    psp Sony Sues Fake Memory Stick Makers and Sellers

    News from I4U

    The problem of fake memory sticks has been already around for a while. Now Sony started to act and is suing several companies in Japan for selling fake memory sticks online.

    Fake memory sticks are also offered on eBay in the United States. So beware, when purchasing low priced sticks. The differences are hard to tell. There are not only fake Sony branded sticks, but also fake Sandisk memory sticks out there.

    The fake Memory Sticks are mostly made in China and Taiwan. The pirated copies are usually priced half.

    I bought a 1gb Sony pro duo from ebay back in April I think it was, I got it by sniper for about 20 inc P&P.

    The packing had holograms etc on it so I though nothing of it.

    2 days later I stick it in my card reader & it melts the end of it. At the time I was working for GAME, and we had them in stock for like 100 still, but even though the end looks like a boxers ear it still works fine!!!!

    So im all in favour of the fakes, as I think the offical ones prices take the piss.

    Saying that I just bough a 2gb sandisk one from PLAY, but that was only 60

    I have a fake Sony 2 gb, it works great. I think if the prices in stores weren't so ridiculus, people wouldn't buy the fake ones.

    I got a 2gb one off of ebay for 60 US dollars, and you know what? It has abit more capacity then the real one(I've tested it by filling up the entire card to 0mb free space) and every file works without corruption. I'll be damned to buy a 200 dollar(back then :P ) 'real' one
