Play-Asia.com cancels PS3 pre-orders

GameBrink.com has posted an e-mail from the popular video game import site Play-Asia.com which states that pre-orders for the PS3 will not be filled due to "licensing and distribution limitations". This news comes one week after Lik-Sang, the largest video game import site, was forced to close its virtual doors due to Sony's many lawsuits regarding extraterritorial sales of its consoles.

Of course, gamers see this as another attempt by Sony to keep them in line. After all, why does Sony care where PS3s are purchased when the system is region free? And why do they care if a few European gamers get their hands on the console before its official release? Is this really causing damage to Sony? I'm thinking no. So what is it? The offering of many non-proprietory products? Messy accounting? Whatever it is, I don't think it's worth taking away importing sites that many gamers have come to know and love, particularly when you're trying to get these gamers to put down $500 - $600 for your product.
