    End of Continuous Play???

    Just went on to their website and read the little message they put up and it seems that they have caught on to people exploiting their services. Some advice before people continue to buy faulty items from ebay.

    Hopefully their policies don't change too much when they decide to come back.

    being considerate :)...Original Sony Message:

    Yeh ofc.:thumbsup: Can't see them doing it for the just signups.

    They haven't taken money from me in a bit - does it auto cancel if you claim?

    to be honest what did they expect, it was open to abuse, people signing up after their playstation went faulty and then getting a new one for a fiver

    As the OP wasn't considerate enough to post the message, here it is:

    OP editied. I think they will soon change their policies with regards to the free exchanges that they do aswell, not long now tbh.

    Really the service just meant they could charge £5 pm for repairs that should have been offered for free under warranty. Good business move.

    if the console broke down they replaced it for you

    basically a £5 a month insurance policy

    Yes when the guy wasn't trying to scam someone on here. I was always like why didn't you get it fixed under this? Searching for more information on the reasoning why it’s being sold. If it’s genuinely broke then I have no problem it’s when people buy them and they try and scam them by falsifying information.

    Well if Sony and other console manufacturers offered a decent warranty it would cut out a lot. A 1 year warranty on expensive items eg in my case, I paid £454 for 1 ps3 near launch day and £429.99 for the other both out of warranty now and £££ down the drain now if either breaks. Was hoping to use CP if mine broke down.(yes somewhat dishonest) But I would take the stance Sony owe me. Rightly or wrongly.
