Contest: Win a Titan One cross-compatibility gaming device!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Winners are SCndZ, Turbokill, and three Huge members.]

Our friends at ConsoleTuner have given us five of their new Titan One cross-compatibility devices to hand out to the Destructoid community!

These things are incredibly awesome. Compatible with the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC, they are the ultimate solution for the problem of not being able to use your favorite controller on every console. And because of the ability to swap button layouts, gamers can use this to adjust their controllers to their personal tastes (something especially important to you southpaw gamers). Plus, there's the GamePack feature: with a GamePack loaded, you get all the cool features that modded controllers can provide, without having to modify your controller and void your warranty.

For a chance to win one of these cool devices for yourself, just leave a comment below! Limit one entry per person, and you have until this Friday at 11:59pm Pacific to enter. Contest is open to anyone with a US shipping address.

Good luck! And don't forget, our Huge members get automatic entry into all contests (as well as a bunch of other awesome perks). Try us out!

Contest: Win your choice of a PS4, Xbox One or Wii U!
by Mr Andy Dixon

Update: Contest ends in a week. You could be our amazing weiner, dog! Good luck.

Destructoid is giving away a free next-gen console! That's right: one lucky Dtoider will get his or her choice of a free Xbox One (minus Kinect), PlayStation 4, or Wii U (deluxe bundle), and all you have to do to enter is push a couple buttons!

To compete, just push the big blue Enter button below and follow the instructions to earn entries. It's that simple! Of course, our Huge members don't need to do a thing; your membership already grants you automatic entry in full. (You can always enter manually to up your odds, though!) Oh, and one more thing: this contest is open to anyone in the world! (Cash value will be rewarded to international winner. For full contest rules, click here.)

Update: As many of you noticed, votes are verified LockerDome, which (amongst other things) makes sure cheaters aren't creating 9999 Dtoid accounts to win. The app wants permissions to use your social media to post (if you allow) but please note they're a legit company not super interested in spying on all your cat photos. You can revoke access, etc, like any other app that uses social connect.

Good luck!
