GAME British Armed Forces

Published on January 18th, 2012

How’s this for charity? Staff at UK retailer have donated over 250 PlayStation 2 games and consoles to British soldiers deployed in Afghanistan.

“When a Captain in the British Armed Forces calls, you take action!” said the retailer speaking on its Facebook page.

“As you know, we’re all avid gamers at GAME, and many of us have been gaming for a long time. So when the call went out for donations of PS2 games the response was terrific! In a matter of days we had a heaving desk of over 250 games and even some consoles.”

The games were donated by staff at the retailer’s head office, and offered up to soldiers for use on their rest periods.

“This stash has been packed off and is winging its way to Afghanistan as we speak. It is great to be able to support them in this way and we hope it helps. It’s great to get involved.”

GAME’s donation has already attracted criticism from some people, though.

“Tight ass, could have atleast send some xbox’s,” said one person in response.
