So let's do something fun. The last time we did this, we got hundreds of new wallpapers and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Everyone has one week – starting now – to upload their favorite PS3 and PSP wallpapers. All you have to do is enter your User CP, select "Upload Themes & Wallpapers" and follow the very simple instructions; make sure to follow the restrictions before submitting. I would also ask that you check to make sure we don't already have the wallpaper before uploading. For the record, Babes and Sports seem to be worldwide preferences, so focusing on those categories might give you a better chance of winning… I will select the winner at random but I can pretty much guarantee that the more wallpapers you upload, the better chance you'll have. But uploading 25 crappy wallpapers won't get you very far, so fair warning. 😉

Just a few simple rules-

1. You must be 18 years of age or older and live in the U.S.

2. Wallpapers cannot be branded unless you have permission.

3. No explicit material.

4. All wallpapers must be clear. Poor pictures will be discarded.

The winner will receive Dissidia 012: Duodecim Final Fantasy and 2 mystery games . I won't say what they are, but I can guarantee they're for all the JRPG lovers out there. Also, this is something I may do more of in the future, depending on reader response.

Are the walls just going to be uploads of other people's work or are they supposed to be our own creations?

That's cool Ben. Don't be bothered about the USA only stuff. Even when a contest includes Canada it doesn't include Quebec. Our French Nazi provincial government won't allow any such "winnings" into the province.

It's a lose-lose situation here and that's how they like it… apparently.

It's that lose-lose mentality that encouraged tonnes of big businesses to take their money and jobs out of the province back in the mid-90's. I think we all know what their fear was.

If you want to win the wallpaper contest, just submit a wallpaper of Chloe driving a Infiniti M35. I can't enter because I will be breaking the #5 rule which is I am an employee of Sony.

Eh, I'd like FF: Duodecimal system but I know I wouldn't win and I already have Hyperdimension and Ar Tonelico on the way in the mail.

Uh rule 2 I don't get. I can't use like a Cleveland Indians logo, or a Killzone logo without permission? Am I supposevto just make a wallpaper with a babseball and a bat (without a Louisville slugger logo)

That's if I'm going to making wallpapers, im too lazy. I love JRPGs though.

No, branded means a label that says it's the property of a certain site or source.

I might submit a few. Canadians should get into this contest with wicked wallpapers to give Ben something to think about!

He bent the rules once, why not again?

Why, because of the "climate" still?

Also, Ben did make an exception for a Canadian once.

I don't have the mentioned game and I love JRPG's, so I'm going to go all out. I win less often than I mutate into an alien cockroach, but I guess it never hurts to try.

I'm checking everything, but if I miss a brand you're not going to disqualify us or anything will you, some wallpapers have the tiniest hardest to see brands.

And if anyone is curious I can tell you the last time I won and what it was.

No, you won't be automatically disqualified for making a mistake. I just needed to mention the branding for the rules.

Awesome, I have a bunch, but I tried to upload some last night and I got an error message on a few of them and they wouldn't work. Any idea's? I download a lot of wallpapers, rarely upload them.

Ben i have a question, does the size of the picture matter does it have to be the size of an actual wallpaper used on computers? Or can it be big enough to actually see what it is, and what's in the background?

Ben Dutka PSXE

Just go by the size restrictions when uploading.

Ben don't ban me for this but you always dog on ign fot having ads and bieng payed to review. When crysis2 was out you put up articles of the ps3 version bieng horrible. Now you have ads every second here, and now you say you "love" crysis2. Not bieng rude just feel like my favorite website got turned into everything it vowed not to be.

I don't see the correlation between the examples you used… did you check out his review of the game and read his complaints?

Ben Dutka PSXE

Not the slightest clue what you're talking about.

I have never once "dogged" on IGN for any reason whatsoever. Never even mentioned the site once. Not in thousands of articles in over 4 years.

Secondly, I never said I hated Crysis 2 once. In fact, the very first line in one major feature was, "Crysis 2 is a great game." The articles about Crysis 2 maybe being inferior on PS3 were news; not editorials. They were repeating what others said about the game…that's what news IS.

…maybe you could actually try reading. And the ads are not "every second."

For being your favorite site, you sure don't seem to be paying attention. I've been coming here for over 2 years now, not once did Ben dog IGN for having ads.

I got over 3235 widescreen wallpapers from 720 to higher than 2650×1400. And that's JUST for widescreen. I guess I'm game 🙂

I thought I had quite a few, but the restrictions say only 1920 x 1080 and 1280 x 720, so a lot were wide screen HD but didn't fit into that criteria.

sonic1899
sonic1899

I'm sure anything between 720 and 1080 can count. Yeah it seems quite a bit of them won't be qualified, but I'm sure I have a enough that will. Besides, 1080 is the majority
