Sony refuses to sell the PS3 in Korea…

2 min read


I am not sure what to make of this story to be honest.

Reports are coming in that Sony has decided to stop shipping PS3’s to South Korea because of the fact that Japanese tourists were snapping them up and taking them back to Japan.

Apparently Sony are very perturbed by the process of ‘reverse importing’, the process of exporting products from Japan to South Korea and the back again for cheaper than it’s available in Japan…

It seems ridiculous that this is the case but it really isn’t anything new, just look at the local cost of BMW 3 series which are made in East London and shipped to France and sold for less than you can buy one in East London itself…

But granted BMW has not stopped selling the cars locally, or in France for that matter.

I know that if I was living in South Korea I would be pretty grated right now.
