Win an Elgato Game Capture HD

This competition is now closed and the winner chosen. Thanks for taking part.

As part of our F1 2012 Championship, we’ve been able to bring together some great prizes from several sponsors. We’ll have more details on those coming out soon, but with our traditionally video heavy F1 Championships it makes much more sense to hold a giveaway featuring Elgato’s Game Capture HD before the actual racing. Logic prevails!

The Elgato Game Capture HD is a small external capture card, which handily lets you capture up to 1080p video over HDMI and Component to your PC/Mac and upload directly to Youtube. For their first foray into the market, they’ve really worked hard on making everything simple to use, with a single cable solution for the PS3 and the Flashback recording two of the stand out features for the device.

Roughly a month ago I posted a video review of the device on TSA which you can still catch here, where I take a deep look into all of the device’s capabilities. It’s really quite an impressive bit of kit with a bright future through further software updates, having fairly recently added 1080p recording, and with plenty more features in the works.

[drop]So it’s great to have Elgato on board as one of the sponsors for the F1 2012 Championship, and for us to be able to hold a giveaway for a Game Capture HD unit and a snazzy t-shirt.

This competition is going to run from right this very second all the way to 11:00 PM BST on Wednesday the 10th of October. At this point, all of the entries we receive will go into the digital hat that is and one lucky winner will be drawn out to win. The competition is open to the EU as a whole.

All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is enter in one or more of the following ways. First up are entries via twitter. Simple follow @elgatogaming and @thesixthaxis and tweet the following message:

  1. WOW, great prize. Someone is going to be very happy.

    • I’ll bet they will be!

      Had a fantastic response so far. My phone’s been incessantly been buzzing as entries flood in!

  2. Don’t need it. Still have my Etch-a-Sketch. :-P

    *goes to draw square boobs*

  3. Nice one. What a cracking prize.

  4. Awesome prize, cheers guys!

  5. I’ll hope I win, cause then I don’t have to use a camera filming my screen.

  6. Fantastic prize! Looked really good on the video tef did a while back and his footage has been great!

    Fingers crossed!

    • Agreed, great bit ‘o’ kit and a must win prize!
      I won’t be entering though as I already have the AverMedia game capture device and it’d be a bit greedy to own this as well when others could make much better use. :P

  7. Now that’s a really awesome prize! Would love to have one of those, especially after watching the review video a while back :)

  8. I’ve been looking for a simple recording solution for ages. Your video review really made this shine but I didn’t take the plunge.
    Maybe I won’t need to. ;) Great prize here, guys!

  9. Awesome stuff this! The device sounds like exactly what I’ve been looking for, pretty sleek too. Hope I win, if not, may have to purchase…

  10. Fingers crossed for me! :P Although I’m probably still on a competition blacklist after my last comp win… Haha. Glad it’s not just going to the F1 winner! That means we all have a chance of winning it and not just Lee and Jambo. :P
