Street Fighter and Sonic for iPhone on sale, all proceeds donated to Japan relief

iOS gamers: You can now do your part to donate to Red Cross for Tsunami relief efforts in Japan by downloading any Sonic the Hedgehog title and/or Street Fighter IV for iPhone or the iPod touch. Sega’s games include Sonic Spinball ($0.99), Sonic the Hedgehog ($1.99), Sonic the Hedgehog 2 ($2.99), and Sonic the Hedgehog 4th Episode 1 ($3.99) — 100% of the proceeds from any downloads through March 20th will be given to Red Cross’ Disaster Relief in Japan. Similarly, Capcom cut the price of Street Fighter IV to $0.99, and all of revenues from downloads through March 22 will be given to charity in Japan. We haven’t had a chance to play any of the Sonic titles, but we’ll be downloading a few today. Street Fighter IV takes us back to our Sega days, though, and it’s definitely worth a download. Hadouken! More →

T-Mobile assists Haitian relief effort by offering free calling to and from Haiti, donating wireless equpiment

t-mobile-logoWhile the world’s attention is glued to the small island nation of Haiti and the struggles of its inhabitants as they cope with the aftermath of a catastrophic earthquake, it is nice to see at least one of our wireless carriers stepping up to the plate to offer much needed assistance. T-Mobile USA came forward and is offering its customers free international long distance calls to and from Haiti from January 12th, 2010 through January 31, 2010. T-Mobile is also pledging to donate much needed wireless equipment, including generators and wireless phones, to help restore Haiti’s communications infrastructure. Any wireless customer can contribute to the relief effort by texting the term “HAITI” to “90999″ and a $10 donation will be given automatically to the Red Cross.The $10 will be applied to your wireless bill and T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless and AT&T are waiving all text messaging charges for these donations. Donations of $5 can similarly be given to a relief fund set up by Haitian-born musician Wyclef Jean by texting “YELE” to 501501. Get those fingers flying folks and help out those in Haiti who are in great need. Full press release is after the break. More →
