The new ‘PlayStation Protection Plan’ will be available beginning this month. The program is available to all new purchasers, as well as those who are still covered by the one-year manufacturers’ warranty for their PS3 or PSP.
If desired, the PS3’s manufacturers’ warranty can now be extended by one year for $44.99, and two years for $59.99. PSP owners will get one year for $29.99 or two years for $39.99. PSP owners can also buy the Accidental Damage Plan, which extends the system coverage to include cracked screens, for an additional $10.
If your original one-year warranty is still active, yet you would prefer the comfort of an extension, you can have the new plan start when your original warranty expires. Those interested in extending their coverage can do so by calling 1-866-716-7669. Full details can also be found at Sony’s Web site.
