WIN! Dante’s Inferno PS3/360 Game And Book

Last chance to get your gluttonous hands on a copy of Dante's Inferno. All you have to do is describe to us your Seven Deadly Sins of Gaming.

Dante’s Inferno is the new action adventure from EA and Visceral Games, the guys responsible for Dead Space and The Godfather. It’s based on the Divine Comedy, the classic work of 14th century Italian literature written by Dante Alighieri depicting the poet’s journey into the afterlife and through the nine circles of Hell.

You can find out from producer Jonathan Knight just how Visceral reimagined Dante’s Inferno, from poetry to playability, in our interview.

We’ve got eight copies of Dante’s Inferno – four Xbox, four PS3 – and eight copies of the book to give away this week. Today is the last day we’ll be offloading two prize packs: one with the 360 version and book, the other with the PS3 version and book.

To win, we want to know your picks for the Seven Deadly Sins of Gaming. Dante’s description of Purgatory contained his interpretation: pride, envy, wrath, sloth, avarice, gluttony and lust.

But what for you are the most objectionable vices in video gaming? Don’t just give us a list, explain your choices.

Leave your entry in the comments below along with your console preference (don’t say both). You must also include a valid email address or use Facebook Connect. Entries close at midnight EDT tonight and the final two daily winners will be announced over the weekend.

And the winners of Thursday's draw were kingcong and Chuloopa.

Good luck!

    Soothsayer(The Troll):
    He who hides behind a virtual blanket and pours forth every vile word against his opponent and teammate demoralizing his fellow gamer.

A subversive spirit so evil that Satan farteth it out, moulding it's own black encrusted turd into a child and implanting his spawn into an evil witch queen. Birthing on a full moon the disturbingly ugly dimpled faced child, naws it's way out of it's cacoon of a mother into a suit and stumbling into the CEO position of satan industries, Activision.
