The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Sony, why must you hurt me so?
Posted on Wednesday, September 23 2009 @ 15:51:49 PST

I am currently so pissed that I can barely see straight, so if I have some typing errors, I apologize. I sent my PS3 in a year ago to be serviced because it was getting graphical errors and freezing. This year the exact same thing happened. I was pissed about this but I swallowed my rage, paid the $150 and sent it in to be serviced again.
I just got a package back from them. They sent me back my PS3 more broken than it was before. Before it would accept disks. Now I just put a game in and it won't come out. I called them to see what was up. Apparently, it's an 80GB PS3 and has the serial number of a 60GB, so they're refusing to service it. This is the PS3 Sony sent to me. They sent me a PS3 with a tampered serial number that broke a year later and now they're refusing to service it. I have to buy a new one. I am absolutely blinded with rage right now. What the **** Sony? WHAT THE ****?
To be clear about a few things: I don't have any form of reciept or way to prove my end of the story. Sony acknowledges that they sent me a PS3 a year ago and I have the tracking and all that still, but that's all I have left. Anything that came with it is long gone, because I didn't figure I'd need it past the warranty expiration.
Also, no this isn't just a matter of me calling again and again to get a good supervisor. I already got a very helpful woman who had me on hold for half an hour as she tried selling my case to various people. She said Sony for Legal reasons won't touch a PS3 they believe to be tampered with. This also means the extra damage happened in shipping, seeing as they never opened my PS3 up.
Also, I don't want a slim...I want a backwards compatable one, damnit!
What I'm probably going to end up doing is taking it to a place in Salem (which is an hour away from me) to have it repaired. They charge the same amount that Sony does for the exchange and that way I can probably get it done in a few days and have it back by the time Katamari Forever arrives from Amazon. I don't want to go through a third party, but they aren't leaving me much of a choice.
