The British Red Cross has thanked PlayStation users for their "amazing contribution" to the Japanese earthquake appeal, which has raised a total of £466,465.60.
In a statement, republished on the Euro PlayStation blog, the organisation said the money would help over a quarter of a million of those worst affected by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami.
Specifically, the Japanese Red Cross will provide cash grants "to victims who have lost immediate family members; families whose homes were destroyed by the earthquake, tsunami or resulting fires; families whose homes were severely damaged; and households who have been required to evacuate".
Sony gave PSN users the opportunity to make a donation in the aftermath of the earthquake, which struck on 11th March.
As the Red Cross notes: "More than 13,000 people have been confirmed dead so far and 14,000 are still missing or unaccounted for".
