[UPDATE] GIVEAWAY: Free Game, $50 and $20 PSN Card

Hey Readers,

In case you didn’t notice, there was no giveaway bonus for the month of April. This is because I was pushing money aside in order to throw a much bigger giveaway for the months of April and May combined! The contest will run for today and tomorrow and you will have the opportunity to win a Free Game of Your Choice, a $50 PSN Card or a $20 PSN Card.

Competing in this contest is VERY easy and simple. In fact, not only will it help you kill time at school/work/home to get you through your day, but it’ll also give you the opportunity to have a little “scavenger hunt” to say the least.

Here is what you need to do…Below, I have placed 3 Clues that will indicate a different PlayStation 3 character for each clue from three different EXCLUSIVE titles. Throughout the website in various news articles, I have placed an IMAGE of one of the three characters. In order to enter the contest and have the chance to win one of the three prizes, you must find each character’s image and email the URLs that you found them within to: contest [@] playstationuniversity.com.

Chances are only 3-5 people will be able to find these images, so your odds of winning something great is HIGH.


1. Don’t kill the messenger.

2. Dot…Dot…Dot.

3. Arrows have never been this fun.

Those are the three character clues you’re looking for. The images are substantially big (roughly 500×300). So, it will be easy to spot them! Once again — you have today and tomorrow to find these…If there hasn’t been at least three people to have found all three images by tonight at midnight…I will give you guys a clue as to what article you can find one of the images in.

Good luck!


Alright guys, here are three new clues that are article related to what articles you should be looking towards.

1. Sometimes you need to just check uncharted territory.

2. Give us a release date already!

3. Plastic peripherals have never been this fun.


I’ve included the stated email name below. I’ll be contacting you guys ASAP to get your mailing addresses.

1. Game (Choice) = Dfense

2. PSN Card ($50) = Benevolent_Ascent

3. PSN Card ($20) = Fatality_94

If this is you, you can obviously email me with your mailing address at the same email you sent in your entry to. If not, I’ll be emailing you over the course of the next couple of days.

    Nice giveaway πŸ™‚ Just checking out the clues, I have absolutely no idea what they’re referring to haha.

  4. i have some idea on two of them but the “dont kill the messenger” one is hard lol

  5. Just think, if only ONE person can find them all…they’ll automatically earn the free game, and $70 worth of PSN credit, lol.

  6. theres only one thing i can think of for the “dont kill the messenger” one but i dont think im right lol there seems to be no images of it so im probly wrong XD

  7. I’m afraid the first one could be referring to a game that i haven’t played yet, so I don’t really want to look to make sure, I hate spoilers :/ I think I know number 3 though.

  8. Hero, you shouldn’t get any spoilers. They’re just images from the game itself…I pulled them from our screenshot gallery and google images.

    So none of it will be anything you haven’t seen.

  9. this is crap i havent found any images bigger than 200×200.

  10. OMFG I think I know the first one. Now I have to find the damn picture…

  11. Dreamer_Lion May 28, 2010 @ 12:15

    Is it 3 characters (1 per clue) or just 1 character from one exclusive title (that accounts for all 3 clues)?.

  12. As the text states…it’s three characters, lol

  13. Gotta look hard. I’d love a free game!

  14. @JimmyX

    You have to look inside the articles to find them man.

  15. sry but the images are in any article??

    imma look so hard…

  16. Yes Alex.

    Tonight — I’ll give 3 more clues for EACH character to make it easier for you guys and 1 clue as to what the article is about where you can find the image.

  17. It’ll need to be a good clue – I’m completely lost πŸ˜›

  18. Patrick Steen May 28, 2010 @ 14:01

    Oooh, this one is a head scratcher πŸ˜‰

  19. Dreamer_Lion May 28, 2010 @ 14:01


    The article is a little confusing =P (At least for me it was). I thought that it was either one character from one game that’s doing 3 different things OR that it could be 3 different characters from 3 different games. I guess it depends on how you read it xD

    Now, let the hunt begin. . . . lol.

  20. I appreciate that you’re doing another contest, and I think the idea is great, but the instructions need a lot more detail or at least a word revision so that there’s no confusion as to what we’re looking for.

  21. Is there a date from when the articles in question start? Just April?

  22. I can confirm that ONE person has found ALL THREE images…. I will revise the details a bit here in a second.

  23. I fixed up that paragraph guys, sorry about the confusion.

    As stated, one person has completed this already, lol.

  24. these are all new images, correct?

  25. When you see them, you’ll know they are for the contest because they’re in completely irrelevant articles that have nothing to do with them.

  26. I’m obviously not entering, but I have no idea. I can’t wait to see who figured this out, cuz this s a toughy.

  27. Moocows111111 May 28, 2010 @ 16:15

    Oh cool, Ima probably drop out of this one, someone else can win the free games XD I found 2 of them, just to waste time.

  28. So, is it all of the articles on the site, or just since April?

  29. moocows can u tell me please????? i have gone through the first 8 pages of articles and found nothing

  30. Nixemus… All articles.

  31. This is tough. I think I got a clue on the first one, but I’m completely lost on the other two…

  32. But… there are 73 pages of news! This is obscene! *Head explodes*

  33. What’s funny is that you guys haven’t realized the clues don’t matter yet πŸ˜‰ Lol. Just look for out of place images within articles and that’ll solve the clues for you πŸ˜‰

  34. But still, thats 12 articles each on 73 pages. Thats 876 articles.

  35. The math is strong in you πŸ˜‰

  36. Eesh, its gonna be a loong night…

  37. lol great way to get some hits on tons of articals. ; )

  38. Well, 2/3 clues aren’t that hard. Good luck with that third one, because I have no idea, lol. Well deserved win for whoever gets this.

  39. VofEscaflowne May 28, 2010 @ 17:01

    “Just look for out of place images within articles and that’ll solve the clues for you”

    So the clues only make sense once we’ve figured out where the picture is… uh, why are they clues then? :p

  40. are the cluses for the article it is in or what the picture looks like?

  41. Sent message.hopefully didn’t have to say which pic goes to which clue.

  42. THREE people have successfully completed this challenge guys… Keep it coming, odds are still high.

  43. so what happens if more than three people win?

  44. If three people have successfully completed this challenge, doesn’t that mean its over?

  45. I am assuming he will randomly pick three people who got the links.

  46. Yeah guys…your odds of winning are determined by how many people enter… If only 4 people enter, you’ll have a 75% chance of winning… get it?

  47. Thats it. I got to page 15 on my 56kbps connection. Took me 3 hours. I bloody hope the pictures, clues and articles will be outlined with the utmost detail when the winners are revealed! >.<

  48. I’ll have article-related clues going out at midnight πŸ˜‰ so it’ll be easier to figure out the specific articles as well.

  49. Moocows111111 May 28, 2010 @ 17:41

    I would, but it makes it too easy XD I used deduction to find all of the pictures now. I didn’t send in an email yet because I’m not going to participate, give you 3 guys a higher chance XD

  50. Moocows111111 May 28, 2010 @ 17:43

    Oopps I was responding to coolsalajr. Also it’ll take you awhile, the clues don’t really help as much as I would’ve thought. Keep searching, it shouldn’t take you more then an hour if you middle click all of the links. (Only if you have “Tabs” enabled.)
