I'm sure you all have been wondering what the final prize includes, right?

Well, wait no more:








Some of the highlights -

PhysX shirt
Quake 4 shirt
Tabula Rasa Hoodie
Too Human Shirt
Scion Shirt
2 Magic the Gathering mousepads
1 Computer and Gaming World magazine with Vanguard Beta key
1 Gametap shirt
1 Gamer Graffix shirt
1 Call of Duty 3 hat
Wii lanyard
PS3 lanyard
ATI lanyard
Atlus lanyard
Mad Catz E3 360 Faceplate (ebaying for 70+ bucks a piece)
1 Sony party pass
2 32mb PSP sticks
1 QuakeWars dogtag set / 64mb thumbdrive
2 full copies of America's Army Special Forces
1 PSP Skin

And the winner is....

SAM HELL!!!!!




Contest is Over.  Thank you to everyone who entered.



This is it.

Our most unique contest yet.

One lucky winner of this contest will recieve an authentic E3 Swag Bag, filled with goodies collected by our staff on the showroom floor.

What's in it?  We don't even know yet.  I will say this, it's not just going to be the generic crap like mousepads or pens or the like (though we DO need SOME padding biggrin).  So now you may be asking: "What do I have to do?"

Well, it's time for another scavenger hunt  :twisted:

Each day, I will post the following graphic:



You may recognize it.  It is the avatar of our fearless leader here at Gaming Trend, Knightshade Dragon.

Each day at roughly 6 PM Central time  for the next 4 days I will hide that graphic on a page of E3 content.  It could be a preview, it could be an article, it could even be in a news post.  Your job is to email me at [email protected] with 'E3 Swag Bag' in the subject line, include the link where it appears and your forum name (you must be a forum member to enter this contest) in the body of your email.  You may enter once per day starting today and ending at 6 PM Central on Saturday May 13th.  One random winner will be chosen from all entries and will recieve an honest-to-god E3 swag bag.

Good luck! unibrow

Eh? Day 1? I think I messed up somehow then. When the contest was first posted I coulda sworn I found it on a Microsoft page but on the 2nd page of a 2 page article. Then today I found it on page 3 of a MS article. Did I mess up somehow and just confuse them? If so I musta entered twice cause I thought there was 2 days already. Or was today...Wednesday...the nd day? Ugh now Im really confused.

You guys are going to spasm at what we're finding to put in this swag bag.  Let's just say that a number of companies here at E3 have been -more- than happy to supply us with (in many cases extra) swag for the contest.  


Whoever wins this?  We want pictures of what you get. biggrin

Of course, the contest is now over.

Let me tell you about the final location of the graphic  :twisted:

On our front page, we've had the following skyscraper ad running pitching our E3 coverage:

http://server.gamingtrend.com/phpAdsNew/adimage.php?filename=ae3ad_skyscraper_dragon.jpg&contenttype=jpeg

Notice something interesting near the bottom there?

If you clicked the ad it took you to this page: http://www.gamingtrend.com/Articles/articles.php?artID=155

Which is of course where the final location was.  biggrin


it may be a few days before we announce the winner.  I want to post a few pics of the prize and see all what you're getting first slywink

that was part of the trick...it was a rotating ad banner and not always on the front page.  sometimes it would only show up if you refreshed a time or two.

So what shwag is up for the contest, and who won? as I understand it there's 3 winners, right? And can the winners arrange trades with the other winners before there's the mail-out? (as I would DIE to get the new "Barbie Horse Adventures 2 : Working Anatomy Edition" posters. biggrin )

Looking at E3, there is roughly 300 to 400 dollars worth of stuff there if sold individually.  smile  I think that is a worthwhile contest.
