For some reason that link (http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/...0st/index.html) doesn't work... although its the same address as the one below (nearly). When I click yours there is a space between the 'e' and 's' of contest.
Without the space it works though :)

Only for XBL :)!! Thats going to piss some fanboi's right off. LOL

It's gonna piss me off too. I really love GTA a lot, but this pisses me off. WHY DOES EVERY GODDAMN CONTEST HAS TO BE OPEN ONLY TO US AND CANADIAN RESIDENTS? What about Asia? Europe? Has Rockstar Games totally forgotten these places. And, Australia? South America?

Look, I have an Xbox 360, but I want to take part. I can't.

Rockstar, please?

This contest is by no means only for Xbox Live. It doesn't even say that anywhere... They're just giving away an Xbox.

And as for only being US and Canada - probably due to laws/taxes/import rules and other things that Rockstar does not have the resources to investigate :p


EDIT: weird...dokujitsu.. that page pretty much says completely different things. it says that you have to have an Xbox gamertag and play GTA IV online to be entered. i dont know which one to listen to!

EDIT2: Okay, I think there might be two competitions goings on, and one is held exclusively on Xbox Live. Here's what it says:
Quote:

Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), and Microsoft proudly present the Grand Theft Auto IV LIVE Weekend exclusively on Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network beginning Friday, September 26 through Sunday, September 28 in the United States and Canada. This special weekend will be open to Xbox LIVE Gold members of the Xbox LIVE community.

Gamers who register for Play & Win will automatically be entered into a drawing to win exclusive prize packages just for playing with friends on Xbox LIVE. Prize packages for Play & Win include select Rockstar gear and an entry into the Grand Prize Package drawing. The Grand Prize Package includes, but is not limited to, an Xbox 360® Elite console, a 12-month Xbox LIVE Gold subscription card, as well as 4,000 Microsoft Points!

Register for the sweepstakes online at www.xbox.com/CauseChaos before the close of the entry period on September 28, 2008, at 11:59:59 p.m. EDT or register via Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Xbox 360 by downloading the free Grand Theft Auto IV LIVE Weekend Gamer Picture before the close of the entry period.

Players can test their skills by jumping into multiplayer matchmaking to go toe-to-toe with the actual Grand Theft Auto IV development team. Members of the team will be online between 3:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. EDT on Friday, September 26 to play with fans.

In addition to the Microsoft contest, during this special event gamers can win exclusive prizes in Rockstar Games' Social Club contest.
and then it continues on about the Social Club contest. So there are indeed two going on. Source: http://ir.take2games.com/ReleaseDeta...leaseID=335593

Sorry, the name of the comp confused me. Can't guess why?! :rolleyes:

As far as R* supposedly not having resources to investigate... well that just an assumption that if true, would really surprise me. Especially considering the size of their team in the UK. And if with that workforce they don't know European laws etc. then thats just funny.

But as ever though its seems that the US and Canada are given all the good stuff, while the rest of us get to sit and watch. Which is crap considering we've all paid for the game(s) too.
