Im really really happy that Microsoft launched the 360 + Xbox LIVE here in India. Love them for that reason :P and according to M$ themselves, the amount of 360s sold here are more than the ones sold in Singapore and Taiwan...thats good :)

And coming to the sony part. The Playstation is more popular here than the Xbox 360 because Sony has 3 platforms and not 1 like Microsoft.

The PSP and the PS2 are very popular while the PS3 is growing well....however, according to retailers, the 360 is outselling the PS3 here as of now because of the lower price.

LIVE has done so well here that Its made Sony bring PSN to hasnt been launched yet but till be out soon.

Well India is the potentially 2nd biggest market in the world next to China, I'm not suprised it would have a potentially big game industry.

Walk the streets of Hong Kong at night when they set up shops on the street, they sell a ton of bootleg stuff. Heck, i bought ton of stuff to give to my friends.

You can find tons of phones, downloaded PSP games, and whatever movie you want in the Philippines. Their food is great and everything is inexpensive compared to the dollar.

Hmmm... i should go to Europe...

My parents are from India but I am born here in Austraia, I can tell you that piracy is also quite high in India, for one when I went to India there were alot of people selling pirated movies.
