Raise your hand if youíre interested in God of War: Chains of Olympus.

The few of you who caught my previous post in this vein already pretty much know what Iím going to say, but Iíll introduce my situation again for the newcomers. Sony likes to send me coupons for PSP-related purchases; they seem to think I have a PSP, which isnít true. Last time, they mailed one to me for $5 off any PSP game from Best Buy, but this time, they went the electronic route.

I got an email a few days ago from Sony that contains a coupon code for $5 off a copy of God of War: Chains of Olympus ó if you pre-order it from Amazon.com ($39.99 is the regular price). Thereís an additional special offer attached to the deal: if you pre-order the game with the coupon code, youíll get ďfree exclusive tracks from the God of War: Chains of Olympus soundtrackĒ. You wonít get them immediately; once the game ships, Amazon will send the songs to your Amazon accountís ďdigital lockerĒ. All told, that doesnít sound like a bad deal to me, but again, I donít own a PSP, so I have no use for the coupon.

Since I tried to hold a contest for my last PSP game coupon, and that contest failed miserably, Iím not even going to bother with something as complicated this time. Hereís what you have to do:

Pick ONE number from 1 to 100, and put it in the comments below. At midnight EST, which is in about four hours, the ďcontestĒ will end, and the person who has posted the number that is closest to (or exactly) the one I have in my head will win. Guess more than once, or guess more than one number, and you will be disqualified.

Of course, weíre working on the honor system here ó Iím going to take it on faith that youíll actually make use of coupon code and arenít simply preventing someone who genuinely wants to buy the game from getting it for five dollars cheaper. In other words, donít be a total fuckwad. And now that we have those unpleasantries out of the way, get guessing!
