- A huge fuss was recently kicked up regarding a certain PS3 that was too dusty for Sony to repair.
However, it seems as if the gamer has been saved by his VISA card's extended warranty protection which should see his system replaced.
To quote: I just got off the phone with Visa for the third time and they are sending me a claim form to start the repair/replacement process of my system.
They at first said that they would need to attempt to have it repaired in my local video game repair shop, but I let them know that i had already contacted them and the firmware in combination with the blu-ray lens made it impossible to repair economically and it would have to be replaced.
They said as long as I had a repair receipt stating that it wasn't economical to repair, I could walk into a Best Buy, charge a new PS3 to my credit card and they would credit that charge.
Thanks A LOT, for all your help, you guys have more helpful than i would ever imagine. Lets just hope I never need to email you guys again shall we?
