    Just saw this article on the BBC's website

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6076354.stm

    I really think sony just is not in contact with their customers, ask anyone who plays their online games and they will agree

    I finally updated my sig, can\'t thing of anything decent to put it in though

    I think one of the marketing people at Sony has a controller stuck up his @ss. :D
    My Psp X3: 2.01 > 2.6 > 1.5 > 3.52 M33 - 4 > 3.90 M33
    5x Friends PSP\'s: 2.50 >2.71 >1.50 >1.00 >1.50

    boo!

    Europe hasn't been suffering to badly on the game release front with many of the high profile titles coming out in all regions within a few weeks of each other, but having to wait 6 months for hardware is bad enough without sony restricting imports. Bumholes.

    I dont see the point of sonys actions here. They still get paid by the seller. Maybe their afraid of an exploit being discovered on early models and they dont want it to spread too far.

    Its not just region locks Joe, its more like an embargo preventing Jap and US retailers shipping PS3 to the UK and Europe.
