How To Void Your PS3's Warranty

Over the past couple of days, there's been some theorizing regarding whether or not the use of unlicensed third party products will void a player's warranty. You gotta love those guys over at The Consumerist, who took it upon themselves to skim through the PS3's limited warranty statement:


(2) THE PRODUCT IS USED WITH PRODUCTS NOT SOLD OR LICENSED BY SCEA (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, NON-LICENSED GAME ENHANCEMENT DEVICES, CONTROLLERS, ADAPTORS AND POWER SUPPLY DEVICES). YOU ASSUME ALL RISKS AND LIABILITIES ASSOCIATED WITH USE OF THIRD PARTY PRODUCTS.

Well, that answers that: I guess we'll just take the politician's approach of denying any wrongdoing if our third party products kill our system.

Remember that story you had this week about MS getting a free ride while Sony got the hate? The 360 and the Wii have the same clause. Here's the one from the Wii:


This Warranty shall not apply:

[...]

2. If the Wii™ is connected to any voltage other than shown on the compliance label or unapproved and unlicensed products are used with the Wii™.


More Sony hate. What a surprise.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
