More free stuff! And it’s Friday – Free Stuff … Friday! This week we have a fun collection of prizes, we return with a video, and we have a special guest! As you might have heard, we have a new community manager in the halls of SEGA – Kate! Prizes, details, Kate and Julian – all below in the video, enjoy!
On the Block
1. Sonic Headphones & Awesome Neon Sonic Shirt! The headphones! They are back and they are still awesome. Even more awesome – we have one of the coolest shirts we’ve seen in a while – it’s a hit amongst our team. Neon. Sonic. Lacking in awesome or wanting to boost your overall awesome – look no further!
2. The House of the Dead Overkill – Wii Press kit! It’s coming to PlayStation 3 next week, so we have some House of the Dead goodies to pass out in the form of a fake VHS video cassette. This outdated technology once was used to show moving pictures! Inside we have one post card and one shirt, as well as the special cassette box.
3. Happy Tree Friends Wacky Wobbler! This prize is a throwback to our Happy Tree Friends downloadable title and is pretty cool. Featuring character Flippy in full wobble format it is also signed by Ken Pontac, writer on the Happy Tree Friends series! A true collectible!
4. Sonic Boom Shirt, Sonic CD Lanyard, Sonic Generations Buttons, and Sega Bag! Wow, big prize pack here for a big Sonic fan! The Sonic Boom shirts and Sonic Generations buttons were passed out only at our Sonic Boom event, the Sonic CD Lanyard and SEGA bag was a special giveaway at our Penny Arcade Expo event. Sonic Boom shirt is available in Small, Medium, and Large
5. Sonic Mini Figures Classic Collectors Set! Also a hit from previous giveaways! This pack includes all your favorites including Sonic, Super Sonic, Knuckles, Amy, and more!
6. Aliens Infestation Lenticular Print & Frame! This Aliens Infestation lenticular celebrates the 2D pixel art from WayForward. Featuring a battle between alien and colonial marine – this piece is a pretty unique giveaway that we made to promote the recent Nintendo DS game.
How it Works
1. You must be following us on Twitter to be eligible. (If you don’t have a Twitter account, you can create one by going to http://www.twitter.com and click the green “get started — join!” button in the center of the page.)
2. At random times on Friday, we will announce the prize we are giving away, a word or phrase, and what number of response you need to be to win. Send us a direct message (DM) via Twitter and be that number to win the prize. (@ replies do not count as entries!)
We tweet “GIVEAWAY: Sonic T-shirt, size L. Be the 15th person to DM “Sonic Adventure” to win!”
You see this, and want to win it, so you send us a direct message that says “Sonic Adventure”. If you are the 15th person to do so, you are the winner!
Quotation marks do not matter, capitalization does not matter, but spelling does matter!
3. All followers are eligible to win all prizes, unless a restriction is noted. Restrictions are usually due to the prize being region-locked. For example, US games that won’t work on UK gaming systems. There may also be age restrictions due to the rating of the game.
4. We will announce the winner on our Twitter feed once eligibility is confirmed.
How to Send Direct Messages on Twitter
Due to a change in our account status with Twitter, you should be able to send us direct messages without us following you.
There are a few ways to send us a Direct Message on Twitter. The easiest way is to go to our Twitter page and select “message” under the “Actions” heading in the side bar. If you do not see “message”, this means that we are not following you. Please send a message to @sega to let us know, and we will follow you. When you click “message” you will be taken to a window where you can type a message and press send.
You may also select the “direct messages” tab from your Twitter homepage, and select SEGA from the drop-down menu at the top of the page. Again, if you don’t see our name there, it’s probably because we’re not following you. Let us know, and we’ll follow you.
There are also many Twitter clients that you can use instead of using the website. These include TweetDeck, Twitteriffic, Tweetie, and Twhirl. Each of these programs works differently, so you’ll want to figure out how to send a direct message on the program you use. If you want to send us a test message, we’ll let you know if we received it or not.
