Joyswag regift giveaway: PS3 Wireless Keypad and AC Adaptor

[We've got our winner! Larry, aka Freak Mojo, wins the PS3 treats! Thanks for entering, everyone!]

Just like you, we get all sorts of gifts around the holidays here at Joystiq HQ. Probably unlike you, we don't keep any of them (even the good ones!). With that in mind, we've got five days of regift giveaways planned, where you get some free stuff (and we get some of our HQ real estate back).

Today, we're offering up the PlayStation 3 Wireless Keypad (our two word review: pretty terrible) and, since you need to charge the thing separately from your controller (no, really!) we're throwing in the PlayStation 3 AC Adaptor. We're still waiting for Sony to implement some sort of low-power charging solution in a future PS3 revision – until then, we'll keep charging everything off the 360.

Here's how you win:
  • Leave a comment expressing your holiday cheer ... in txtspk.
  • You must be 18 years or older and a resident of the US or Canada (excluding Quebec)
  • Limit 1 entry per person
  • This entry period ends at 8:30 pm ET on Wednesday, December 31st. We'll randomly select 1 winner at that time to receive the PlayStation 3 Wireless Keypad (ARV: $50) and the PlayStation 3 AC Adaptor (ARV: $25.00). Please check your e-mail!

In those roles, he's served as an IGF judge, an E3 judge, a VGA judge, and a podcast host; interviewed many of the industry's familiar faces, from Bill Gates to John Carmack; spoken at plenty of places from MIT to GDC; and appeared in or on CNN, The New York Times, BBC, all while reporting on the video game industry for the world's top gaming news and information site.
