Sony has reportedly ceased supplying South Korea with PS3 consoles in order to stop Japanese tourists getting their hands on the system cheaply.
Wily Japanese consumers are said to visit Korea to make the most of discount prices, although those picking up PS3s have only been able to get hold of up the 80GB version and need a converter as the countries use different voltage frequencies.
"We are troubled by 'reverse-importing', which is when products exported into South Korea are flown back into Japan," a Sony rep told Korean news site Chosun Online (via Kotaku).
