Now that most of the year’s major game industry events are behind us, the steadily growing bounty of PlayStation t-shirts, hats, pens, notebooks, oh, and belt buckles are reaching critical mass. I kid you not.
This being the situation, folks, we have an idea:
We know a lot of people here have been PlayStation fans for years and for some of you, in fact, all of your lives. So it’s time to put your knowledge to the test. We’ve come up with 10 PlayStation trivia questions. If you think you know the answers, use the ‘contact us’ link on the side of this blog with “I Want Some Schwag!” as the subject line. Of course, include your answers, name and mailing address.
If all 10 of your answers are correct, you’ll be entered into a random drawing where 10 winners will be given a bounty of PlayStation schwag.
Sorry, now for the gratuitous legal disclaimer: To be eligible, you must send in your answers no later then October 31, 2007 11:59 PM (PST). Limit one entry per person and valid e-mail address for the duration of the promotion: Contest is only open to U.S. residents ages 13 or older who answer all 10 questions correctly. Prize fulfillment is at Sponsor’s discretion and based on availability.
