If there’s anything we like here at X360A, it’s giveaways. Big ones at that. We’ve given away 35,700 Microsoft Points for a Trials Evolution HD competition, 50,400 for a Dead Space 3 competition, and 65,100 for an Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood competition, but this time, we wanted to go big. So big that it eclipses everything we’ve ever done before on this here site.
“How much bigger than 65,000 can you realistically go?” you ask, “100,000?” We could do, but still we weren’t satisfied. We’ve gone much bigger this time!
To mark the upcoming release of Splinter Cell Blacklist, we’ve teamed up with Ubisoft UK to give away 200,000 Microsoft Points. Well, 201,600 to be precise. That’s 2,100 Microsoft Points a day for 90 days, with the final day’s winner taking home 12,600 points. In case you were wondering, that’s enough Microsoft Points to buy 168 copies of Call of Juarez: Gunslinger!
Starting from the 24th of May, the start of our MCM live show where Splinter Cell Blacklist will be headlining, we’ll be giving away 2,100 Microsoft Points a day until the game’s August 23rd UK release date. Yes, the word you’re looking for is wowzers!
What do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning? Well, it’s fairly simple. You watch a video on this page and answer a question on the entry page during the competition weeks, and then just cross your fingers. What the video will be and what the question will be will differ from one week to the next, so pay attention to this page and to the schedule. Once you’ve entered for that stage, you’ll be in the mix for the duration of that stage so fear not, you can sit back and hope you’re a winner.
So that’s it folks. Put this one in the diaries, you know, for 3 months! Surely the biggest competition we’ve ever done, and most definitely the longest! Good luck!
Note: This is a Europe only competition, due to the region restrictions put on Microsoft Points by Microsoft.
