Now I for one find Taco Bell delicious. Maybe even addicting delicious. Almost everyone at my college hits up Taco Bell for lunch (which tends to end up with me snatching one or two of someone’s tacos). So for someone like me, PlayStation and Taco Bell’s partnership for a contest to win a PlayStation Vita makes me want to open up my wallet for the sake of winning while filling by stomach.
The best part about it? You may be able to win one before it even releases in stores! Check out the following details straight from the PlayStation Blog:
Starting January 26th through March 11th, one winner will be selected EVERY 15 MINUTES!
The folks at Taco Bell are eager to give you three ways to win your very own PS Vita: Unlock, Battle or Boast. Here’s a quick breakdown:
UNLOCK THE BOX: Beginning January 26th, Taco Bell’s specially marked $5 Buck Box – which includes a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, Crunchy Taco, Burrito Supreme and medium fountain drink – will also provide a code that can be entered online for an instant chance to “unlock” and win a PS Vita.
BATTLE: Download Taco Bell’s new mobile app to check out the exclusively designed Reality Fighters Dojo game where you can “battle” your friends to win a PS Vita.
BOAST: Taco Bell’s online contest will encourage you to submit a photo or video “boasting” about what you’re willing to do for a PS Vita. Submissions will then go into an online gallery where you and your peers can vote for the winners – it could be you!
Winning gets you the following:
- PS Vita 3G/Wi-Fi system
- PS Vita exclusive Little Deviants
- 4GB PS Vita Memory Card
- Your choice of one of the following: ModNation Racers: Raod Trip, MLB 12 The Show, LittleBigPlanet
So a Vita, a Memory Card, and two games, all for coughing up 5 bucks? Let’s do some math:
The PS Vita is going on sale for $249.99 (WiFi)/$299.99 (WiFi + 3G). So 250 and 300. That Buck Box is $5.00. That’s 50 $5 Buck Boxes and 60 $5 Buck Boxes.
Unfortunately my phone isn’t very high tech right now, so Battle method would be out of the question for me, but it sounds fun. For Boast, it seems I’d have to dig into my “What would I do for a Klondike Bar?” list.
With three ways to win a PS Vita, which would you prefer? If you ask me, I’d take the method that satisfies my stomach.
