Win a PS3, PS Vita and three great games with PlayStation Universe

18 December 2012

PSU has teamed up with U.K. publisher Ripstone Games to giveaway a host of great prizes, including a PlayStation 3, a PlayStation Vita and three exciting brand new games!

Ripstone has released a trio of great games for PS3 and PS Vita over the Christmas period and we’d like to give you the chance to play them for free on a brand new console and handheld.

                                   

First up, is Big Sky Infinity, an addictive arcade-style, twin-stick shooter from Boss Baddie & VooFoo. If you never played Really Big Sky on PC you’ve missed a real treat, but this re-imagining of the space-based frenetic shooter is the perfect pick-up-and-play downloadable title. Furthermore, if you buy it on one platform you get it on the other entirely for free! Big Sky Infinity is available to download on the PlayStation Store right now.

                        

Next up is Knytt Underground developed by Nicklas Nygren, better known by his handle “Nifflas”. This talented developer has become popular in the indie scene for a number of PC titles, including Night Sky and Knytt Stories. Knytt Underground is all about exploration across a beautiful and strange world and blends unique platforming levels with story-driven quests. It looks to be a totally unique experience and well worth a look when it releases on both platforms on 18th December 2012 in the U.S. and 21st December 2012 in Europe.

                      

Last but not least is Cosmic Clean-Up for PlayStation Mobile and PlayStation certified devices, which includes PS Vita. Developed by Green Hill and available from December 19th, Cosmic Clean-Up is an accessible space-based 2D game of skill with four enchanting worlds to explore and 10 challenging levels to crack. You can also help clean up the galaxy with a few tricks up your sleeve thanks to a variety of unique power-ups, including Afterburner and the Fire Shield.

                       

The competition
We’re not only giving you the chance to win all of those games, but we’re also giving you the console and handheld to play them on. All you have to do to win these great prizes is to answer three questions based on the games. You’ll find all the answers on the official Ripstone website by digging around.

1. Which cross-platform compatibility feature does Big Sky Infinity have that allows you to continue progress between both PS3 and PS Vita platforms?

2. Approximately how many explorable rooms are there in Knytt Underground?

3. Name one thing you have to burn away with the flames of your thruster in Cosmic Clean-Up?

Make sure you check the official website very closely for each answer. Answers can be submitted either: below, via the official competition thread, on Facebook, or via Twitter by including @RipstoneGames and the three answers in your response. Ensure you label each answer clearly to avoid confusion, i.e. 1. Multiplayer, 2. 1,000, 3. The moon.

Winners prizes
The winner, who will be drawn at random on the closing date of December 31, 2012, will receive a PlayStation Slim 320GB, a PS Vita, plus a copy of all three games (Big Sky Infinity, Knytt Underground & Cosmic Clean –Up).

One runner-up will receive a copy of all three games on PlayStation 3 plus a selection of branded goodies.

The rules
Please note: the competition is only open to UK residents only. If the winner chosen is from somewhere other than the UK then we reserve the right to re-draw until a UK resident is chosen.

The winners will be contacted directly and notified via the official forum thread after the closing date of December 31st, 2012. Prizes will be sent out in January.

Only one entry is allowed per person. If we find out you’ve entered via multiple methods you will forfeit the right the win.

Good luck everyone!
