The catastrophe in Japan is affecting everyone, including the gaming community. Companies have already started to donate millions of dollars to aid Japan and there doesn’t seem to be any lack of donations in the future.
If you want to help, there are a few things you can do thanks to some of your favorite websites and developers.
Through tomorrow, for every game purchased through Direct2Drive, the company will donate $1 to Japanese disaster relief. Many companies (a full list can be found here) will even match that donation. Bungie is currently selling a special blue “Japan Quake Relief 2011” wristband, the proceeds of which go directly to the Red Cross.They’re baby blue and will look really cool on you! Possibly the most charitable choice, Sony has added anoption to PSN that allows you to donate directly from your PlayStation Wallet. It’s in the “Aid Japan” section under “New Releases.
I plan on buying a couple of those wristbands from Bungie. What are you going to get?
