LG managed to secure an import ban against Sony on Monday which would last for just ten days and now The Guardian have discovered that the import ban is effective only in the Netherlands.
At present Sony brings the majority of the consoles in to Europe via ports in Rotterdam and Amsterdam which is why LG targeted the Netherlands for the ban. There is nothing stopping Sony from importing the consoles to Europe via France, the UK or any other country.
This might cause Sony a logistical headache and LG could easily apply for more bans in other countries but for the moment this can filed under ‘minor annoyance’ rather than the ‘ OMG! European PS3 crisis’ that many have implied.
