Thank you From Xbox One UK

A big thank you to everyone who joined us on our live stream for Gamesblast 16, and a MASSIVE THANK YOU to all who donated. Our original £400 target was smashed! At the time or writing this article, our total is sitting at a whopping £1150.


Don’t forget that you can still donate here:- Please give us a visit and donate what ever you can. All money raised is going to Special Effect. A Charity that helps disabled people to benefit from video games.



We’re putting fun and inclusion back into the lives of people with physical disabilities by helping them to play video games and access communication and leisure technology.

We’re all GameBlasting our hearts out to level the playing field for gamers with disabilities!

It’s GameBlast16, the UK’s biggest gaming for good weekend, an amazing event that helps SpecialEffect transform the lives of people like Ceyda.

As for us, we started our Gamesblast adventure at 9am on Saturday 27th Feb. Streaming live via twitch ,everyone here had an amazing time raising money for such a good cause. We had 10 streamers playing a variety of different games including: Titanfall, Black Ops 3, Destiny and World Of Tanks to name but a few. Also included for your enjoyment were a set of ‘special forfeits’ to be completed when certain ongoing totals were reached.

MasterJediObi1 had to sing a song whilst wearing a delightful sparkly silver dress, we later learned in the stream that it was one of his wives best dresses as she popped into give him a telling off… comedy gold just there. The song was chosen by anyone who donated £10 or more. (The Cha Cha slide was an amazing choice by one viewer). To egg roulette for MrHonestGamer who ended up covered in raw egg and whipped cream! That was such a popular forfeit he had to limit the self egging due to lack of eggs as he never expected it to be so popular.

We had giveaways galore all the way through the stream, with all the items having been donated from different gaming sources. We had prizes from T-shirts all the way up to Turtlebeach headsets, and we gave it all away to people in the chat.

The editorial team here at Xbox One UK would like to thank our streamers for their commitment and hard work towards this amazing cause.

And once again a big Thank You to every one who donated from everyone here at Xbox One UK
