With the number of PS3s getting the Yellow Light of Death (YLOD) these days, its no surprise that gamers are worried about their precious consoles. Sony has now announced an affordable way to insure your PS3 and PSP for up to two additional years on top of the one year manufacturer’s warranty. The pricing includes all shipping charges and repairs, which are performed by PlayStation-trained service technicians at SCEA-authorized repair facilities.
The protection plans are now available to purchase but are only valid on consoles still under the original manufacturer’s warranty. In addition, only PSP-3000 and PSPgo consoles can be protected, and must be purchased within the first 30 days of purchase.
- PS3 – 1-year extension ($44.99) or 2-year extension ($59.99)
- PSP – 1-year extension ($29.99) or 2-year extension ($39.99)
- PSP Accidental Damage – 1-year ($39.99) or 2-year ($49.99)
