    is £24.99 good to extend my PS3 warranty to 3 years?

    HMV said they can extend my warranty for my Play station 3 i bought last week for £24.99 sounds like a good price, can anyone offer any advise if i should go for it or not, i bought the 250gig version, i posted it on here as well: hotukdeals.com/ite…ele i think its a fair price aint it cause curry's and that will charge loads more, any help would be appreciated, thanks, jay.

    Very good price. Tbh.

    Better to be safe and take it.

    its a no brainer dude, pay it.

    YLOD on it's way

    sounds ok for the price,check what it covers though and how it works....better than going through all the back and forth with SOGA if you have trouble after a year imo

    sounds good to me.

    Which a very small percentage of PS3's get. Unlike RROD on the 360
    As long as you keep your PS3 well ventilated like a person with common sense would then you should be fine.

    i bought mine form hmv, took out the 3 years my ps3 went down the other week, just took it back the they swapped it straight over, well worth it

    worth every penny. In 3 years time your ps3 is likely to start having problems. Just remember to check the terms

    Not technically needed, and chances are you won't use it, but it can often be worth it for peace of mind, and also for the knowledge that things will be sorted out quickly if something does go wrong.

    Personally I never buy extended warranties, with the exception of my PS3 that I bought at launch in March 2007. Last week the Blu ray drive failed on it. It's being fixed now and shall be back with me soon (it's a 60GB model so can't be replaced with a new one). I'd say I got somewhat lucky there.

    Definitely worth it my friend did this it failed on him twice and they gave him £350 to buy him a new one and PS3s only cost £250

    Id buy it!!!!

    Gutted. I imagine I'd be faced with a similar bill without the insurance. As I said, I hardly ever take out insurance like that, so was very lucky that it came through for me this time.
