They are usually given to reviewers and people who test the games, Sony sometimes advertses jobs as their game testers where they will send the promo's out to you

I know of one computer game shop that gets them in but it's often few and far between

More likely as an entertainment distributer, I used to get tons of promo stuff, a lot of it gets passed onto a guy based in Nottingham who deals in remainder stock, he sells it to car booters, market traders, pound shops etc :thumbsup:

Would be nice if I got them.

You sometimes get given them at events by publishers. EA were giving away copies of Def Jam Icon at Download festival.

I used to get the odd one from game reps when I worked in a computer store, but they were few and far between - most were for store competitions, and things, and we only got them if the reps were feeling particularly generous (mostly the Ubisoft guy, Ray :thumbsup:)

Got a couple from events like our conference aswell...

Comet B2B dept were selling them to staff for charity when i worked there

My friend worked in hmv for work experience and got given Just Cause (just came out) and some other dvd's and cd's for free :thumbsup:

Likewise my friend worked as the games manager for a large retailer and got invited to games conferences and launch events where he would get given promo copys, at the time he never had a xBox so he used to pass them to me, great stuff :)
