Here Come The Wii-nners!

In order to celebrate Panasonic giving a bonus Wii with selected Full HD Viera Plasma TVs this month we decided to spread the joy further by awarding Wii’s online through daily challenges.

The Bonus Wii Challenge kicked off 29th June. Each weekday a Challenge is announced on Panasonic’s Twitter page and alerts sent out from our Facebook page at 9am. Every challenge is different, takes place across different social networks and has a Wii up for grabs.

To get involved simply follow Panasonic on Twitter or become a fan on Facebook.
