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!

[Terms and Conditions]


    L-l-look at you, Black Phantom. A p-p-pathetic spirit of Scraping Spear and Cling Ring, cursing and swearing as you leave blood stains in my corridors. H-h-how can you challenge a perfect, impossible game?

    Attention: Visit the Nexus for all your soul-diering needs. You can find us through an archstone or death. Come back soon.

    No, those weren't snickers bars you just passed. Watch out ahead.

    Look in the mirror behind you
    To see what's infront of you
    That is now behind you
    See your shadow
    The souls inside it are not yours
    We want them back

    The truth isnwe will both burden each other equally. Don't dwell on it too much.

    The next boss is about as hard as pronouncing 'Demon's Souls' so it's distinct from 'Demon Souls'.

    Try it.

    See, there is something harder than this game!

    Use the matrix of leadership to light your darkest hour!

    Here may be found the last words of Joseph of Boletaria. He who is valiant and pure of spirit may find the Demon's Souls in the castle of...BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZT!

    "Where the hell is Merlin, when I need him?!" - (Future king) Prince Arthur Pendragon

    (Nuff said!)

    Today I will win for sure
    I can almost smell the gore
    What a wonderful game,-
    with limbs to mame.
    I must win because I am poor.

    I come to prove a point. When we face monsters with violence they will respond in kind and our perpetual conflict will never cease. Ahh a horrifying demon, stay your blade, for the sake of the future of both our peoples we must make peace! Let us lay down our arms and embrace as friends

    Feeling bored this winter?
    Sick of games that allow you to pause, and save - right there in the very menu?
    Think it defeats the purpose?

    Then try Demon's Souls! This new product from From Software will agonise and torture you over the lack of saving!
    Never save when you need it!
    Always save when you lose horribly!

    Demon's Souls - Buy it today!

    And for much loved followers, try New & Improved Demon's Souls - Now with less save points!

    Demon's Souls is an incredibly difficult game. So much so that you will probably throw your controller at the TV in anger whilst playing it, thus breaking your TV and crushing your spirits. Consider that when entering this competition, maybe you should not enter? In fact, I am willing to take the risk for you.


    I don’t know what I’ve been told!
    Sun’s still shinin’ but I feel cold!
    As much as I want Aussie goals!
    Is to win a copy of Demon’s Souls!

    I was naked once and on the run!
    When a demon cut off my “unspoken”!…
    so this is my rifle, this is my gun!
    Both are for fighting, there is no pun!

    If one doth encounter a mousy flame-haired maiden, I implore you to be vigilant!
    This wench may travel with you, aid you on your quest, but she is hungry for power!

    In the dark of the night, while you rest your head, she will strike! When the sun rises you will be just another man, unfit to travel, slay or govern a country!

    Again, traveller, be vigilant!

    Wanted, Matt DEaMON's soul, will pay a premium if in good condition (i.e. before the making of Green Zone).
