I've heard about this before. It's a Sony replacement scheme which includes out of warranty systems. There is a phone number for this and anyone with a faulty system can phone it. The guy is just making money by knowing this.

But he doesn't take faulty ones - check out all 15 questions that he has been asked. This definately seems a different thing.

But if it sounds too good to be true then it usually is!

yh i read that but how does he exchange a 40gb us/hk one for a 60gb uk pal one? if its just a 60gb for a 60gb that will be understandable.
#5
I haven't got a clue mate!
#6
Sorry I missed the q&a before. Not sure how this works. Does seem pretty good.
#7
If you think, your basically paying the £100 for the new console, seems legit, has it's ups and downs though
#8
well it cant be dodgy if the delivery driver comes to ur door and swaps it there and then.

cant u buy a 40gb ps3 from the u.s for $400 = £200 then pay 100 ontop = 60gb pal ps3 300 pounds
#9
They must sell on your old playstation to recoup costs maybe.
#10
You're paying the 100 before they collect it?
#11
if you go for it, make sure you open up the parcel before the del driver leaves incase you get scammed
#12
Yes, and check serial numbers + the ahrd drive sizw

I'll tell you how this works. He buys 60gb refurb ps3's from Sony. These old machines get put in brand new cases and are sold OEM for commercial use (i.e. for shop demos.). These are not for public sale. Then he sends your 40gb ps3 back as broken but as Sony has no refurb program for the 40gb ps3 he gets a new one, which is sold, at full retail price. Thus the £100 he charges goes in his pocket.

but if that was the case he would accept faulty ones, He will only take working ones.
#15
Oh and if your refurb PS3 breaks sony wont replace it as you shouldn't have it.
#16
He offers a 12 month waranty - or so he says
#17
he says there "brand new" as in sealed

Sony doesn't test all there returns as it is not worth this so 95% of the time you will get a new one as from there point the why would you send one back that wasn’t broken for the same model. So if one of his is randomly tested and found working it will be returned to him. He cant send it back to Sony as they know the serial numbers of the ones they tested so he will just sell it as second hand. Now you ask well why doesn't he only accept broken ones? Well there aren’t that many 40gb ps3 that are broken also people would be a lot more suspicious.
#19
but the thing is, he is accepting us/hk ones as well. how can he send those ones in?

Yes they look brand new as they are in a new plastic case(cant have tatty looking ones on demo)in a sealed box. The difference is these are not for resale to the public. The box only contains a PS3 and nothing else.

Well can only guess on this one but would expect as they are coming from the uk all will be exchanged for uk models.
#22
i have a 60gb hk ps3 would i be able to get 60gb pal by sending it in then?
#23
No he wouldn't, in case Sony get wise to it and then he will be stuck with a broken unit.

Dont know if Sony do personal returns. Sony normally only does retailer returns.

Best to phone up Sony customer services. They can only say no.

The only other option it to get hold of a uk box and package it up and take it to get a replacement but that has risks.
