Retro Remakes' 2008 competition was launched just yesterday, and with nearly USD $10,000 in prizes to be won the cream of the crop has to be that swanky gaming laptop worth $2,000 alone for the first place winner. (pictured above)

The competition runs from September 1st to December 6th 2008, with the results to be announced in January 2009. Contest rules and categories can be found at the official competition web site.
