuuure this wasn't some ploy to get a picture of a girl holding a PS3 on your site?

Won't YOU be disappointed when a picture of a chines guy holding a blue PS3 arrives in your inbox.

Forget the same old diffrent collored Ps3's. How about we get some like super embosed type or maybe some spraypaint of exclusive type characters like Kratos's face ripping thrue the ps3 with fire and mauntains in the background something like the ps3 street fighter controllers or have an awesome wrap around type of murel covering the Ps3 of uncharted or grand theft auto. That would be awesome not just slap some new color in, and thats that, how boring... am not complaining at least you do giveaawys... I am just saying that would be the Shit.
