FIFA 11 Ultimate Team Raises $500,000 For Japan Quake Relief

EA FIFA campaign raises half a million in relief- it's amazing what video gamers do when they unite

If readers recall, we posted numerous different methods for gamers and techies to help out in the relief effort following the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami tragedy of March.


Electronic Arts proudly announced today on their blog that their
FIFA Ultimate Team Relief Effort
raised half a million dollars for the victims and survivors in Japan.


This is no small feat, considering the effort initiative only lasted 24 hours. (Virtual) Football (re: American Soccer) Players around the world united and bought lots of collectible player packs. I would be critical of the means used to mount this campaign if I weren't so damn proud.


We'll keep you updated on the success and progress of other campaigns on which we've reported as the come along. Feel free to tip us!
