Subject: Sony Cracking Down on Mod-Chips

While this does not affect those who have already installed a Mod-chip into their PS/PS2, those who have not should possibly think about doing so soon. Acoording to this report over atThe Register, there's news that Sony is cracking down on mod-chip manufacturers in Europe. For those that don't know, most of the modern Mod-chips allow PS/PS2 users to watch DVD's from any region and allow the playing of copied/pirated titles (duh!). Three mod-chip makers in Europe have been contacted by Sony and told to stop sales of their mod-chips or face legal action. Two have complied so far. So far there has been no similar action within the US.
