Just seen this over on HDUK.

http://www.choicesuk.com/Product.aspx/game_home/ps3_game_home/hardware_ps3_game_home!829650

The following is taken from a post on HDUK from someone who works at choicesuk.

Hi Guys,

The warranty against these products is as follows:

ChoicesUK will provide a 30 day guarantee against all sales of catalogue returned consoles.

If an unused warranty card from Sony is present within the box, you will be entitled to a 12 month warranty from Sony UK.

In the scenario where a catalogue customer has purchased the console, filled in the warranty card but decided to return the product within 30 days, you will only be eligible for the ChoicesUK 30 day guarantee. Unfortunately I am not aware of Sony's policy with regard to previously registered warranties and whether they will honour the remaining term.


Make your own mind up before ordering, but, I have had a PS3 since launch day and not had a single problem with it.

That's the power of HotUKDeals, the site's become too popular for its own good.
yes and no, more people = more bargains spotted

i guess its a matter of how quick you can pull out your credit card, and how often you check the site

About 6:58am this morning.

No idea who's the shipping company - sorry.

Shipping email came at 13:31pm.

Email simply says it'll be with me within 7 days...

Choices Delivery has been pretty good in the past.

Well, it turned up this morning. It's not the GT5 model, and it has definitely been used before (User called 'Cool Dude').

The warranty card appears to be missing, but might call up sony and see what they can do.

Everything is in the box, and I'm just reformatting everything now. (3 hrs!!!).

Looks good so far, given the price.

EDIT: Sony accepted the registration of the console on the Web. I'm very happy right now - now to get some better cables (I can't believe that it's only composite in the box!)

EDIT: It came parcel force by the way.

There is no warranty card, you register it yourself online with the serial number thats on the bottom of the console. http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/registration/

I have read that you dont get a warranty from sony for a second hand console, but I registered my one just in case you do.

Yes, worked that out - I've registered on the website - it didn't mention it being a second registration. Is there any way to check if it's already been registered or if Sony believe it's a first reg?

i dont think you would have had a sucessful registration if it had been registered before, so you;re ok
