GameFlavor describes why the current God of War III and 7-Eleven Slurpee cross-promotion is such a lame deal because of the ill-conceived point system.

Reading through your comment history tinman, you actually got the ridiculously expensive ($150 dollars) prestige edition of MW2 that came with the cheap toy NVG.

So tell me, who falls for what again?

Biggest size is less than $2 after tax and it gives you 4 points. There were codes for 2 free points going around so I got the Kratos costume for only 2 large slurpees. I drank a lot more for the Home shirts and hoodies.

I'm not a fan of slurpees but it's not terrible and it's cheaper than other big sized can drinks at 7-11. Slurpees are cheap and besides the codes u get a drink, don't see why people are complaining.

Edit: Taken from CheapAssGamer.com:

Slurpee size(s):
- 7.11 oz. = 2 points
- 12 oz. = 1 points
- 22 oz. = 2 points
- 28 oz. = 3 points
- 40 oz. = 4 points

the sizes are only a few cents difference anyway.

TheDudeAbides2741d ago

is it something to drink?, why does it end with *pee then lol?

Anyway [email protected] its not like they will add free armour to every cup of coffee or w/e it is. When you're fan of this drink, and you'll buy it anyway and this way you get your bonus, easy.

bjornbear2741d ago

love myself a 40 oz...=3

FamilyGuy2741d ago

This is for people who already buy slurpees in the first place.

I'd get one for the dynamic theme and just wait till i can purchase the armor on the PS Store.

BTW, slurpees are $1.50-$1.76 here.

This is BS. 7-11's don't have Slurpee's around here... only ICY's. WTF!? :(

Sadly, none of the 7-Elevens near me are participating in the promotion. I was really excited to get a God of War cup but was disappointed.

So the author should stop complaining, at least he has a chance to get the cups, points, slurpee, etc.

Edit: ^Same here, we only have ICY's.

@Dude.

Everything you drink ends with pee, dude.

This is wrong. The Kratos cups give you 2 points and the larger size cups give you 3.

What I hate is you can't use the armor until you have beaten the game once.

weazel2741d ago

I think it's just to encourage you to complete the game as fully as possible on your first playthrough, and just not spam magic / uber attacks and remove the challenge. (Think dairy bastard, and cod of war in the earlier episodes.)

PlayStation3602741d ago (Edited 2741d ago )

The 7-11 I go to gives out 4 points per cup. 3 cups and I get the armor and Home hoodie.

bjornbear2741d ago

its almost as if they just COPIED MS points system =( just ripping people off PFF

emk20042741d ago

how much does the dynamic theme cost

kaelix2741d ago

6. have it. awesome. burning eyes that will stare you down. xD <_< march needs to hurry up.

Bilzac2741d ago

Main issue here is that, this whole promotion is to spread the word of GOW 3 and not to increase the sales for Slurpees. I think if you are upset by this then you must have already decided to buy the game, hence u are technically not the target audience for Sony's Slurpee promotion. It is mainly for every casual gamer who buys Slurpees every now and then and haven't heard of GoW. Sure its a rip off for them too, but they are less likely to redeem anything and more likely to just have a greater curiosity for GoW3.

if it works do it. people buy slurpies everyday
