Sigh, that's horrible news. That really puts a mark on the gaming community today.

I've never been big on the playstation consoles. Now I have another reason to shake my head at sony. :\

I doubt they have one...the outside world is something of a plaything to them.

Aye, Squaresoft was the medium between the company and the rest of the planet.

It's the truth unfortunately. Too bad for lik-sang. :-\ Although I personally have never ordered anything, I know they had some good stuff there and they cared about their customers, which is what counts. Instead of sueing, Sony should take example from them.

They lost the next gen war when they decided to go with blueray, in my opinion. Not to mention a million other mistakes (like the slim PS2 that wasn't compatable with the HDD).

try reading the first paragraph...

"Lik-Sang.com, the popular gaming retailer from Hong Kong, has today announced that it is forced to close down due to multiple legal actions brought against it by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited and Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Sony claimed that Lik-Sang infringed its trade marks, copyright and registered design rights by selling Sony PSP consoles from Asia to European customers, and have recently obtained a judgment in the High Court of London (England) rendering Lik-Sang's sales of PSP consoles unlawful."
