PSN raises $1m+ for Japan aid fund

A Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief fund made available by Sony over the PlayStation Network has raised around $1.3m.

Established last month, the campaign allowed anyone logging into PSN to donate a sum to charity from the PlayStation Store wallet.

All the money raised has been given to the American Red Cross, British Red Cross and Japan’s Central Community Chest.

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by Great East Japan Earthquake,” SCE boss Kaz Hirai stated.

While we continue to make every effort to help the recovery of the affected communities in the region, I would like to express our gratitude to every single PlayStation user across the world who made a contribution to the effort.”
