Bit-Gamer Competition #2

Posted on 20th Dec 2010 at 11:31 by Joe Martin with 23 comments

Congratulations to the three winners from last week, who told us their favourite games ever over Twitter. We sent them each a copy of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit on PlayStation 3 as a prize, but here's what the winners chose, in case you were wondering:

@dragronphreak - Pools of Radiance Ultima 7
@xmvx - Diablo 2
@Krisposkitt - BioShock

Now it's time for our second competition to celebrate the launch of Bit-Gamer.net. This time we've got a copy of Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood Codex Edition on Xbox 360 to send out - and, yes, this competition is open worldwide.

Bit-Gamer Competition #2
Want to win? Tell us over Twitter what games you are looking forward to!

To be in for a chance of winning, all you have to do is Follow @bit_gamer on Twitter and send us a tweet telling us which game you're most looking forward to next year.

The deadline for this competition is 5 January 2011.

We've already handed out a few unannounced prizes over Twitter too, and we expect to be giving out a lot more of as we've got a ludicrous amount of prizes to be given away. Congratulations to @darth_careful and @alastor2004, both of whom grabbed themselves copies of Diamond Dan on Steam.

We'll be bringing you a new competition after the New Year. Don't worry if you're not interested in signing up for Twitter either; you'll get a chance to win something soon!

What's wrong with Twitter? Would you prefer it to be somewhere else?

Only the work of a few minutes to sign up :) Can't blame them far wanting some publicity.

What's wrong with a page on bit-tech for the competition? I don't like Twitter. I don't want to give another company my details. I'm a bit-tech customer.

You don't need to give details to Twitter any more than you need to enter the competition. If you don't want to sign up to Twitter then you can easily wait for the future competitions, which, as I mention in the article, will not all involve Twitter.

Twitter is a convenient way for us to launch competitions like this and is a convenient way for those users to respond back to us. Creating a new page or form for simple one week competitions isn't convenient for anyone - especially as we'd then have to validate entries in a different way, probably involving the newsletter.

Again with the consoles :(

Incidentally, if you want our non-twitter, non-console competitions then there are FAR MORE of them...

I like it better now that not so many of the competitions are blatant attempts by the energy companies to bombard you with marketing literature and sales calls... I am not a twitter-user but a competition is privilege I suppose, and lots of people do use Twitter so I can understand the idea behind it.

And the prizes have been consoles so far because the best ones (the PC orientated ones) are being saved til' last, yeah????

:o))

Right.
You'd need something like...a forum for that, and setting up a forum would be over....
...oh, wait :D

Love offers...is so cool it's actually blocked at my work :D
And the Enermax competition wants my home adress, and telephone number
Yeah likely, very likely

I mean, twitter gets attractive compared to that :D

Could be worse, you could be using Facebook

Oh No, your details? Are you one of those that still after 10 years + refuse to buy anything online due to security issues.
Dragonphreak 20th December 2010, 21:24 Quote
Thanks guys! Sent my e-mail in before reading this.


Just to note, I did tweet that Ultima 7 was my favorite game, not sure where you guys got Pools of Radiance. Don't get me wrong, Pools was a good game too, but I spent far too many hours playing U7.

Only just read this. Will correct the article. Sadly, the letter I just sent out with your prize is now going to make very little sense...

Will winners from North America be getting NTSC versions of the game? A few years ago I won an XBOX 360 game on another site and received a PAL version. Unfortunately it was useless to me since I needed an NTSC version.

Also to note, my name in the article is spelled wrong :D

My esteemed fellow, if bit-tech spelt it right then there would be cause to worry.

Oh, you mean the non-Bit-tech competitions where advertisers get to assemble free adress books via 3rd party websites which i don't know or want to know? Thanks!

Competitions aren't any fun because of the prizes or the flashy banners, the fun is in the community factor. And no, Twitter, is NOT community. You have a very own, wonderful forum full of creative people, proven by the massive succes of the Phobya competition. Please please please go back in that direction.

By the way, terms and conditions for those compos that ARE done by Dennis are broken, so i'm not even sure i can enter from abroad.

As much as I can see why twitter is annoying to some it's relatively hassle free I've had virtually no spam from using it for about a year now and its quick and easy. Saying that I would still prefer it uses the forums but then you have to find a way of getting people onto the forums.
