On what may be put biggest competition to date, we’re giving away an Xbox One with Kinect and a copy of Ryse to one lucky reader. The results are in and we have a winner. We’re about to make one person’s weekend. Could it be you?

Well yes, it could – if your name happens to be Jaco Foot! I won’t laugh at your name, because deep down, I’m jealous, and wish I could have won this for myself. Here’s the list of people who almost won an Xbox One.

XboxWinner

Jaco, we’ll be in contact soon to get your details, and get your Xbox One off to you. Thanks to everyone who entered, and thanks to Xbox South Africa for sponsoring the prize. We hope to have many more big competitions like this in future – so don’t feel too glum that you didn’t win.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Umar

    I feel GLUM!!!!

  • ReaperOfSquirrels

    Gratz Jaco.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Congrats Jaco!

    • You don’t mean that. I know you…

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Not true. I am happy he won.

        Mostly because when I clicked the link I was thinking, “oh please god let it not be me, what was I thinking when I entered!” 😀

  • Admiral Chief 0

    Heh, Tartaresauce

  • Admiral Chief 0

    7010 entries!!! Madness

    • MIke

      Yeah I kinda want to see the list at the other end. Who was 7010?

      • ReaperOfSquirrels

        Probably Rince, Admiral, or myself…. or some other regular 😛

        • Anon A Mouse

          I’m sure I will be 7011 or something.

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

            Along with me.

    • That 10 was the regulars right?

      • Admiral Chief 0

        Indeed, although I think we have about 30 regulars (becoz of the size yes?)

        • DA SIIIIIIIIIIIIZE!

        • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

          But only 10 high end commentors 😛

      • Spaffy

        It’s never the regulars…

        • I think LG is biased to us man. 🙁 And we do all the hard work!

          • Spaffy

            Yea. I think the next prize should go to the 30 or so people that keep the comment section going. That’s pretty much everyone I follow on disqus.
            Except Ryanza. Always anon.
            Oh and Mike

          • Admiral Chief 0

            So the prize should go to ALL 30? I DON’T WANT TO SHARE WITH RINCE, OR TREVOR

          • Spaffy

            My bad, ONE of the 30 😛

          • Spaffy

            And don’t worry about Trevor, he’ll never figure out which way to hold the controller and eventually give up.

          • JJ of Meridian

            That’s because he’s a lefty. The unaligned sticks confuses him.

          • Spaffy

            I’m a lefty, and if only this keyboarmkhirt,bkbmv

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            i didn’t even know there were buttons on the front until Rince pointed it out to me.

          • JJ of Meridian

            That’s true. I pour my heart out on this forum and allow people to mess with me while I cry black tears. And I don’t even get acknowledged. Madness.

          • Hammersteyn

            lol black tears.

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I’m probably not getting the same mental image that you do :/

          • Hammersteyn

            moar T-Shirts!

          • JJ of Meridian

            *tents

          • Hammersteyn

            oh right 😀

          • HvR

            Due to a court order I will not say anything about the Random.org’s “randomness”

        • Johnny

          Jaco’s a good friend and we are actually pretty avid readers/followers of LG, sure you can’t call us regulars down here in the comments, but he’s a true gamer through and through. You deserve it bro.

          • Spaffy

            Yea, just jesting. I’m a sore loser, ok?

    • FoxOneZA

      To Geoff it’s 700 010 entries 😛

      • JJ of Meridian

        lol

  • ReaperOfSquirrels

    7010 entries? Wow, that’s decent, but I wonder how many of those are regular readers and how many just found that article through News24.

    • Admiral Chief 0

      Indeed, sad panda is us

    • To win, name 10 regular commenters!

      • JJ of Meridian

        That sounds fair.

        • To be fair, I’m not that regular. Need more special K

          • JJ of Meridian

            Who are you anyway? 😉

          • I’m number 15 on the list, bitch! *Cries and runs away*

          • JJ of Meridian

            Trevor is probably NEIN

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I vanted vun vun!

      • Spaffy

        Trevor. Rince. JJ. Admiral. Rants. Jim. The Hammer. OVG. Umar. Kensai.
        I can easily do 20

        • DO IT!

          • Spaffy

            Jonah, Brady, Tosh, Sage, Kromas, Mossel, Lardus, ReaperOfSomething, that excheez dude, Ottokie

          • Still not in top 20 :'(

          • Spaffy

            Well, if you eat all your vegetables and don’t do anything productive all day, maybe you’ll grow up to join Admiral, Rince and Trevor up in the top echelon. 😛

          • Can I not just change my name to Mark Vincer – Staff?

          • Spaffy

            Yea, that should it.

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

            Hey 🙁 What about me? Don’t make me pull out a lengthy rant!

          • Spaffy

            Uhm, you were under the first 10…

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

            oh wait… Urm whoops, so I was. I’m just gonna go sit in a corner and be quiet…. It’s the shock of not appearing on the random.org list

          • Spaffy

            hate random.org …

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

            agreed

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

            Now sing it to the tune of the PokeRap

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          WOOO! No.1! Wait… O_o

    • JJ of Meridian

      I haven’t been on news 24 in over a year. That site is just so laughable.

  • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

    People, seriously… Stop sharing the link! DAMMIT!

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      I blame news24

      • Travis

        Truth

      • Hammersteyn

        hahahaha

      • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

        agreed

  • Matthew Holliday

    I think I might just stop entering competitions entirely.
    :<

    • JJ of Meridian

      I feel you

      • Jaco

        You might want to rephrase that

        • JJ of Meridian

          I feel your pain?
          I suppose this is Lagz after all. Say something wrong once, it will follow you forever.

          • Spaffy

            What’s that about eyeliner?

          • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

            Hahahahahaha

          • JJ of Meridian

  • Johann

    Conspiracy, I want to see the full list

  • Brandon van Reenen

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! :'(

  • Lynley James

  • Ross Woofels Mason

    As usual I didn’t even make it into the list Q.Q Just as well probably because I’d be to cheap to by the games lol.

    Congrats to the wiener!

  • Travis

    Lets be honest most of us would have just sold this for the cash. probably to buy games, pc components or a PS4.

    • JJ of Meridian

      You sir are correct. In my case at least.

    • Hammersteyn

      Ssssshhh

  • JJ of Meridian

    My condolences to Jaco.

    • CAE9872

      It is a pretty schweet piece of kit to be honest. And all connected without a hitch…so far!

      • JJ of Meridian

        Just messing around, you know how us pc folk get. ;P

  • CAE9872

    I ended up just buying one. Now…I need more SA friends.

  • hairyknees

  • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

    Well done dude.

    random.org still hates me it seems. Not even in the top 25
    *cries*

  • Willem Swanepoel

    I wonder what is worse … not being on the list or number 2 ? 🙂

    • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

      eish. Yeah that’s a kick in the nuts

      • Admiral Chief 0

        KKKOMBO kick in the nuts

  • Michael Matusowsky

    I don’t even know why I enter this competitions.

  • Sir GIF Sexy

    Geoff promised me he’d let me win after I let him have his filthy way with me, but here I am, once again, not even on the list! I couldn’t walk straight for a week, Geoff! For a week!

  • Gareth L (That eXCheez Guy)

    That feeling you get when you just *know* that the winner is suspicious.

    • Brady miaau

      A month? Yeees. Far more. Parcels from feb still stuck in system, in Gauteng. We have several parcels, that we sent and are expecting in limbo.

  • Johann

    Sigh, so I didn’t win. So I did the next best thing and bought myself one with Shadow of Mordor! So far, loving the console and the game.

  • Sk3tz0

    Don’t you hate it when people co n e out of the wood works during compitirion time. Yet every day it’s same handful of ppl commenting.

  • congrats & well done, 😉

  • DJSkippy

    Goes and cries in the corner…..

  • Jaco Foot
