The video game establishment has swarmed aboard another pirate site and extracted $190,000 from the captain.

Interactive Entertainment Association of Australia (IEAA) members Sony Computer Entertainment and Microsoft scored what they called “a record settlement” from Wen Bin Gu, operator of Web sites etpress.com and gamemobo.com.

Sony and Microsoft obtained orders from the Federal Court of Australia freezing Gu’s assets after investigations allegedly found him selling hundreds of illegal pirated games across major consoles. The court has also ordered Gu to refrain from reproducing or dealing with infringing games in the future.

The IEAA says the action follows a nationwide crackdown on piracy by the computer game industry following changes to Australia’s Copyright Act. “This case should serve as a warning to those organisations importing, distributing and selling illegal pirated games,” warns IEAA CEO ChrisHanlon.
