How to Get a Free PlayStation 3

Sep 23, 2007
In a fury, the public greeted the latest craze in gaming consoles as the Playstation 3 hit the entertainment world. Through a series of huge Sony marketing schemes, you could not go anywhere without hearing or feeling the anticipation for a product that promised better graphics, color, sound, and other exciting features. The popularity of the Playstation 3 also made it possible for Ebay resellers and independent retailers to markup the price of owning one of these units, especially in time for the Christmas season.

The desire to get a hold of this popular gaming console drove the public deeper into their pockets, so when the chance to obtain a free Playstation comes about, many will jump at the opportunity. To further the interest in the Playstation 3, Sony held a slew of local and national promotions offered both on the Internet and offline. Others caught on to this particular idea as a way to tap into a lucrative goldmine, offering their own giveaways. Below, you will find some of the ways people may acquire a Playstation at no cost:

Radio
Disc jockeys use promotional giveaways as a common technique to keep radio fans listening. If you periodically check your favorite radio station, you may find a contest involving Playstation 3. For country, jazz, or classical music fans, you might want to linger a bit on radio stations geared towards pop, rock, and hip-hop, which are more likely to offer a free Playstation as an incentive.

Television
News stations often offer giveaways for loyal viewers. It never hurts to see what type of contest or promotional gimmick they are using to increase viewer-ship. Do not feel like catching the news? Pay a visit to their website where contests are also advertised. Most often, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire in order to participate.

Internet
Although there are numerous websites offering a chance to win a free Playstation through a variety of promotional giveaways, it is important to check the legitimacy of sites. There are tons of impostors, who wish to gain your personal information and will do anything to lure you to the bait. Offering a Playstation at no cost is just the thing to tempt the unsuspecting.

Charities & Fundraising
Some students have been able to win fun items, such as a free Playstation when participating in fundraising and other charity functions. Whether it is selling the most Girl Scout cookies or collecting the highest amount of canned food, some organizations offer prizes for the most productive participants.

Giveaways
Malls, department stores, and especially electronic stores are known for giving away popular gifts or products through a wide range of contests. Sometimes kiosks situated in a store or shopping mall will capture the attention of the public, enticing them to fill out forms for a prize drawing. Since the Playstation 3 is such a popular entertainment system, the chances of encountering such an offer are pretty high.

Participation Reward
On the Internet, there are many opportunities to win prizes through participation. For instance, when you fill out a survey, your personal information can be entered into a prize raffle or drawing. Some websites will increase the number of times your name is entered into a giveaway according to the total amount of surveys you fill out.

With so many places to get your hands on a free playstation, you should go out there and try your luck.
