Very true and tax relief will increase your donation even more. If you want the games though and would have paid for them anyway this is a great way of donating a tiny bit more than you might otherwise have.

Look, HUD are making Money from this, Apple are making the most, and Sega donating all PROFITS, not sales. I bet the fecking Hedgehog is making money from this.

Just go and drop a few quid in the local red cross box or donate online, rather than boosting Apple's profits and thinking you are making a difference from buying a game.

Yeah true, jailbreak your iphone and download it and donate the entire £2 to red cross.

to be fair sega have already given millions away.

You can donate directly through iTunes to the red cross. There is a link on Apple's homepage or click this iTunes Launcher All the money goes direct to the red cross and it's one less time yo have to give your card details out. :)

Good on them I say. Shame Apple (so far as I know) won't donate their proceeds too, but even half of the sale price going to the disaster fund is better than nothing at all. And despite everybody's altruistic views here, many people aren't going to put money in a tin - those same people might buy a decent game at a reduced price though.

I'm fairly sure Sega are making almost 100% profit from this, it's hardly a big job porting a 15+ year old game and sticking it on the App Store...

Agree - plus the government will make a contribution on top of your donation if you are a UK tax payer...

yeh. lets cut everything including emergency services in this tory bas*ard country and give to others who have more than us , including India!!!!



Have a guess why the Conservative are having to make cuts.....Oh yes.... the debt that Labour left the country.... Some people are so simple minded they think the Conservatives just make cuts for the sake of it.

I prefer to donate my money to the needy. Japan certainly doesn't qualify on that count. The few millions this appeal will generate is almost meaningless to the Billions changing hands daily in Japan.

As bad as it looks and my heart goes out to those affected, in the cold light of day what you have said is true. All those in need should have been moved to inland cities or to the west coast by now. Nobody wants to give up hope and I guess I would dig for as long as I could to find my family but those who can or want to, should be moved.

I feel like I want to help and I donate to charities monthly but Japan is a modern country with big machines and lots of able people to do the work needed. Food and supplies are there and getting distributed by the army etc

a very very sad event that will scar the country for generations to come.

Bought them all. Knowing all the money is going towards the tsunami appeal made me instantly do it.

oh no another one! How many more hot rubbish deals are going to be listed???

just wish I knew where I could find a decent deals site

No wonder my dad stopped posting weeks ago
#26
As a side note these apps have been at this price or lower a number of times before so it's not a hot deal

In the past these sorts of 1 app posts got a lukewarm response now tag on a death or calamity watch these posts get hot

It's probably not meaningless to the 86% of Japanese householders that (admittedly, foolishly) don't have earthquake insurance....

You seem to have missed the point. I was trying to quantify how truly insignificant a few million is compared to the Japanese wealth and economy.

In times of national hardship then wealthy nations are more than capable of dealing with financial matters themselves.

If the Japanese treasury decided to introduce an emergency tax, like ours did via VAT and other austerity measures, then the amount this appeal will raise would be collected within minutes.

Meanwhile, those in less fortunate parts of the world who urgently need assistance are being overlooked.

I do feel very sorry for the incredible level of personal and national disaster they've suffered, but I'm satisfied they're more than capable of managing it financially for themselves. If the figures are to be believed the cost of the disaster will be less than we managed to lend to bail out our banks.

As i said earlier, I prefer to put some thought into who truly needs financial assistance before blindly handing over my money to every cause that unfortunately arises.

But that's just my personal opinion which is all this thread has become. Its certainly nothing to do with a hot deal and given the scale of the disaster i dont have a problem with that. As long as those trying to shout down those who are openly stating they're voting cold understand why some may be doing so - on both counts.

Big Steve deserves it, he provides the platform for this - if it weren't for him the Japs wouldn't get anything.

You realise the Japanese national debt makes ours look like pocket change?

How about you just donate the £2 and leave it at that instead of thinking your act of 'charity' entitles you to download an illegal copy of the game...

No I didn't - because it isn't. How would you quantify 'pocket change' Lets say 1% of their GDP. I bet its not.

But thanks for reiterating what I said about the relatively insignificant amount this promotion will raise.

Anyway, as i said, they need to put measures in place like we have to deal with it. Even more so now.

225.80% of GDP according to the yanks: https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/rankorder/2186rank.html , ours is 76.50% of GDP.....care to rectify your statement now?

Getting quite political here!

Pity Apple don't seem to be donating their 30% (30% btw?!!) but it's still a few £ more than I otherwise would have given. May as well buy this game over another I would have bought, even though its a pretty inefficient way of giving.

Also its on profits, not revenue - I wonder how much of the revenue actually ends up at the red cross...

good deal - I'll be telling my middle child to order what he wants for his ipad when he gets back from school - hot - and all our prayers to those affected.

Do we know that for sure? AFAIK Sega and Capcom have used the term "proceeds" which could be net or gross.

Easy just to blame the Banks and the nasty Torys. Absolve those who were in power and setting the rules and regs of any blame. Or those that borrowed more then they could afford.

"No more boom and bust", don't remember hearing any caveats about worldwide recessions not counting. What I remember is our Government cosying upto the banks and basking in the glory of the boom the banks and their wheeling/dealing generated. Using the boom to grow our public sector either believing their own hype that there would never be a bust or not caring. Ignoring the lack of diversity and mediocre growth in private sector jobs. Many of which we imported foreign workers to fill, rather then dare to tell our NEETs they must take any job anywhere.

And now in opposition, those very same people who were intrinsic in modelling our lopsided and ill functioning economy wash their hands of any blame. Apparently our current path is too fast too deep, but there's little actual solid guidance on what they would cut, just what they wouldn't (pretty much everything). What should we do? Borrow to sustain public services until the next boom and do the equivelant of burying our heads in the sand hoping there will be no more busts?

WRT giving money to others who have more then us, are you truly suggesting Indians have more then us?

While I don't believe we should give any money to the Indian Government which is rife with corruption, I suggest you look at the wealth of India against our country on a per head basis. Even the poorest in the Western World enjoy a standard of life millions in true poverty around the world would consider luxury. Everyone of us is a net wiiner in the capitalist system the world operates under, and I find our protestations of suffering lamentable. As the eastern economies rise I fear we will start to get a taste of what real poverty is (not the peverse definition we currently use, which asserts that anyone earning 60% below national average earnings is suffering from poverty).
