sceh.jpgIf you’ve been keeping up with world news you may have heard of the Sichuan earthquake, which devastated a region of China last week. Individuals and corporations throughout Asia have been pitching in with donations including Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong. The branch put together auctions on eBay Hong Kong (which appear to be their first) for autographed PlayStation Network cards and other merchandise. All proceeds go to World Vision Hong Kong.


Here are the items available:


PLAYSTATION®Network prepaid card ($150) signed by Kazunori Yamauchi, producer of “Gran Turismo 5 Prologue” and a lanyard


PLAYSTATION®Network prepaid card ($200) signed by Katsuhiro Harada, producer of “Tekken 5 DR Online” and a Tekken 6 folder


“Eye of Judgment Biolith Rebellion Set 2.0 Expansion Pack” signed by Kazuhito Miyaki, producer of “Eye of Judgment” and a special gift


PLAYSTATION®Network prepaid card ($100) signed by Tsutomu Kouno, producer of “LocoRoco” and a LocoRoco umbrella


PLAYSTATION®Network prepaid card ($200) signed by model Angelababy


PLAYSTATION®Network prepaid card ($200) signed by singer Chelsea Tong


PLAYSTATION®Network prepaid card ($200) signed by actress Niki Chou


The denominations are in Hong Kong dollars. So, you're essentially spending $20 USD for PlayStation Network credit and a signed Gran Turismo 5: Prologue card since there are no bidders yet. Also there are multiple signed items. Four Gran Turismo 5: Prologue cards, five LocoRoco umbrella bundles and five Tekken packages. Unfortunately, you need to physically be in Hong Kong to claim any of the items which rules out international participants. Still, it’s pretty amazing to see Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong gather these items so quickly.


I wonder if Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong was saving all of these signed PlayStation Network cards for a rainy day…

    It’s nice to see HK Sony doing something creative for part of the Sichuan earthquake donation. Too bad it’s strictly limited to HK residents, which makes sense since they are the ones to spend HK dollar PSN tickets.

    That guy in the saru panda suit!! I want a plush like that, very cute. The girl too :)
