GTA IV Xbox Live Weekend Social Club Giveaway

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 05:26 PM MDT | By rappo
Rockstar Games has just recently announced a brand new giveaway being held this weekend and upcoming week. The giveaway, open to all residents of the United States and Canada over the age 18, is really simple to enter - all you have to do is log into the Rockstar Games Social Club between September 19, 2008 and September 28, 2008 to be automatically entered.

The prizes are few, but the lucky winners are in for some awesome ones! One grand prize winner will receive home entertainment system worth $6,000 and one runner-up will receive a GTA IV-branded Xbox 360 Elite and other GTA IV merchandise. If you meet the requirements, don't forget to enter - let's get a GTAGaming user in on the prizes!

The official contest rules can be viewed here, including the detailed prize list:
One Grand Prize Winner will receive an entertainment center prize package consisting of a Sharp AQUOS 52” Flat Panel LCD HDTV, a Marantz SR7002 home theatre receiver, and a KEF KHT-3005 Speaker package.

One Runner Up Winner will receive an Xbox 360 Elite console and assorted Grand Theft Auto merchandise, including GTA IV Dart Board Set, GTA IV Pool Cue & Chalk Set, Baseball Bat, “IV” Hooded Sweatshirt, LCPD T-Shirt, Liberty City Swingers Baseball Shirt, and GTA IV Pin and Sticker Packs.

UPDATE: Just as a little clarification, the giveaway above doesn't require you to be an Xbox Live user - it only requires that you log into the Rockstar Games Social Club. According to a Take 2 Games press release, Microsoft is having their own additional giveaway, whose details can be found here. The prize includes an Xbox 360 Elite, 12-month Live subscriptiong, and 4,000 Microsoft points. Entry dates are between September 26 and September 28.

But wait, what does it have to do with Xbox LIVE? Does your Social Club account have to be linked to a gamertag, or do PS3 users get in on the prizes as well? I REALLY want a home theater setup or at least a half-way decent HDTV.

It really doesn't have anything to do with Xbox Live, I'm sure Microsoft just paid quite a bit for that to be the name :P The only Xbox-related thing is the runner-up prize. I'm pretty sure you can be a PS3 or Xbox 360 user to enter. I don't see why they'd only give Xbox 360's to existing customers.

Damn..a 52" Sharp AQUOS--that is some SERIOUSLY high-end kit. They're pulling all the stops on this one.

A 52" would be the perfect size to hang on my bedroom wall.

I just hope it isn't some Xbox exclusive cause I'm trying my hardest to get some HD gaming going on. 52" is HUGE especially since I'm still stuck with a 24" SDTV :(
