With Lik-Sang having gone the way of the dodo bird, some overseas customers were confident that other companies like Play-Asia would still be able to fill their gaming jones -- except now we've learned that this gray market importer and several others have also decided to put the brakes on shipping the PS3 to European customers. Our sister blog, Joystiq, reported earlier today that the Play-Asia just emailed a succinct message to its customers: "We regret to inform you that due to licensing and distribution limitations, Play-Asia.com will not be able to send PlayStation3 branded products to your territory." The company also updated its terms and conditions, saying: "PS3 will not be shipped to any countries in the European Union (EU)." Damn, it looks like our friends in Europe will just have to wait this one out after all.
