Update: We've selected a winner! Congratulations to Joshua Bowles of Tempe, AZ.

Let's face it. If there's anything you've ever needed to hear on the Xbox 360, it's the sound of zombies creeping up behind you. If you haven't played Left 4 Dead, then you don't know about all of the creepy sounds: the gurgling of a Boomer, the wail of a Witch and the raspy sounds of a Smoker. It's all part of the game, and paying close attention can keep you alive. For awhile.

If you're tired of your roommates, significant other or neighbors telling you to dial down the sound on your gaming rig, then you definitely need some high-quality cans that will keep you blissfully unaware while the rest of the world goes about its business. With that in mind, you need to get in on our Joyswag Holidaze Left 4 Dead and Turtle Beach Ear Force X3 wireless gaming headphones (with microphone!) giveaway:
  • Leave a comment telling us why you need a pair of gaming headphones to help you kill zombies
  • You must be 18 years or older and a resident of the US or Canada (excluding Quebec)
  • Limit 1 entry per person per calendar day
  • This entry period ends at 12:00pm ET on Wednesday, December 17th. We'll randomly select 1 winner at that time to receive one copy of Left 4 Dead for Xbox 360 (ARV: $59.99), one pair of Turtle Beach X3 Headphones for the Xbox 360 (ARV: $119.99)
