The PlayStation 3 comes with a one-year warranty from Sony when it is purchased new from a retailer. However, most users will have the console for longer than that and might wish to purchase an extended warranty to protect against repair expenses in the event of a hardware or software failure. Keep in mind that an extended warranty can only be purchased within the first 6 months after you purchase your PS3. An extended warranty will run concurrently with the one-year limited warranty that comes with all consoles.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • PS3 serial number (found on the back of the console)
  • Place of purchase information
  • Purchase date information
  • Sony Style Account information (optional)
