CONTEST: Win a PSP game coupon!

As many of you know, I�m the happy owner of a PS3, and I have many games for it. But I�ve never been into handheld gaming; when I was young, my parents would only let my brother and me have one console at a time (per generation, that is), and now, I just don�t have the time or money to put into more than one gaming system � and that includes handhelds. I�ve been a PlayStation Underground member since the beginning of 1998, after I sent in the postcard that was in the box of my PlayStation (which I got for Christmas in 1997). They send me various promotional materials from time to time, such as game demos and advertising brochures for certain games, and sometimes, those brochures include coupons (yay!). Usually, though, the coupons are for PSP games, and since I don�t have a PSP, they�re of no use to me.

I recently received a Holiday 2007 booklet from Sony, which basically amounts to a 28-page advertisement for the PSP and its games. There�s one page in the entire thing that�s dedicated to the PS3, but it just features a short blurb about the connectivity between the two systems. Anyway, here�s the meat of the contest: the booklet includes a coupon that�s good for $5 off of any PSP game purchased at Best Buy. Here�s a picture below, just to preclude any �pics or it didn�t happen� comments:

The coupon does feature the phrase �some holiday cheer for you,� but it�s valid through January 31, 2008. While God of War: Chains of Olympus won�t be out by then, I�m sure you PSP owners will be able to find some reason to head on over to your local Best Buy and make use of this discount offer. Ah, yes: the terms of the contest. Well, since I only want to give this coupon to someone who actually has a PSP, I�m going to structure my contest very similarly (okay, identically) to the Velocity Micro PC giveaway that Destructoid is currently running. So in case you haven�t figured it out already, I want a picture of you with your PSP and Destructoid�s homepage displayed on it. As always, the picture that makes me LOL the most will win. I was originally planning on mailing the entire booklet to the winner, but I�m a poor college student, and all I can spare is forty-one cents for regular old first-class mail in an envelope, so you�ll just be getting the coupon after I rip it out of the booklet. Oh, stop whining already; this shouldn�t take that much effort. Good luck to all of you! The deadline for entries will be next Saturday at 12 AM (midnight) EST � in other words, Friday night. And hey...no Photoshopping skills required! Just post your entries in them thar comments below.
