    Thanks for the link Ming. i find the prize of the EA contest ridiculously low for being EA, i mean. not even $1000 plus “all The Sims merchandise you can shake your stick at”?

    For shame..

    And then you got the other contest where the prize is totally awesome!!.

    A trip?, Publication, promotion and a 2000+ dlls laptop?. now that is the way of doing a contest. but then you got Nvidia + Microsoft as the sponsors.
