GTA IV Winner Announced

1 min read


So for the last week we have been running a GTA IV competition where you were meant to recreate screenshots in a variety of ways and submit them for entries.

I had some fantastic entries and some not so good ones, there were some complaints about how the competition was run and we have listened to them. The next competition (that will be announced later) has taken this feedback into account and hopefully will meet with your approval…

The entries arrived in a steady flow through the week until yesterday, when it became apparent that Namibia wasn’t going to get GTA for a while. My (possibly only) Namibian reader then blasted my inbox with tons and tons of entries…

So without further delay lets put the entries through the online randomizer.


Congratulations Bobby…

Now I have to say I am quite chuffed about this, I wrote the first part and chose the top picture before randomizing… That is Bobby’s entry up there and Bobby is also the person who sent in tons of entries to the previous two comps and missed out.. This time he only sent in one entry (using himself so he got 3 entries) and his name came up in the top two places…

  • Messiah

    YEAH BABY!!!!

  • scratchy

    I’m pretty sure I already posted a comment, but anyway.

    Congrats Bobby. very nicely done.

    Gavin, how many entries did I have in total?

  • PillsburyDeeBoy

    Dude, I’m lank bummed for you, Scratch. You really put in work. Randomization sucks a naddy, but it remains the only way to keep it fair…

  • NoMaD

    Is there anyway to post the best entries?

  • scratchy

    To be honest pillsbury, if Bobby only put in 3 entries and the randomizer still picked him, then he really deserved it.

    So congrats to Bobby, hope you enjoy the game you **** :mrgreen:

  • bokka1

    I got mine today so congrats.

    Bobby do you have a gamertag?

  • Messiah

    I do but my live account got banned πŸ™ so can’t log into live anymore.

  • Messiah

    With the bad luck I have had with previous comps I did not leave anything to chance and I already bought the game 😐 So I now have it on PS3 and XBOX 😐

  • scratchy

    Bobby, I can always swap you a limited edition(1 of only 5 in SA) GTA IV hamper for the 360 copy? Say yes, PLEASE PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE?

  • Messiah

    What platform is it? Send Gavin an email and ask him for my email address?

  • Messiah

    Just read it back again, don’t worry about the platform question. Get my email and email me or give me your email, sorry, I am a little wiery of putting it on here, I get enough spam as it is πŸ˜›

  • scratchy

    I’ll drop Gavin a line in a few seconds. The hamper isn’t platform specific. It’s a few goodies like a shirt, cap, beer glass, sticker a Liberty City licence plate etc. I won it at Zaps and haven’t even seen the thing yet.

  • scratchy

    I sent Gavin an e-mail, just waiting for the reply. Just to make sure that you are aware. As far as the hamper is concerned, it’s all speculation. I’m all the way in Namibia and haven’t even received the hamper. Zaps don’t even know what’s in it, but it is apparently worth while

  • Baba

    Mine got suspended as well (cc expired and it wouldn’t take the new cc) I just got off the phone with their helpdesk, and got my account enabled again. All I need now is a prepaid card.

    The best is that my address shows RSA, and I confirmed it. Maybe they didn’t realise that we’re “not supposed” to have Live!

  • Messiah

    hmm, not really what I am looking for πŸ™

  • scratchy

    Maybe I can buy it from you?

  • Nice Job dude, I especially like the Vodacom building in the background. It added a very nice touch.
