Essential competition for gamers



It doesn’t really matter when you were born, if you’re a fan of video games, then the chances are pretty good that you’re a fan of the old school Nintendo consoles; the original Sega Megadrive; of Mario and Sonic and all the classic characters.

Nobody geeks out over “that guy from Assassin’s Creed” – even if it is one of the best selling video game series of the 21st century – but if you put Sonic the Hedgehog (a character made famous on consoles by a company that doesn’t even make consoles anymore) in front of any 12 year old budding video gamer, they’re probably going to get quite excited.

Even if you (or your kids) are more Xbox than Saturn, video game trader Music Magpie has started a great competition that could give you your complete gaming fix – for the price of a tweet.

Details of the competition can be found here, but to summarise, just follow Music Magpie on Twitter and retweet the below:
