Sony announces cockamamie contest to help promote "Quantum of Solace"

Okay, maybe it’s not completely ridiculous, but I felt like using cockamamie in a headline. Anyway, Sony launched the “Mission for a Million” contest that runs through November 7 for a chance at $1 million prize. To enter you need to complete missions to recover stolen Sony HDNA and some other shenanigans, which gives you a shot at the grand prize. But that’s not the cool part. Sony is offering a limited edition run of VAIO notebooks, Micro Vault USB drives, and a Reader Digital Book.

An exclusive, limited edition VAIO TT notebook comes emblazoned with a 007 logo on the palm rest and a matching leather protection case. Only 100 units will be available and each unit will bear a serialized number.

The Special Edition Bond bundle for the Reader Digital Book features an embossed cover with a 007 logo and coupon codes for free downloads from the Sony eBook Store of Ian Fleming’s novels Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

An exclusive 007 USB Micro Vault, in 8 or 16GB capacities, comes pre-loaded with the Quantum of Solace movie trailer and bonus contents.
