Sony Santa Monica Developer Raffling a PS4 20th Anniversary to Help a Kid with Leukemia

February 22, 2015

If you want to contribute to a good cause and have a chance at a sweet limited edition PS4 20th Anniversary edition, here’s your chance to get two birds with one stone. One of the men behind our favorite games, Sony Santa Monica Senior Technical Artist Richard Greenspan is raffling one of the lovely consoles to encourage gamers to controbute to a 13 year old boy’s fight against Leukemia.

Tyler has been diagnosed with Leukemia (A.L.L.) last November, and has a though battle ahead of him. That kind of battle is debilitating and costly, and Greenspan is calling for help.

In order to participate, you need to donate by 11:59pm on March 31st 2015 on Tyler’s leukemia fund page. After that, you need to forward the donation confirmation e-mail and contact info to: [email protected]. The winner will be chosen at random regardless of the donation amount.


Only residents of the US, Canada and Mexico will be eligible for the prize, but of course there’s no reason why you shouldn’t help out even if you live in other countries.

If you aren’t able to make a donation, you can also help spreading the word on Twitter using the hashtag #YOUvsCANCER.

Greenspan is also looking for other game developers willing to sign the PS4, and he will be available at GDC for the purpose, so if you are a game designer and want to put your signature on this initiative, you can reach out as well.

Gamers have come together many times to achieve great things, and this might very well become another of those uplifting moments. What are you waiting for?

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
