The Japanese anti-monopoly authority has told Sony Computer Entertainment to stop restricting resellers of software for its enormously successful Playstation games machine.
Sony claimed that its ?business practices do not violate anti-monopoly laws? in a statement, and it plans to defy the authority, the Fair Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC said Sony forces wholesalers to only sell to retailers and retailers to only sell to consumers.
The FTC also said Sony is fixing the price of Playstation software and asks retailers not to sell second hand software. It gave the company until 30 January to comply. Sources expect Sony?s sales of Playstation have now reached 25 million units, making it the clear leader in the market.
