Sony Stops All Playstation Sales in Russia
Like so many other global companies, Sony is now taking responsibility and stopping all Playstation sales in Russia immediately. This includes both hardware, software and the Playstation store, which was announced on Twitter in an official statement.
“Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) joins the global community in calling for peace in Ukraine. We have suspended all software and hardware shipments, the launch of Gran Turismo 7, and operations of the PlayStation Store in Russia. To support humanitarian aid, Sony Group Corporation announced a US $ 2 million donation to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the international NGO, Save the Children, to support the victims of this tragedy. “
Sony is thus joining a long line of companies that have chosen to cease their business operations in Russia, including Activision Blizzard, Microsoft, EA, CD Projekt Red, Netflix, Apple, McDonalds, Starbucks and many, many others.
