Design and win a Burton Snowboard
Wednesday, 20 August 2008
Ubisoft is inviting gamers, boarders and artists to compete to get their art in a video game! Design your own snowboard and submit it for a chance to have it used in the upcoming Shaun White Snowboarding game. Ten (10) boards will make it into the game as playable items and two (2) will be made in to real-life Burton snowboards! If you don’t want to design a board, simply voting on your favorite ones could score you some cool prizes!
Every 2 weeks until October we’ll pick 2 winning designs to add into the Shaun White Snowboarding next-gen videogame and pick from the most diligent voters who will receive prizes such as a Ubisoft XBOX 360® game pack. Then we’ll let the fans vote on all of the winning designs and choose 2 that we’ll make into real Burton snowboards! The board design winners selected on August 15 will be added into the game before it hits shelves. The rest of the winning designs will be added into the game via a free downloadable content pack dedicated entirely to showing off the winning designs.
We’re nearing 200 design submissions and over 3,500 ratings, with more being entered each day!
Even if you aren’t much of an artist, you can still win great prizes by rating the entries and telling us your favorites. Every time you rate a board you’ll be entered to win a sweet Ubisoft XBOX 360® game pack (all of Ubisoft’s best games for this holiday: EndWar, Far Cry 2, Naruto: The Broken Bond, Prince of Persia, and Shaun White Snowboarding), a copy of Shaun White Snowboarding, or a six-pack of Red Bull energy drink to help you get through an all-night gaming session. Not only will you help us choose the designs you want to strap into on the virtual mountain, you can help yourself out by scoring free stuff!
