my friend done this on ebay a while back wasnt with this guy but he recieved a new machine and the end of the day he wasnt prepared to pay 150 to get it fixed so he thought what the heck was covered for the £35 thro paypal and brocken machine would have gathered dust

this is old but worth reading

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/138534/free-replacement-psp-or-ps3-for-you

Reading about this it seems the guy from ebay is calling up Sony giving them your PS3 details and they are the ones who are sending out ur new replacement..............he is just making the call to Sony and making a killing lol

they have a satisfaction guarantee backed by Ebay plus if you pay with Paypal you have recourse - looks good to me

OP cancel your bid and call up Sony yourself - that way u have just saved yourself £35 - your only going to do what that guy is gonna do lol

There a service for psp slim ? my son has broken the screen on his slim. darn screen is almost £40.
#13
All the seller does is make a phone call and Sony replace the PS3. You could have done it yourself and saved £50 or whatever you paid..
If it's not too late and you've sent off your PS3, phone them yourself.

I didn't think this scheme was still running actually. I thought they shut down "continuous play" (or whatever it was called) due to abuse of the system? I guess this system of getting a free replacement PS3 is working some other way..

you can no longer sign up for this, but they still have to honour for those who are currently paying for it.

yeah, had a look at these when my son broke his psp and it was out of warranty, in the end i rang up sony nyself & lied about date i bought it & what was wrong with it after a friend told me what to say to sony,they sent a courier to pick mine up & replaced it at the same time. The problem is when you call is the length of time your on the call & knowing what to say to get a free replacement if its out of warranty, worth trying yourself tho before shelling out £35
#16
i brought one of these a about 5 weeks ago, two days after receiving my replacement sony called me to say the serial numbers did not match, etc - i said i paid £50 quid on ebay for a replacement and didnt know it was dodgy. Due to the fact i didnt know and didnt make the call and lie they said the warranty will be for 3 months as i now have a replacement model.
suspended#17
rang up sony and the said be 100 pound to fix lol so i saw this auction and thought 50 pound why not give it a go
#18
yeah i hear that, £100 is too much. thats why i used the ebay thing as well...at least the come back is not on me.

Yeah, it's not a scam though, they're just charging you to do something you just as easily do yourself.

well done you've paid someone to make a phone call for you

i got YLOD on my ps3 and asked on here, a few had been told by sony it would be £140 for a replacement. Mine was a few months out of warranty, they asked for the serial and receipt from play.com and it was sorted. Courier came round,took my knackered one and gave me a new one.

Yeah 4 times I rang and I've spoken to a supervisor twice on top of that, they were definitely not having any of it they were just saying that the console was first manufactured in sept 2007 so without proof of purchase showing it was bought within the year they wouldn't do anything apart from repair for £101.50
