We just got word of something pretty fantastic. Xbox SA has teamed up with BT Games for a pretty incredible competition. You could win a trip to this year’s Gamescom in Cologne, Germany – Europe’s largest video game event – just by pre-ordering Gears of War: Judgment.
All you have to do is pre-order the latest game in the ground-breaking game series from your nearest BT Games (or online!) before 21 March (remember to keep your receipt!) and you’ll be entered in to the draw to win a full expenses paid trip to Cologne – including flights, accommodation and spending money. There, you’ll get to see and play a ton of as-yet-unreleased games – and probably get a peek at the next-gen consoles before their release.
Oh, the prize includes $5000 spending money too. Yes, that’s 5000 US Dollars – so you could be up to your eyeballs in games, sausages and Kolsch; Cologne’s regional beer, which I can tell you from personal experience is sweet, sweet Ambrosia; the nectar of the gods.
If ever there was incentive to pre-order Gears of War: Judgement (beyond, you know, it being a pretty rad game), then this is it.
Here are the boring, but necessary terms and conditions.
