Electronics fail... unfortunatly not ALL ps3's are invulnerable to break.. its unfortunate..
theres a reason sony offers that warranty on the PSN store..
people who think its a rip... thats there issue.. for people that PAID for it and used it, it benefited them.. saving 100+ repair bill
i feel 1yr warranty from purchase should be MANDATORY, and enforced on EVERY electronical device sold. but again, thats my opinion.
after 3 yrs your ps3 dies... how much did you play it? did you get that $$ worth out of it.. you pay 8-15 bucks for a 2 hr movie.
if you bought a launch system and it still works.. stfu u got your monies worth by now. if you bought the slim when it was released.. and you played it every other day since... you got your monies worth...
if you bought your system 3 months ago and it breaks.. sony should replace it... NOT with another refurbished p.o.s sent to repair...but a new system. recording the serial number they sent you... so as you assholes who think your clever and sending back another busted system saying u sent them a broken unit.. (happen ALOT) dont get away with it.
