Posted on April 9 2012, 11:40am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games


*** UPDATE: Today is the last day to enter the New York to São Paulo Sweepstakes if you haven't already! Don't miss out on your chance to win a trip to New York City and São Paulo, Brazil, play Max Payne 3 early, attend the Sonar Festival and much more! Enter at either the Social Club or our page on Facebook.

In honor of the highly-anticipated return of Max Payne in this May's Max Payne 3 we’ll be giving one lucky Grand Prize winner the once in a lifetime chance to follow Max’s trail with the New York to São Paulo Sweepstakes - an action packed trip from the gritty streets of NYC to vibrant São Paulo, Brazil – in an experience which includes:

You and a guest will start off in Max Payne's hometown of New York City, where you’ll spend two nights and three days at the Thompson LES Hotel in Downtown Manhattan - a worldwide epicenter of shopping, dining, and art galleries. But more importantly, you will get to go hands on with an extended pre-release gaming session of Max Payne 3 a week before it hits shelves on May 15th. 

From there, you’ll fly nearly 5,000 miles south and spend four nights and five days in São Paulo, Brazil where Max Payne 3 takes place. You'll spend four nights and five days at the chic Hotel Unique, one of the city's hottest hotels where developers stayed during the making of the game. You'll also get VIP passes to spend two days rocking that weekend at SONAR SÃO PAULO, the international festival of advanced music and art headlined by artists like Bjork, Justice, and Max Payne 3 soundtrack star Emicida. Visit www.sonarsaopaulo.com.br for the complete line-up, and all of the details about this two day event.

A limited-edition, specially customized Max Payne 3 250GB Xbox 360®, with a one year Xbox LIVE subscription and 1,600 Microsoft points, courtesy of Xbox.

In total, one Grand Prize winner and ten runners-up will be selected from all entrants. Runners-up receive a Max Payne 3 prize pack, along with a one year Xbox live subscription and 1,600 Microsoft points, courtesy of Xbox.

                    I would like to thank you for such amazing games and prize giveaways. I have always liked your games the most. I remember when I first played GTA on Playstation 1 and couldn't stop playing it. Then the games have got better and better. And now Max Payne 3, looks out of this world. I look forward to playing it.

                    Thank you Rockstar
