    “Evan – The Poem”.

    Evan Saunders is a champion of men
    He provides consoles that are of the next-gen
    Winning on the behalf of others is all in a days work,
    for this hero of the people (who is a bit of a quirk)

    Evan’s might started all but now
    When he was just a little tike
    he didn’t mind to share his bike

    ….or be a total jirk and punch Jarrod.

    Much like the heroes of our youth,
    Batman, Spider-Man or even Babe Ruth
    He watches over those who needs his help a ton.
    With a sandwich, a hug or even an XboxOne.

    But Evan Saunders need not wear a mask or a cape
    Since he doesn’t mind showing his face going on a hot date.

    So, be watchful of our unmasked hero.
    Know that we are grateful
    And good luck with that date ya’ foo!

  23. dubbelgeesreview

    Thanks Evan for winning on our behalf. You’re the best Saunders I know, even better than that old Colonel – Xbox is much better than a streetwise 2 box! And the winner is…… *Drum(stick) roll*

  24. Isak Burger

    Oh Evan you’re so fine, you’re so fine, you blow my mind, hey Evan! I still have the original XBox, not even the 360 and I’m desperate for an upgrade! Thanks man!

  25. Jade

    would LOVE to win a Xbox for my boyfriend its his birthday on the 19th of October and i know he’d LOVE one! Please make his dream come true Evan Saunders! :)

  42. Vimal Sardar

    Evan, thanks for winning this on our behalf! You seriously rock. On a side note, my wife joined me at the raAge expo this past weekend. We spent quite a bit of time at the Xbox One stall. I, jokingly, asked her if we need to upgrade our console. She looked at me, said “Yes” and went back to watching the dance game on show. I’m still not sure if she is more interested in Dance Central 4 or Mortal Combat X

  43. Grant Falconer

    Evan, I would like to personally thank you for accepting the winning of the xbox one on my behalf, as sadly I could not be there as you all know. You seriously are an awesome guy and you truly and honestly have my thanks. This means a lot to me as I write this because i have been a fan of xbox for as long as i can remember and i would just like to thank all my fans for allowing me to win this. (Please note, i know i haven’t actually won, just being creative).

  44. Shawn

    Evan, you are the hero South African gamers deserve. You’re not just our hero. You’re a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A winner on our behalf. A dark knight.

  45. Lood du Plessis

    There once was a fine guy called Evan
    who was sent like manna form heaven
    He won an Xbox
    and unlike some jocks
    he agreed to give it away as a present!

    Thank you. Dankie. Ngiyabonga. Enkosi. Siyabonga kakulu. Ke a leboga. Ke a leboha. Ndi a livhuwa. Ndzi khense ngopfu.

  46. Sora (@Fidathedreamer)

    Thanks Evan Saunders! A gamer living in a pixelated dream desires to wake up with new textures and higher resolutions. Send that Xbox my way :)

  47. Peter

  55. Dian Loubser


    I can’t thank you enough for winning this for me. From one gamer, I assume, to another, I just wanted to thank for for keeping the reality of gaming alive.
    We both love Microsoft’s Xbox series and I would very much appreciate it if you could have a word with them on my behalf and thank them as much as, well you’ll know what to say.

    Thank you goodnight much love!

  56. Allan cooper

    I could really do with one of these to entertain the kids and grand kids when they visit. Goes without saying that my wife and myself will enjoy it when they’re not here.

  57. inn3rs3lf

    You know, I’ve come back just to add something…
    Evan, you won the Xbox One for your own personal pleasure, yet decided to give it up for in order for them to do the exact same as you…pay it forward. This is something we are lacking on so many levels. So, on behalf of the whole community here at FOS, THANK YOU! Thank you for putting yourself aside and giving one of us the chance to experience next-gen gaming whereas we would never have been able to.

    I hopefully will be able to do the same one day…
