Best RPGs Play & Win Sweepstakes starts for US

In the previous generation of consoles, Sony’s Playstation 2 was the clear winner as far as role-playing games are concerned, but in the current one, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 seems to be leading the field with successful RPGs such as The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, Mass Effect, and Blue Dragon. To commemorate the occasion that is “The Best RPGs are on Xbox 360,” Microsoft has prepared a new Play & Win Sweepstakes for the US.

Starting today, March 7th, 360 users can register for the Play & Win giveaway by signing up here, or by downloading the free Best RPGs Gamer Picture from the Xbox Live Marketplace:

  • Sign in to Xbox LIVE and access Xbox LIVE Marketplace
  • Select Game Store
  • Select All Games
  • Select Xbox 360 Community
  • Select Best RPGs Registration
  • Select Best RPGs Gamer Picture from the list of available content and select Confirm Download
  • Upon the successful completion of the Gamer Picture download you’ll see a Thank You for Registering message.

Once registered, you’ll receive one entry (limit five total entries) into the sweepstakes by downloading a piece of DLC for either Oblivion, Blue Dragon, or Mass Effect between March 7th and the 11th. Around April 1st, 500 names will be randomly selected, 200 of which will win 400 Microsoft Points, and 300 will be 1000 MSP richer.

All of the lucky 500 winners will get one entry (each) into the Grand Prize Drawing and only 11 will be selected in a random drawing to win one of the following prizes:

Eight Second Runner-Up Prizes: A 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold subscription

One First Runner-Up Prize: A prize package consisting of the following items:

Once again, the States get the cool contests. Sometimes it just doesn’t pay to be a Canadian. ~sighs~
