Sony Online Entertainment Raising Japan Relief Funds Through In-Game Microtransactions


If you’re a PC MMO player and are still looking for a way to contribute to the Japan earthquake and tsunami recovery effort, Sony Online Entertainment has an option for your consideration.

If you play EverQuest, EverQuest II, EverQuest II Extended, Free Realms, Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures, Magic: The Gathering – Tactics, Star Wars Galaxies and/or PoxNora, you can purchase a Cherry Blossom in-game item (or other alternate items) to place in your virtual avatar home, and for every special item sold between today and Monday, March 28, SOE will donate $10 to the American Red Cross.
