It really sucks that your PS3 is broken. So now you are looking for a solution for PS3. Well, the most obvious is to send your console to Sony. But how much does it cost to repair the PS3 if you send it to Sony?
If you were to send your console to Sony, you would be charged around $ 150, unless your PS3 is under warranty. That is pretty steep; Especially considering that the cost of a new slim is around $ 300! There are some other downsides to sending your console to Sony such as having to wait up to 6 weeks for your console to be returned to you and when you finally get it back you will find that Sony has erased the hard drive … saved games, music, videos, etc. . There are a few benefits of shipping your console to Sony:
- The creator will repair your console, so it should be able to solve the problem.
- You get a 3-month warranty on the console after repairs
Note: If your PS3 is still under warranty, I would recommend that you send your console to Sony. Opening your PS3 will void your warranty.
