Lgndary Thoughts - Expanded Giveaways


Today marks the conclusion to the August giveaway. The winner has been decided, and the game code will be sent out shortly. But instead of talking about this week's giveaway, I'd like to talk about the future of GoingSony Giveaways. Welcome to Lgndary Thoughts!

This Thought will be on the shorter side because I would really just like to take this opportunity to see if there is any interest in expanding what I actually giveaway monthly.

Ever since the start of GoingSony Giveaways, I have been exclusively giving away digital games, with the occasional PS Store card thrown in. If there is enough interest, I would like to try giving away physical stuff as well. Giving away something physically would also solve the regional problem, as I would be able to ship it just about anywhere. 

The problem comes from what I could actually use. Sony doesn't have anything as universally popular as Amiibo, so it is difficult to think of something that most people would like. So that is why I have come to you! Any kind of suggestion would be greatly appreciated, it doesn't even have to be a physical prize. The overall goal is to be able to give away things that are more popular, so please keep this in mind as you write up your suggestions. Thanks everybody for participating this week, and I look forward to hearing what you all have to say about the future of GoingSony Giveaways!

Mortal Kombat X for PS3 has been cancelled

Coming from WB Games:

After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
