WIN! Blur On PS3 And Xbox 360

Blur, the new combat racing game from Project Gotham devs Bizarre Creations, wants you to race like a big boy. Activision wants you to win a copy. Here's how.

Thanks to Activision we have TEN copies of Blur up for grabs. That's FIVE on Xbox 360 and FIVE on PlayStation 3. We'll be giving them away all this week, one of each per day until Friday.

Blur is like Mario Kart. But with real cars. As this ad so amusingly demonstrates.

We want to know what weapon or power-up you would use to win a race in Blur. Name and describe your weapon or power-up in the comments below to go into the draw. The wittiest, cleverest and most creative entries will win.

Today's draw closes at midnight tonight and the winner will be announced at 11am tomorrow when a new draw will open. No multiple entries please. However, you may try again tomorrow with a new entry.

Oh, and please state which format you prefer!

And congratulations to Wednesday's winners: James Chen and Pomp Fridge.

[Terms and Conditions]


    The Delorean. Upon activating The Delorean, you've got 10 seconds to get your vehicle up to 88 MPH. You can then rewind the race up to 30 seconds, to a time when you may have been in a better position, or you can go 'into the future', where you lose control of the vehicle for 10 seconds and are controlled by a near perfect AI, gain a speed boost, and are immune to all opposition effects and weapons.


      I would start out with super nitro and get a little ahead of the pack, I would drop mines on the field to slow down my competition, I would trurn corners carfully so I don't crash,And am way ahead of others. I would end with lighting as I finish the race to annoy other racers. Xbox 360 :]

    Small Hadron Collider (SHC)
    Fires charged particles that on impact create transient micro black holes. Opponents within a hole's gravitional field are swallowed. Happy ending ensues.

    The Invertomatic... an energy ray which knocks vehicles off course on impact and temporarily inverts vehicle and camera control to disorient opponents and test their ability to adapt to the new controls.

    xbox 360

    The paparazzi cannon
    launches a pap pod around the car flashing photos disabling the driver abilty and the only way to rid of the pap is to side swipe anyone near you or if a player crashes into you.

    I would love to post what system but I forgot so I might post in sec to tell you I forgot to post just so it looks like a double post and I get your attention


    I wouldn't use any...Just get them driving on the Pacific Highway at a decent speed and they'll surely crash.

      Ohh and XBox is a preference but I have a PS3 too.

    The Lost writer redac ray, it causes the other racers to shift to another reality in which they never entered the race in the 1st place or are in limbo, whatever or something.

    oh and 360

    This would have to be a 360 only weapon. Basically if your are coming last, you can now pick the time that your xbox overheats and the red ring appears. Making the game forfeit and preventing your from losing.

    Oh yes and it is a 360 version of the game I would like.

    My weapon of choice would be M.Bay Cameron special.
    Upon activation of this powerup Michael Bay and James Cameron show up claiming they've made the greatest films ever. Your opponents all briefly turn in to a mass of easily impressed drooling morons and are so mesmerized by whatever THREEE DEEE explosion and pretty cgi filled garbage the two directors are showing off they ignore the fact you just zoomed in to first place and took the lead.


    The Whining Kid power up.

    Grab this powerup, and all your oponents will each get an annoying kid in the back seat of their car.
    There, he will hog your rear view mirror space, unable to view other racers, as he incessantly annoys the hell out of you in one whining, continous loop.
    Expect annoying gems like "The wheels on the blurred car go round and round...round and round...", Nonsensical games of "Eye Spy" and my favourite, "Are we there yet, are we there yet, are we there yet" assaulting your earlobes all the way through the race.

    On the PS3 thanks,but would gladly accept the 360 Ver. if lucky enough to win.

    The Fish and Chip Gun.

    Lobs a freshly cooked fish and chip meal (of butter fish and minimum chips of course!) on to the bonnet of a target car.

    The target’s car is then inundated by a flock of ravenous seagulls, obscuring the entire view of the player and assaulting their speakers with constant and unrelenting squawks. The gulls will not leave the car (and the player’s view) until the fish and chip package has been successfully lobbed on to another opponent. All the seagulls will then leave and assault the next car; however they leave a partially obscured view from the bird droppings, lasting for at least the next two laps.

    Take care, once the seagulls are unleased in a race they can only be passed on and will never go away!


    The WG-ALB, or otherwise known as the "WildGoose Approval-Lag Bomb"

    After deployment of this power-up on an unsuspecting victim, the WG-ALB will take effect like a ninja in the night; it will appear as though nothing has happened, and your opponent will carry on racing to the chequered flag... or so they think...

    Upon reaching the finish line, the victim of the WG-ALB will seemingly freeze in their tracks. Mechanical fault? Black magic? Tarzan's Grip? It won't be until they see the "Your race win is awaiting moderation." comment that they'll realise what has happened.

    Then, assuming the infamous "Wildgoose" is on your side, your opponent will be left helpless for countless minutes whilst awaiting approval, leaving you free to cruise through to the chequered flag and onto victory!


    The AGB.

    When used, the targeted driver immediately starts to feel the need to take an "After Grog Bog", aka AGB.
    Drivers affected by the AGB will be forced to stop on the side of the road. There is a 10% chance that it was a phantom AGB, however for the other 90% the drivers bowels let loose the bog from hell.
    Once the demon has been released it acts as an additional hazard to other drivers, causing cars that hit it to lose traction and visibility.


    Sebulba's hydrospanner. Worked wonders in the Boonta Eve Classic...

    Given that I don't own a PS3, an Xbox 360 copy would be awesome if I'm deemed worthy.

    I’m going to go with my all-time favourite weapon: the Concrete Donkey from the Worms series. There’s nothing quite as satisfying or humourous as dropping a multi-tonne donkey statue on your opponents out of a clear sky.

    Well… except maybe a giant cartoon foot!


    The magnetic Hobo who latches onto your Car and attempts to clean your windshield with his Grimy Rag, and makes you so mad you crash your Car to get him Off


    1. 'Red Rim of Death'... Dead on arrival.
    2. 'Rick Roller'... Pilfered.
    3. 'The Bollinator'... Stillborn.
    4. 'Distractor'... Oh look, a spoon.

    ... how about the 'Large Cash Bribe' it pays off the "judges" with a sizable brown bag filled with unmarked bills* dropped off at an inconspicuous point of their choosing, thus invalidating the quality of their "racing" up till this point.

    *May only be the spare change I happen to have on me at the moment.

    My weapon is called overcharge

    Once you shoot someone with an overcharge, all control over their car is lost, their steering becomes locked and their car is given a large speed boost. The overcharge effect lasts for about 10 seconds, but you need to be skillful when using it, like don't use it when your enemy is on a long straight of road.

    This weapon can also be used in team based matches on your own teammates and only lasts 5 seconds if you hit a teammate.

    The best time to use it is when there are no edges or around tight corners.

    The overcharge would add a new level of skill to Blur, rather than people just spamming away with their weapons.

    PS. 360 if wins

    Sanrio Super Spray!

    Once activated, Hello Kitty heads would begin spraying out your exhaust pipe forcing drivers behind to avert their gaze to avoid cuteness overload, thus crashing in to walls due to the lack of concentration! MWOOHAHAHAHAHHAH!

      ps3 today! but as usual, either will do me just fine!

    The Hamiltronic Cannon

    Hitting an opponent with this baby will cause them to 'intentionally lose control of their motor vehicle'. The effects of this will be twofold. Firstly, the loss of control will result in wheelspin and a 'fishtailing' effect, not dissimilar to a burnout. This will cause the opponents car to slow down. Secondly, it will cause the Victorian traffic police to pursue the opponent, who will be required to evade to coppers, or risk being pulled over, charged and slapped with a small fine.

    The “Visa Versa”

    All opponent cars within a reasonable distance of your car instantly have their controls inverted: So left and right steering is reversed (including which stick is active on the controller), acceleration and breaking pedals are also switched.

    Effect lasts 15 seconds if not countered; counters include:

    Avoiding contact with walls or opposition vehicles for the first 10 seconds of the effect, or (for those with Move or Natal) having the foresight to physically turn the controller around and drive for 5 seconds.

    The “Visa Versa” de-buff can stack up to three times on a competitors vehicle before needing to be triggered. When activated with two instances the duration is extended to 20 seconds and affects a wider radius. Three instances of the “Visa Versa” de-buff add an additional effect to the “Dual Visa Versa”. The penultimate “Visa Versa” adds to the disorientation by spawning Justin Beibier (pronounced bur-eb-er-beer) as the co-pilot of each effected vehicle; who then belts out his greatest hits ... *He’s silent, but blinks sometimes*

    Preference: X360 but own both consoles.

    The FLintstone

    This powerup was designed for use with the wii version of the game that tragicaly will never see the light of day. It involves use of the balance board and when activivated forces the opponents in other vechiles to run their feet up and down wildly on the board to maintain speed in the race.

    The neuralyzer which makes everyone instantly forget what they are there for, adding confusion to the event once fired, like so

    * zap *

    Wait, what's this thing for? Who are you people? What's a Kotaku?


    I would use a BP oil tanker and make sure it can not be fixed so when ever im in the lead, I'll just open it up and make sure my opponents cant pass it because they will just slide all over the road.

    Xbox 360 Please

    The Chickenator

    No, it's not a weapon that transforms your opponents car into a Giant Chicken - although that would be cool.

    The Chickenator instead suspends the race briefly, transporting you and your targeted opponent onto a small mini track, facing each other, where you then both accelerate towards one another in a game of 'chicken'.

    If your opponent swerves to avoid crashing, when the race resumes, you will be placed in first position and he will be placed some distance behind you.

    If you swerve to avoid crashing, when the race resumes, your opponent will be placed in first position and you will be placed some distance behind him.

    If you both crash, when the race resumes, your opponent will be placed in last position and you will be placed second last.

    So, do to swerve or not to swerve... that is the question.


    Hmm... maybe the Giant Chicken idea would be better.
