A survey of over 500,000 gaming console owners conducted last month showed that XBox was the most failure prone gaming console on the planet. While PS3 was not as vulnerable as Xbox 360, it sure had a lot of catching up to do with Nintendo Wii.
Apparently in a bid to better appeal to customers, Sony has offered an extended warranty policy for its PS3 and PSP customers. They are not free, of course. But at just $10 above the warranty cost for one year, these are surely a bargain.
