Microsoft Ultimate Experience Competition

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Jan 18, 2013 11:56 pm

Hey all, I wasn't sure if this has been mentioned yet on here, but Microsoft has another competition that started Dec, 20th, but doesn't end until Feb 28th. There are some prizes, including a trip to the Studios in Redmond to meet with the Microsoft Studios team. Other prizes include games and Xboxes.

I have been up to the Studio buildings many times during my years at Microsoft and the group up there is pretty great. Though the competition says they are looking for Windows Store and Windows Phone apps, the fact that all the prizes are gaming related leads me to beleive that they are thinking of games mainly.

If you want more info check it out here: http://www.generationapp.com/ultimateexperience

Also the more apps you submit to the Windows or Windows Phone store, the more chances you have to win.BluePhaze2013-01-18 23:57:53

Hey there @codefoster, any chance former employees are eligible for this competition? I was based in SF and not part of the Studios, Xbox or Windows groups.

Most likely because the contest is being run by one of the U.S. based teams and there are a lot of rules and laws about international competitions. In this case if they want to run a quick competition, they don't want to have to look at checking with other jurisdictions and modifying the competition to comply with laws and regulations from multiple regions that may conflict or be mutually exclusive... at least, that was the case when I was at Microsoft.

I ran the SideWinder gaming site and blog and whenever I did competitions, I had to stick to my region, and if we wanted international, we had to get teams from each region to run the competition in their respective regions.
