Nintendo Universe writes: As the recovery efforts continue across Japan, Konami have today posted an open letter from creator of the renowned Metal Gear Solid series, Hideo Kojima, regarding the disaster.
Is there anything this guy can't do?? Edit:Out of curiosity how many people from this site have helped japan in anyway they can?? @below exactly we need more developers like him. @Larvanian anything helps even if it's a little bit.
I gave £10 through PSN. I wanted to give more but I couldn't since I went over my monthly spending limit.
"Edit:Out of curiosity how many people from this site have helped japan in anyway they can??" I helped organize a drive with a large group of other people. We've raised about $200 in one day. And tomorrow will be day 2.
I sent $30 to the Red Cross..
I donated 60$ thru red cross and amazons help japan. my university raised over 1000$ in one week and the 70 Japanese exchange students are helping us to find out what else we can do. last year my school raised about 10k for Hatti in 1 month. we are planning events and things everything goes to Japan.
I gave £7 through psn,planing to give more as soon as I get money on the topic: kojima always amaze me
I was only able to donate $5 through PSN :( I'll try to donate more as time goes on
My friend's family was evacuated (he has to stay as he's in the Navy) and they're living with me free of charge. Does that count? ^^ Oh, and I bought that theme from PSN for $10.
I spent my weekly entertainment budget on a red cross donation. I'm waiting to hear back on a summer job right now, and I'll definitely give more if that comes through.
and last years flooding in Nashville, i've seen the goodness there is in people and plan to donate 10 over psn when i get paid, also sending in can goods at work... which helps as fear of food contamination grows my thoughts are with the Japanese rightnow
I donated $25, planning on sending more.
I gave 5 over PSN. Will be giving more when I get paid.
$50 on PSN
Same here I bought the $50 PSN Theme, the only thing that got me was why there is a tax for making a chartible contribution to a non-profit organization.
@GodsHand Its a glitch with PSN. The tax is automatically refunded back into your wallet. >.>
@ Axecution Thanks for the info, I guess I should my PSN wallet, I guess I can use that to rent a movie or something.
Protoype- It doesn't matter how much you donate its the fact you did. You should be proud of that not everyone has money to give to others and im sure if you donated 50000000 or 5 they would appreciate it all the same. Good job.
First I donated $5 since that's all I can give at the time, now I will be donating $25 on PSN. I was actually planning on visiting Japan before this happened.
I started a fundraiser in my school so far we got $200 dollars that will be donated to the Red Cross of Japan.
I gave £5 through PSN, i would of gave more but i haven't got that much money at the moment. Have to give credit to Sony though, good to see them supporting Japan through the PS3.
I gave £20 through PSN. I'm planning on donating again in april.
If everyone just gives what little they can, it will help. Do not be ashamed of small donations... they add up and give massive amounts of relief to those in need. I encourage everyone to give, even if just a little is all you can do. @ARIJayden below - Thank you for your contribution, it means a lot to those in need, people you don't even know and you are willing to give. Don't pay attention to naysayers, I hope that you are blessed in return for your giving. @Dno (way below) - you can donate on PSN by finding the "Aid Japan" button. It has several preset dollar amounts where you can choose how much you want to give. I think you can give up to $50 in one transaction. Nice letter from Kojima, you all should read it. It pleases me to see so many give unselfishly. I am in good company today here on N4G.
Poor Japan the footage of the tsunami was horrific so much destruction, hope it doesn't take too long too rebuild it all.
They can rebuild the lands.. but not the people who died.
I Donated £20 Through PSN, am happy to see playstation giving people an easy way to donate for japan, i really hpe they recover very soon, we should be getting together the whole world to look out for each other cause natural disasters are only going to get worse, so instead of wars with each other we should be helping each other out to keep the human race survive though the harseness of natural disasters.
Damn, I feel sorry for that girl in your avatar I really do. Hey you...get your hands off her!
thats my wife your talking about, and i dont understand why u guys are disagreeing with what am saying, am a physician and study the world and natural disasters and what am saying is true. you guys must be too young to understand anything am saying. and anubnis i feel sorry for you.. am happy married with my wife living happily whereas ur just a sad little boy commenting stupidness on the internet.
Amen Kojima, amen.
I donated $50 to the Canadian Red Cross... that's all I could afford with the budget I have (I'm only a student afterall).
WTF!? im sorry, but why would anyone disagree with you? you donated $50 to help out and ppl dont like it? so i guess there are people out there who disagree with helping a nation in crisis... wow kudos to you man, once i get paid i plan to give some through PSN too. our thoughts are with them.
Is it such a surprise that people would disagree? Look around, bro .. Look at all the hate, in the world. Terrorists wanna kill everyone; racists hate everyone but them. So on and so forth, people are jealous and people gonna hate. That's mankind. It's ridiculous to think that, but it's the truth. No matter how pathetic that sounds, it is 100% the complete truth.
Oh wow... people actually did disagree. I guess $50 isn't enough to them :( Well, thanks for the kind words though.
They might have disagreed to the fact that 50 dollars isn't a lot. Maybe... Even though you never actually said that. Yeah i dont get it ever haha. Props though man, 50 dollars is a lot.
i wish i could donate a lumpsum of money....but it sucks cause im currently not working, really hope japan could get back on their feet.
Japanese people have endured hard times before and lived to prosper. I wish them the best of luck with rebuilding their homes and overcoming their losses...
I need to get money on my PSN account at the end of the month so i can donate.
Omg.. that's wrong, but funny. I'm sorry, now I feel like crap for laughing
....i dont think he was joking. xD You can donate through PSN.
oh wow now I really feel dumb... lol now that's funny. Seriously I plan on donating but it's won't be much. No job at the moment :(
I was gonna buy a 10p mix but i donated it to them poor bastardos.
thats not even funny have a heart!!!!
wow how do you give money on PSN?
i've always wanted to visit japan, it's so sad this happened, my heart gand £5 goes out to them, sorry i couldn't afford more at the moment
Don't feel bad if you send little cash. Anything helps and makes a difference. Also don't forget about Haiti, which is one of the poorest countries on earth.
I'm glad you guys on this site donated to Japan and I hope you keep doing so for at least the next few months and don't just stop with a one time donation. Just a question though, how many of you donated to the earthquake that happened in Afghanistan a while back? Or Pakistan? Or even somehow help the Palestinians who's food supply is controlled by Israhell? Just wondering.
