Last week we reported that Mass Effect 2 would be releasing on January 18 with a simultaneous retail and digital launch. That day was yesterday. So right now you can rush out to your local store and pick up a copy of BioWare’s sci-fi epic, Mass Effect 2, or choose the road paved in sweat pants and Cheetos and just download the game over the PlayStation Network. OR you can enter our sweet Mass Effect 2 giveaway for your chance to win a PSN download voucher for the entire Mass Effect 2 game (this voucher also includes the three expansion missions Kasumi’s Stolen Memory, Overlord and Lair of the Shadow Broker).
To reiterate: that’s no pants or payment required, yet you still get your hands on Mass Effect 2.
Entering our giveaway is a piece of cake, and should be familiar to Crave gaming contest vets. Just follow these simple steps:
1) Join Twitter if you aren’t already a member (sigh all you want, it doesn’t hurt your chances).
2) Follow @CraveNGN, our weekly gaming podcast’s Twitter account.
3) You’ll see a tweet by us announcing the giveaway.
4) Retweet that tweet.
5) Pray to be the lucky chosen one.
That’s it. Simple, right? We’ll be selecting the winner of the voucher by random after the cut-off time of 11:59 PM EST, Wednesday, January 19, 2011. The winner will be notified shortly thereafter. Because it’s a download code, this contest is not region locked.
However, do take note that this is the entire Mass Effect 2 game being downloaded to your HD. The file is massive and requires 12 GB of free harddrive space to download and install.
