Here on Electricpig, we like nothing more than giving away a whole bunch of gadgets and games to you, dear readers. Why? Because free stuff. Everyone likes that. So with that in mind, we’ve got a great new competition for you today: we’ve got a brand new Xbox 360 to giveaway, along with a steering wheel and a copy of the brand new DiRT Showdown! Read on to find out how to enter.

To celebrate the release of DiRT Showdown on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on Friday 25 May, we’ve teamed up with Codemasters to give away a copy of the game  along with a new Xbox 360 and a Madcatz Wireless Force-Feedback racing wheel to play it on. Two runners up will also win copies of the game on Xbox 360.

DiRT Showdown is the new arcade racing game from the team that brought you the award-winning DiRT series. Alongside breakneck racing thrills, you can pit your reflexes in a Demolition Derby and go wild in free-roaming, freestyle stunt parks.

    I should blag a copy of DiRT Showdown and an Xbox 360 because:
    My first name is Engel, my second name is Humperdink, my middle name is dirt cuz I sometimes tend to stink a bit,
    If I should blag this swag then I promise I will bath, cuz I’m overdue a soak I’m just a lazy kind of bloke who likes to play his games all day,
    but all my games are grey, so inject a bit of colour brother from another mother,
    And I promise I will smash it,to drive the car not crash it,
    Next time you see this face is on the leaderboard 1st place,
    so there you go, I spit my flow, I hope you folks enjoyed the show,
    I hope to hear from you to say I won,with love from me ,
    your number 1.

    I should blag a copy of DiRT Showdown and an Xbox 360 because when I was about 5, my two older brothers were given a ZX Spectrum 48K for Christmas and I got a Sindy House. Don’t get me wrong: I loved that Sindy House and I’m proud of it, but I also loved the Spectrum, Daley Thompson’s Decathlon and those little rubber keys.

    I would sneak into their bedroom when they were out and play Jet Set Willy and Dynamite Dan with one eye on the window – in case they reappeared on their bikes – so I could switch off and slip out without getting caught.

    Over 25 years later, I still play against one of my brothers and I usually get beaten by him. This is because he owns the Xbox so he gets the practice in – FACT. He knows, as I do, that if I had the same amount of practice, I would kick his behind. So, electricpig, in the name of all the little sisters out there, make me your winner!

    I should blag a copy of DiRT Showdown and an Xbox 360
    because….last week I had the pleasure (?) of being driven by my 85 year
    other mother and I spent the whole journey screaming ‘watch that car’
    and ‘which lane are you in???’ I obviously need to gain experience of
    driving at speed and aiming directly for anything that moves.

    I should blag a copy of DiRT Showdown and an Xbox 360 because…. its a little known fact that mummy’s are kept away from any consoles, not because they are ‘sad’ and ‘past it’ but because once you become a mum you are instantly adorned with finger reflexes of a wrestling cheetah! There is a conspiracy to keep mums from any kind of gaming device to stop kids feeling second best, this is unacceptable! These kids need to learn that mums are gaming champs! Im happy to lead the revolution . . . if you’ll provide the console :D

    “I should blag a copy of DiRT Showdown and an Xbox 360 because I never ever see my son because he is playing his own Xbox.

    I should blag a copy of DIRT showdown, Because my partner insists that I should learn to drive, but I fear I am likely to cause accidents!!! So by playing Dirt I could show him how much of a dirty drive I can be, it will convince one of us to make the decision of wether or not I should learn for real!!! Hell it might just convince me to enjoy driving!!!
