The guys over at Sony Computer Entertainment Europe have revealed that they will host a very exclusive event which will allow several people to have access to the handheld, the launch apps and the launch games. Being held at a secret location in London, the winners will be allowed to take a friend with them to enjoy the features of the handheld. Flights and accommodation will be paid by SCEE. There is a catch though: signing up to Inside Vita is a requirement to enter this competition.
Of course, there are terms and conditions that have to be met. First, the entrants must be over 18 years of age. This makes sense, as some games may contain content only suitable for those over 18. The second requirement is that one must be residing in the following countries: Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, UAE and the United Kingdom.
Anyone notice that one particular country is missing from that list? That’s right, residents in Australia are NOT permitted to enter the competition, yet residents of New Zealand are. Very surprising, considering that there is a SCE Australia and New Zealand office. It could be that it is difficult to run a national competition or there is one in the works via the local offices. I hope we see something like this for Oz residents nonetheless, as they should not miss out on an opportunity like this one.
