yeah that's why it's so shady.  Sony is claiming that they are concerned about compatability.  Since they themselves aren't the ones shipping out the japanese console with the european transformer, they can't be sure that this 3rd party is actually doing it, or whatever.  What happens if a european receives this package and the console fries due to defective converter or something?  Should Sony be held liable? Sure, it's a sony product working with a sony product, but sony did not package these 2 products together, nor condone them being packaged together.  I can understand and agree with Sony's arguments.  But I do not think that these concerns warranted shutting down a business.  Especially when it's obvious that this was the strawman argument they were using, to hide their real intentions of hurting their advertising schedules, which would not hold up in court.

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Hehe... Yet another reason to steer clear of Sony this go around:

Nintendo profits up 72%, Sony's down 94%

Even the Xbox 360 is looking better to me now ;)
You can't win, you can't lose, you can't break even... you can't even get out of the game.
