Contest: Your first Xbox One or PS4 game is on us photo
Contest: Your first Xbox One or PS4 game is on us
by Niero Gonzalez

[Update: Contest over! Winners are ShiroYasha, KilpiBan, JONtoidColor, and Mr Grrrr!]

The PS4 and Xbox One are around the corner. You're gonna need games. We're happy to buy your first. Here's our first contest to win your way to a bigger next-gen collection!

Starting from right now until the systems are released, *FOUR* lucky Destructoid readers will win a copy of any game ($65 or less) of your choice, for either system. All you simply have to do is place a comment below stating which game you'd like and for which system. You may only enter once, and please make sure your email address is on file so I can contact you if you if you're our lucky winner. I'll update this post with two winners at the PS4 launch, and two at the Xbox. Games or platforms not yet shipping at time of winning will be made as pre-orders on your behalf. M-Rated prizes may require a phone call to your mother.

No gamer left behind: International readers are also eligible to win, too (via cash voucher).

We're also happy to announce an enhanced perk for HUGE Members: Double Contest Entries. To be honest, this one was kind of accidental: our software randomly chooses a random manual entry or a random upgraded account. Since you're allowed to participate in contests manually and may also might win automatically, you actually have double the odds of winning. HUGE international members also get the cash equivalent if they win. Whoot.

Good luck!
