>Japan Crisis: The Industry

12 03 2011

>At 2:46PM local time, a massive 8.8 magnitude earthquake hit the coast just of Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. After that followed large walls of water, which battered down on Japan, as well as serious aftershocks.
But how has this affected the gaming and technology industry?


Were the developers affected by the earthquake and tsunami?

There have been no reports of building destruction that affected the gaming and technology industry after the tsunami and earthquake.

Are the developers doing anything to help?

They sure are. Nintendo are giving away ¥300,000,000, SEGA is donating ¥200,000,000, Namco Bandai is giving ¥100,000,000, while Tecmo Koei are donating ¥10,000,00 to the Japanese Red Cross. Apart from a ¥300,000,000 donation, Sony will give out 30,000 radios to people affected.
