4 Tips on How to Score a Free PS3

Who wouldn’t want to score a free PS3? The Sony PlayStation 3 is, with little argument, this generation’s most powerful video gaming console. Many say that it is the most functional as well, as it doubles as a cost-friendly blu-ray disc player that can play blu-ray movies aside from games.

Unfortunately, these mean that the Sony PlayStation 3 is also the most expensive gaming console in the market today. Hence, the prospect of scoring a free one becomes even more attractive.

How can you get a free PS3? Here are 4 methods you can try.

1. Join online contests. Many websites sponsor contests that give away PS3 units, among other prizes. Most of these websites secure their PS3 prizes from Sony itself. Every quarter, Sony releases review copies of the console to highly visited gaming-related websites. Some of these websites use these review copies to generate more visitors for their pages, i.e. sponsoring contests that promise the PS3 as the main prize. Finding such contests is quite easy with the help of a search engine

2. Join offline contests. Sony also provides review copies of the console to print publications. Gaming magazines, for instance, hold monthly contests that reward the winner with a free PS3, among other possible prizes. You may find some luck in joining any of these offline contests.

3. Try affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing requires you to promote the products of a particular merchant using a specially generated affiliate link that will track referrals and credit them to your account. Every time a person you referred purchases something from the merchant, you will earn a stated commission. This commission can be in the form of cash, or in the form of store credits. Regardless of what form the commission will take, you can use the same to get a PS3. Affiliate marketing doesn’t require a lot of work, just the proper implementation of correct internet marketing strategies.

4. Try to secure a review copy. Earlier, we have discussed how online and offline publications manage to secure review copies of the console by virtue of the large volume of traffic they generate or the huge readership they can boast of. You can secure your own free review PS3 if you have your own gaming-related website or if you publish your own newspaper or magazine. The challenge, for a website, is to garner at least 10,000 unique visitors per day. The challenge, for print publications, is to garner an average of 10,000 readers per published issue. You will need to break through these numbers to win Sony’s attention so that the company can send over a free PS3 which you can use for “review purposes.”
