Microsoft's Big Box of Awesome contest

This competition has been running for a while now and you have the last chance in entering it before the closing date (2nd May 23:59 PDT). So, do you fancy laying your hands on the box of awesome? US only, unfortunately.

It's contents are pretty impressive:

  • Samsung Focus
  • Samsung Series Notebook
  • Windows 7 home Premium
  • Microsoft Arc Touch mouse
  • Samsung 46" LED TV
  • Xbox 360 250GB console with Kinect
  • 3 Kinect-enabled games
  • Xbox Live 12 month gold membership
  • Microsoft Office Professional 2010

This bundle is worth quite a chunk of money so better get your entry in should you wish to be in with an opportunity to win, win, win. Please note -- however -- that this offer is through Facebook and requires access to your personal information, not to mention you are required to sign up and supply your name, address, email, etc.

That is a quality prize pack, although I'd swap the Focus for a Trophy and sell the Xbox since I already have one (but keep the Kinect).

GBarckley says:

i'd make use of it all.

Shame, I deleted my Facebook account. No biggie though. I didn't keep any personal information on there and I doubt I would just to win a contest (unless I was guaranteed to win).

Uhhh, another US-only contest...Microsoft, you cannot win only in US! You need to do more for worldwide developers! (or at least UK ones, as I don't care for the rest :-P )

-10 on Microsoft for requiring entry via Facebook. Nice prize, but no way am I willingly handing over personal information to Facebook.
