The Fine Print Stuff
In addition to all the details for the games on sale, the different prizes and all that, GameStop wants you to be aware of the usual Fine Print items that come with promotions of this sort...
Remember you cannot win if you do not play -- and to play the first thing you will need is a code. Its the most important thing in the world (besides love and perhaps some other things). You can score your codes by shopping at a GameStop Store. When you do that you will receive a ticket with your unique code on it. You can also score a code by shopping on GameStop.com -- in which case your code will come in a premium exclusive email.
To score the codes you will need to complete your purchases between 06/2512 and 08/04/12 -- those dates being just as important as the codes themselves.
Once you have some codes head over to the GameStop website and enter your codes by clicking on the fancy box that says Play Now. At that point you will get to register and stuff, so that winners can get their prizes more easily. And that is about it! So if you are interested you should get your ticket(s) today and get to festivalling. And good luck!
Oh, and if you want to know more (like all of the legal mumbo jumbo) you will want to check out the Official Rules. We're just saying...
GameStop wants you to know that No Purchase is Necessary in order to Enter or to Win -- the Summer of Game Love Sweepstakes is open to legal residents of the 50 United States, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico who are at least 17 years of age -- but not if they happen to be employees of the Sweepstakes Sponsor and Sweepstakes Entities. Codes are available while supplies last and can be redeemed until 12:00 PM CT on August 11th, 2012. To obtain a copy of the Sweepstakes Official Rules, alternate method of entry, prize descriptions and odds of winning visit www.gamestop.com/gamestock.
Further Coverage of the Summer of Game Love Promotional Program
GameStop did not pay us to tell you about all this -- we did it on our own you know -- because like we said above, you cannot win if you do not play, and what with the massive boredom attacks that have been coming hard and heavy and with the need to help as much as we can in combating boredom, we figured we owed it to you to fill you in on all of the details here, since you know, it might help...
As continuing news of GameStop's Summer of Game Love promotion is made available Gaming Update will bring it to you, with particular attention to the game discounts that may prove to be very helpful in obtaining games with which to successfully fight the continuing battle against boredom we all face throughout the long hot summer!
