Well, it's that time of year, when it's always better to give than to receive.

Some of you will remember the Hadouken interview we conducted back in October, when we said we'd be giving away a free copy of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit at some point. Well, that free copy has been sitting here for a while; just haven't had the chance to get to it. Sorry 'bout that.

So anyway, for the last week before Christmas, here's what we're going to do- at some point this week, I'm going to post up a Tweet, telling you to e-mail me with a request for the game, and why you want it . It doesn't have to be a novel, but typing "I just want it 'cuz I love racing games!" doesn't quite cut it. The first message in my inbox that fits this simple requirement will be deemed the winning e-mail, and I'll just send you the game. It's new and sealed, by the way. Also, it would probably help if you have signed up to follow us on Twitter, and if you've signed up to receive the newsletter… Okay, those aren't necessary for the contest but they're still good ideas. 😉

So anyway, make sure to keep checking our Twitter page for the green light. Could be Monday…could be Friday…or somewhere in between…who knows?  By the way, you do have to be in the US.  Just far too much of a pain to ship outside the country.

I wonder if you even read the article…I had the same question when I read the title and I imagined asking that question in the comments section. Before doing that I finished reading the article and in the third paragraph I read, "By the way, you do have to be in the US.". **SIGH** I would have had a short and sweet reason for why I wanted the game that I was sure would convince Ben.

I just bought a brand new HD TV for myself and have blown all my money on presents for mine and my girlfriends family, and having the new NFS would make my holiday. NFS is my favorite racer because even though it is an arcade racer I still feel like it is real. This is as compared to a burnout game where you know what your doing is just make believe.

EDIT: Just read Bens comment,"Updated the article; you do have to be in the US."…Sorry for being a douche bag. Didn't know he didn't originally include the US only sentence.

Good luck PSXE members.

I would love a free game but I think I'll pass, I'm not much of a writer and plus racers aren't my type of games.

Pass. This game looked pretty cool, until the demo and game was released. I'm really wanting a street racer from NFS, like Underground.
Good luck everyone.

Meh, twitter isn't for me. When they make something more masculine sounding maybe. For now I'll stick to Facebook.

Good luck american PSXers…You won't be competing against me on this one.

1: I already own it, it's fun I recommend it for an arcade racer to anyone.
2: I'm Canadian (Foiled again..)
3: I don't Twitter…and don't intend to start….

Good guys those who enter, over the pond in the UK so can't enter but wish you all the best of luck those that do enter. I have this game as well and trust me it's fun to play when you want to get away from the seriousness of GT5 which is a good game for different reasons. 🙂

I do hate it when geography comes between a gamer and a free copy of a good game! 😉

Hey Ben, for the future, do you think you can offer digital download games or PSN redeemable codes as prizes so that we can all participate?

Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit is one of the games I wanted and missed out on in 2010. I hope Ben Claus will help me out.

That's actually pretty thoughtful, if you ask me! I hate it when someone wins something I really want, and they're like, "I'll just give it to such and such. I don't really want it. But thanks!" It's even worse when they turn around and sell it!

You know, you don't have to "use" Twitter. All you have to do is click the Twitter link at the top of this page and read the message.
