Last year, Microsoft and PepsiCo teamed up to giveaway an Xbox 360 system every ten minutes for nine weeks straight. Nintendo and Sony have not been as extravagant in handing out free consoles, but both this season's new systems can be snagged for free from a variety of third-party giveaways and sweepstakes.
Some high-profile giveaway offers from the likes of GameFly and Comedy Central are already finished, but there are dozens more still active and waiting to be won. Come across any contests we missed? Leave a comment with the details and we'll add it to the big list below.
