Sega’s App Store Sale Raises $250K for Japan Relief

by March 29, 2011

Incredible Numbers from iOS Users

On Monday, Sega revealed the final tally from a recent special sale it held on iOS enabled devices two weeks ago.  All proceeds from that sale were to benefit the Red Cross, and in turn benefit the displaced from the major earthquake and tsunami that ravaged Japan earlier in the month.

“The proceeds from the sale generated over $250,000, all of which will be donated directly to the Red Cross for its Japanese relief efforts,” said Sega’s Julian Mehlfeld in the release.  “SEGA wishes to thank everyone who participated in the sale for their support.”

The sale included discounts on Sonic 1, 2, and Sonic 4: Episode I, as well as Football Manager.  With Sega’s ongoing Ebay auctions as part of the Play for Japan initiative, the company stands to add $10,000 or more to that total when all is said and done.
