Mod of the Year 2008 kicks off tomorrow

Before you head off for Christmas, we've got an absolutely stonking competition for you that runs right through the festive period.

Before you head off for Christmas, we've got an absolutely stonking competition for you that runs right through the festive period.

Yes, that's right – it's time for Mod of the Year again and in the season of giving, it's time for us to give something back to you, our awesome readers!

There have been some truly stunning cases which have graced the pages of bit-tech this year and we were determined to make this year even bigger than last year.

We believe we have achieved that, as we've teamed up with many of the industry's leading manufacturers to put together prize packs for the top three mods of the year, as voted for by the bit-tech readership.

In addition to that, we've got a selection of great prizes for those of you that take part in the voting process as well – we'll be drawing prizes at regular intervals over the festive period, just like last year, so look out for the announcements.

There will also be regular updates to the site over the next couple of weeks, with articles like our inaugural Cheesecake Supertest, the bit-tech Hardware Awards, our write ups on your PC and Console Games of the Year and more! In the meantime, we hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year – we'll be back bigger and better than ever in the New Year!

I honestly don't know who I'm going to vote for. But I have an idea... if the voting will be based on sympathy I can imagine an 'old' man to win. :)

Seriously though: Prizes? I pretty much know I won't win. Though I'm in desperate need for a new graphics card... Damn me and my pessimism.

Everything was mailed to Nick already. Thanks for your cooperation. :D
Unless something else pops up I forgot about, I'm betting this will be a fight between Greensabbath and Boddaker.

I've been looking through the article this evening and I've tried to pick three, but I can't. Seriously, I just can't. So far, the closest I've got is down to six... and I've been pretty damn picky.

Will this vote be tied to a newsletter subscription as well?

Please say no, please say no...

Yes. It's the only way we can regulate one vote per person, plus register actual users and your contact details just in case you win.

Last year we had very, very bad trouble with bots spoiling the result - it literally took days to carefully strip away the bad results from the correct ones.

You can unsubscribe straight away again if you don't want it and it's a very, very small 2 minute stress compared to what you can potentially win. If you already signed up for the Game of the Year - you can use the same login details again.

There are two Cyberlink logos because I quickly copied and pasted from other logos I used in the actual article :o

Cheap - no, they are tick boxes + a submit button :p

Uhm this is probably a stupid question but what's the difference between the blue i7 and the gray i7?
Mr Mario 24th December 2008, 14:44 Quote
Just voted. Is a good thing it lets us choose 3, as picking just one would have been hard.

One is normal i7 and the other is extreme i7. I just picked out "an i7 logo" despite the fact we only have 1 CPU to give away :)
