The Escapist Presents the Next Gen Giveaway

The Escapist Presents the Next Gen Giveaway

Today we give you the opportunity to win one of three fancy next-gen games. Don't miss out on all the fun.

In the past The Escapist has given away such things as a copy of Watch_Dogs and a Kindle Fire. This month, we team up once again with the talented people of GameFront to blow those other giveaways out of the water. This time around we are bringing our giveaway into the next generation of consoles. We are offering the winner the choice of Sniper Elite III on the Xbox One, Wii Sports Club for the Wii U, and The Last of Us Remastered on the PlayStation 4. You get to pick which game you receive if you win, we don't want you to win something you can't use so we've covered each of the newest consoles.

Whether you want to see skulls explode in bullet cam, get some faux exercise in, or survive the clicker-infested apocalypse, you'll have your game cut out for you. It's easy to get into the running for one of these fine games, you just need to go here to get started on your way to victory.

You mean "current-gen" giveaway.

Because it stopped being next-gen when the consoles came out.

I expect people will still be calling it "Next Gen" for a little while longer to say the least. I think that usually happens with every generation.

Edit: ...so The Escapist has been banned? Hm, how am I accessing this site then. XD

Its the actual Escapist account (if that is how it works), I came straight out of the news page to this one by clicking in the comments part of it to access the comment section of the news.

Is there any way to apply for this without allowing lockerdome to do a bunch of stuff on my twitter/facebook account?

Plus, I already follow Escapist on both twitter and Facebook, how the hell can I do it again to gain more points?

1st question, No
2nd Question, no idea don't use either

Odd choice of titles. Wii Sports is probably one of the weaker titles to give out, but I suppose I wouldn't mind getting it since I'm on a bit of a health-kick and faux exercise is better than none. Last of Us (while I understand is an HD re-release) is a last gen game and I refuse to acknowledge its existence (or any other HD re-release) as a current-gen game. That's only going to encourage publishers to keep pulling that shit. And... no opinions on Sniper Elite. Just not a series I'm into really.

Well, it's fixed now... either cocaine is a hell of a drug, or THE ESCAPIST profile is a hell of a glitch.

So in the case of it being a glitch...we blame Kross right? I've got the picture ready in these events for when the forum hamsters or something else glitches out on the site. :D

*Phew* And there was me thinking it was gonna be more lockerdome sh...

...oh.

Yeah Lockerdome, forget it, I'd rather buy the games that sign up for that crap.

you're going to have to come up with something more notable than that if you want to get people to give you advertising for pennies on the dollar

Bugger.

I would make an alt Facebook page for this but that'll be too much work for a tiny chance of a reward.

Is there going to be any actual competitions on the Escapist?

Next-gen? Current gen? Nah, the xbone and ps4 are neither of those.

They're PC's from 4 years ago.

Next gen is PC anyways.

Sorry Escapist. I already pay you $20 a year specifically to avoid your advertising. I'm not about to start doing advertising for you.

I don't remember it happening with the last generation, I think this time it's different because so many games are being made cross generation that it's important to make the distinction, and "Next Gen" still sounds flashier even if it's inaccurate.

It is ironic with half of their reviewers harping on about PC being the only platform worth playing anything on, that the Escapist would completely ignore them and not give a PC option for such a contest.
