Okay, so the time has come.
For the past five weeks, we have been running our grand giveaway, which consists of a snazzy Fast & Furious PlayStation 3 Prize Pack . All you had to do to enter was sign up to follow PSX Extreme on Twitter, and then we'd choose the winner at random. Well, we've done just that, and the name that popped up magically before our eyes was-
Swavey83 – Craig
Now, whoever this is, he needs to e-mail me at my e-mail address (found in the About Us section) with his acceptance of the prize and his address information. If for whatever reason I never get an e-mail or the prize is refused – I think a lot of people who signed up already have a PS3, but probably wouldn't mind having this package – we'll select another name. We'll also have to if Swavey83 here didn't follow the rules (like, you have to reside within the U.S.), specifically outlined in the original story. For now, this is the winner and we extend a heartfelt congratulations. We'll update this story with new details soon; just stay tuned.
The promotion was a great success. Over 1,000 people signed up to follow us at Twitter, and we promise to keep posting mini-updates as time goes on. We love to tease stuff over there, so if we've got a big hands-on coming, or we're already playing the review copy of a game that has yet to see release, we'll tell ya about it. Just hit the little Twitter icon at the top of the PSXE main page, if you don't know already. Thanks to all!
Awesome! Congrats Craig!
well done bro,
now I just hope that you followed the terms and conditions and live in the US!
(if I wasn't living in the UK I'd be hoping differently, I wouldn't mind another PS3 for use in another room- saves transporting time :p)
I just got a little excited for a second because my name is Craig but then I realized it wasn't my user name 🙁 But congrats other Craig. If for some reason he decides not to claim his prize, you can just give it to me since we have the same name 🙂
Craig is probably going to put it on his list. j/k ([:>) Congrats Craig.

you mean ebay
Think he ment Craig's list..
I'll be honest here, if I won, I was going to sell this and put the money towards a youth travel trip to Vietnam.
I felt guilty, but I joined in anyway. ; D
Congratulations, now sell the Blu-ray films on ebay.
I feel like this from time to time.
Who AM I…
Congrats man! Great package to have!
Good Job Craig, better snap it up quick!

And I'm going to see the (new) Fast and Furious today.. if that at all relates to this lol. =)
LOL. Why would anyone give you two thumbs down for this comment?
has anyone ever won that blue ps3 giveaway? my guess no and that's been there for years
I wondered about that very same thing!
I have no idea. It's always there… I wonder if such a thing even exists? It's kind of amusing.
Way to go, person! A free Ps3! And F&F is the worst series ever! I suppose and crap would look amazing with bluray.
HOLY SHIT I WON!!! THIS IS SWEET! oh and sorry to the other Craig, i can only imagine the quick high and then the quick low. Thank you PSXEXTREME!
Cherish it, ya gotta cherish it man!
Ahaha, who gave him a down? Poor Craig, poor, poor Craig.
I hate you
Yes, it was a quick high and a not so great low but it's okay cause I've had a PS3 since launch and it's been worth all $600 🙂 I was probably just gonna give it to my brother or a friend. And plus, I hate Fast and the Furious. If I'm gonna watch a movie about cars, especially on blu-ray, to listen to the sweet sounds, I would much prefer Gone in 60 Seconds 🙂
gratz man thats some good stuff.
Congrats Craig! Enjoy.
Are you planning to do more of these giveaways Ben? I'm sure you guys can only afford so much, but it's fun little addition to the site.
Depends on the offers that come our way. 🙂
I helped Craig. I sneezed on him and gave him some of my good luck. Your welcome Craig. :P, Gratz
Congrats man 🙂
Wish I had more luck at the horse racing yesterday didnt win a thing first time in 8 years ive not won nothing oh well always next year 🙂
thanks everyone. except for that guy who hates me 😉 yeah i already own a ps3 but it pooped out on me once in warrenty and is starting to act up again so this couldn't have happened at a better time.
Congrats Craig, enjoy your prize!

That guys hates everyone, even himself.
Hey congats man, I was hoping to get it, but hey thems the breaks, lol.
Congrats man!(I'm just a tad bit jealous)but its cool.
I was hoping I'd win, but I already have a PS3 and it's working fine, so yeah.
Swavey swoops in for the win! Nice. For all you weirdos complaining about the F&F movie, I wouldn't say that's the big prize here … I'm just saying.
man lucky guy congratz. another year without a ps3 for me 🙁
I hear the new fast & the furious movie is good no rice in it, all clean cars. Most likely going to see it tonight.
It's like the old saying goes;
Where once there was a PS3, there now are two. Kewlll
Oh well, another contest I've never won. Guess I've gotta go put another "L" on the ole noggin.
Anyways,enjoy your new gift,
and congrats to ya Craig
