    Nominate PlayStation 3 Game Boxart for the Upcoming Boxart Tournament!

    Hello PSU Community!

    A while back, PSU did a PS3 game tournament and the number one PS3 game was crowned. I want to do something similar but not the same. I want to see what PS3 game boxart is number 1!

    This is not the number 1 PS3 game, this is the number 1 PS3 game boxart! Remember that!

    Any way, this is how this will work.

    Nomination
    The Nomination process features members of PSU nominating the box arts that they think are the best. This lasts 12 days and ends 7/7/13 at 12 p.m. central time. After 12 p.m. central time, I will declare that nominating box arts is complete.

    I will then count the 64 most nominated box arts and those box arts will be battling in the tournament. The box arts will be ranked into seeds. The box art with the most nominations will be named the #1 seed. The number one seed will have the advantage of going up against the lowest ranked seed or the box art with the fewest nominations.

    The battles will be set up with the higher seeds facing off against the lower seeds. The highest ranking seed left will ALWAYS face off against the lowest ranked seed left. The 2nd highest seed will get the 2nd lowest seed, the 3rd highest the third lowest, and so on.

    On 7/7/13, around 3 p.m. central time Round 1 will begin.

    Round 1
    Round 1 will feature 64 box arts and 32 battles. Round 1 will be divided into 4 parts: Round 1A, Round 1B, Round 1C, and Round 1D. It will be 8 battles in each division. Each division will last for 3 days and then the polls in that division will be locked. Then the next division polls will open. It will be a total of 12 days in Round 1. Once Round 1D ends, Round 2 begins.

    Round 2
    32 games and 16 battles. Round 2 will be divided into two divisions, Round 2A and Round 2B. Round 2A will have 8 battles and Round 2B 8 battles. Each division's polls will be open for 3 days. After 3 days, Round 2A polls close and Round 2B polls will open. Round 2 will last a total of 6 days. After 6 days, Round 3 begins.

    Round 3
    16 games and 8 battles. There will no longer be divisions. Round 3 will have one part and 8 battles. The polls for round 3 will be open for 3 days. After 3 days of voting, Round 4 begins.

    Round 4
    8 games and 4 battles. There will be no divisions and just 4 battles. This round will last 3 days as well. At the end of 3 days, we move onto Round 5.

    Round 5
    4 games and 2 battles. This is the final four! Once again polls will be open for 3 days. After 3 days, we'll have our top two PS3 box arts and they will square off in the championship!

    PlayStation 3 Box Art Championship!

    The top two PS3 box arts will face off for 3 days! This is the end of the tournament! The number 1 PS3 box art will be crowned!

    FAQ:

    1. How do I nominated a box art?
    Post the name of the game and what region or country has the box art. For example, one of our current nominations is Uncharted 2, Japan version box art. You do not have to post a pic with your nomination.

    2. Can a box art be nominated more than once?
    Yes. The number of times a box art is nominated will determine its seed in the tournament.

    3. What if some games are nominated the same amount of times?
    Then the game that was mentioned in the thread first will be picked as the highest seed of the games with the same amount of nominations. The 2nd game mentioned the same amount of times will be the 2nd, the 3rd game and so on. For example: 4 games have 6 nominations. The game mentioned first will get the highest seed of those 4 games. The 2nd game will get the next seed and so on.

    4. How do I participate in this tournament?
    It's easy! Members of PSU, all members, can participate by nominating box arts, voting in the polls, and even posting in the threads with the polls. Feel free to state your opinion or comment on the box arts.

    5. Can things change? What if 64 box arts aren't nominated?
    Then the tournament will not take place. We MUST have 64 box arts.

    Any questions, feel free to ask in this thread!

    Let's begin!

    Demon's Souls. Not the US cover either.
    Game so brutal, your dead on the cover.
    I also really like the Resistance 3 Cover.

    If you don't want to, you don't have to post a pic of every nomination. You can just name the game and the game edition. Also, when you recommend a special edition, the nomination falls under the original game name. So for example, if you nominated Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, the nomination would fall under RE 5 BUT a pic of the nominated editions would be in the poll when the voting gets under way. Does that make sense?

    And guys, please post smaller pics. The pics are making the thread stretch.

    Thank you.

    If all the games receive only one vote, seeds will be assigned by order of nomination. So if someone doesn't come into this thread and say "I nominate or agree with Uncharted 2" and each game has only one vote, then MGS4 would have the number 1 seed. Also, if all games have only 1 vote, only the first 64 games in the thread will be in the tournament.

    I think the Undead Nightmare cover looks pretty cool.

    The Last of Us is currently the number 1 seed because it has been nominated the most.

    I'd be willing to accept The Last of Us. I like the cover and the decision from Naughty Dogg to keep Ellie on there despite the analysts and marketing team.

    3 More Days and Round 1 will start!

    Edit:
    I've had a change of mind about something. I said earlier in the thread that if you recommend different box arts for the same game, it falls under that game. I decided that each box art will speak for itself. So Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 2 JP versions are different entries. Does that make sense?

    Tomorrow, around 7 p.m. central time, I will announce the nominees and what will be in round 1A and round 1B. Next, we'll start round 1A, which will last 5 days.

    It'd be good if we could get some box arts in here.

    I'm nominating:

    Bioshock Infinite

    Tomb Raider

    Heavy Rain
