indeed, it's pretty funny. I think it stemmed from a discussion between isolationist boneheads and, well, everyone else. This tends to happen when you bring up *any* foreign country in conversation with them... sigh
At any rate, i hope the game industry takes action on this... we have enough money to make a big stink, you know. It's ridiculous... eliminating our entire market in a country... even communist CHINA has a games industry, for **** sake!
