According to Sony, the new PlayStation Protection Plan, an extended warranty service for PS3 and PSP announced today, was made possible because of the "reliability" of the PlayStation Brand. The program allows consumers to purchase one or two year warranty extensions when they purchase a new PS3 or PSP.
Sony Computer Entertainment America's VP of Operations, Glenn Nash, said: "The PlayStation brand has long been synonymous with the highest quality in engineering and design, and it's because of the reliability of the PS3 and PSP systems that we can offer the PlayStation Protection Plan." Guess Mr. Nash never had to turn his PS1 sideways to get it to work.
"We have heard from consumers that they're interested in an extended service plan that's backed directly by SCEA and leverages our technical expertise. While both the PS3 and PSP systems are designed with future-proof technology and built for long lifecycles, we're looking forward to offering this service to consumers looking for added peace of mind," he added.
The PlayStation Protection Plan is available now.
