Safe In Our World Team Up With GameBytePosted: 17 Dec 2020
We are thrilled to announce we have teamed up with Gamebyte, who have come up with an innovative way to stand against console resales of the PS5 which has hugely affected the launch for retailers and gamers alike.
GameByte have devised a system to ensure only their real fans can purchase a PS5 from them, by integrating a £1 raffle ticket system in an attempt to remove interference from bots. The proceeds of the raffle will be kindly donated to Safe In Our World to support our ongoing mission to reduce stigma surrounding mental health within the video games industry (and beyond).
In addition to this, GameByte are also looking to introduce a “round-up” system on their GameByte Shop to the nearest GBP, which the excess will be donated to Safe In Our World.
We’re delighted to be working more closely alongside GameByte, as several of their team already support Safe In Our World as ambassadors and support in spreading our awareness within their respective communities.

Social Chain Head of Gaming, Rich White, said: “The problem is that bots can check out much faster than humans, meaning real gamers miss out. It’s an issue that affects almost every retailer, yet a solution like GameByte’s hasn’t been attempted by a UK retailer before – until now.”
GameByte’s newsletter subscribers can purchase a raffle ticket for £1 (limited to one per person) which will enter them into the queue for secure sales of GameByte’s PS5 stock.
Winners will be randomly selected until GameByte’s stock runs out, and those winners will be sent a private link, created just for them, where they can safely purchase their PS5.
Because PS5 stock on the GameByte Shop is limited, the offer is exclusive to GameByte’s newsletter subscribers and not everyone will be selected on the first round. Anyone hoping to get their hands on a PS5 can sign up here to be kept up to date.
