Nintendo gives quake victims the gift of games

Nintendo of Japan has been quite generous to victims of the Japanese earthquake and subsequent tsunami that occurred this March to the tune of $3.6 million. Nintendo has been mum on the subject of other such donations, detailing that they did not feel that they should show their actions off to the world, and have a policy of not involving the media. A member of the Japanese Hachimaki Blog has posted what some of those donations were.

Nintendo has donated a number of DSi units with the DS Terebi attachment included with the system. The DS Terebi is a TV tuner cabable of receiving 1seg television broadcasts, enabling the quake victims quick access to local news broadcasts.

It’s great to see big companies like Nintendo still giving the the victims in their home country. Hopefully they feel generous enough to give a little to foreign countries as well.
