When my PSP went wrong after the warrenty. I phoned sony who xplained that there are two options pay for a repair or (the option i chose) buy a repaired model which came with a 3 month warrenty. As it turned out the repaired PSP went wrong and they delivered anther one next day van. But i know a guy who worked for Sony and he told me that 95% of their new products went wrong
I certainly would think twice about buying Sony kit. I do like my PSP. But its not as good as my iPod.
X-Box or PS3. Having had both in the past. Then PS3
Also Sony customer care were really great, 1st rate.
