Who Fancies Some Free Festive PlayStation Minis?

Posted by Sammy Barker

Raises hand

Sony is giving away four – yes, four – PlayStation Minis to gamers who participate in a spot of viral marketing this holiday. In order to unwrap the goodies, all you need to do is visit the manufacturer’s Facebook page and follow the simple instructions. You'll need to bombard your friends with plenty of promotional material in the process, but that’s a small price to pay for free copies of Velocity, BreakQuest: Extra Evolution, Canabalt, and Wizorb.

Sadly, the promotion is only open to European users at the moment. Those of you in North America will have to make do with a lump of coal.

I don't think this is a case of regional bias. It's just an instance of SCEE having a smart marketing initiative — which is what this is! — and SCEA either not getting involved, not getting told, or deciding to pass on the idea entirely!

EDIT: Having said that, for as minor as this is, I do think it's proactive schemes like this that maintain PlayStation's popularity in Europe compared to North America.

Sony of America is being awfully Nintendo of America lately...
"You get what we decide you can have. No games you really want that are in other regions."

Annoying.

Awww man! :( I saw BreakQuest & Wizorb on the list and decided this was the day I was finally going to give in and create a FB account. That is until I got to the EU part. SCEA has sure been giving us a lot of love these past few months.

On the flipside, though, Europe still doesn't have games like Counter Strike: Global Offensive and Retro City Rampage, and there's no word on when/if they will ever arrive.
