Sexy in Black

Todays picture of the day is about the Sony PSP. I finally got mine 3 hours ago! I have been wanting a PSP since they first came out but the KD190 price was a major put off. So, I decided to wait till the US release so I could get it for cheaper and finally, late last month the PSP was released in the States. At first I was hesitant to get one, but then just like that I placed an order for a Extreme Bundle on The bundle came with a PSP value pack, the games Tony Hawk, Need For Speed and Wipeout Pure, plus a PSP starter kit. The total cost with shipping KD140. My biggest fear was that customs wouldn't allow my PSP into Kuwait. It seems Sony and Panasonic have a deal with customs that if any of their products tried to come into Kuwait they would be stopped and sent back to where they came from. I couldn't bear the thought of that happening to me, and luckily, it didn't. I got my PSP a few hours ago and my first impression was what a fucking amazing screen it has. The whole device just blows the Nintendo DS (main competitor) out of the water. There is no DS vs PSP war because the PSP has won. Anyway, I was just starting Tony Hawk before I decided to post and now I must get back to my game.

what's up with the "ban" of kuwait? Do you know why such a deal exists (or is it pure speculation). More info please!

hashim , the law in kuwait say that if you became the sole agent of a product in kuwait ( by bringing what prove it from the main company ) you can stop others from importing that product because you become the only one who can import that product

WTO should crush things like that , we are waiting for it
