And because the only PlayStation 3 gamers to enter the contest were from outside of South Africa (and therefore ineligible to win), the following local Xbox 360 gamers will also receive a NFS: The Run shirt:
Congratulations to our winners and thanks to everybody for taking part! Hopefully we can do something similar in the future, ‘cause it was really fun to see everybody setting such amazing times!
We’re gearing up for the release of Need For Speed: The Run on November 18th in South Africa and to get ready for launch, El33tonline is holding time trials for the demo of the game on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Starting today, October 25th, we’re inviting you to set your fastest possible time on the Desert Hills track of the Need For Speed: The Run Demo and the people who set the absolute fastest times that appear at the top of the speed wall will each win a Need For Speed: The Run t-shirt!
How is this going to work and how will we determine the fastest times?
If you would like to take part in the fun, you can add us to your friends list on Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network, and then using EA’s Autolog online social connectivity tool, we’ll easily be able to see who’s setting the fastest times!
On Xbox LIVE, add El33tOliver and Numphie to your friends list, and on the PlayStation Network add Ofiler and Numphie – in order to qualify for the competition, you must add us otherwise we won’t be able to see your times over Autolog.
Here are the rules for our Need For Speed: The Run Demo time trial competition:
- Set your fastest time on the Desert Hills (first) track in the demo
- You must use the Lamborghini Gallardo
- Difficulty doesn’t seem to affect the speed wall timings, but set this to ‘Normal’
- Rewinds don’t seem to affect the speed wall timings, so use as often as you like
- The top three participants on our Xbox LIVE speed wall of the NFS: The Run Demo by November 1st will each receive a t-shirt
- The top two participants on our PlayStation Network speed wall of the NFS: The Run Demo by November 1st will each receive a t-shirt
- If you play on both Xbox 360 and PS3, only your single best time across both consoles will be accepted
- Regrettably, this competition is only open to South African participants.
This Need For Speed: The Run Demo time trial competition will run until the very end of October 31st – the demo goes offline on November 1st so be sure to get your time in before then!
Here’s what you’re playing for:
We encourage you to provide tips and to post your best times in the comments, but remember you need to have added us to your friends list on your platform of choice to qualify to win one of the shirts. Also feel free to add your Xbox LIVE and PSN nicks in the comments if you would like others to add you to their friends list.
While you mull the proposition over, be sure to read Lisa’s adrenaline-fuelled preview of Need For Speed: The Run over here, and also pick through El33tonline’s previous coverage of the game for tons of trailers, screenshots and extra details.
Thanks to EA South Africa for providing the shirts, and thanks to El33tonline reader POItjie for suggesting the competition!
