DT’s ‘Better Than Socks’ Holiday Giveaway: Hitman Absolution Professional Edition for PS3

Hitman absolution ps3 holiday giveawayContinuing our march through the holidays, we continue our seasonal giveaways with a shift towards gaming. For the fourth day of our “Better Than Socks” giveaway, we are happy to offer a copy of Hitman Absolution Professional Edition for the PlayStation 3 to one lucky winner.

At first glance you’d be forgiven for not seeing the connection between this game and Christmas, but there are several similarities. Although Agent 47 isn’t known for his mirth and jolly nature, both he and Santa are well known for checking their lists. Granted, they exist on opposite spectrums, with Santa leaning towards the “nice” and Agent 47 firmly focused on the “naughty.” And the similarities don’t end there. Both sneak around without being seen, and Agent 47 has probably made his way down a few chimneys in his time. Plus while Santa tends to leave presents, 47 leaves other things like explosives and poisoned sushi. Two peas in a pod.

Hitman Absolution is a game worth your time, or the time of the gamer in your life that could end up with this under the tree. The Professional Edition that we are offering contains the PS3 game, a book featuring art from the game, and a DVD highlighting the making of the game.

For your chance to win, all you have to do is post a comment below and tell us what your favorite game of the years was. If you aren’t a gamer and don’t have a favorite title, just let us know and we’ll consider you entered. The contest runs from now until Monday.

If gaming isn’t your thing, then keep checking back with us every day from now until Christmas, as the Better Than Socks Holiday Giveaways continue.

Congratulations to our winner, Matt Blackwell!
