Are they doing this in other countries or just Australia?

I'm considering just blowing the cash to get one of the PS Jailbreaks now just in case they try to pull this elsewhere.

Any thoughts on this kinda stuff happening in North American and Europe? Could just be Sony using litigation techniques in Australia to make a scene and grab some quick inventory samples. I guess Sony didn't feel like waiting in line to get an order filled and thought it would be easier to confiscate the products.

Is PSJailbreak still shipping to anywhere/anyone, or is it just resellers getting axed? This would suck if it was over before it began.

I updated the news to reflect the Quantronics page changing back to their normal product page with, it appears they simply added "no stock" to cover their butts in hopes that Sony won't get an injunction by the end of the month.

Edit: I added another update above, it appears OzMod is involved as well.
