    Gaming retailer and importer Lik-Sang.com has today buckled under the Sony onslaught and declared itself out of business.

    According to a press release posted on their website, Lik-Sang cites 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.

    I've personally never bought from Lik-Sang but i know many who have and have heard nothing but good feedbacl about their service, seems a real shame.

    There goes the possibility of importing other region games for the Wii, from a reputable reseller. Guess now we'll have to buy them from Ebay... Urgghh. I miss you Lik-Sang.

    Wow man, I heard about the legal action against Lik-Sang but I never though it would force them out of business. I don't hate Sony like alot of people but I must say that on this one, they ****ed up royally.

    I was half thinking about getting a PS3 for Resident Evil 5 and Unreal Tournament 2007, but after hearing about this, Sony can go to hell. This shows they're nothing more than a greedy, money hungry corporation.

    Personally I never bought anything from Lik-Sang, but from what I had heard they were an excellent company with a great reputation for customer service and product quality. They will be sorely missed.

    I can't help but wonder why all these companies are based in Asia...

    Can't they have a European, Pacific, or Latin retailer?
