If you've been in a drug store lately, you might have noticed bottles of Edge Shave Gel wrapped in special PlayStation packaging. If you buy one of those bottles, you'll get a code that can be redeemed online to get exclusive DLC for Infamous 2, Killzone 3, or Gran Turismo 5. But it turns out there's a much easier way to get the DLC.
It seems the codes are either not unique, or Sony just didn't implement a way to determine whether or not a code has been redeemed. So just going to the store and writing down the code will let you get the DLC - even if someone else already used that code.
So even if you don't shave, don't like Edge, or for any other reason had no desire to participate in the promotion, you can still get the DLC, completely free of charge.
Simply go to EdgeShave.com and enter one of the codes readily available online, fill out some personal info, and you're good to go. We tested it out ourselves and it does work. You can do this as many times as you want to nab the following content, as described by Sony:
* A Killzone 3 Retro Map Pack featuring two popular maps from Killzone 2
* Three Killzone 3 Unlock Points to use on the weapon or ability of your choice
* A customized Chevy Camaro SS “Edge Special” for Gran Turismo 5
* A special “Sniper Blast” in-game power for inFAMOUS 2. The long-range blast has a narrow area of effect to better equip you to take-on the enemy when inFAMOUS 2 arrives in June.
So let your facial hair grow. With free DLC like this, who needs to shave?
