Win a copy of Heavy Rain from PS3Blog.net


Heavy Rain Giveaway

I decided it’s time to give something back to all the loyal members of this site. So I’ll be giving away a free copy of Heavy Rain! To enter this contest you have to a member, and it’s free to register.

This contest will be done a little different. You will be using your points to “buy” a lottery ticket. Each “Lottery Ticket” will cost you 250 Points, you may enter up to 4 times or 1000 points max.* To enter the lottery click on the “Donate Points” link in the side bar. It’s right above the poll once your logged in. Then put in lottery as the username and donate your points.

If you already have 1,000 points, then your set. But who knows when another contest may come up. So it would be wise to stock up on your points. There are a variety of ways to earn points. New members get 100 points just for registering and if you visit the site daily you get another 15 points. You can keep track of the points you’ve earned by clicking the “My Points” link at the bottom of the sidebar.

I’ll be picking a member/lottery ticket at random on Feb. 21st, 2010 at 7 p.m. Mountain Time.

* Anything over 1000 points donated to the lottery during this contest will be ignored, and you would have wasted them as well.

    Darn it. I read the site by RSS, have done for months (Registered 5 months ago, according to wordpress). Been here for longer than that though…

    Great idea!

    This is why people should register, this site has a lot of things in the works. Also be sure to check if you are logged in, nothing worse than finding out you have been contributing and never get the points for it because you were not logged in.

    15 points for daily login, but only 5 for a comment?

    I like the idea of purchasing tickets with points. Great stuff.

  17. #17 by FrenchK on February 3rd, 2010 [ 325 Points ]

    nice idea, i’m like others though, usually follow it via RSS so don’t accumulate points even though i read every article posted. Ah well :)
    this blog isn’t only about accumulating points, love it :)

  29. #29 by EdEN on February 3rd, 2010 [ 142861 Points ]

    Well, look at that. Hopefully I’ll at least make the 250 point mark to have a shot at this. I loved their last game on PS2, so hopefully they’ve refined the experience by now…

    You can still earn points while on a mobile device. But you need to be logged in first. But to donate the actual points, you’ll need to be on a pc.

    Eddie: i’d submit points if it would let me lol….but it won’t.  

    Ya, donating points on the mobile site doesn’t work, sorry.

  36. #36 by Eddie on February 5th, 2010 [ 44542 Points ]

  37. #37 by Tosh on February 5th, 2010 [ 1102 Points ]

    What browser are you using? What does it do after you press donate? Did you click the “Confirm” button?

  38. #38 by Techtistic on February 5th, 2010 [ 135 Points ]

    Ah, the hope of winning something. At the very least you got a new member for your website.

  41. #41 by EdEN on February 9th, 2010 [ 142861 Points ]

    The Demo was great since it helps get an idea of how the game will progress and how the controls perform for most of the time.

  42. #42 by oly1kenobi on February 15th, 2010 [ 132360 Points ]
