Win a new iPad or graphics card in our Max Payne 3 give-away

Unique Max Payne iPad and two Zotac GeForce GTX 670 graphics cards up for grabs


A year and a half ago, when we first heard that Max Payne 3 was being developed, we were excited. Very excited.

We were teased with screenshots, story info and trailers. When the game finally came out, we loved it.

Max Payne 3 has all the gritty heart and soul that made the first two games great; its mix of noir storyline, heart-racing gameplay and innovative features — welcome back, Bullet Time — have made it an instant classic for us.

It's even better than the first two games thanks to the built-in multiplayer modes, which are constantly being built upon with the release of DLC episodes. These packs add new multiplayer maps, weapons and items on top of the standard game's already-impressive arsenal.

To celebrate the release of the new Disorganized Crime Pack for Max Payne 3, we've teamed up with Rockstar Games to give away some great prizes.

First prize is a one-of-a-kind Max Payne iPad. It's a new iPad 16GB Wi-Fi, with a unique Max Payne decal on the back in the style of the original game's artwork. There's also a sweet Rockstar Games logo on the iPad's home button:


Two runner-up prizes are for avid PC gamers. Rockstar has given us two Zotac GeForce GTX 670 AMP! Edition graphics cards to give away:


To go into the draw to win one of these prizes, all you've got to do is sign up for an account on PC World, remembering to use a valid email address that we can contact you with. If you've already got a PC World user account, then you can skip this step.

Once you've signed up for an account, leave a comment below this article, telling us the answer to this question in 150 words or less:

What would you go through to win a Max Payne iPad or graphics card?

The best and most creative answers will win. Talk yourself up - give us a great crime story, with heroes and bad guys (you can be either!), and throw in plenty of Max Payne-esque action.

We'll pick a first place winner, and two runner-up winners in two weeks' time — that's on Friday the 28th of September — and get in touch to send out prizes. You've got to be an Australian resident over the age of 18 to enter this competition — read the full terms and conditions here.

Good luck, and get writing!

Major Payne is what i would go through to lay my hands on this unreal prize



I'd sit through dinner with the In-Laws!



I'd go through Max Payne 1 & 2 PLUS all the on-board Graphics Chips I've used !!!

Roberto Colombi


Wall to wall Big Brother episodes with no respite... it'd be worth every second of those annoying wannabe tv stars!

Marie Pohnetalova


I'd go through my boyfriend's mess=strewn bedroom and even not shirk from any new life-forms that might be living there!

stephen Thomas


watch brother sing dolly parton songs at karaoke he sounds exactly like her too embarrassing because hes a priest



I would marry Max Payne and have his baby. I see this as a win-win situation! ;-)



I know it would be a PAYNE to the MAX but I would stand in a room full of smokers and then not wash myself for a week and let everyone else enjoy the stench of the know caring s a ROCKSTAR

Hayley Munro-Lynch


A gun fight with Max Payne himself in a cold day in hell!

Dylan Hamilton-Foster


I would endure;
1. A wrestling match with the crew from the Expendables
2. Death by Snoo Shoo
3. Endless christmas carols played on the accordian by poorly trained happy unicorns
4. A nasty paper cut
5. Underwear shopping with the missus
6. Public humiliation
7. A cold shower
8. No internet for a day.. just a day
9. Chinese burn
10. Back to back twighlight movies



I'll go through hell and beat the crap out of devil himself to get my hands on this holy grail.



I've been through child birth 3 times and I would go through the PAYNE of that twice over, rather than incur the wrath of my boyfriend if he doesn't get his hands on one of these amazing goodies!



After Having been quite emphatically told by Ross to "...forget to enter our Max Payne 3 give-away ..." I just had to enter this for a shot at that iPad!



To win a Max Payne iPad I would agree to send a message to Armando Becker on behalf of Max PAYNE. This is what I’d go through to send the message:

• Wear Max's Hawaiian shirt in public
• Get a tattoo, designed by Max, on my butt.
• Give all my pain killers to Max before I can use them.
• Listen to hours and hours of Max’s witty words of wisdom
• Shot my way through 100 gringos to find Becker – using bullet time.
• In front of Becker drop my pants and bend over to reveal an image of Max Payne “what’s that smell” face.



Crawling nude, up a dark alley strewn with pointed steel tacks..would Max Payne do it? probably not but I'd seriously consider, to win this amazing prize from the generous PC World team.

Paintballing with Max Payne and myself against everyone else who wants this iPad, using his slueth skills to outwit all competitors , with sly and cunning they wont see us coming as we wipe out each one by one,until only I remain,victor.

Lisa D


I would endure sitting through and listening to my husband watching and screaming about every single FIFA World Cup game at ridiculous hours in the morning for the entire month.

Matthew S


I'd painstakingly upgrade the rest of my PC just so I could fit this sweet card into my archaic machine.

John Vargas


I'd battle the mafia, mobsters, police, drug-runners *and* the mysterious Aesir Corporation in the freezing streets of bleak New York. It'd be a hell of a fight, but I'd win it.

After that, I'd find myself up against combat-hardened contract killers in the dead of night, and more mobsters besides. They'd almost be the end of me, but I'd take down their boss and I'd be victorious again.

Once I thought that was all over, I'd try to find peace. But my past would catch up, I'd have to flee to sunny, sweaty Sao Paolo, and it'd all start again. I'd be fighting for my life against gangs, paramilitia, corrupt Brazilian elite police, and even those who I'd counted on as friends...

Phil K


Max Payne, ass kicking lunatic suffering flash backs to make a samurai shake in his booties. I would join Max in his quest to purchase the ultimate iPad, and we all know what that would entail, but heck it would be worth having to clamber over the twitching remnants of drug barons, mobsters and shonky cops to get my hands on the ultimate Max swag. Bring it



While fighting to clean the streets of the worst kind of human trash, I'd get a PhD in Physics, design a bullet-time device for myself, and become the ultimate enforcer. No one would have a chance.

Anupa Somasiri


I would go through all those exams I passed another time for this...



Id go through a room of angry ladies at that time of the month while yelling out "Men are here to stay so put up with it ladies" - i wont be short of bruises on that day.

Gregory Allen


I would fly to Mars and back

Sarah Collett


I would go up against pirates to get to the iPad. Of course max Payne will be by my side



i would have to thank pc world my getting your logo tattooed on myself



I would go through everyone who has posted before me to ensure I won this prize!



Cuddle crocs, kiss fish, anything for my wish!
Climb Everest, jump out planes.
Eat pins, take pain,
For Max I’m seriously insane!
Eat scorpions, walk on glass
Even fail my uni class.
Run a marathon, walk on fire,
Roll down Everest in an old tractor tyre!
Please Max Payne I'm your biggest fan,
Name your price, and I'll do what I can!

Dean Knobel


I would sell my Mac to buy a PC!!!

Amanda :)


A weekend at my mother in-laws place, i would have to be careful not to tread on a mine bomb or an ambushed attack, constantly feeling my ears to see if there burning and sleeping with one eye open.with my 5 kids and my husband by my side i am sure i could concur this mother in-law once and for all !!



To win this awesome ipad I'd
Run down the street screaming it's a tumour, it's a tumour.
Spend 24 hours locked in a room with my sons whining, winging, sinus sniffing, throat clearing, nose blowing partner. Listening to monotonous techno music till my ears bleed.
I would dig up my dead x husband and smack him upside the head like he did to me all those years ago. Then tell him I'd be back.
Then I'd sit through 10 episodes back to back of the Kardashians and Jersey Shore.
Now if the last thing doesn't prove how damn serious I am to win this thing then nothing will.



Lets put it this way ok.....I downloaded Crysis3 on the 31st of october for 12 hours only to find it was not realeased till 2nd november :'( then to find out on 2nd my stupif graphics card is not good enough to play it! :'(
I dont just want I NEED!



What would I go through? I would seriously consider being kicked in the junk 20 times in a row for this bad boy. But let's be real, that's a bit silly, and painful. What would I really do? I'd probably do what every other gamer junkie would do... Anything you guys wanted me to! Or, I'd probably do whatever the winner of this competition claims, but I'd do it twice!



I'm sure you probably keep the prizes under lock and key, but no matter what, i'd get to them if I wasn't the winner. You're probably wondering how a guy like me can accomplish such a feat. Well you are in for a surprise.

I would hire some of my brother's less savoury acquaintances, and form a team which I can use to take what should be mine. With me leading them, no hiding place will keep us from my prize.

Just as long as I can get both those beautiful graphics cards and a sweet new ipad, I will venture outside to the world that has shunned me. I will bathe in the sunlight and even interact with another human being.

This is my story. The prizes will be mine.

To get this GPU, I will quit Facebook, forever because I am a game addict. I don't have a high end PC now & I would literally do anything to get this. If I get to play games with this Graphics card, I will not even take my girlfriend on a date.

Faisal I


The things I would do.......

I would die in a stinky loo,
While going number two.
I would start a turf war,
Despite all the gore.
I would face, ’the bat’,
And kick him in the sack.
I would furioso,
Hunt those Mafioso.
I would exterminate the Bratva,
While wearing a balaclava.
I would become a martyr,
To destroy that soul sucking Valkyr.
Please help end my suffering,
By upgrading I won’t need any more buffering.
In the end I would do whatever it took,
That, is the end of my book..........
I'll see you all in Valhalla.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
