Electronic Arts seems hell bent on capitalizing on its unique deal with Porsche, announcing a new contest to win a 2012 911 Carrera S as part of a promotion for its upcoming Need For Speed: The Run video game. Apparently, all you need to do to be entered into the giveaway is log into your EA account or register a new account for free. No actual purchase of the game is necessary.

Naturally, there's some fine print – the contest is only open to people living in the United States, Canada or the UK, for instance. We know there are some angry (and very vocal) fans of the Forza series out there holding a Porsche-shaped grudge against EA, but we're guessing even the hardest of the hardcore Forza fans of the world would be willing to accept a free Carrera as at least partial compensation...

Check out a video announcing the giveaway after the break.
