VIP Bounty: The Big One

VIP Bounty: The Big One
 
 

Over 80,000 points up for grabs, and PlayStation Plus codes!

Today NZGamer.com is launching another VIP Bounty!

Any time you comment on the site between now and April 3, you’ll go in the draw to win yourself a grip of VIP points. In addition, we’ll be handing out PlayStation Plus codes randomly – so make sure to keep your eyes locked on the comments and forums!

Here is what’s on offer:

  • 3000 points for 5 Gold rank members
  • 2000 points for 10 Silver rank members
  • 1000 points for 20 Bronze rank members
  • 500 points for 60 Blue rank members
  • PlayStation Plus codes, randomly distributed in the comments and forums

Remember that these points help go towards raising your VIP rank, which comes with real benefits. You'll be able to gain additional entries into all our competitions, and earn prizes with each new rank!

For more information on NZGamer.com VIP, see the VIP page. Aren’t a member yet? Sign up here!

This competition has now closed.

Hey NZG, can you clarify entry.
"A minimum of 5 comments is needed to enter."
Does that make 1 entry, or 5 entries?
Is every comment an entry like it reads in bold? or groups of 5? or everything after 5 gives you entry? Or is there only 1 entry total and you just need 5 comments?

Once you hit 5 comments collectively anywhere, each subsequent one should be tagged as an entry.

Sounds good.

Have they decided on anything higher for the people that are already Gold like maybe a Platinum rank.

I like how theres a pool for each catergory.
With there being a pool for gold should we be expecting a higher level to be announced soon?

I'd be keen to have some PlayStation Plus codes to add to my never-decreasing 600+ days. It just never goes down and I haven't paid in years after after the initial 1 year surplus mistake, Honestly pretty comical.

Probably for the spot prizes and that you are the people who have been here the longest and have helped make the community what it is. Your involvment shows that you care more about fostering NZGamer than Playstation Live. ... or I am wrong and this is just another comment to help get my count up.

Can you explain what the one year surplus mistake was? Colour me intrigued. I've been a member since day one of PS+ but never got any extra "time" as such so lucky you :D

You can always stash the games in your library for the time when you finally upgrade to PS4, or buy a Vita... I'm lucky enough to have all 3 finally so its great to have a decent library to play from straight off the bat :)

I guess it depends on one's definition of inane. I'm relatively new, and yes I've posted a lot, but with that said, I've at least made some genuine contributions. Wrote a couple of reviews for Resident Evil 7 and Alienation on the PS4, as well as trying to strike up conversations in some topics with some though-provoking threads.

So yeah, while I do post a bit, I can out it down to a few things : 1) I work shift work, and sometimes nightshift can be pretty slow and 2) I'm passionate about gaming and the community :D
