See how Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system make using a PC easier, safer and more entertaining, and you could win an experience money can’t buy!

To celebrate the launch of their new operating system, Microsoft is offering one lucky winner the opportunity to be digitally made-over and inserted (virtually of course) into a blockbuster game! Simply watch the Vista gaming demo and you could appear in the latest Remedy blockbuster, Alan Wake, a psychological action thriller with an intense cinematic look. Let the games begin with a trip to Finland to be digitally mastered into Alan Wake’s world, then jet off to Tokyo to the 2008 Tokyo Games Show to be on the scene and on the screen!

lol, no problem for me to watch the videos! My problem, though, is that I don't live in the UK, so I can't enter.

I couldn't find the contest rules initially, and I actually watched videos, filled out an entry form, and got an "entry recieved" webpage. Later I found the Terms and Conditions page, and this was rule number 1:

1. All Experience prize draws are open to residents of the UK, Channel, Islands and the Isle of Man aged 18 or over, excluding employees and their immediate families of Microsoft, its agencies, organisations or companies supplying prizes or anyone else professionally connected with this promotion.

Pretty sure Chicago doesn't fit into any of those regions, lol.
