Well worth £49 and i'll grab it myself. So 2 years after you standard warranty runs out, limited time only.

Your PS4 is built to last, whether you want to play for hours at a time or indulge in countless all-night movie fests. It comes with a 12-month manufacturer’s guarantee, just in case.

You'll be discovering new experiences long after the manufacturer's guarantee has run out, so why not join our PlayStation Protection Plan to give you peace of mind for a further two years? Sign up now and you’ll save £21* on the normal cost of coverage.

Just hope they don't find a reason not to replace it.

Whats the point when this is in the terms and conditions 9. You may not claim under this PlayStation®Protection Plan when the Product is damaged as a result of:

a. commercial use, accident, fair wear and tear, negligence, abuse, or misuse (including, without limitation, failure to use this Product for its normal purpose and/or in accordance with instructions on proper use and maintenance, or installation or use in a manner inconsistent with applicable local technical or safety standards);

Only valid if youve bought it less than 360 days ago.

The PS3 had this option too, I didn't take it. My PS3 died about a year after warrantee ran out but Sony still replaced it as a "good will" gesture.

I'd say these extended warranties are a bit of a con, especially when you read what ISNT covered.

I bought mine on launch day, so I'm screwed. Way to go Sony

Your PS4 is built to last


Hmmm, I'm guessing Sony probably once said the same thing about PS3 once upon a time. Until so many of the original models started suffering malfunctioning Blu-ray drives and the fabled YLoD.

PS2 were plagued with reliability issues too. As was the first PlayStation with its CD-ROM drive.

If I were wanting a PS4 then an extended warranty at a sensible price would be considered in light of Sony's track record.

screwing all the early adopters. this was available on day one in the states and you could even use psn credit to pay for it there

So true!

Just bought a white ps4 from Argos the other day.. How many people are actually going for this?

And there's this:

9. You may not claim under this PlayStation®Protection Plan when the Product is damaged as a result of:

b. use in conjunction with any unauthorised peripheral or component (including, without limitation, game enhancement devices, HDDs, adaptors and power supply devices);

So is this another excuse if you've upgraded your HDD??

EU Law grants us a 2 year warranty anyway. And the Sale of Goods Act effectively grants you 6 years with electronic goods so I don't see why people buy these?

The EU does not make laws, they set directives that individual member states then enact into law, unless the local law is stronger.

1999/44/EC says you have two years to report a defect that was present at time of purchase, or a was caused by an item not being correctly manufactured from the time of purchase, NOT that its warrantied for 2 years, so under 1999/44/EC you'd have two years from purchase to claim for any fault that happened in the warranty period (ie year 1).

However the UK sale of goods act already gives you 6 years to report a problem that happened in the first year, so 1999/44/EC was never enacted as its weaker than what was already in place.

Having a warranty is great until you actually need to claim against it. They'll find excuses not to do anything against warranty. Whilst I waited it out and got my PS4 3 weeks ago, following the comment about HDD drives, which I upgraded this would make it useless.

Either way gonna have to fight out Sales of Goods Act as it should be built for purpose... Considering you shouldn't have to replace your console until next gen you shouldn't need this to begin with.

Just to add this only includes faults that where present on the day it was manufactured and its upto to you to prove this 'inherent fault' yourself after 6 months from the date of purchase to the retailer you bought if from and not Sony direct.

Yeah pretty disgraceful for the early adopters.
I remembering asking SCEE about a protection plan when it was introduced for the American market some time ago.

I didn't receive a reply.

If it's built to last why'd they need to offer any protection plan? jk

I got a 3 year warranty deal with Tesco so would this make it 5 years? Lol.

My first ps4 lasted 6 months then the drive crapped out, I've heard of a few cases of dodgy drives too.
