CNN: Microsoft Gives Xbox 360s to Benefit Low Income & Spanish-Speaking Families

As the Spanish-speaking population rises, the language is becoming increasingly visible in the U.S. video game market.

As reported by CNN/Money, a Microsoft press release notes that more than 200 games offering both English and Spanish are being offered nationwide. To mark the occasion, Microsoft is giving back to the community a bit. From the press release:

"Microsoft Corp. is making a donation for the benefit of Spanish-speaking and low-income families. Every community service center on Skid Row in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California operated by the nonprofit organization Para Los Ninos is being equipped with two Xbox 360 Arcade consoles that include five games, a wireless controller, a 256MB memory unit and parental controls to help parents or caregivers monitor use of the console."

DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH BILL GATES GIVES TO CHARITIES, POOR AND YOU NAME IT. HE IS SOME ONE THAT ACTUALLY TRIES. LOOK SOMETIMES WHEN YOUR THAT BROKE YOU JUST WANT TO JAM SOME GAMES. I'M SURE THEY ALSO GOT DONATION FROM MICROSOFT BEFORE. HOW MANY BILLIONS DID HE GIVE BY THE WAY?
AGAIN HOW MUCH HAS SONY GIVEN, NOTHING THATS WHY THEY SUCK, THERE NOT AMERICAN PRODUCTS AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOUR SELF.
GO STAND IN THE CORNER. ANY DONATION IS A GOOD ONE.

I agree, instead they gonna learn how to become expert shooter from all that training they'll get from FPS games

ironwolf3378d ago

I'll pay attention to your remarks.

segasage3378d ago (Edited 3378d ago )

when did Sony daonate to charity?

They ofcourse continue to feed LIES the ungreatful Trolls they have created with their last 2 gen consoles.

Kinetix3378d ago

If it was Sony doing this i bet most of us would say the same thing, the point is x360's? why not sandwiches instead? And "ingles sin barreras" LOL

Kuest3377d ago

is MS a SANDWICH company?

No, they're a SOFTWARE company, an so the majority of charity donated by said company is likely to be software related. Whether or not the kids are getting enough sandwiches (do Mexicans typically eat sandwiches?- just a question), is beyond MS's control. The fact that they even BOTHERED to donate a $400 product for FREE... Like I said, use some sense. MS is clearly doing those families a favor, and you would be smart to just acknowledge the company's contribution.

By the way, what other companies donated to the family?

gives computers and software to schools and public libraries all over the country, and provides millions of dollars annually for vacinations and medical care for children in the third world.
