I dont understand Japan is the third richest country in the world. When we got hit on Sept 11 No one helped us out. When went to Iraq, Afghanistan and set a global war on terror. Who helped us? Ok the UK they are good guys, but other then them NO ONE. Why should we help Japan? Hati I can understand the children there eat MUD PIES actual pieces of Mud baked on the side of a hill and eat it just to fill their stomachs. But Japan, I dont understand why everyone is pushing to help them.

Thats just me. All Im saying is dont be so quick to jump on the Next "Buying" Craze. AKA gotta help this country gotta help that country. People in America will help Japan before they donate food to a local food shelter. It never ceases to amaze me.

I suggest you read more and find out how many other countries were and still are involved in Iraq and Afghanistan war instead of talking -blam!-.

anyway, bungie! wtf? any update on international shipping?

Great thing for Bungie to do, ordered one. Won't be wearing it though.

  • 03.24.2011 10:10 PM PST

Shipping on these things takes a while, huh? I ordered mine a week or so ago and I don't think it has even left the warehouse yet.

I'm not upset or anything and still very willing to support Japan. Just wish I could show it off to maybe convince others to buy one soon.

  • 03.25.2011 12:19 AM PST

@ GOAT GA BAAAHHHHHH
Have you actually seen any pictures/clips at all from Japan?! Inconsiderate little twat.

There's a clear difference between a terrorist attack and a natural disaster. The response to natural disasters is usually charity campaigns and such. The response to terrorist attacks is usually fighting back.

And the sheer volume and scale of the terrible disaster in Japan wipes the floor with what happened in 9/11. 9/11 is like cannon fodder compared to most natural disasters.

I stand by what I said although there are a few countries helping the US in Afghanistan and Iraq, I dont know all of em like the back of my hand. The fact is Japan and help its self. Nice to see Bungie doing a nice helpful thing, but america doesnt get the same treatment. I dont understand why people will donate $1 to Japan, but they wont give a dollar to a bum. Thats my main point. Noble thing on bungie's part, but before giving money elsewhere just think and give it in your neighbor hood

When will Bungie sell this to international buyers?

  • 03.25.2011 12:58 PM PST

So, Im guessing international shipping couldn't be worked out in the end :(

If you're reading this, congratulations. You've just pressed a button to find out a little bit more about me. Not that you will, but well done anyway.

REDSKINS!!!

bungie, im very disappointed. The quality of the wrist band is not good at all. I know the overall purpose is to raise money for the victims in japan, but come on; the wrist band isn't even legible.And it wasnt even cut straight, it looked as if part of another wrist ban was still connected to it because it wasnt manufactured right.

  • 03.28.2011 8:36 PM PST

An update would be great but we musn't forget why we're *donating* the wrist band is awesome but really if people want it to be something they can show off then that might not be the right mindset with which to *donate*. There are other ways to donate.

Having said that I'm all for showing them off to get people to buy them specially here in England *hint hint bungie*... ;)

GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_response_to_Hurric ane_Katrina

I quote: The Japanese Foreign Ministry said that it would provide $200,000 in cash to the American Red Cross to assist victims of Hurricane Katrina. Japan also identified needs in affected regions via the U.S. government and provided up to $800,000 in emergency supplies such as tents, blankets and power generators if they receive requests from the U.S. for such assistance. Private and corporate donations totaled over $13 million.[33] One Japanese individual, Takashi Endo, donated USD $1 million from his personal funds to Katrina relief efforts.

Use google before you go making sweeping statements like that BS.

Did you guys come over here and help us during the London bombings? No you didn't because it was unnecessary. The death toll in Japan us now over 11,000.

Japan is responsible for the games industry being what it is today.
Now buy a wrist band and shut up.

  • 03.29.2011 10:39 AM PST

So Bungie I do really want two of these but I'm in the UK. Any updates on overseas delivery?

You had decided on the wrong Marine to muck with

In case you never took to notice is that japan has helped us when it came to the HALO games we have yes Bungie came up with the Ideas but you need to look at that Bungie works with japan on such awesome games as this even though you may think of it this way but why are you being negative? It's such a shame to see people act like this and thinks their thoughts are better than others. The reason for the pushing to help them is because we are allies with japan way after the end of the second world war I always loved the culture there but you seem to me that you are a negative soul that talks all about grudges so why don't you just keep that thought of yours to your self.

Paradux,
I agree with you and that this goats go baah has one major issue here. 1. Dumb as a brick 2. makes me think of him as a racist. 3 He acts before he thinks which is putting the hores behind the cart.

Goat here as I said has a very negative attitude and that it's time for him to stop acting like a kid go & STFU and bye the wrist band. Now even though I can NOT afford one at least I can donate what I can for Japan through the local Red Cross Chapter. Dux at least I can see that goats needs to get a life. Goats is as far as it goes is a meat head with no brains or class for that matter he took every thing we all said here in support to Japan and twisted it all waaaay out of context. Well like it or not Goats just better be off keeping his BIG MOUTH shut.

Bungie, the rest of the world still wants bands as well!

  • 04.02.2011 1:43 PM PST

Its been two weeks since this band came up on the website, after reading that it'd be shipped internationally considering the serious circumstance, I was eager to jump on board and help the cause...
Bungie told us it'd be fixed, but since then, even in the two latest updates they've failed to even mention it. I'm sorry Bungie, I'm a loyal fan, but there are those OUTSIDE the US that have shown a major interest in this, I would have thought fixing the shipping issue would be a priority, but clearly not.

proracer I agree with you 1000% The hard issue here is that this dumb @ZZ has no idea what he is talking about. I took some training free classes of Disaster Preparedness. The fact is I trained through FEMA and that there never was it teaching about terrorist attacks. I think that goat needs to research of how to tell the difference between attacks & disasters. At the time I was in training we did not discuss terrorist attacks at that one time. The point you stated made more sense than goats 2 pennies. Thank you for bringing up a good point. I salute you and yes I seen the pics of the disaster of Japan.

  • 04.03.2011 8:03 AM PST

its a really good idea it will really help japan but instead you could do hoodies jumpers jeans shoes togs polos baseball caps you could have them made from top designers could even do a fashion show on live tv and it will put alot of money towards japan and possibly you can also make more money to make more map packs! :)
