frzndaqiri, 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. Just ridiculous.  Think Sony is getting a bit paranoid these days?

alphamonkey sez: While this might not mean much for many US readers, it’s just more evidence that Sony is making more and more consumer un-friendly decisions (like the root-kit malware they included in a host of US CD releases, and say a $600 price tag for the PS3).  They control enough of a market share that actions like these clear the way for like minded corporations to enforce tighter and tighter controls on their products’ markets.
