Sony agrees to replace defective PS3s

ps3So. We already told you guys about the apparent problems some PS3 users have been experiencing with their newly-bought consoles. Specifically, the defective cell chips and problems with the disc loader (remember we even brought you a YouTube vid that a lot of you decided was fake to begin with?).

Well now, we have yet another batch of PS3 issues to deal with: overheating and jammed memory cards. Yep, apparently, some of our fellow PS3 owners in Taiwan have been experiencing these problems with the consoles that were launched in their country.

After such complaints were forwarded to the Cabinet’s Consumer Protection Commission (and after their intervention in the matter of course), Sony Computer Entertainment Asia has agreed to replace PS3 consoles if found to have “serious defects.”

This agreement was reached during a recently held meeting between the CCP Commission and Sony, with the latter agreeing to replace the “defective consoles” with new ones IF the company deems them as having “serious defects.” No details were given as to how Sony defines “serious defects” (it can be quite problematic – lines have to be drawn too of course), but the Central News Agency does share that so far, Sony has replaced two consoles that had problems with the power switches.

We don’t know about you guys, but our PS3 has been working just fine – no overheating, no disc loader issues, and no problems with the power switches. But of course we’re not gloating about it, mainly because we don’t wanna jinx it too. Hahaha. How about you guys? Any problems with your PS3s so far?
