If you like music-based games and/or Green Day and you live in North America where it's possible to play NTSC games on your PlayStation 3, well, have I got a deal for you!

I have a copy of Green Day: Rock Band for the PS3. It's just the disc, no manual, but it's a retail copy of the game and I've tested and played it. The game works great and it can be yours, but you'll have to work a bit for it.

Yes, this is a contest. You need only follow the following steps to win:

1) Write and submit a new review of a game with music as a serious component. It can be a game on any system. It can be a music/rhythm game, it can be a dance game, it can be a karaoke game or it can just have characters who sing. A lot, mind you, but I'm willing to stretch things so that as long as music is a major component of the game, you're eligible.

2) Watch for the review to be approved by staff. When it is (assuming that it meets site standards), reply in this thread with the URL of the review. When you post, feel free to compliment me on how awesome I am (not required).

3) On or shortly after July 15th, assuming that there are three or more eligible reviews entered (if there aren't, the deadline may be extended), I will look through all eligible reviews and I will pick the one that I like the most. I will likely comment on most or all entries to explain my choice. Watch the usual places (Facebook, Twitter and this thread) for word on who I have chosen as the winner.

After making my choice and announcing the winner, I will then contact the winner to get an address where the game should be shipped. Please note that there is a limit of one entry per person. All staff members and site staff are eligible, as long as they have an address in the US or Canada. Failure of the winner to get back in touch shortly after the winner is announced will prompt me to pick a new winner, if necessary. I also reserve the right to change this contest's rules as necessary, but if I have to make any changes I'll update this post and I promise not to make unwarranted changes.

This contest is void where prohibited by law and such, of course, but I'm not sure that anyone who might want to participate has to worry about that, anyway. Really, this is me cleaning out my apartment (which is way too full of cool stuff I don't need) and trying to get some of that cool stuff to the people who most want it. Have fun with this!

Why would you do that to someone?

You're a monster.


For us. For them. For you.

One would think reward, not punishment, should be bestowed upon someone who wins a contest.


You exist because we allow it. And you will end because we demand it.

Green Day: Rock Band is the only Rock Band game I'm missing. But I need a PAL Xbox 360 version.

Come on, guys! Some people do actually like Green Day, you know. I'm sure of it because I'm one of them.

Eh, they're not bad. I prefer their older stuff, but I wouldn't classify their newer music as torture.

Although I do particularly despise the song Minority.

That's a Minority perspective if ever I've heard one!
