iGEA auctioning games for Christchurch relief effort

09 May 2011

The Interactive Games and Entertainment Association (iGEA) has listed a veritable truckload of games on Trade Me with $1 reserves, the proceeds of which will go entirely to the Red Cross Christchurch Earthquake Appeal.

The games on offer are wide-ranging and many, from Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 through to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Prototype through to Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. By sheer volume, the odds are a little better than usual that you'll score one of these games at a good price; there are three pages' worth of games on offer, with multiple copies of many of them.
