Sony Hates Europeans, Will Prevent The Importing of PS3

Sony sure does know how to make friends. It emerged today that Sony fully intends to screw its most loyal European customers (you know, the crazy people who intend to import a PlayStation 3 before the official European launch) by using the "full scope of the law" to prevent such imports from happening. Sony says it's trying to "protect consumers" from the horrors of buying a game console that won't work with domestically released games and Blu-ray movies. Yeah, because the people who have the money to import a PS3 into Europe don't understand the consequences.

Does anybody even care about the PS3, honestly? Ready for another round of Generic FPS, are ya?
