Calling all fans of Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City. Both games are now available to play on Xbox One thanks to backwards compatibility

The Twitter announcement made today is making a lot of gamers quite happy. Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition is also compatible on the Xbox One. Digital game owners have instant access on Xbox One -- just download it from your “ready to install” section. If you physically own a copy, just insert the Xbox 360 game disc into your Xbox One to download. Original game saves will transfer if you saved to the cloud on Xbox 360. For those who don’t have Grand Theft Auto IV, grab it in the Xbox store.

Enter GTA IV to rehash memories of playing Niko Bellic in Liberty City as you strive for the American Dream. Revisit Roman, Vlad, Dimitri, Mikhail and Michelle once again. Grab the expansions "The Ballad of Gay Tony" and "The Lost and the Damned" while you're at it too.

Sweepstakes for Life Is Strange vinyl soundtrack launches https://www.gameskinny.com/1rrdu/sweepstakes-for-life-is-strange-vinyl-soundtrack-launches https://www.gameskinny.com/1rrdu/sweepstakes-for-life-is-strange-vinyl-soundtrack-launches Tue, 12 Jan 2016 10:17:00 -0500 Zanne Nilsson

Square Enix recently announced that to celebrate the upcoming physical release of the award-winning Life Is Strange on January 19, they're holding a sweepstakes to give away five copies of the game's soundtrack on vinyl. Everyone who orders a physical copy of the Life Is Strange limited editions through Square Enix's online store will automatically be entered in the sweepstakes.

All of the limited editions in the online store can be bought for $39.99, but PC gamers who opt for a limited physical edition instead of the standard download will get the biggest price hike. While Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players will only have to pay $10 more than they would for the standard versions of the game, the physical limited edition of the PC version costs $20 more than a standard download of the complete version of the game.

The sweepstakes announcement includes the following glowing description of the rare soundtrack prizes:

Featuring over 20 tracks, the Life Is Strange Official Soundtrack [VINYL EDITION] is a 2 record set that was made in extremely limited quantities and cannot be purchased anywhere! When opened, you'll get some beautiful artwork of Max Caulfield across its 24 inch wide bi-fold sleeve. To make this soundtrack extra spacial, we'll be getting them signed by a special developer from DONTNOD before sending them off to the 5 lucky winners. Unfortunately these literally just came in so we haven't had a chance to sign them yet, but rest assured that they'll be signed when the sweepstakes is over!

The rules of the sweepstakes, along with other details, can be found here.

PlayStation announced that gamers with PS Heroes will be given the chance to purchase an exclusive Horizon Zero Dawn PS4 theme. 90% of profits from these purchases are going toward the USO, a non-profit charity organization that provides support for U.S. troops and their families.

As a part of the PS Heroes promotion, gamers will also be given the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to New England to play Madden NFL 16 with Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. This limited promotional period only lasts from August 4th and ends September 1st at 1:00PM PST, so be sure to enter while you still can.

There are multiple types of Horizon Zero Dawn themes to choose from in the PlayStation Store. According to the rules on the PlayStation Website:

Entrants who purchase a:

  • “Bronze” Theme will obtain 1 entry;
  • “Silver” Theme will obtain 5 entries;
  • “Gold” Theme will obtain 10 entries;
  • “Platinum” Theme will obtain 15 entries;

Purchased Theme(s) can be accessed through the “Themes Library” under the “Settings” menu in the PlayStation®4 system. Theme purchases are subject to the terms and conditions of PlayStation®Store.

This news comes after both the PS Heroes release in February and PlayStation’s E3 press conference in June that officially introduced Horizon Zero Dawn for PS4. The third-person action RPG is being developed by Guerrilla Games and will be released sometime in 2016, but can be preordered now.

Get Some Great Prizes in the BL2 $100K Loot Hunt! https://www.gameskinny.com/exj7o/get-some-great-prizes-in-the-bl2-100k-loot-hunt https://www.gameskinny.com/exj7o/get-some-great-prizes-in-the-bl2-100k-loot-hunt Sat, 05 Oct 2013 11:44:50 -0400 Raven Hathcock

Get ready for some massive loot - in-game and in real-life. The Borderlands 2 $100K Loot Hunt sweepstakes begins on October 11, 2013. Great prizes and tons of money are at stake and all you have to do is play.

If you register before the 11th, like I will be doing, your job is to hunt down a daily target. This target will change daily and include tons of loot and will help power up your guns. By hunting the daily target everyday, you put yourself in the running 28 times, which will put you in good standings for the real-world prizes. Yes, your character is going to be a fine vault hunter after this, but why not treat yourself?

The thing is you are going to want those real-world prizes. One lucky loot hunter will win a grand prize of $50,000, and four others will win varying amounts of cash totaling another $50,000. Too bad only US players are eligible for the prizes. However, all players worldwide can participate in the Loot Hunt, and receive the in-game loot.

Now for the prizes! From entering in the contest (which you can do 28 times), you will be in the running for:

  • PlayStation Vitas with copies of Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita once it's out
  • Custom Borderlands 2 Turtle Beach headsets
  • An Nvidia Shield PC Streaming set-up with a Tiki PC by Falcon Northwest
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Ti GFX cards
  • Borderlands 2 Game of the Year Edition Strategy Guides by BradyGames
  • Lifetime supplies to all 2K titles on Steam – past, present, and future

I almost didn't want to posts this article, the loot is too good. For the official rules of the Borderlands 2 $100K Loot Hunt sweepstakes, please check out their website. Good hunting everyone!
