The PSU Opinion Piece Challenge – $50 PSN card up for grabs

Courtesy of PSU community guru, Sir_Scud, we’re giving you the chance to pick up a $50 PSN card simply by letting us know your videogame opinions.

What is the Challenge?

Write an opinion piece for a chance to win a $50 PSN card. All you gotta do is type up an Opinion piece, submit it to the Community Reviews and Opinions section, and link your new thread to this thread. There will be some badass judges who will cherry pick the best of the best, that’s why it’s important your entry is linked to this thread. Once the judges make their picks, those authors will see their work front and center on the main page of PSU.

Here’s how you win: A voting thread will appear, and your fellow members will pick which article they think is the overall best opinion piece that exhibited both original thought and solid content. I will then crown the winner with a sweet $50 PSN card.

If there is high volume of entries, there will be more prizes.

When does this contest begin?

It already has! So you have from May 26-June 30th. On June 30th this thread will be closed and your content will be judged.

But Scud! My writing skills aren’t top notch, I can’t win!

For all those that don’t win, I will throw your entries into a lottery, and a magical random number generator will win one dude or dudette a $20 PSN card. So even if your writing skills aren’t perfect or if your piece isn’t the big thing, you still can win $20 on PSN.

Do keep in mind I reserve the right to deem any piece unfit for the challenge. You must meet the basic guidelines for your piece to stick. If it’s not a minimum of 500 words or just words with no true purpose, I will not count it.

Can I enter more than one piece?

No. You can only enter one piece, BUT you can change it if a week later you write the Mona Lisa equivalent opinion piece. All you have to do is edit your post with the new link, and you can do this up until the cut-off date. Just make sure I know so I edit the entries list to reflect the change. On June 30th the thread will be locked and the judges will do their thing.

If you already wrote an opinion piece, that can suffice as an entry to the challenge.
