How do I register my PS3 for warranty purposes?
Welcome to the PlayStation Community.
You don't need to register your product to receive warranty service, registering your PS3 or another product basically only serves to give Sony your information so they can contact you, you receive the same warranty service whether you register your PS3 or not.

You need your original purchase receipt to receive warranty service, as Sony only provides a warranty to the original purchaser of the console. If you buy a used PS3, then you get no warranty. The receipt also serves as proof of when the console was purchased. Registration isn't used as part of the warranty process at all.
