If it is second hand and you don't have the recepit, if it breaks you will have to pay £145 to get a replacement - or you can take out continuous play (http://continuousplay.co.uk) for £5 and then all the breakdowns on the PS3 are covered and you get a replacement for no extra charge.

Nah, all you'll need is the serial number which is on the back of the console.

I think as long as the machine is less than a year old then it will be covered, you can get out Continual Play this will extend your cover, dont think it matters you dont have a receipt bud :Thumbs:

In that case I'd ask the contract providers to give you some sort of receipt or proof of purchase.

 

You shouldn't need a receipt though to sign up for CP or to make a claim. It was only when Sony themselves were doing the free exchanges (as opposed to Domestic & General) Sony asked for proof of purchase.

Re: Buying a 2nd hand PS3?

I don't know if this helps but my ps3 was bought new over a year ago, and three or four weeks ago the blue-ray drive failed no disks would load. I contacted sony they only wanted the serial no of the ps3 and what shop i purchased it from, no box no receipt plus they were aware it was out of warranty  (only just but it was out). The next day they sent a van to collect the console after telling me it would take 2-3 weeks (gutted :smileysad:) 5 days later they sent me a text saying my console would be delivered back. Fantastic!!!!!! console back in 5 days no charge great service. so you should be ok without the receipt as long as the console is under a year old.:smileyvery-happy:
