Last week, several videogame companies began to announce that they suspended their services and sales in Russia after the invasion of Ukraine by this country. Now, Sony has officially confirmed that it suspends digital sales and shipping products to Russia at the moment.
Sony had already taken the previous decision to silently cease the sale of great tourism 7 in Russia last Friday, but now it has announced that the measures extend to all its products until the attack on Ukraine ceases.
“Sony Interactive Entertainment joins the global community asking for peace in Ukraine,” the company explained in a statement. “We have suspended all the shipments of hardware and software, the launch of Gran Turismo 7 and AS operations of the PlayStation Store in Russia.”
Sony added that he would also send humanitarian aid to Ukraine with a donation of two million dollars.
Sony is the last company to make a similar decision, as they had already done others like Microsoft, EA, CD Projekt, Activision Blizzard, Ubisoft, and Take-Two.
