Well, apparently there's a contest on X-Box LIVE where you have to register your Gamertag and are entered into a contest every time you play Halo 3 online. The grand prize is a Limited Edition, framed piece of Halo 3 Artwork with commemorative Sniper School plaque and certificate of authenticity and there are 1250 daily prizes of 800 Microsoft Points. But guess what, only American's can enter. WHAT THE HELL!!!!!!!! As if they're any more important than I am!!!!!! I HATE YOU MICROSOFT!!!!!!!

The one thing I don't understand is this. Canada is next to America, so whats the big deal? And as if getting the prizes to Europe would be hard, I mean come on, Europe is developed and it's easy to mail things. I could understand that it might be hard to get the prizes to undeveloped countries but why leave the developed countries out of it? Last time I was playing Halo 3 online, the map that shows who's online was basically only America, Canada (even though you couldn't really tell since 90% of our population is so close to the border), and Europe. So would that really have been that hard?

Anyways, you need internet to play on X-Box LIVE. If a country has internet available to the masses, then it can definitely mail to the masses so there should be problem with letting all the countries in on this.

It's a lot more complicated than..."Oh I think we should only make it USA exclusive"...you have to think past the nose on your face sometimes...

Ya, I know there has to be some reason behind this, I mean it is a business after all. But if someone would just explain the actual reason that every single contest in a magazine or game or on T.V. is only for Americans then I would be fine with it, I just hate not knowing why everyone else is left out.
