This past weekend, we told you about a chance to win a free copy of EA's excellent racer, Need for Speed .

It was simple, really: all you had to do was keep an eye on our Twitter page and as soon as I tossed up a Tweet asking you to e-mail me, the contest was on. The first to send me a message with a brief explanation as to why they wanted the game would win. Well, I opened the floodgates late last night and within 10 minutes, 7 people had already e-mailed me…I keep forgetting the power of free stuff, especially when it comes to really cool video games. 😉 But anyway, one message came in exactly one minute before a few others, and it also had the longest "why I want NFS" description. So, the winner is-

Gus S., aka BikerSaint

I'm sure you all know who he is. 😉 Anyway, I'll be sending out his prize on Monday and I'm sure he'll have fun with it. For those of you who haven't yet tried Hot Pursuit , it's definitely worth the cost of admission if you like solid, super-fast arcade-type racers. Also, make sure to check out our Hadouken interview if you missed it; they're one of the bands that contributed music to the white-knuckle experience.

Stay tuned for more fun giveaways in 2011. 🙂

Btw, I may or may not throw up any more updates today. If I see something particularly pressing (or particularly cool), I might…but I'll be pretty busy.

And I won't be updating tomorrow, of course. But it's back on for next week starting with the standard Week in Review. Oh, and a Happy Holidays greeting from PSXE later tonight. 🙂

I just want to yell out "Thanks" as loud as I can type it to Ben, Arnold, Sometimes John, and whom ever else may be lurking throughout any darkened back hallways of PSXExtreme (LOL)!!!!

Plus I also want to give a big shout out to all my peeps here in the comment section too!

I loved the demo & was busy trying to knock my interceptor time down with my Crown Vicky, so I was mighty pissed when the time limit finally locked me out(and I never got to play as a speeder), so this will be one of my most welcome additions to my gaming enjoyment.

Man oh man, I never win anything, so you guys just don't know how determined I was at trying & win this awesome game.

I spent many sleepless hours since Saturday, with these bloodshot eyeballs peeled at my computer screen(with more than a few Visine cocktail chasers to boot) till I started seeing things in triplicate(talk about having some real 3D a-la-natural).

Anyway, you all don't know how close I was to not winning…….my lack of sleep was finally overtaking me after 6 days, and I was about to call it quits & shut my computer down, when the tweet actually popped up…and the rest is history.

And today I get a knock on my door & it's the UPS man with a small package for me. It seems I also won a prize from Gamestop's gigantic C.O.D. Black Ops sweepstakes back in November.
I only won one of the minor prizes they were giving away, a black long sleeve COD OP's T-shirt with a huge emblem with the Black beret'ed grinning skull inside it, pretty cool looking.
Anyway, that makes 2 things I finally won, & all in the same week. Soooo, since things usually happen in 3's for me, I'm off in a bit to play some $168 million lotto tickets!!!
Hey, I can dream can't I???

BTW, as soon as NFS arrives here, I'm putting a sticker on the case stating that it came from PSXEtreme along with the date, so that when I'm finally too old to game, & I'm ready to will my collection to the Smithsonian Museum, the the PSXEteme will forever have a place in gaming history too.

So since I'm known here as a man of little words(LOL), I'll just end my post with these last couple of words….

Merry Christmas(or name your observance here), and Happy Holidays to all,!!!!

(PSSST….."Good Night, Irene")!

Xbox_Killer,
Thanks!

Actually, I hit my "send" button about 10 seconds after the tweet popped up, but my old WindowsXP computer's been acting a little buggy lately & it decided to freeze up right after I hit the button(for what seemed like an eternity to me), before it finally went back to normal & sent my email off.
And because of that, I had told myself that I lost any chance of winning.

So I was really surprised to find out that I had still beat the 2nd place email, who ever that was, by a minute.
