Xbox One Giveaway! – Merry Christmas

I know that Christmas can be tough on your wallet… And I know that not everybody can afford a proper gaming console. So I thought I’d chip in and try to change that! ?

So, with the help of the legends over at Xbox South Africa, we have a brand spanking new 1TB Xbox One to giveaway, and we’ll make sure that you get it in time for Christmas! UPDATE: They also said they’ll throw in a copy of FIFA 17, too!

Gaming is something that I spend a lot of time doing. I wrote a very emotional piece about giving my Xbox 360 away when the One came out, and video games have played a huge role in my life for many, many years.

However, I also know that I’m lucky that I can afford to game. It’s an expensive hobby and just the console itself – not even the games etc. – can make it an unattainable one for many. Especially in a country like South Africa.

“Gaming is an expensive hobby that not everyone can afford to do…”

If you add that to the fact that Christmas is tough for me being away from home and my family, I decided that I wanted to try and make somebody’s festive period a little bit more special, and that’s where Xbox came in.


Well, thanks to them this is actually happening! I’ve got this console to giveaway to one lucky winner, and it’s SUPER easy to enter. There are basically just three steps.

  1. Follow @XboxZA and myself (@YesWeCrann) on Twitter.
  2. Decide which game you would buy first if you won.
  3. Tweet us and tell us using the #CranntaClaus hashtag so that we can find you 🙂

Your tweet should look a little bit like this:
“Yo @XboxZA & @YesWeCrann!! Make my Xmas by hooking me up with a new #XboxOne. My first game would be *insert game here*!!! #CranntaClaus”

That’s literally how easy it is. It’s one entry per Twitter account, and I’ll announce a winner next Monday. It doesn’t matter if this is for yourself, or you want to try win it for a family member or friend, I just want to hook somebody up with a console that – in my opinion – is the best out there at the moment. Good luck, and Merry Christmas.

Oh, and I also wanted to add that this is also a thank you to all 50,000+ of you that follow me on Twitter. I couldn’t let that milestone pass without giving something back could I?

  1. Thank you for this awesome opportunity to join the World of Xbox Gaming. In its 15 years of existence here in South Africa I never had an opportunity to even get close to touching an Xbox Console. I admired from afar, watch videos of gameplay, interviews, new titles and tech. You dont know how much i will be praying until you make the Winner announcement. ?? Good Luck to everybody.

  2. Woooooow, what an amazing initiative by Joe Crann and XboxSA for a possible opportunity to make me a winner of the brand new XboxOne…I’ve always played Xbox360 with my neighbor who owns one but still can’t beat me.After winning it I’d give him more tricks on how to win a match and make him realize he needs to own XboxOne too..

  3. I have a friend who has a Xbox 360 but I have never had a console (budget problems and other things) this would be a great opportunity to get into the fun
