Free Showdown Tickets


Update: Far Cry 2 and Dawn Of War II will be there.

If you fancy popping along to Stoneleigh Park for the day on 27th and 28th of September, for the PC Gamer Showdown, you now have a chance of grab a free day-ticket.

The first 250 of you to register at the official PC Gamer Showdown website will snag a pair of tickets to the event, see the action that goes down and go hands on with Left 4 Dead, FIFA 09, Mirror’s Edge, Facebreaker and more.

The “and more” bit is pretty interesting – I wish they’d hurry up and announce what else is going to be there! Go here to enter the compo.

    “We have 250 day tickets to giveaway to PC Gamer Showdown in association with LG!

    All you have to do, for a chance to play FIFA 09, Mirror’s Edge and Valve’s Left 4 Dead before any one else, is enter your details and the first 125 will get a free pair of tickets to the event!”

    Is that an inconsistency or are those numbers supposed to be different?

  2. Rak says:

    125 pairs of tickets = 250

  3. Alec Meer says:

    The clues are all there. Can you solve the puzzle?

  4. Ian says:

    @Rak: Oh yes.

    I’m an idiot, though it does say 250 to register in the article (not the link) which possibly confused me further.

    Carry on!

    P.S. Wish I could get to Kenilworth. :(

  5. Rak says:

    Ahwell xD

    Entered, hope I was fast enough.
    Just happen to be doing nothing that weekend so shall have a go at getting there.

    I’m from Norway, so not likely :(

  7. The Hammer says:

    Now to find someone to go with!

  8. Ging says:

    Woo, I too won…

  9. Adam Hepton says:

    Snaggage! Thanks, RPS!

  10. Aron Durkin says:

    thanks rps

  11. Paul Barnett says:

    I will be there on Saturday night.

  12. Malagate says:

    Apparantly I’ve won too, I won’t be wooing though until tickets actually arrive in the post.
    I want to know if any of the RPS writers are going to be there, I will be memorising their profile photos just in case…

  13. Optimaximal says:

    I entered and won with no real understanding just how far away Coventry was.

    *facepalm*

  14. Mr Peckerston says:

    are these BYOC tickets or spectator passes?

  15. Jim Rossignol says:

    Day tickets only. The BYOC tickets are for the whole weekend.

    At least two RPS writers will be in attendance.

    Without wanting to sound like I plan to hunt you down and stalk you, where is it you live, then?

    Or perhaps a better question is how long will it take you to get to Coventry from there?

  17. MacBeth says:

    I see Kieron will be there captaining a team of sorts…

    There ought to be RPS t-shirts/merchandise for sale, bring some cash in for the Hive Mind. Get on it!

  18. Diogo Ribeiro says:

    Damn you Brits and your far away tea drinking binges.

    South West – looking at a 2 1/2 hour drive… Plus there’s all that petrol :(

  20. EyeMessiah says:

    I won too apparently. Seems almost too easy. Is it a trap?

  21. Diogo Ribeiro says:

    Is it a trap?

    Beware the lures of PC Gamer, for they have big pointy teeth and an army of hobos.

  22. Aron Durkin says:

    Far Cry 2 and Prince Of Persia added, looks like POP won’t be playable though

  23. EyeMessiah says:

    Hrm, transport for a day-trip isn’t so viable from Glasgow. Round trip train ride for two is actually hundreds of pounds. Accursed country. I am going to destroy Britannia!

  24. Ging says:

    So, when’s the RPS gathering taking place? :D So I can book the right day off work!

  25. MacBeth says:

    I’m thinking the Saturday, as that’s when the ‘fun’ events seem to be – Sunday seems to be more about the competition finals which frankly I’m not that interested in

  26. Alex/Daffs says:

    Boo, finally someone holds a game-a-thon somewhere near me (ish) and I’m not around to click the button and get the free tickets?
    Boo.

  27. deadbob says:

    Jim, are you going to be there with a boot load of books to hock? :)

  28. Noc says:

    Alex-slash-Daffs, talk to one of the people here who won tickets but can’t make it. Maybe you can work something out.

  29. The Hammer says:

    Eh… I worked out I might not be able to make it. Perhaps I can help?
