No, it wasn't a mirage. We swear. But it did take a "Titanium Blue" PS3 included in an upcoming Japanese Gran Turismo 5 bundle to kick us in the butt as a reminder.
So yeah, we're gonna give that bad boy away. Bear in mind that although you see a picture of an old "fatty" PlayStation 3 model, the one the winner will receive will be a current 120GB PS3 Slim with one controller; exactly what you would get if you bought it from a store. …well, except it'll be a gorgeous Metallic Blue color. The 20 finalists have been selected; check the updated giveaway page to see if your e-mail is there. If it is, you should already have received an e-mail from us, informing you of your finalist status. Please respond to that e-mail with the requisite information, and you will be entered into the final drawing along with the other 19 lucky gamers. If for whatever reason you don't see that e-mail and your address is listed on that page, contact me at bdutka[at]psxextreme.com.
Just remember, you must be at least 18 years of age and a US resident. Also, if you are a finalist, we must have your information before August 31 to be entered for the final drawing. By the way, if you win, you'll have the option of a free game, too. To get that free game with your snazzy blue PS3, all you have to do is send us a picture of you with your prize. If you don't feel like doing this, that's cool…just no free game. 😉 Good luck!
Congratulations guys! I hope that a similar competition would be open to us international folks one day. A pipe dream perhaps, but it never hurts to dream. LOL
Haha, looks like everyone finally got to ya. Well, unfortunately the greatest poster of all time (yours truly) is not on that list. However, I wish good luck to the finalists as I add PSXE to my list of "Who's not honoring me now." At least my DS3 is blue 🙂
Good luck kiddies.
Don't worry World, if you're right about TGS you'll have a mint condition heavily used 60g PS3. Just remember if you're wrong I get another Katana to add to my collection.
LOL at mint condition heavily used. What a contradiction. By the way, if you're wrong, don't forget you also owe us all jelly beans.
It can be used a lot and in mint condition. And yea, id the unthinkable happens i'll pass out the JBs but only to those who ask.
lol, oh noez, I want my beans!
For US resident's only? It looks like 2 of those 20 emails listed have a UK address at the end of them.
Oh well, congrats to whoever wins it anyway.
I think one of them has an Italian domain too.
…and the rest of them are either in jail or dead! This thing is rigged, I say!
Good luck to all in the final draw.
oh well, i'm happy with my new 120GB slim 🙂
Aww well, was a long shot, but congratulations to everyone who got in!!! Enjoy you lucky people you =)
Well, you're finally getting around to giving it away are you? Good luck to everyone named, and I must ask… What are you guys going to be giving away next? A super limited-edition Twisted Metal PS3. No, that would be almost too cool to exist. At least the picture in my mind dictates it that way.
Goodluck to the finalists
Hope for future contests it can be like PSN load up for grabs so that anyone from anywhere can join in.
And so ends an era.
But what will the next age bring?
A Crimson PSP!!
The next prize will be a 3D HDTV.
Grats to the lucky 20.
And even bigger uber grats to whoever ins up being the big winner.
Enjoy that blue ps3 for me please.
got excited that it was a blue slim, looked for my name then realised i didn't enter cus im in the UK
Wait thats actually a competition o.0 it's been there for at least 2 years! I thought it was a dodgy add lol.
That is great news Ben… the blue baby finally ships out… what is next on the give away list…
Congrats to all of you!
Boo-urns! No me on that list. Oh, well. Good luck to the finalists!!! 🙂
Non of us regulars got on the list?
it's probably random.
Wow, so this makes PS3 no: 5. No other site I know ever does this kind of thing, but hey, none of them are as awesome as PSXE. Congrats to the finalists! I wonder if they're people we know here.
I was wondering that too…
I was only joking in the GT5 thread, this is funny!
Congratulations to all finalists! Best of look guys/gals!
So am I the first to start thinking this is all one big Jokes on us? Good one Ben! I told you he was crafty. It only took me 23 comments to get it… T_T
Obviously, I'm a non-finalist, what with being outside the US and all, but congrats to everyone on that list! I hope some regulars got on that list! Good luck to everyone!
Ah, but as pointed out above, some of those e-mail domains are outside the U.S.
So either you qualified this time or Ben/Arnold just made a mistake and will have to unfinalize some of those finalists. 😉
Good luck y'all.
So thrilled PS3 playing commence monday after 1 whole year 🙂
starting with U2, FFxiii and assassins creed 2 then GOW2 and dante's inferno . I bet all of u are jealous right now 🙂
When you gonna lavish gifts on us Brits? …I'd like a blue raincoat.
Yo! missed my psxe fam, highlander,alienange,worldends,ultimadream,wolfcrimson,bigrailer,qubex,orvisman,vertigo, among a whole lot and of course Ben, Arnold and Shadow the creep lol. I've been quite busy.
On topic: I'm not eligible to claim this prize so I can't bother to comment, just had to give shout outs to my people i've dearly missed, no homo lol.

Welcome back >:)
Aye me to as i'm from England, but i'm still bewildered that this competition is genuine.
You gotta make time for this site www, it's the best there is.
Oh, and LV was killed by WorldEnds.
It's true, I buried him in my back yard. Welcome back dude, where ya been?
Welcome back, dude!
I know….my friends, I feel so bad
*rises slowing from chair*
Nooo! Didn't get in the top 20
Oh well, the one who gets it better enjoy this thing!
good luck muchachos.
in ur next competition, u should include the new 320gb with move
I nearly **** a brick when I saw this, thought it was 'fate' to some degree, seeing as how I just hit with the dreaded YLOD. I got reeeeeally excited for a second, sadly not a finalist, guess it will be quite some time before I get to pick up a PS3 controller 🙁
LOL, I didnt believe it when i seen it.. but wow! I entered for this years ago, way back.. but i gotta ask, are all emails ever sent in considered? Cos if so it was so long ago i cant even rememer my email that i used at the time so im guessing most or all of the finalists have forgotten about this and could be using a different email… im just sayin… 🙂
Yeah, probably almost the whole list wont even know they're in this anymore. This should be redone and recounted for!!!
Thats exactly what I was thinkin. I have email addresses that I made and then changed after a couple weeks because they sounded stupid. I know the email address I use to sign in here I never use anymore, lol.
I've entered sparingly for the past two years, sucks I'm not one of them…
Although I just joined, I want to give my congrats to the finalist.
I was unfortunately unable to win this even if my name was drawn :'( unfair
