Sony launches official 'Protection Plan' for PS3 and PSP

Should your system die after Sony’s one year warranty, there isn’t much you can do except buy a new system or ship it to Sony and have the fix the problem for $150.

Sony has now announced the PlayStation Protection Plan, which allows new PS3 and PSP owners currently covered by the standard warranty to purchase additional coverage. According to SCEA’s VP of operations, Glenn Nash, the PlayStation Protection Plan was created for “consumers looking for added peace of mind … interested in an extended service plan that’s backed directly by SCEA and leverages our technical expertise.”

A one-year extension for the PS3 will cost $49.99, while a two-year plan will cost $59.99. The PSP plan is $29.99 for one year, and $39.99 for two years.
