Default Why Did I Receive a GTA4 Baseball Bat in the Mail?

So I picked up my mail and had a long triangular package today. I open it up and I find a grey metal baseball bat branded with the Grand Theft Auto 4 label. There is no other material in the package except some paper used to cushion the bat, but nothing is printed on it.

What gives? Did anyone else receive one?

did you complete 100% or somethign or download a gamer pic to enter a contest?

Might be a XBL or PSN contest you signed up for. 1000's win.

No, I did not complete 100%. I did finally just go back and finish the last 5 missions of the main story finally, but I just can't believe they send baseball bats to everyone who completed the game (especially considering I only did it 2 days ago).

I've entered a bunch of those play & win contests before, where you either dl gamerpics (if they are free) or play a game on a certain day. Have never won before. I may have entered one unknowingly for gta4, but usually the prizes are like MS points or games or grand prizes for consoles. This is an odd prize.

I'm considering selling it on eBay, as I saw a few up there earlier as well and don't really need a baseball bat (I beat my hookers by hand, thank you very much), but don't really know the value of a trinket like this. If it was limited edition, then maybe, but otherwise its probably worth 5 bucks.

Thanks Michealo

After reading that article, I pretty much wish I had done worse in this contest...I'd rather have MS points, etc, than a bat. Ah well, never look a gift-horse...

Hey. Be happy. You got your own baseball bat + a personal license to beat up prostitutes (not my words, the article is the one to blame)

I haven't played a PC game that came out in the last 5 years. My time on PC gaming is mostly spent replaying old games again, like classic Sierra/LucasArt adventure games and old RPGs like Fallout. So I guess to answer you question...no.
