The X360A Dead Space 3 50,400 MSP Achievement Gauntlet (UK Only) - Stage 2 -

It’s been a while since we’ve run one of our trademark achievement races, and thanks to EA in the UK, we don’t have to wait any longer.

To celebrate last Friday’s release of Dead Space 3 in the UK, we’re teaming up with EA to shower achievement hunters in the UK with prizes galore, well, the lucky few who win, of course.

In typical X360A fashion we like to go big when we bust out our achievement races and our Dead Space 3 gauntlet is no different, in fact, we have an astonishing 50,400 Microsoft Points to give away!

That’s 7 daily prizes of 2,100 Microsoft Points for everyone that unlocks the “Strapped” achievement for crafting a weapon. This bad boy:
  • Strapped (10G) – Craft a weapon.

Then, on February 24th, if you’ve unlocked the full 1,000Gs and signed up in the competition thread, then you can be in the chance with winning 35,700 Microsoft Points – that’s 178 pieces of armour for your horse in Oblivion!!

How does it work then? Well, once you’ve grabbed the ‘Strapped’ achievement, enter your gamertag in this thread. Then, everyday we’ll draw a new winner. Enter early and you’ll have 7 chances of winning!

If you manage to grab all 1,000Gs, then simply head on over to this thread and sign your gamertag to be in with another chance of winning, but this time, the big behemoth main prize of 35,700 Microsoft Points. It’s that simple: unlock achievements, sign your gamertag, and be in with a chance of winning. If you’re struggling with the list, then check out our Dead Space 3 achievement guide.

Good luck, folks, and before we leave you to chase after those elusive achievements, here’s the rules:

  • Winners: 8 (7 x 2,100 MSP; 1 x 35,700).
  • UK only, as Microsoft Points are region-restricted.
  • One entry per household.
  • Multiple entries will render all your entries void.
  • Stage 1: Unlock the “Strapped” achievement, sign up in this thread, and you’re in with a chance of winning one of the 7 daily prizes of 2,100 Microsoft Points.
  • Stage 1: From February 11th – February 17th, we will be giving one prize every day. To be in with a chance of winning for that particular day, you must have signed up by 23:59 GMT.
  • Stage 2: Unlock all the achievements, sign up in this thread, and you’re in with a chance of winning the main prize of 35,700 Microsoft Points.
  • Stage 2: The grand prize stage will close at 23:59 on March 3rd. All entries after this time will be deleted and rendered void.
  • Winners will be declared via random number generator after the competition has ended.
  • You must be 18 or older to enter, you know, because Dead Space 3 is an 18-rated game.
NOTE: Because of how long the list takes to 1k (and how many playthroughs it takes!), we've decided to extend the deadline by another week, you know, because it's takes long enough to get 1,000 in this game as it is and we don't want to punish those players who have a full-time job, families, etc. Good luck, you now have till March 3rd! Love Webb.

Loved the game, but the 4 playthroughs required for the 1000 was a little excessive.

Great game but to be honest I enjoyed the sprawl in Dead Space 2 more than Tau Volantis

"Retro Mode" is a tad disappointing as a hardcore reward. Enjoyed the game though

"I can feel it coming in the air tonight" That song was stuck in my head while playing it.

100% done. (I'm not sure if there's a different thread to post 100% in as I can't find a link anywhere).
