As of the 31st of March, 2011, PSN users have been able to get together and raise over $1.3 million to help those affected by the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami disaster.

The PS3 section of the store has been offering custom themes to those who have donated money. The relief fund donation services are still available in 40 countries.

The money will be going to their respective regions. For North America, the American Red Cross - Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Fund. For Europe, the British Red Cross and for Japan and the Asian region, the Central Community Chest of Japan, better known as the Red Feather Community Chest Movement.

President of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc, Kazuo Hirai, said: "We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to those affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake,"

"While we continue to make every effort to help the recovery of the affected communities in the region, I would like to express our gratitude to every single PlayStation user across the world who made a contribution to the effort."
