Courtesy of our friends at Sony, we have five (5) vouchers to give away for the Uncharted 2: Among Thieves multiplayer beta that launched during E3 last week. 

Full disclosure: I can't think of a good, quick contest to run off the top of my head to distribute these with. So to win, I want you to reply in the comments with your best idea for a contest that would result in you winning an Uncharted 2 multiplayer voucher. The five best ideas for how I should have run this thing will win a code (and perhaps your idea will be used in a future contest as well).

I'll give you till the end of the day before selecting the winners; you'll want to get started playing ASAP, since the beta only runs till around the end of the month. Also note that the vouchers are only good in the U.S. and Canada, so if you're located elsewhere, don't waste your time!

While we're on the subject, here's what the single-player portion of Uncharted 2 was looking like at E3. You'll have to wait till later in the year to try this part out, sadly. We've also got an interview in the works with the game's director, the affable Evan Wells, so stay tuned for that.

  

UPDATE: To give those of you on the West Coast a chance to throw your hat in, I'll extend the deadline until 12pm Pacific Time tomorrow. Check back in the afternoon to see if you made it.

I wish I had a PS3 because the demo at E3 was pretty cool looking and I want to see what the multiplayer is like.

I already have a code so you can throw out this entry, BUT.......  I think you should have had people submit a photo or video of their best half-tucked shirt impression.  Even Elaina is rockin' one these days!!

The contest should be taking a real life video of Uncharted via live action.  With the same witty dialogue!

>_>  I have an American PSN account but Play-Asia didn't ship the US copy with Uncharted 2 codes.  I hate living outside the States at times.

I'm British so the voucher is no good to me, but I'll throw in an entry for fun.

The contest should be: "Do your best impersonation of Lucha Deer doing a Nathan Drake impression."

You must submit a video of you, with a half-tuck, and who ever shoots a person with an ak-47 the most times without them dieing wins.  Also, the person being shot can wear only shorts and a wife-beater.

How about:

Solve the mystery as to why my inFAMOUS copy had no  Uncharted 2 beta key in it?

Was it because I bought my copy in Switzerland where they could honestly care less about some beta key! Yes! That's probably it!

But at least no one else in Europe got a key in their copy, right?

...

yeah.....

Would an "upload the new Endurance Run" contest be applicable?

If it isn't, would a "make your own TANG" work?

Basically, you guys make a riddle like book like the one in Uncharted and Sir Francis Drakes. These all lead to clues within the site, where you will give another clue, etc.

For example, you guys say:

Sword, Cap, Shield, Arrows,
These are the words for the next link.

The answer to that is LINK, so you will have to find that wiki edit on Giantbomb and then youll find the next clue there.

The next one could be

Jeff gave this a 6.0
Reason for firing? I dont know

The answer to that is Kane and Lynch Dead Men, so you go on that wiki edit and find the next clue there.

This can go on for as long as you like for the people to get a beta code. All they have to do is when they find the actual code (Say it is 'I like Pie' they send you a message on your board. You dont deny or approve it, you guys just keep it there.

Edit: Damn it, Im from England.Frickedy frick frick.

Giant bomb information/Easter egg  scavenger hunt.

The giant bomb staff give out a list of clues about a large verity of games on the site and everyone else must discover what those games/concepts/objects/etc are.

Edit: oh yea almost forgot, first group/person enters with the full and most correct list wins.

My idea:

Make a well rounded essay arguing about whether Drake's shirt is half tucked or half pulled out. Explain why this fashion sense contributes to the character's development into a more mature, darker, hairier Drake. Spelling will be graded and make sure to date at the top. Paper will be due by the time Naughty Dog finally makes that new Jak game.
