GAME Care Help.

10 Replies 549 Views Created 09-04-2012

My Blu ray drive has just bit the dust unfortunatly so cant play no disc games until it hets repaired.

I bought GAMECARE cover for 3 Years with GAME but the GAME shop i bought it from is now closed down. Does anybody know if this GAMECARE is still in place after all the trouble that the company has been through.

 

For the record it was Battlefield 3 that broke my ps3 was fine until they released that 1st back to karkland 700 n odd mb patch, after that i saw a massive change in the ps3's behaviour. Bad EA very bad :(

 

Any help would be appreicated. :)

Some Game store will let you take the ps3 instore & switch it for a replacement.

Sending it off is the best choice as if the ps3 is beyond repair you get about 3 quarters of the cost back.

you're covered with Allianz who will deal with everything for you, though GAMEcare is 2 years warranty, not 3 :) so you would have got your standard warranty which included accidental damage from day 1 then a further year ontop of that

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

Most links on their site are disabled and it takes a bit of guesswork to get behind the links. :)

The truth is EA are getting greedy with its online pass plus the scams they do with playstation network & XBOX 360 live is unbelievable.

i had Battlefield 3 back to karkland package but when i downloaded the the latest update Battlefield 3 it wiped it off my playstation 3.

It says you can re-download Battlefield 3 back to karkland free again in the playstation store but it lies as you have to re-purchase it again paying money. EA are scammers same as for playstation network & XBOX 360 live for letting this happen.

No you don't. If you did some research you would find it in your download history.

 

Stop spreading false rumours.
