Entered Hope I win, this would be great at parties. They can finally put down Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games



Atlantis1982 said:

Well good luck to all. I wouldn't mind winning this, if not then congrats to the lucky three.



KaiserGX said:

Please please please! I wanted this game but I don't have any money and I haven't won anything on this site yet!!!! D: AGH!!!



KaiserGX said:

I already sold everything I had, that I would be willing to sell. All that got me 8 bucks...



47drift said:

Very exciting! I'm really looking forward to this title but don't have aaaany money, so this would be a real treat to win.



Mart2006 said:

Yeah, I was looking forward to this, but there's no way I'd afford it, what with Skyward Sword, and the 3DS + games.

Oh, and it says 'Developer: Nintendo', when it was developed by Square Enix.



OldKai said:

Can't believe I had to look this up, and great that it's open to America too.



Squiggle55 said:

cool, I love drawings. and this is a game I think looks like a lot of fun but wasn't sure if I'd actually buy it. perfect! good luck to all!



shinesprite said:

Yay, another contest! Hopefully the next one will be for a 3DS!
Also, I hope a few regulars win (including me).



Pastry said:

Let me think... there are 1000s of people on the site...
3 copies are being given away...



wes008 said:

Hey, James. Remember, you owe me a favor. See if you can fudge the numbers a bit



Shugo said:

The answer was obvious to me just from the names... I mean come on, when have the other two ever appeared anywhere else in the Mario spinoffs?



dsmaster said:

Wow, great contest, glad it's open to both european and north american gamers.



pikku said:

even though the odds are astronomically slim that I'll win, I entered since it's for US



bboy2970 said:

Hope I win! All I've won from this site is a T-shirt that the company never sent to me



Zach said:

@bboy2970 That's very strange... I've emailed our contact for that competition to find out what's going on. Hopefully I'll have some information for you soon.



thaantman said:

Great sweepstakes to start off the year, and @ least every1 has a decent chance, it's not a US or UK exclusive and this is one of the biggest releases this year. Don't expect to win, but you can't win if you don't try so I won't give my hopes up, hope it's more sweepstakes like this, I hate when theirs an awesome prize being given away and it's for UK only, and I'm sure UK feels the same way when it's US only.



Tasuki said:

Thank you Nintendo Life.

Just one question what happens if you win. Will they ship you a copy or do you have to go one of the stores to pick it up?



Nintendo_723 said:

With the 3DS coming up, I won't be able to get around and buy this game. Wouldn't it be a dream come true if I actually won, huh?



komicturtle said:

"Thank you Nintendo Life.

Just one question what happens if you win. Will they ship you a copy or do you have to go one of the stores to pick it up?"

It says towards the bottom that they will contact winners for address and stuff. I'm not flying over to another country to pick up a free game if I win

Glad I knew the answer without looking it up- cuz I'm kool...

No, seriously, I've been listening to the soundtrack to this game ever since it came out in Japan and I love it. I have mine on pre-order (no real reason though).



Deviant_Mugen said:

Well, I entered. Now all that's left to do is wait for three people that aren't me to be picked as the winners...



Sandile said:

If I dont win this, I wont buy this even though I want it. I must save for 3ds!



Bobpie said:

Boooohooo!! I accidentally tapped the entry button on my iPod an entered an incorrect answer! Anything I can do about that, admins?



Mabbit said:

Hmm, if I keep entering all these competitions, I'm bound to win one eventually >:3



Morpheel said:

using a little logic you don't even need to know that much about the game to guess the answer.

I'd love get this game! I have never played a mario sports tittle.



Kaeobais said:

insert random "I hope I win" text

I've always liked the mario sports games (especially the original Strikers. So much fun.). Here's hoping (not that there's much doubt ) that this'll be excellent :3



Portista said:

I know what the answer is so I think I have a pretty good chance of winning. Yay! Also, I just became registered so I'm pretty happy right about now.

EDIT: Are the games that are being given away UK versions because I have an American Wii so...



Big_A2 said:

@TheColorsOfSonic: PAL is the kind of consoles that are sold in Europe and Australia. Ironically, these consoles are not your friend, and will constantly beat you up with extra delays, higher pricing and 50hz issues.



Azikira said:

Entered~ ^^ Hoping I can win, otherwise im gunna have to wait a few months before I can afford MSM



Meteora said:

I guess now would be a good time to start posting so that on the off chance that I DO win, I won't be pegged as a random new user.



TingLz said:

@Dazza: Isn't Games Basement a EU games shop? If so, how did they come across NTSC versions of the game?



Georgefuzzums said:

Good luck guys. you before me! wish you could all win!

o.K. I doooo want to win to.... cough!!!

SOOO.Oooooo....... EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Shirma_Akayaku said:

I can see that everybody wants to win this badly. the only thing I can do is wait and see the outcome and accept what happens, win or lose.



NGpenguin said:

Good luck everyone!!

Im hoping to win, but its almost imposible. Im not even sure if i got the question right........

dsman said:

I think this giveaway had an easy question to offer i know its definitely #%$@ just by looking at it!



miketh2005 said:

Thanks! Love me some Mario Sports games. I really need a new Wii game, the only other one I have is Wii Sports, we play it everyday and never needed another!! xD It's getting old now, though.



Shirma_Akayaku said:
