GREE CEO Yoshikazu Tanaka On The Effects Of The 3/11 Quake [Social Games]

What does GREE CEO Yoshikazu Tanaka think about his company and Japan’s chances of a recovery after the triple disasters that hit this country on March 11? NHK World recently aired an interview with Tanaka (in English), and you can watch it here (sorry, it’s not embeddable).

He’s not mentioning it in the interview, but earlier Tanaka said that after the earthquake user activity on GREE went down drastically – and that it took one week to return to normal. DeNA also said their business was affected for about a week right after 3/11.
