To kick off our relaunch I have a little giveaway action for you!

First the rules:
- Only one win per person
- Entering more than once per day doesn't increase your chances
- You MUST be a registered forum member to win
- If you are under the age of 18, you must have parental permission to accept a prize (some are rated M)
- We are not responsible for lost mail, taxes, tarrifs, or fees. (I'll provide the shipping)
- Your entry expires as soon as a winner is named.  You may enter again for the next contest unless you have previously won
- Console Gold employees and family members are not eligble
- Rules are subject to change without notice

OK, the legal crap out of the way...we have copies of Hitman: Contracts for Xbox, PS2, and PC as well as Hitman: Contracts calendars, copies of Ninja Gaiden, and the very cool book Blue Wizard is About to Die from Seth Flynn Barkan.

How do I enter?
Watch this space for a new question and then write our contest email address with the following (revealed later):
a.) Your answer
b.) Your forum name
The questions will be easy to answer if you make use of the search function on Console Gold's front page.

A special thanks to Tecmo and Eidos for their support on our launch.  We appreciate you, and we are glad you appreciate us.

Bingo!  That is exactly what I'm doing.  

I figure I should mention that the only real personal information you are giving me is your zip (so I can see where my readers are) and your email address if you want to try your hand at winning a prize.  Your personal information will not be given out or sold in any way - this is just for us to improve what we do and understand your needs and habits a bit better.  Cool?
