Hi Everyone

Recently the people of Japan have undergone great hardship having been hit with devastating earthquakes, flooding and are currently dealing with the results of these disasters. BioWare wants to help the people of Japan during this time of need.

BioWare is auctioning off 2 Xbox 360 Game consoles and 2 custom painted PS3s each autograped by BioWare founders Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk each Xbox 360 will come with copies of Mass Effect 2, Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition and Dragon Age II autographed by the respective game teams. We will also be auctioning off 10 of the new Zip up Mass Effect 2 hoodies again autographed by Ray & Greg. All proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross  to help the people who need it most.

The signed Xbox 360s, signed PS3a and all 10 of the signed Mass Effect 2 hoodies are available for your bidding on eBay HERE. The highest bid on each item wins the auction and all the money raised will go to the Red Cross.

We encourage all of our fans to bid on these items or to donate to the Japanese Red Cross for Earthquake Relief Thank you for helping us aid Japan. :)

IMPORTANT UPDATE
These auctions are available to everyone! No matter where you live, no matter which country, we will ship teh prize to the highest winning bid. When we set up teh auction, we accidentally left the setting as "US shipping only". THIS IS NOT CORRECT. We will ship to any country to whomever wins teh auction, for all available prizes.

I guess I need to learn to read because I had to do a double take as I read "an autographed BioWare founder", which is strange as I read the post as if BioWare was now a slaver band. What is even more strange is even if it were and the BioWare founders were up for auction for charity, who would they be signed by? The enigma of BioWare!

Thank you so much for doing this. It seems that Ray and Greg haven't quite forgotten their parts as medical doctors - doing the(ir) best to help others. And I do wish I had much money...

I've told my facebook friends about this as I personally don't have spare cash at the moment. :]

This is a class thing to do Bioware, and it's for a great cause. Those people have been living a waking nightmare for over a month now.

Respect +1.

Great thing to do!

Question: Are the 360s the new slim model?

That's a bit cynical, don't you think?

I have an idea that might encourage more donations.

While those prizes to bid on are cool, I've already got all those games, and consoles.
What I don't have are all the unlockable items. (The Ring of Whispers, Ser Isaac’s Armor, The Antivan Garrote)

Perhaps something like a $5 donation would unlock a new item altogether, or the same one from shopping in the Bioware Store?

As much as I'd love to give my money to such a good cause, the bidding is already way out of my price range. Good luck to those still bidding and I hope you are able to raise a good amount. :)
