Sports Interacive have announced that one weeks sales revenue from the Football Manager handheld app will be donated to the Japan quake, starting Friday, the day of the quake . £6.99 may sound like a lot for an app (for all i know the game could be rubbish) but its worth every penny knowing its going to help those who currently need it the most.

Shame the games awful...

There is no consistency to results, for example I'm playing with Crawley Town and just beat Everton 4-1 in the FA Cup, yet lose to the mighty Kidderminster the match after 5-0.

The update improved things a bit, but if you can stand being one year out of date then seriously, get 2010 instead...

Sounds like your players were badly managed my friend, you should of said the right things to your players after a result like that in the cup. Then again before your league game. Seriously though, teams like Wolverhampton Wanderers have managed to be inconsistent all season, clubbing the major European heavyweights like defenseless seal pups, then quickly wilting like reduced flowers when faced by small clubs.

Football manager 2011 is the pinnacle in football management gaming. I voted hot right away not because the price of the app but because of where the proceeds end up.

heat added. this is better than the streetfighter post purely because its a larger donation. i bought the streetfighter game then went redcross.org to make another donation as it didnt seem like i havd done enough. ordered this as well so feel iv done what i can. will give the game a go now, love football manager!
#11
All proceeds go to the earthquake relief? So Apple has agreed to donate their 30%?
#12
Apparently no android version is in developement, and no current plans to (as of december last year)

IMO, they can't ignore it forever, I give it another year or so and I reckon they'll be a (probably far inferior) version available.

If it's just to make a donation, they'll get more if you donate direct, no mention of Apple not getting their cut on this, nor the taxman.

If you find a direct way like http://www.savethechildren.org.uk/en/japan-earthquake-and-tsunami-appeal.htm or http://www.redcross.org.uk/Donate-Now/Make-a-single-donation/Japan-Tsunami-Appeal they may be able to claim the tax back too.

If you want to donate to the Japan earthquake appeal do it direct, don't let apple skim off their share first: http://www.redcross.org.uk/Donate-Now/Make-a-single-donation/Japan-Tsunami-Appeal
What has happened in Japan is honorific, there are people experiencing extreme hardship in the country, but lets be honest until relativity recently Japan was the second richest country in the world, its citizens will be looked after by their wealthy government, the odd 59p isn't going to make much off a difference.
If you want to make a difference with a small donation give to Unicef, millions of children die for easily preventable disease's every year, it costs literally pennies to immunise them.

Right on the Apple cut, wrong on the taxman. Charitable donations are quite tax efficient for firms! Although you obviously can't add gift add like you could if you donated individually.

That said, 'donating' and getting something of benefit yourself seems like a good compromise for all involved.

The app has a lowly 2.5 star rating, and is in fierce competition with Championship Manager. This smells like a promotion, trying to get more downloads and ratings off the back of the destruction in Japan, making Apple richer in the process (at least Microsoft donated $100k, Apple just set up an iTunes gift-card allowing people to donate themselves).
#18
Where there is a charity, there is a scammer lining their own pockets!! The Salvation Army are the latest to be found out!!! Sad day, but I never give to charity. I do my bit by paying my taxes, then the government can give to poorer (sometimes so-called poorer) countries etc.

Proceeds means money after commission. So, no. But that doesn't mean Apple aren't donating elsewhere.

mkr
at least Microsoft donated $100k

I wouldn't be surprised if the Japanese find that amount of money insulting. Considering how much Japan has helped Microsoft, the ratio between $100k and how much Microsoft earns per day is pretty staggering.

NOT always true besides the Salvation Army thing is not a scammer, maybe not as ethical but NOT a scammer

Of course it's a promotion, but why suggest that Microsoft put their donation forward out of good will? Microsoft, or at least their Bing team, donated the $100k as a result of a botched campaign to market themselves via Twitter in the wake of the Japan disaster.
It was supposed to be $1 for every retweet, up to 100k, but they had an overwhelming response calling them attention whores abusing the situation to promote themselves, and had requests to just donate the damn money rather than wait for retweets.

Agreed, this amount is small change anyway... Just a percentage of their marketing allowance I expect.

Microsoft have pledged at least $2m so far, though some of that will be in services.

as great as these pledges are, Japan is a very wealthy nation. I probably missed them, but i didn't see much promotion of any similar pledges to victims of the New Zealand earthquake, victims of the civil war in Libya etc

Yeah but everybody loves the Japanese. Just wait for our country to be hit by some terrible natural disaster that is going to cost hundreds of billions to fix. The rest of the world will suddenly change their foreign aid policies and have a good chuckle. That is what the Eurovision song contest voting suggests anyway. Our recent involvement in an illegal war hasn't helped our cause, raping countries the world over during our Empire era, that might be partially to blame too. The Japs gave us Tamagotchi's, Hello Kitty, Takeshi Castle and Mr Myagi. We could learn a lot from them... Wax on, wax off, wax on, wax off.

Terrible disaster, Japan maybe rich but it's the common man that suffers, in that respect the Japanese need help and assistance from the international aid charities which are funded by the generous.

What a mad comment. I am Chinese and frankly find your comment insulting. How can you state everyone of a certain nationality hates everyone else???

It's about time you got rid of your stereotypical, racist bigotry views! I never knew people outside the BNP still had attitudes in this day & age. Maybe you are BNP.

sorry but no - 7 quid for a game that will be 60p one day - ill pass. it might be good for the japan appeal, but people are getting ripped off. and yeah apple take a bigger slice than the 60p streetfighter iv costs, so get that.

60p, you'll be lucky, afterall Football Manager Handheld 2010 didn't drop below £2.99 even when the 2011 version came out! Too many people expect to pay 59p for top games these days, £6.99 is still a great price. I can remember buying Streetfighter 2 for the SNES for £65 when it came out!

Surely a direct donation would be a lot better!

Going to start a new deal where everyone in HUKD can put £6.99 into my PayPal account and I'll give a proportion of it away as a charitable donation....and pocket the rest.*

*Of course I'm not, but I'm not sure how this differs from giving the money to Apple.

Sega and Capcom are Japanese companies though I think? If they are then it makes perfect sense, surely.

Good cause, but, shouldn't we worry about the mess of our own country first before helping others.
