Raise your hand if you�re interested in God of War: Chains of Olympus.

The few of you who caught my previous post in this vein already pretty much know what I�m going to say, but I�ll introduce my situation again for the newcomers. Sony likes to send me coupons for PSP-related purchases; they seem to think I have a PSP, which isn�t true. Last time, they mailed one to me for $5 off any PSP game from Best Buy, but this time, they went the electronic route.

I got an email a few days ago from Sony that contains a coupon code for $5 off a copy of God of War: Chains of Olympus � if you pre-order it from Amazon.com ($39.99 is the regular price). There�s an additional special offer attached to the deal: if you pre-order the game with the coupon code, you�ll get �free exclusive tracks from the God of War: Chains of Olympus soundtrack�. You won�t get them immediately; once the game ships, Amazon will send the songs to your Amazon account�s �digital locker�. All told, that doesn�t sound like a bad deal to me, but again, I don�t own a PSP, so I have no use for the coupon.

Since I tried to hold a contest for my last PSP game coupon, and that contest failed miserably, I�m not even going to bother with something as complicated this time. Here�s what you have to do:

Pick ONE number from 1 to 100, and put it in the comments below. At midnight EST, which is in about four hours, the �contest� will end, and the person who has posted the number that is closest to (or exactly) the one I have in my head will win. Guess more than once, or guess more than one number, and you will be disqualified.

Of course, we�re working on the honor system here � I�m going to take it on faith that you�ll actually make use of coupon code and aren�t simply preventing someone who genuinely wants to buy the game from getting it for five dollars cheaper. In other words, don�t be a total fuckwad. And now that we have those unpleasantries out of the way, get guessing!
