Isn't it amazing how video games have sold more DVD's! Great news for Gamers and finally real facts to prove it too. Bare in mind that most people would read this and say that "Somebodies getting paid big bucks here too", true madness.

Honestly in my opinion, I hope that some of the money goes to the government research to help Global warming and maybe to help fix some of the debt in this world. Recently in 11th March 2010, Japan had a earthquake and tsunami. Immediately I thought, video gaming companies around the world should help Japan. Think about it a minute...
Street Fighter is from Japan... and been around since August 1987. Truly and an amazing game with hours of fun.
Trust me you will see a long list of video games that have a massive influence from Japan. Wouldn't it be fantastic idea for England to put label's mentioning, "5p will go to Japanese Red Cross" in front of Japanese games? I how this might sound insane but its been proven that video games are a hot item to buy. Even with Call of Duty Black Ops, a winner of 2011 BAFTA and the sales were rocking everywhere around the world.
