Sony PSP extentened warranty

Sony has launched a program that lets PlayStation Portable owners protect their gaming devices after their warranty runs out.

The PlayStation Protection Plan, announced Monday, offers U.S.-based owners a one-year or two-year extended warranty for their PSP. The plan basically extends the coverage available in the manufacturer's one-year warranty, which covers repairs at no charge done by "PlayStation-trained service technicians." Shipping is included.

Pricing for the PSP and PSP Go, owners pay $29.99 for one year of protection or $39.99 for two years.

These plans are only offered to new purchasers or owners who are still within their one-year warranty period. In other words, if you bought a PSP more than a year ago and you're no longer covered under the manufacturer's warranty, you can't buy the PlayStation Protection Plan.

Sony also has an alternative plan for PSP owners. Those concerned about the PSP's display can buy a warranty that includes accidental damage to the screen. Those plans are offered at $39.99 and $49.99 for one or two years of protection, respectively. However, Sony has mandated that the accidental damage plan must be acquired within 30 days of the purchase of a new PSP.
