Looks like Sony is in some trouble at least in Europe. LG had recently sued Sony with a Patent dispute over their blu-ray technology and have been granted a preliminary injunction in the matter. This injunction prevents the PlayStation 3 from currently being imported to Europe. For at least the next 10 days, every PlayStation that is imported will be seized by Government officials. LG has its target on the US next.
Sony imports around 100,000 consoles a week to Europe. Sony may see massive revenue drops if this dispute is not resolved in a timely manner it would be in their best interests to settle as soon at possible. Sony has been quiet on the topic thus far I doubt that will last long. [electronista]
