In the meantime, it's

The Second Annual E3 Sony Conference Competition!
Last year, we ran a contest to see who could guess how late the press conference would start to win a £20 PSN voucher. Then it was rendered a complete waste as it started 3 minutes early, so we're changing it up a bit this year.

The Prize: £20 PSN Voucher + L.A. Noire + Marvel vs Capcom 3

There are three components to this competition:

1. Two Words: Mon. Tage.
Sony loves sizzle reels. They're a really good way to show games that are so early in development that only work for a couple of seconds before crashing and leaking your CC information all over the internet. And they pad dem lists with tons of pretty bullet points of games that may never even see the light of day. Holy gooseberry fool, was that a new Army Men game? Who gives a strawberry float.

So for the first part of the competition, you have to make two guesses:
a) How many multiple-game montages will be shown?
b) how many individual games will be shown in said montages?

You'll lose one point for every number you're out in each guess.

2. Do Not Underestimate the Power of PR
This part of the competition is brought to you EXCLUSIVELY on 3D GRcade, and is ONLY POSSIBLE on Full HD 1080p 7.1 Surround Sound SACDs. Or something.

How many times will the phrase "only possible on..." be said?
Again, -1 point per amount your guess is out.

3. Megaton Bingo
This is simple. Hidden behind each square of the 5x5 grid below are the names of some games that may or may not appear at the Sony Conference. They range from certain things like Uncharted 3, to absolute no-hopes like Gears of War 3. I'll reveal what the games are when the competition entries close.

Just pick a co-ordinate.
If your game shows up you get +5 points!

You did, in the example. Ergo, I did.

It works that way in Battle Ships :? The geographical co-ordinates system also refers to co-ordinates with the horizontal first, and then the vertical, as a standard.

*puts on HSH voice*

Everyone else is wrong.

Woah, strawberry float, I got them the wrong way around in that second post. I meant "numbers before letters". BAKA got it right.

Who's supplying the prizes by the way? Pretty awesome competition. I almost feel bad for the swash of 'cheap strawberry floater' judgements the posters of Nintendo and Microsoft's conference threads are going to get now.

Just me. I'm not trying to upstage any of the other thread posters or anything, I just love E3 and wanted to add a bit of extra fun. I'd have run this competition regardless of whether I had dibs on the thread or not. There's a tiebreaker that involves the Nintendo conference and Reggie's hands.
