Somewhere out there, there's a person who won a car for pre-ordering Final Fantasy 8. Did the winner ever actually get the car? Is there any way to find out who it was?

This kind of shit should be tracked somehow. It's pretty easy for a company to offer a Lamborghini and then never deliver, and it doesn't seem like anyone follows up on it.

That being said, I won a Vita from a Taco Bell sweepstakes and my brother won a PS4 from another Taco Bell sweepstakes the year after, so I'm confident that Taco Bell is legit with their giveaways.

Yeah, I'm sure the son of the executive working for EB enjoyed his car.

Canada got all the same gaming magazines as the US, and it was always so annoying to see a full page ad for a cool contest or promotion just to see "ONLY AVAILABLE TO RESIDENTS OF US" at the bottom of the page. Shit sucked.

Lucas Hall
Lucas Hall

Pocket change to the firm as a whole but not to individuals or a small group of people. I, myself, would be pretty satisfied with sharing $200,000 between a few executives and forgetting about the sweepstakes. As long as there's no follow up or confirmation, it's really easy for companies to get away with shit like this.

That being said, I do agree that it's far more likely that people just don't care and, I'm sure, everyone is appropriately awarded more often than not. Still, I don't like that that kind of shit isn't kept on top of.

Evan James

I know how you feel. I ate about $70 worth of Taco Bell to win my Vita. I ate about $40 worth for the next two sweepstakes (black PS4 and gold PS4) but didn't win. Of course it's random but it sucks to eat shit for such a long time for nothing.

There was a pretty good letter about this in an issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly back in the day. The guy won their "letter of the month" which entitled him the game of the month, which was ok because it was considered a contest and not a sweepstakes. Hopefully, the game wasn't region locked.

Isn't doing a sweepstakes a tax writeoff anyway? You have to give it to someone.

Jaxson Young

Not if nobody follows up on it, you don't. So you get to keep the money and/or prize, along with the tax write off. On the other hand, the company is getting in huge fucking trouble if they get caught but, again, if no one bothers to follow up with this shit then it's easy to get away with.

I was ten years old and won "dinner with Lara croft" it was around the time tomb raider 2 came out. My parents helped fill out the entry forum and sent it in. lol and behold I won. I got the letter back in the mail with the time and place "it was at a nearby Pizza Hut" and my mom brought me there. There was a limousine the showed up and Lara got out. She was pretty tall 5'9 and looked true to form. She was even British. I ordered a slice and she just ordered something to drink. The employees were not told of what was going on and they just kept staring over at us. I'm sure it was a pretty strange sight. Anyways. Lara just asked how school was going, what I liked to to do etc. it was probably a half hour, thing. I then got a pic with her and she gave me a signed t shirt.

Jayden Campbell
Jayden Campbell

The amount they'll make from people trying to win a sweepstakes is considerably more than the cost of the car itself, since you have many many people buying many more of a product to try to get one thing. With a video game not the same but it boosts sales, with food it's much better since people will continously buy $5+ meals to get a prize and most will never win. Pretty fucking genius actually.

Well, not in my case. The Vita launched for about $250 to $300, right? I spent $70 on lunch for a few months and I got a Vita out of it too. Maybe it wasn't the best food but it was still food and it's priced very cheaply (two tacos, a burrito, and a drink for $5) so it's not that big of a loss.

Now, if you're spending hundreds of dollars in order to win the sweepstakes then that's a different story. Even then though, you're still paying for lunch anyway.

Not too long ago, pretty recently even I won a Pokemon competition which included a package with a New 3DS XL, Pokemon Sun, a strategy guide and a Pikachu plush. I already had a New 3DS small, so I put the XL up on eBay and will use the money towards the Switch.

Yeah, anything turn based is fine. If it has buttons on the back (like N64's Z-button) then simple platformers might be ok too. That's pretty much it though.

Thankfully, PS1 had quite a few good turn based RPGs. Still, doing combos in Legend of Dragoon or some of the minigames in Final Fantasy 9 must be torture.

itt anons won consoles, games and dates with Lara Croft while only vidya-related thing I ever won was AC Syndicate checkers that I didn't even want

I mean it was nice, with leather board and shit and most importantly without huge ASSASSINS CREED TM SYNDICATE (R) logo, so it doesn't look like cheap advertisment but I don't play checkers

chess you can at least give to someone as a nice gift, but who the fuck play checkers

If I'm not mistaken, EB Games and Gamestop merged and changed their store names depending on the region. In the US, it's all Gamestop but elsewhere it's all EB Games. If I'm not mistaken, GAME is a separate company that's a major seller in United Kingdom and other European countries so I'm not sure if there are any EB Games or Gamestops there.

In 2003 or 2004, sometime around then McDonalds had Sonic LCD games in Happy Meals. If you found a special shiny version of I think either Sonic or Shadow's game, you would win £2,500 plus a copy of Sonic Heroes and Sonic Mega Collection.

My uncle took me to McDonalds with my little cousin who was 2, and they managed to win somehow. My uncle needed the money because he was poor, but he let me have the games.

It's the Original Titan from 2013. There are far more powerful cards available now, but it still does an amazing job in 1080p in cutting edge titles. I usually just have to drop some of the more demanding settings, but games still look and play amazingly on the card. Since then there have been
GTX Titan Z
GTX Titan X
GTX 980
GTX 1070
GTX 1080
GTX 1080 ti
GTX Titan Z (Same name as the older one, but much more powerful)

And probably a bunch of other cards I've probably forgotten that are more powerful than it. I'm not complaining, and I'm not going to upgrade to something better until 4k is pretty much a standard that can be reached with low end hardware. So probably another 2-3 years.

The fine print said thathat island was worth "up to" 50k. Meaning it wasn't, and they said the island may or may not be inhabitantable. Also you were to be responsible for paying any taxes on it.

I wonder every time I pass by it. It's like stepping back into the 90s when media stores were still a thing. I always go into it and just look around, but usually don't buy anything. They have a decent anime selection, but the prices just aren't good, even the budget label they have.

Acclaim are set to start their marketing campaign for Shadowman 2 next week in the U.K, and it's going to be one with a difference, and one more than likely to cause a stir.

They are going to be doing a "Tombstone" advertising campaign, where they are inviting relatives of the recently deceased to contact them if they are interested in subsidising the costs associated with death, in return for a small advertisement promoting the cult ShadowMan game. The video games company then plans to erect small billboards and sponsor the headstones of the subsidised dead as a permanent advertisement. The imagery on the tombstone ads will feature Le Roi - the games character, and the game's logo.

Shaun White, Communications Manager at Acclaim, said: "The concept of what we're calling 'Deadvertising' is entirely consistent with the theme of the ShadowMan 2econd Coming game and provides us with a permanent presence for our advertising. Content and context are two important principles of marketing ShadowMan."

The company is expecting a rush of enquiries for ShadowMan "deadverts" on gravestones. The company anticipates that it will prove popular with families who could not have otherwise afforded a fitting send off for loved ones.

He was really aggressively asking for the time and then he told me to get out my phone, so I told him I didn't have a phone and he walked off. I'm only mentioning this whole story because when this happened I was actually walking home with a rustler for my lunch, and I live in London.

Before Nintendo world, it was a full fledged Pokemon center like the ones in Japan back in the 90s. But considering you're an underageb& (or newfag, can't tell), I can see why you say this now.

The first floor was nothing compared to what it used to be. The top floor was a better tribute to Nintendo than it is now.

Would just stand and play for hours, sometimes I would get to buy the game

In hindsight I have no clue how my parents had the patience for that

I wish Sup Forums was more like reddit so we wouldn't lose interesting little stories like these forever.

PS1 has the advantage of running at a native 240p which hides how ugly some of the shit is, PC can run the models at a higher resolution but the backgrounds will forever be at an SD resolution. Pick your poison

if anyone bought that they deserve not having a million dollars. The only two things on that list of prizes that are really expensive are the car and the space flight, which sure having a nice car is great but if you have a million dollars you'd buy it without this retarded package.

also the "dubstep" gun is only worth $450.00

I remember that Sonic game, when I was little once a McDonalds I went to ran out of boy toys so when my parents went to exchange it the manager came out and handed me it telling me it wasn't supposed to come out until next month.

Pretty sure I saw that guitar on craigslist years ago for $6k. Could have been a scam, but hey someone surely won it right? Nintendo Power wouldn't do us like that.

Shit, I wish I saw it again. If it wasn't a fucking Jackson I'd think about dropping 6 large on it.

I bet it's that guy who posted the Selphie/Balamb dream thread that won it.

I have conflicting opinions about this car.
On one hand, it's rather bland looking, but who wouldn't want a free car?

On the other hand, it'd be cool if it were decked out in a Final Fantasy theme, but then it'd be an embarrassing virginmobile that I'd never want to drive in public.

which game was it that offered something ludicrous like a $500k crown jewel if you completed all of the games, only for the last game to never come out

it had themes, think AVGN did a video on it.
