Good At Castle Crashers? You Could Win a Gold Xbox
Written By
View author's profile

To celebrate The Behemoth hitting the two million player mark with its cartoon scrolling XBLA hack and slasher, Castle Crashers, there's a proper gold Xbox up for grabs. In what's been dubbed the 'Tournament of Champions', The Behemoth is offering one lucky winner a genuine 24-karat gold-plated Xbox 360, with a Castle Crasher's knight etched into the top of the hard drive. Stylish.

All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win the golden prize is "be in the top 100 Weekly Ranked Arena players on the Castle Crashers leaderboards at noon (PST) on January 28th." Players will be given an entire week to battle for a spot, after which the top 100 will then do battle in 1-on-1 Arena matches in an elimination tournament on Saturday, February 5th until a winner is declared.

Second prize is a Castle Crashers-themed Xbox 360 Elite while the third place player will earn 250 'squishy chickens' (pictured) to dab their wounds with. The top 24 will also get a special bonus, while the whole top 100 will win a nice little prize too. For more details, visit The Behemoth Blog. To the victor, the spoils! Good luck to all participating.

What about all of the glitched/hacked characters at the top of the leaderboards? Also, is this competion available in uerope as well, as alot of these types of things are just in the US?

Here's an idea.....let's take a system that has a major habit of overheating and ruining itself, and cover it in a metal which has very poor thermal conductivity. Greatest freakin' idea ever! FAIL

This isnt the first gold xbox thats been given away. Last year or the year before, they were offering the same prize (and that was before the new xbox's were out you cheap bastards) for anyone who could write an amazing essay as to why you should receive it or why you deserved it. This however was only available in Hong Kong I believe and this one is not. Would be a nice prize but I suck at CC :(

Id like one of the squishy chickens! well thats why there is eBay! Anyway a gold xbox is pointless. Itll just RROD and be wasted. Im already on my Third Xbox360. First RROD'd had that fixed then it just died completely, second worked then wouldnt read any discs and decided to take 20mins to turn off and my newest is fine 'cept the thing keeps thinking its on its side all the time but works gereat :)

this is a kool idea and im all for people giving stuff away to gamers but man my xbox is plastic and it runs hot enough as it is.I see this getting sold by the winner but truthfully I would love to win this just to keep on the shelf and t ell my grand kids about.Id be too damn scared to ever use it cause theres no way it would survive many of my 15 + hour gaming sessions.The one i have has served me well.its an arcade edition with a 60gig HD i bought for it.its only had to be sent in once and t hat was like 2 or 3 years ago.

@47 I'm right there with ya. I totally remember the sweetness of the gold Zelda cart.

Now if only I was any good at Castle Crashers. But what worries me more than a gold Xbox overheating is where the hell is Behemoth's next release?! They've been working on a 3rd game that I've heard nothing about since the announcement trailer and I'm still waiting for a Castle Crashers 2! Why are we still holding tournaments for a game that was amazing, but old enough now that most gamers have beaten it ages ago and moved on?
