    I dunno if this has been mentioned but i found it interesting reading, apparently Sony has lost a legal battle in Australia and now Playstations can be openly sold over there with modification chips allowing consumers to import from around the world.

    I think its a good thing and it would be nice if we had retailers with the guts to do the same thing over here, i believe its also illegal to sell dvd players with regional coding on them in Australia ( sounds like a very intelligent country )
