Contest: Win LA Noire for PS3 or 360

Contest: Win LA Noire for PS3 or 360

LA Noire releases on May 17, 2011, and Vivid Gamer is giving one lucky reader the chance to win a copy of the game for the platform of their choice!  We’re doing something a little different this time, to fit in with the detective theme of the game, so make sure you read carefully how to enter and optimize your chance of winning!

How To Enter

In LA Noire, you play the role of a detective, who must investigate crime scenes to find clues to solving various mysteries.  This contest is its own “mystery” of sorts; you must check our twitter every day to get the daily clue necessary to earn your place in the contest.

  1. Follow us on Twitter (or check it daily) – each day (May 12-18), at a random point in the day, we will tweet a daily contest clue.
  2. Once you learn the day’s clue, you must email it to – make sure you use a valid email that we can contact you with if you win.
  3. Each clue that you correctly email to the above address will give you one entry in the contest.
  4. The entrants with the most correctly emailed clues will be included in a pool to determine the final winner.
  5. The final winner will be chosen randomly from this pool, and will be be able to choose either a PS3 or 360 copy of the game.
  6. Commenting on the contest post and liking us on facebook will also give you bonus entries. Make sure you let us know who you are so your bonus entries can count!

If you like, you can email us only once at the end of the contest with all the clues and your contact info, along with whether you commented or liked us on facebook.  If you already like us on facebook, let us know!


  • You must have a US shipping address to enter (50 states and PR).
  • You must be at least 17 years of age to enter.
  • You must use a REAL email when submitting your daily clues so we can contact you if you win.
  • Please: each person can only enter once – if we discover you are using multiple emails to enter, you will be disqualified.
  • Following Vivid Gamer on Twitter or Liking Vivid Gamer on Facebook are not required to enter, and those who already do won’t be penalized: let us know in your email if you already like us!
  • Each email (or clue, if sent in one email) from our twitter feed will be counted as one entry for the contest; the more clues you identify and include in your emails, the higher the chance you have of winning.
  • Please do NOT post the daily clues in the comments below.  If you do, you will be disqualified.
  • Contest ends May 19 at 12PM PST.  All emails with clues must be received by this time; any entries received after this time will not be eligible.
  • The winner will be announced and notified within one week of contest end, no later than May 26, 2011.

Good luck to everyone, and stay tuned for our review of LA Noire!
