Short Comment: Some Damn Lucky people already have FFX !!!!
It's 5 days before FFX gets released, but some people already have their copy!! Remember the FFX figures campaign that Coca-Cola did? Well, by sending a tab from the wrapping by glueing it on a postcard, 2001 lucky entrees won a Free FFX. Those contestants aparently got their copies today. Here's some pics of one lucky winner's set. [ Link ]
