Did you ever want to own a videogame-themed car? No, don't mean a street legal Warthog or MAKO, or even the weaponized car from Spyhunter; I mean a normal car, but covered in cheesy decals or a videogame-themed paint job. You wouldn't, would you?
Well too bad, because Gamestop is going to give one away anyway. Beginning today and ending at 11:59 PMCT on April 30, US gamers (it would have to only be open to US gamers) can enter to win a Prototype 2
- themed 1SS Camaro and one of only 200 limited edition Sgt. James Heller leather jackets. Visit www.poweruprewards.com/epicreward
hits store shelves on April 24 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Windows PC. For full details, follow the jump.
And finally, I apologize to all the Camaro drivers out there. British Top Gear has, either justly or unjustly, biased me forever against cars made in my own country.
