TSA E3 Bingo 2013 Results

A full house of results.

2013’s E3 was arguably the biggest yet, and with new consoles and fantastic games on show it was hardly surprising. This year saw over 160 of you enter TSA’s E3 Bingo Competition, which was fantastic to see too. The conferences had quite a few surprises, and a lot of the games we thought would be demoed at the publisher conferences were actually shown off during the console maker’s shows. This really messed up some people’s choices (especially mine!), while it allowed other people to get ahead.

Just in case you’ve forgotten, for this years’ Bingo we introduced a new points system in an attempt to mix things up a bit and reward those of you that chose the riskier options (providing those options were right!). The winner would be the one would had the most points, not necessarily the most correct choices. That winner would then be able to choose a game of his or her choice, however it has to be the UK standard edition, so unfortunately they won’t be driving away in the £125,000 BAC Mono Supercar from Grid 2’s Special Edition! We also said we would be picking another winner at random.

There were 88 options for you to choose from, so let’s take a look at what came up, and remember that their points are shown in brackets:

Sony’s E3 Conference:
2. PlayStation 4 released US, Japan and UK in 2013 [1]
3. PlayStation 4 pricing announced [1]
11. No new LittleBigPlanet game is announced [1]

33. Xbox One pricing announced [1]
41. New Halo game announced [2]
42. The entire Microsoft conferences comes and goes without any dancing or singing on stage. Game footage is allowed but nothing in person. [2]
43. Footage for Crytek’s Ryse (trailer or gameplay is shown) [2]
50. Someone from Microsoft says “Indie developers” more than 3 times during their presser [3]

EA’s E3 Conference:
63. New FIFA 14 footage (trailer or gameplay is shown) [1]
64. New Madden 14 (aka Madden NFL 25) footage (trailer or gameplay is shown) [1]

So, congratulations are in order to FriendlyFiend, who won with a grand total of 13 points! It was actually pretty close, especially at the top, where every point mattered.

We also mentioned that we’d be picking another winner at random, and that winner is RyanMartin1991! Both winners have been contacted and we’ll arrange to get your games to you as soon as we can! If you want to see the full table of results then you can find them over on page 2.

And that wraps up TSA’s E3 Bingo for 2013, hopefully you’ll all be joining us again next year, only another 11 months to go!

Thanks to Community Team member gazzagb for collating and presenting the results.

    AG2297 (Adam) and I were never really in the running as we’d entered the competition too late. So late, in fact, that we should’ve been top as we knew some of the things that had happened and we were still shit! Hahaha.

    Congrats to the genuine winners. :-)

    I thought I’d picked low scoring stuff that was really safe. Bugger.

    The Xbox isn’t coming out this year in Japan, and Batman wasn’t anywhere (unless we’re counting the tiny snippet in the Sony montage?) – not that I’m sour or anything ;)

      Pretty sure Batman was shown for the Vita, had a few minutes on it.

      We had to discuss how strict we would be and 32 was one of those questions where we decided to let it slide and allow people that extra point with the whole “our decision is final” disclaimer being put to good use.
