Arcade-in-a-Box Smash It Up Contest!
http://digg.com/gaming_news/Arcade_in_a_Box_Smash_It_Up_Video_Contest

Arcade-in-a-Box will be holding a contest and will be giving away a complete Arcade-in-a-Box solo console arcade controller to the winner. More prizes will be added as the contest progresses. New sponsors and prizes will be added to this post including other prizes from Arcade-in-a-Box, Gameroom magazine and more.

For the contest we are asking contestants to enter videos showing them destroying gamepads in the most creative ways possible. We just ask that you be safe, be smart, and don?t injure yourself in the process.

The contest will last about until the end of April, at which time our panel of judges will pick the top 10 videos. Once those videos are selected, there will be a website created where users can vote on their favorite video by DIGGing them. The winners will be determined by the amount of DIGGs each video gets.

We have a youtube group created for you to upload your videos.

We just have a few simple rules.
No nudity
No drug use
Nothing illegal

That?s it, now get out there and Smash up those wussy gamepads ;).

Just to let everyone know, we’ve extended this until the end of May.

FYI, you don’t have to smash up 360 gamepads. Any gamepad will work (or even a guitar like one video).
