Surprised no one has posted this yet. Taco Bell and Sony are giving away a PS Vita every 15 minutes from January 26th through March 11th. My math tells me that's something like 4320 4416 giveaways.

VIA http://blog.us.plays...o-bell-ps-vita/

This sounds very similar to the Burger King Xbox Kinect giveaway about a year ago, so we can only hope there's some kind of free code method like that one had.

Here is the description from the Playstation blog on the 3 ways to win:

UNLOCK THE BOX: Beginning January 26th, Taco Bell’s specially marked $5 Buck Box – which includes a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, Crunchy Taco, Burrito Supreme and medium fountain drink – will also provide a code that can be entered online for an instant chance to “unlock” and win a PS Vita.

BATTLE: Download Taco Bell’s new mobile app to check out the exclusively designed Reality Fighters Dojo game where you can “battle” your friends to win a PS Vita.

BOAST: Taco Bell’s online contest will encourage you to submit a photo or video “boasting” about what you’re willing to do for a PS Vita. Submissions will then go into an online gallery where you and your peers can vote for the winners – it could be you!

I'll convert this over to wiki mode if we start finding free codes.


Contest is now live:

Main Site: http://unlock.tacobell.com/

iOS App - http://itunes.apple.....7361?ls=1&mt=8

Android App - https://market.andro....tacobell&hl=en


------------------------------------

There doesn't appear to be any freebies (unless you mail for free codes in March) or any ways to enhance your odds besides collecting votes on Boast pictures.

Update: Since this turned into primarily a referral thread, I've wikified it so you guys can duke it out. Have at it.

Just saw this on another forum. I'm probably gonna go ahead and just buy my Vita since the prize games aren't the ones that interest me most, and I want a bigger memory stick than 4GB. I do like Taco Bell though, so I may give it one or two tries anyway.

Just read this and was hoping to see a post on it here.

And I'm hoping even more that its something I could play daily without buying more than 2 or 3 of those boxes. I'm not big on taco bell.

If its anything like Subways contests, I'll be good :-)

Thanks OP, this gives me yet another excuse to go to Taco Bell.

Although, I wish it wasn't restricted to this 5 Buck Box, since I prefer some of their other menu items.

Not worth it. I'd rather pay double the price for a Vita than subject myself to that torture.

Nice! I love Taco Bell and this $5 box thing is a pretty great deal. I doubt I'd go more than twice though.

Use Ebates for tons of cashback and coupons and your favorite stores. Very easy to use and has great savings on video games, clothes, anything you can want! Let em know I sent ya!

That actually wasn't my error... I counted the January portion as 5 days for some reason.

Well taco bell usually makes me sick to my stomach but I'll subject myself to that torture for a chance at a vita. Anyway I figured there wasnt a thread since the 1/26 is a long ways away.

Never tried the box and the giveaway sounds decent. (people are less able to cheat)
Really didnt like the Burger king giveaway as literally the same people would spam codes, create multiple accounts and win every single console so people that actually went to burger king were the biggest losers.

What interested me about that PS blog post was one of the free games is LBP Vita which hasn't had a release date announced yet to my knowledge.

I'll just be honing my skills with the app. I've managed to reach the top 1% on some iPhone games so I may have a chance to win.

This is perfect. Taco Bell is my #1 choice when it comes to authentic Mexican cuisine.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

A bunch of us were. That's why I'm hoping this works out similar with some free codes or something.

The BK contest did not include Canada and this will not include Canada either. Unfortunately for you folks up north, licensing issues tend to make it difficult to extend contests/sweepstakes beyond our borders.


Also, the "3 ways to win" is a bit misleading. As all should know by now, these types of promotions have to include a way to participate without purchasing a product. So, if you're like me and can't stand the thought of paying a ridiculous amount of money for their disgusting food, all you have to do is send in SASE's or text messages and they'll send you codes.

Dude, you may not like their food, but $5 is a pretty good deal for what you're getting. Especially at a fast food joint that does a good job at filling you up.
