As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Whoops - Edge & Schick give away free GT5, Killzone 3, and Infamous 2 DLC on accident
So Sony and razor manufacturer Schick along with shaving cream manufacturer Edge are running another promo where you buy their razors or shaving cream, and you get some PS3 DLC in return.
Some of the biggest franchises ever to hit PlayStation have had caused quite a buzz over the last few months. Gran Turismo 5 and Killzone 3 are both runaway successes. And with anticipation building for inFAMOUS 2, we’ve been hard at work looking for ways to help up the ante in your AAA action.
That’s why we’ve joined forces with Edge and Schick to help you get more of an edge in your life and your gameplay. This week, special edition Edge Shave Gel and Schick Quatro products are hitting store shelves nationwide. These custom Killzone 3, Gran Turismo 5 and inFAMOUS 2 packages are more than just collector’s items. Enter the on-pack code at edgeshave.com/ps3 and get your hands on your choice of downloadable content including:
A Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack featuring two popular maps from Killzone 2 OR three Unlock Points to use on the weapon or ability of your choice
A customized Chevy Camaro SS “Edge Special” for Gran Turismo 5
A special “Sniper Blast” in-game power for inFAMOUS 2. The long-range blast has a narrow area of effect to better equip you to take-on the enemy when inFAMOUS 2 arrives in June.
These special edition Edge and Schick products are available beginning today at select local retailers. You can head here for additional details.
Twenty seconds later it became obvious that the system could be gamed to get the DLC for free.
So, basically, you go to Schick's website, enter your details (which can be completely fake as long as you have an "@" symbol in the email field and your state/zipcode match) and you enter a code... that's printed on the bottom of every can... and on the UPC of every pack of razors... including the UPCs that are clearly visible on Amazon.com... like these two:
Then, you pick which of the four DLC options you want:
And you'll get a code that you can use on the PSN network (if you pick the Infamous 2 code you won't be able to use it until the game is released).
But if you're feeling bad because you're not sure which DLC you want to choose, it's ok! You can hit refresh, enter new (fake) details, use the same code from the two above, and choose again. And again. Etc.
