Warranty service

15 replies 120 views Edited Jul 8, 2013

I preordered my ps4 in gamestop but im now thinking i should have researched extended warranties before putting that preorder down, i know walmart and best buy will most likely offer a competitive extended warranty im hoping gamestop will as well anyone have any extended warranty issue.  I got my ps3 with no warranty and had no problems with it 20 gb and its still going strong, I dont think i will test my luck twice.

I always get my warranties from http://www.squaretrade.com/ they are the best if you're buying on Amazon or ebay.

514 is correct about an extended warranty being available from the PSN Store, I'm unable to check if it's still available as my PS3 isn't on right now, but I got mine from there & it was a god-send when i needed it.

 

Squaretrade from Amazon is also very good, but there's no need to 'panic' just yet, so long as you get any extended warranty before the manufacturers warranty expires you'll be fine.

Re: Warranty service

I wasnt thinking of these things when i preordered it and acted like a normal person running out and preordering it without thinking, just handing the money out in the craze of the moment i guess.  Now after reality sets in I start thinking of things like this and im like maybe a little research before preordering would have been nice.  After talking to someone at gamestop.com they are guessing with nothing official so i definately wont take this price into consideration  and with gamestop im thinking double but he said probably 40 dollars for an extra year.  I was hoping to get a few years covered under the warranty, no way my wife lets me pay for another one for at least a few years if it breaks.

I don't no, sorry, as you correctly said above it used to be & may still be, without turning my PS3 on I can't check for this, but if you've looked & can't see it maybe the option was removed.

 

I'll see if I can look into this.

That is reassuring that i will have at least an option for a warranty program eventhough i preordered it through gamestop and they cant charge what they feel like and have me trapped.
