last dreamcast contest header

Swirlvision has awakened from wherever they went and posted more details than I had about the GamePro last Dreamcast contest (see the story this past Thursday).

From the Swirl:

In the latest issue of Gamepro, (Issue 163 with VF4 on the cover), the magazine announced a contest to give away the final Dreamcast to come off the production line. The grand prize winner would receive the last Dreamcast ever manufactured, signed by all of Sega’s development teams, and every first-party Sega Dreamcast game, (55 games in total). 10 first prize winners will receive a one-year subscription to Gamepro magazine.

For those of you who would like to enter the contest, all you need to do is pick up the latest issue of Gamepro (Issue 163), fill out the entry form on page 117 and mail it in. Gamepro has also announced that people can enter through their website, (www.gamepro.com), however as of this writing, Gamepro has yet to establish an on-line entry form.

The official rules state that the contest will officially start on March 5th, 2002, (this may explain why there is no Gamepro website entry form at this time), and all entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. (PST) on April 5th, 2002. The drawing will be held on or about April 15th, 2002 and winners will be notified by mail. There is a limit of one entry per person regardless of the entry method.

This contest is being sponsored by IDG Games Media Group (owners of Gamepro Magazine) and Sega of America, and is NOT affiliated with Swirlvision.com. Good luck!

Here’s hoping that who ever wins, will donate the last Dreamcast to the Smithsonian, (but keep those 55 games of course!), whatever you do, don’t sell it on Ebay!

Swanky!
