The eagerly awaited Xbox version of Counter-Strike is all set to hit New Zealand retail this coming Friday to coincide with the release of Xbox Live.

To celebrate the launch Microsoft have kindly provided us with 5 copies of the game to giveaway! Not only that, but one lucky person will also walk off with a very stylie limited edition Counter-Strike Xbox Jacket - the only one in existence folks! Oh, did we mention that all 5 winners will receive the game this Thursday, the day before the game becomes officially available?!

To be in the draw to win (and to be playing Counter-Strike before all your mates!), you simply need to tell us 2 features that the Xbox version of Counter-Strike has that the original PC version doesn't. Email answers along with contact details (must include full name and address) to [email protected] with "CS Comp" in the subject header.

    * Competition closes 2pm, Wednesday December 3rd.
    * Competition is open to New Zealand residents only.
    * Only one entry per person is allowed.
    * Winners will be contacted via email Wednesday afternoon.

Huge thumbs up to Microsoft for the great competition!
