Sony Win Round in Ongoing Battle, LG Must Pay Fine and Return Seized PS3s

By Updated on

The dispute continues between two of the biggest manufacturers of consumer electronics products Japan’s Sony and North Korean LG. We previously brought you news of the PS3 consoles being seized in Europe. It seems the battle has taken a couple more turns since then.

Earlier today there were reports that LG had won a court order granting them the power to not only seize the consoles in the Netherlands but also confiscate the consoles that had already been purchased from customers’ homes.

Now according to an article by Sebastian Moss at PlayStationLifeStyle, Sony have fought the case successfully and won which means LG now face a fine and will no longer be able to hold the consoles it initially seized. The number of consoles is thought to be in the 300,000 region and the fine will be €130,000 to Sony.

More details about the latest proceedings can be found in the article by clicking the link above where it is said that although Sony won this battle, LG will still continue on with the war. What do you think of the latest goings on? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
