  4. Evan, Evan, he’s our man! If he can’t do it, we’ll hire a high-power attorney who will find some legal loophole to sue you guys into giving me all the next gen consoles, at least 10 titles of my choosing and a lifetime supply of turkish delight sweets.

  12. “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!

  13. 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*

  14. 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! :)

    Thank you EVAN for this opportunity to win a xbox one. I am forever in your debt. Thanks for the xbox one. I really appreciate it.

  21. Jonathan Strauss

    Evan……I sincerely want to thank you on behalf of all the Gamers in South Africa that really can’t afford to be part of the New Generation. I want to thank you for making it possible to own a XBOX ONE and be part of a universe that allot of people don’t understand. a universe that gives us the opportunity to be part of something bigger….to be part of a world where you don’t have to explain who you are…..all you have to do is show up and be the best that you can be…..escape to our forbidden paradise…….IT REALLY MEANS MORE THAN YOU WILL EVER KNOW..Thanks

  22. Matt

    What a ledgend Evan Saunders, a true nerd giving all nerds to opportunity of a lifetime :) I thank you a million times and more!

  23. 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

  24. 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).

  25. 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.

  26. 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.

  27. 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 :)

  28. Peter

    Thank you master Evan,i will be forever grateful and will bow at your knees if the force is with me and lady luck grant me the chance to play with this powerful beast and overcome the enemies that rule the game world. Long live king Evan Saunders!

  33. Riyaadh

    Thanks Evan….How about sharing some of that next gen graphics with a bro that’s in need of it! #NoBudgetForNextGenConsole #Broke #Desperate lol :’)

  34. Evan,

    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!

  35. 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.

  36. 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…

  37. sean

  39. Jonathan Strauss
