Summer has well and truly arrived here in Britain. You can tell because our tea is evaporating, there's an ice cream supply crisis, and our beer gardens have become holding cells for the criminally insane. And that's just after two consecutive days of sunshine. Nevertheless, the summer cheer is here, E3 is right around the corner, and I thought what better way to celebrate all that is warm and wonderful than with our largest ever hardware giveaway here on GD.
For those familiar with our competitions, we're doing things a little bit differently this time around. For PC gamers after the ultimate hardware boost we've got a free GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card to give away, but if you're already happy with your GPU, or you're a console fan, the winner will get to choose between a GTX 1070 and Sony's PlayStation 4 Pro. A tricky decision for sure, but what a nice problem to have!
So one lucky winner will be given the choice - a GeForce GTX 1070 or the PlayStation 4 Pro, whichever they want. That lucky winner will have their brand new GTX 1070 or PS4 Pro dispatched from here in the UK, directly to their doorstep (I will talk to the winner to find out your physical address) Don't worry, the PS4 Pro is region free, however, you may need a compatible kettle lead for your region.
How do you get involved in this free game giveaway? It's the usual GD entry format stuff below. Anyone can be in with a chance of winning. And a lot of regular GD'ers will already be in with a chance, having completed entry actions last competition that carry forward to this hardware giveaway. The more actions you commit from the table below the more chances you have at winning this awesome piece of graphical gaming hardware.
A quick note - don't try to cheat the system as it logs users with suspicious behaviour and removes them from the winner selection draw, and it doesn't tell you that it's removed you.
How do I get in touch with the winner? I send an email or contact you via Twitter or Facebook or Steam or directly on GD, depending on how you enter and win. So make sure your email address is valid.
For those who just want to complete a quick entry, you can also just jump in to the competition with our Tweet button below or by installing our GD Anywhere Extension. Anyone using the extension will automatically be in with a chance of winning any of our competitions. And so you may already be in with a chance if you have that.
SOME ACTIONS ARE WORTH MORE THAN OTHERS.
BONUS ACTION CAN BE DONE EVERY DAY FOR AN EXTRA ENTRY. So you will want to revisit here as often as is practical for you.
Also anyone who is a Steam Group member of GD will also be in the draw, so please add yourself to our GD Steam group as well. Its pretty quiet over there at the moment, but at some point I will find time to get more active and at least you can quickly see who of your GD buddies are gaming and then join them for a session.
Again, to clarify, each way you enter counts as one or more entry into the competition. So entering via tweeting counts as an entry, already being a member of our steam group counts as another entry, already having installed our useful GD Anywhere Extension counts as 3 entries, being a youtube channel member is another entry, and so on. So a lot of you might not even need to bother to join our social groups because you are already in them and therefore entered into our hardware giveaway competition. But you can always fire out a new tweet to add another entry or revisit each day for our bonus entry click.
WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT: Here it is, the winner of the GD Summer Giveaway is.....Diego M. From Spain, Barcelona for referring a friend to the competition. Congratulations buddy its an amazing prize. Of the two awesome giveaway options you selected....a PS4 PRO. I hope you enjoy it immensely.

To everyone else who took the time to get involved, thank you and better luck next time, assuming you are not the insanely lucky Diego.
I run these giveaways because it pulls the GD community together and gets people who keep visiting GD to beocme members if they are not already. Which obviously adds to this great place and it gives a lucky person a chance to get more hardware added to their gaming arsenal. So if you have visited and joined the competition then please do take a moment to chat to a fellow GD'er today.
I will be doing another one of these in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
Enjoy the summer every one!
