Today at 05:46:23 (UTC)/12:46 AM (EST), Japan was hit with a magnitude 8.9 earthquake, creating factories, among other infrastructures, to temporarily shut down.
According to the Kyodo news agency, Sony, who happens to be one of Japan’s mammoth exporters, had to shut down six of their factories as the earthquake caused fires and power failure in the northeast coast of the country. This earthquake will most certainly cause a humongous economic impact on Japan because of its damage to the factories.
On top of the earthquake, a tsunami came rolling in from the coasts of Japan, furthering the damage to the nation’s coastline. Reportedly, a 33 feet high tsunami hit the port of Sendai. The official death toll, so far, is more than 1,000 people, Japanese media outlets are reporting.
Other companies who have been identified to shut down their operations because of these natural disasters were Honda, Hokuriku Electric Co., JX Nippon Oil & Energy Corp., Cosmo Oil Co. and more.
I have run into this once or twice with Gamestop. You walk in, purchase a used game, get home and hop on the multilayer to realize you’ve been had. There is no code to get onto MP and there was no sticker to notify you that the title used a one time code. Better yet, you buy a new copy of Battlefield 2 and the game isn’t even wrapped. I have experienced all of these while shopping at Gamestop. Well apparently some people are fed up and are taking the retailer to the courts to duke it out.
This Press Release is a definite MUST READ!!!!
Congrats Aubrey, we wish you much success!!!
