Update: With close to 3,000 entries, this contest as a tough one for our judging panel. Reading through your reasons why you (or a loved one) deserved a console was equal parts heartwarming and gutwrenching; in the end, we wish we had an endless, magical budget that could offer up a console for everyone!
Before we get to the winner, I personally want to thank each and every one of you trusting Stevivor enough to confide in us and share such personal stories.
Sadly, we can only give one console away, and that honour goes to Luke Hancock from Fitzroy North, VIC! Please check your email, Luke, for next steps.
Again, thank you so much to everyone who entered!
Update 2: We’ve got two additional Xbox Game Pass codes that have been awarded to the following people:
- Jenna R. of Green Valley, NSW
- Christina B. of Drewvale, QLD
Please check your emails and let us know if you can use the Xbox Game Pass code — if not, we’ll redraw as needed until the codes are claimed.
Original story: We get it, everyone — the holidays are hard, both emotionally and financially. With that in mind, we here at Stevivor thought we’d help lighten the load with a special giveaway!
We’re prepared to bankroll one lucky reader ahead of the hectic holiday season, providing them a console of their choice from the following list:
- Nintendo Switch
- Nintendo Switch Lite
- Xbox One S
- PS4 Slim
Yeah, we’re not offering up a PC, a PS4 Pro or an Xbox One X ’cause our budget isn’t endless (sorry). That said, we still think the available prize pool is pretty sweet!
To enter to win the contest, tell us in 25 words or less: why are you deserving of the console of your choice this holiday season? The sky’s the limit — it could be for yourself or as a gift for someone else; we’re looking for creativity and above all else, a compelling reason to pick your entry!

As a bonus, we’ve also reached out to publishers to see if they can’t sweeten the pot with some games to add on top of the console; we’ll likely have runner-up prizes too, but we’ll update the contest when that’s confirmed.

Good luck and thanks for reading Stevivor!
