Indeed - it will take MUCH more time to ban it across the whole Europe not even mentioning that all the selers need to do is migrate from offering / seling the dedicated brake devices to "universal" / not pre-loaded dev boards like Minimus AVR and NOT mention PS3 on their web sites and Sony can do nothing after that the same way they can't stop selling of TI calculators, ipods or iphones

Sorry, but that's nonsense. They can't just ban mod-chip sales in Europe. Europe consists of MANY countries, each with its own laws and courts. Maybe they got an injunction or even a court order in some places, but certainly not everywhere.
