Oh No! Lik-Sang Going Out of Business

Lik-Sang has always been my #1 favorite retailer for weird imports, specifically for hardware like DualShock to USB converters, and GBA Flash Cart burners, indispensable for my homebrew work. Their customer service and shipping was always great, and I trusted them as online retailers.

But now they’re going out of business. Sony had filed a bunch of lawsuits against them, because Lik-Sang sold PSPs from Asia to European customers. These lawsuits were upheld, and Lik-Sang can no longer do business.

This is sad. I hate how selling something between regions of the world makes you a criminal in the eyes of the corporations who push globalization, yet have profit to gain from market segmentation.

Do any of you readers have suggestions for another vendor of similar products? I’m going to do some DS homebrew work soon, and I’m going to need to buy some hardware.

I heard some very great things about the DS-Xtreme. So much, in fact, that I ordered mine last week. Here’s what Kotaku had to say.

Official site.

I’ll let you know what I think of mine once I get it. I’ve been waiting for about a year to actually get a kit :)
