Import Website Selling Modded Consoles

I was doing a price comparison of the Nintendo DSi across a variety of importers when I stumbled upon this product post at for a Region Free Playstation 2 Console (SCPH-90000) – Cinnabar Red 110-240V.

Clicking on the question mark next to the word “Region Free” brought me to a pop-up page that revealed the following tit-bit. My question to Renchi would be…does it play pirated games?

I didn’t know import websites such as Renchi are allowed to sell this stuff. Priced at USD 219.90, it’s more expensive than the unmodded Cinnabar Red PS2 console sold at Play-Asia for USD 169 (link). And I didn’t know that modding was that expensive either :).

While it’s an entirely different case, will tangling with Sony lead to Renchi going the way of Lik-Sang?

    This was a hell-ova long time ago but I thought I’d comment that I got one from there and it came from Hong Kong. <— I'm pretty sure that's how they're "allowed" to sell them. Regardless, it works great–but I've yet to try pirated games.
