Awsome. I hope I win. Maybe just second place. It sounds weird but I wanna be at home the second this things released. But the launch party would probably allow early veiwings.

Jah I've been trying to update as I've found information. I just entered so *knock on wood* I hope get something good

Nikoteen: Wutwut? The launch party would be insane, meeting all the R* execs and even playing the game before anyone else. Sa-weeeeet.

God damn 18 and over

I'd want that baseball bat more than anything. It's one of those exclusive prizes like the San Andreas BMX bike. As awesome as the launch party would be, I would just want to grab my game and run home. Either way I don't actually have a 360 so it would probably suck for me if I won, but I do have a gamertag

Well good thing is, I don't see where it says you NEED a 360, just a valid tag. But the 18+ might hold you back. There's some wicked sweet prizes.

Well yeah but it would suck if the launch party was just for the 360 version, I'd be like "Uh.. yeah, wooo, GTA IV wooo, yeah...."

Well it is a Microsoft-backed event. I don't if Sony is going to have one, but MS is doing a great job promoting the game (free theme and gamerpics were released with second trailer, this sweepstakes etc.).

Look again, that confused me too. Less people are winning the one years than 3 and 1 months, and vice versa, more winning 3 and 1 months.

Is says "Custom" Xbox 360 Elite. Wonder if will include the IV logo or be similar to the Halo Custom Elite. If so, I want that system and would gladly pay for it.

No need to, you'd be getting it for free. And I think it's only available in this contest.

My questions are ...

1. Why do 3rd place winners receive 500 MPs but 4th place winners receive 1000?
2. Similar question; why do 6th place winners receive a three-month Xbox LIVE subscription yet 8th place winners receive a year long Xbox LIVE subscription?

The list is very weirdly organized, but it has to do with how many people win of each prize, not the value of the prize itself. I think.
