RIM are really far behind the eight ball right now, but it looks like they're going to be rewarding game developers who work on BlackBerry 10, building up their app catalog.

Starting November 16, there'll be a God Game Port-a-Thon where RIM will give producers $100 for every game successfully ported to the upcoming BB10 platform. The more titles ported, the better the gift-giving gets.

 

Three or more ports gets you a free BlackBerry PlayBook, five ports nets you a Dev Alpha device to test your creations in a proper native environment, and 10 or more ports will see you win yourself a trip to the Game Developers Conference next March. There's only 36 hours to get into this gift-giving goodness, with a bunch of developers needing to get their code ready in advance to be in the running for these prizes.
