So In looking to get a video out a bit more frequent then every two weeks I’m looking at doing some Top 10 lists and will be promoting a new show later on.. anyway here is first said top 10:
Episode 2 and the first episode looking at video games; it’s Why You Should Play; Metroid Prime
Two days ago I lost my original 60gb PS3 to the dreded Yellow light of death and while thinking about funeral preperations I decided to look a little into UK (where I am) customer rights and found out that theres still a way to get it repaired for free, even if you don’t have a current warrenty.
According to UK customer Quality Goods law items you buy have to hold up to a certain standard covering a term of the first 6 years after punchase. While you can’t do much about this over Sony’s helpline as they aren’t required to honour it you can take it back to the original shop you bourgth it from and make them fix it.
You’ll need proof the fault is design and not something you did and prof of punchase then they have 14 days by law to accept and replace/fix the PS3 or refund you. Or you can pay for it yourself and take them to the small claims court to get the money back.
With the PS3 being released in Jan 7, 2007 in th UK there isn’t a single console thats 6 years old yet so anyone with this problem can still get it fixed free of charge!
Now one final thing… my original PS1 still works after all these years… says it all abotu the quality of todays manufacturing!
