PopCap Discounts All iOS Games, Sales to be Donated to Japan Earthquake Relief

PopCap has announced today that all their titles will be discounted for two days. They are teaming up with the Red Cross and all sales raised will be donated towards the relief fund for Japanese earthquake victims. The iPod/iPhone versions of games will be dropped down to $.99 and the iPad version will be $1.99.  The titles range from Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled, Chuzzle, and Peggle. Senior Director of Workforce Culture at PopCap, Ellen Marett had this to say in regards to the decision to hold this sale:

“We recently opened an office in Tokyo, and while our Japan-based employees are safe and uninjured, we understand countless others in Japan need food, shelter, and medical attention. Given that Plants vs. Zombies reached #1 on the iPhone and iPad sales charts in Japan, it seemed like the most appropriate game to feature in this fundraising campaign.”

For those interested in donating towards this cause, the sale will start on Saturday March 19 at 12:01 a.m. PDT and ends at midnight PDT on Sunday March 20.
