Buy Now-Cheap Hydrophobia, Win a Tropical Vacation


Looky here folks. As it turns out, the Xbox Live ‘Deal of the Week’ has a water theme for a very specific reason. The week-long price cut on Hydrophobia is actually tied in with a contest.

Between today and February 6th, every Xbox Live user (Gold or Silver) from the US and UK who purchases the price-slashed Hydrophobia will automatically be entered to win a tropical vacation. If the Grand Prize winner lives in the US, he or she will win a tropical cruise for two. If the winner hails from the UK, though, he or she will be awarded a beach vacation for two instead. I guess people from the UK don’t like boats.

4000 Microsoft Points are also up for grabs for five runners-up to win. And if you’ve already purchased the game before this promotion or don’t have even 400 MS Points to spare, fear not. Mail-in entries are also an option should you just want to throw your name in the hat. Official sweepstakes rules are posted here.
