Hey! Want to win an Xbox One?

2 min read


We love our community here on lazygamer.net – you guys make it all worth doing and we’d be nothing without you all. So we wanted to give something back to you. By teaming up with our good friends at Microsoft South Africa, I think we found the perfect way to make you feel special; we are giving away an Xbox One.

Yup. That’s right, we will be giving away an Xbox One with Kinect and Ryse Son of Rome. This is quite a prize for a lucky winner. In case you’ve already forgotten, Gavin played and reviewed Ryse recently and was surprised by how much fun he had with it. I’m sure I don’t need to sell you all on why this is an awesome giveaway – it’s a fantastic console with an excellent game that we’re giving away to a lucky reader.

So, how will the competition work? Well, all you need to do is head on over here and fill in the simple form to enter. Following that, you can grab some extra entries in the competition by going social with our very uniquely local hashtag. The competition will run for the next two weeks, so register and get social. The competition is only open to those within South Africa.

Meanwhile, Xbox South Africaย themselves are running some local promotions as well. If you haven’t already cracked the code, you can just follow this link to where weโ€™ve cracked it for you like a pirate. Register there and you might also win some prizes from them.

The Xbox One launches locally tomorrow. Have you already pre-ordered the console? Heading to one of the midnight launches? Are you excited to get your hands on those vibrating triggers?

What about Xbox One excites you the most?

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.

  • Jedi Consular Kromas

    Why not. Maybe ill finally see if the grass is greener (lol) on the other side.

    • ReaperOfSquirrels

      Lol… the grass definitely vibrates more.

      • Norm (@e3zype3zy)

        *rumble rumble*

      • Jedi Consular Kromas

        Also earlier access to Rise of the Bewb Physics.

  • Kikmi

    In all honesty, I’d actually like to give the controllers a bash. EA’s vault also seems pretty interesting.

  • Viking Of Science

    I’m In… #Lacquer

  • I saw Hammersteyn(spelling?) playing Destiny. I think it was during a game of Clash.

    • Hammersteyn

      LOL I played clash a lot this weekend, lagged like hell and got kicked out with Bee errors too. Was fun though.

    • Hammersteyn

      I do imagine I saw a guy called fancypants that owned me a lot, was that you?

      • Ah, no; It was not me ๐Ÿ˜€ my PSN ID is not the same as my Disqus tag, but Iโ€™m pretty sure I saw your name close to the end of one of the matches on [something] Light, the map on the Moon?

        Iโ€™ve been playing Control since Destiny was launched, but I thought Iโ€™d give Clash a go, this past weekend. And now, I donโ€™t see myself going back to playing Control, tbh :/

        • Hammersteyn

          Yeah, Team Deathmatch is more fun.

  • Norm (@e3zype3zy)

    Pick meeeeeeeee

  • ReaperOfSquirrels

    Done, entered, extra entries… now lemme win for a change demmit! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Labey-Kun

    Wish I could keep pick the Xbox One tomorrow but, thanks to life things are changing at my work, getting a new boss so I can’t take a gamble on buying a Xbox One at the moment , since I won’t know if I will have a job end of the month haha, but anyway it will be great that we finally as South African’s can finally play on the Xbox One! #excited

  • Daniel Hallinan

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

      Now THAT’S how you audition for a Timotei ad.

    • Norm (@e3zype3zy)

      Pantene…”Hair So Healthy It Shines.”

    • WOW 0_O

    • Kensei Seraph

  • Brendyn Zachary

    “Really amped to play games at 720p” – he said jokingly but the sarcasm was lost on the online commentators.
    They proceeded to rip his body to shreds.

    • Spaffy

      You forgot the 30fps bit

  • I suppose I will be excluded. Flip.

    • Jedi Consular Kromas

      Ooh … less competition for random.org draws yay! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • Durka Durka

            Ofcourse not a pussy only upvotes those who do the flaming doesnt have the guts to post his own opinion.

          • Ryder

            Wow your like the only person I have ever met on the Internet that thinks their opinion is right and everybody else’s is wrong!…..wise up you retard and accept that your wrong for once in your pathetic life.

          • Durka Durka

            No my opinion is right and that clown insulting me on a fact was uncalled for, you voting up a dbag is beyond urneal.

            I am not wrong kid, everything i said was correct and got thumbs up, but you had to be a cunt.

            Not it make sesne you are a lonely virgin with no life that likes to herass people becuase your pathetic life sucks.

            But hey keep telling me i am wrong on facts RETARD.

          • Ryder

            Haha ok so now I’m that one that is harassing you? Listen you pathetic little turd I couldn’t give two fucks about what you had to say on that post I just liked wat the other guy said and didn’t even take the time to read wat ever bullshit you were speaking. I was done with that post and have moved on from it like I couldn’t even remember what the fuck you were talking about! And I couldn’t care less but you just had to get all pissy and track me down across posts to say how stupid I am and insulting me! And now I’m the one harassing you? Haha take a good look in the mirror and go back to Afghanistan.

          • Durka Durka

            ” I just liked wat the other guy said”

            You liked the other guy insulting me?

            Bitch please go fuck your mother you are a huge fucking douchebag.

            didn’t even take the time to read wat ever bullshit you were speaking”

            So you didnt read what i posted and people who did upvoted me because i was right about this thing and people have started to notice that ubisofts games just recycle conent and lie to the consumer and you just upvoted the other guy for insulting me and being wrong?

            You are a major retarded faggot.

          • Ryder

            Yes I up voted that guy for the sole purpose because he insulted an Arab and as you may have guessed I don’t like towel heads and I never will.

            Look mate I can see your getting angry and I really don’t have time to get into a childish name calling contest because unlike some people I have a life that is worth living so write what ever you want to write because I will not be replying to your senseless bullshit so goodbye my confused and lonely Arabic friend.

          • Durka Durka

            I am not a arab. I am european and the Durka Durka comes from a south park parody.

            But insulting people becuase of their race? Thats racist.

            Seems to me you are the typical american who things MERICA is the best country in the world and totally right about everything, quite the oppossite.

            MERICA is one of the worst countries in the world, filled with lies corruption, MERICA IS DA BEST propaganda and spying on its citizens.

            Your life is not worth living you dumb MERICAN is quite pathetic and filled with ingorance infact.
