Contest: Win a limited edition Infamous: Second Son statue! photo
Contest: Win a limited edition Infamous: Second Son statue!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Winner is skywes27!]

Our friends at Sony have given us two amazing Infamous: Second Son statues to hand out to the Destructoid community! These 12" Polystone behemoths feature Second Son's protagonist, Delsin Rowe, standing atop a diorama of destruction holding a real metal chain. Only 150 of these were made and their estimated retail value is $200, so these are true collector's items!

We'll be giving away one statue here on the site and another during our exclusive Infamous: Second Son playthrough with Chris Zimmerman of Sucker Punch tomorrow at 2pm Pacific over on Dtoid TV. To get your name in the hat for the first, tell us in the comments below what you're looking forward to doing most once you get your hands on Second Son! Being from the Pacific Northwest, I can't wait to get my feet wet on the rainy streets of Seattle... and then set them on fire with a blast of neon! What about you?

You have until this Sunday, March 9 at 11:59pm Pacific to enter, and the contest is open to anyone in the U.S. Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). It's pretty great!

Collector's Corner: Show us your collection photo
Collector's Corner: Show us your collection
by Bill Platt

[The latest Collector's Corner is all about you, we want to see your collections! We want to show them off to the rest of the Destructoid Community. Keep reading below to see how you can participate!]

I was having a discussion with a friend the other day, who also happens to be a collector, regarding the way he displays the games he's picked up over the years. You see, my buddy Brian is a huge nut for anything Atari, whether it is games, consoles, posters, manuals, pins, buttons, stickers -- anything. You name it, he collects it, and he has tons of stuff to show off.

His collection, while massive, is sort of hidden, such that the majority of his games and swag are not on display. He has a room dedicated to gaming, and on the back wall are two six-foot-tall shelves, each is just about four feet wide. On these shelves are various games (mostly Atari), some loose, and some in boxes. There are a couple of Atari-themed lunch boxes, and other miscellaneous items. The windows are adorned with vintage Pac-Man curtains. The walls are painted to resemble a level from the original Super Mario Bros. for the NES.

Basically, he goes all out.

Collector's Corner: Should you sell your current console? photo
Collector's Corner: Should you sell your current console?
by Chris Carter

[Welcome to Collector's Corner -- a community-centric series headlined by Destructoid's Chris Carter and Bill Platt. We'll not only be looking at various topics within the collecting scene, but we'll also share our own experiences, and occasionally highlight community collections too! -- Chris & Bill]

With every "next" generation of consoles comes an important decision -- what are you going to do with your old systems? While the PS4 and Xbox One loom over our heads this month, most of us can't help but give our PS3s and Xbox 360s second glances, wondering if we should sell them off to help pay for an upgrade.

But in our experience, it only ends in regret. If you're thinking of selling off something you've created so many memories with, stop and think for a bit. Because in the end, you can wait.
