ORIGINAL ARTICLE: Do you long for a large-scale, futuristic first-person shooter that requires strategy and tactics to win? Well, we have some good news for you. We are giving away some PlayStation Network voucher codes to our loyal readers.

Section 8 was originally released on PC and Xbox 360, but it has found its way to the PSN and is available today. The game features 11 multiplayer maps, three of which are unique to the PSN version. You can compete with up to 32 players battling it out online.  


The PlayStation 3 version also features superior graphics and enhanced gameplay because of additional development time, higher-res textures, and a streamlined multiplayer matching system. Section 8 lets gamers host 32-player matches through TimeGate’s proprietary TGNServer technology. This marks the first time any game will allow players to use home PCs to host multiplayer matches for the PS3.  

To celebrate the launch of Section 8, we have five voucher codes to giveaway. By now you should know our rules: only one entry per registered user and the winners will be contacted using their emails associated to their PSU account.

For this competition, we are going to try and do things a little different. You’ll have to provide us with answers to two questions. Simply respond to both questions in the comments section below, and make sure you follow the directions.


1) What about Section 8 gets you the most excited?

2) What is your favorite game image and why? Please check out our images here, and post a link to your favorite screen in your answer. Remember, we need to see the link to the image (we’ll only accept links from PSU, obviously) and a quick reason why you like it.  


You have until Saturday, March 27 at 1 p.m. EST (6 p.m. GMT) to answer. We will pick our five favorite responses and contact you shortly after the competition ends. Good luck to everyone, and happy hunting!
