WIN! Demon's Souls PS3 Black Phantom Edition

There are few games as brutally demanding as From Software's Demon's Souls, the PlayStation 3 exclusive RPG out this week. Which is why you'll really earn it if you manage to win a copy.

Thanks to Namco Bandai, we have FIVE copies of Demon's Souls on PS3 to give away this week. All five are Black Phantom Editions, too, containing the game, the CD soundtrack, a hardcover artbook and a strategy guide. We're giving away one each day this week. And this being Friday is your final chance to win.

So how do you win?

Demon's Souls takes an unusual approach to online play. You can use stones to jump into the games of other players to both help them and harass them. Players can also leave messages - advice, warnings, poetry and gibberish - etched into the game world for others to read.

We want you to write a message for your fellow competition entrants to read. Leave your message in the comments below by midnight tonight to be in the running to win. The wittiest and most creative messages will win.

As usual, no multiple entries please. And remember, this is your last chance to win!

And Thursday's winner is... thistler, who tickled my punny bone with:

"Wanted: Brave cobbler for shoeing Demon's Soles."

Shouts out to Clintoon, Marty Luther, Loleon and Thomas Lee. So close!

    I like Demon's Souls because of its "grittiness"; which is like enjoying authentic Central American water for the dysentery.

    And don't you hack, hack, hack, hack.
