SCEE continues efforts to prevent importers from circumventing September PSP launch.

Comments

Sony's continued efforts to prevent European gamers from importing a PSP before the system's official September 1 launch across the pond are meeting with success. Online retailer Nuplayer Ltd. has lost its legal battle with Sony and will no longer sell imported versions of the portable gaming unit.

Nuplayer has been ordered to pay substantial costs and damages to Sony for bringing the case against the company and to hand over its remaining stock, details of sales, supplier data, and some customer data. SCEE claimed that the imported sales of the PSP console were undermining Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's marketing program for the console's scheduled launch.
