A quick question I own a PlayStation 4 console bought as a bundle and it came with a 1-year warranty. Now I have received an offer by email from them to extend the warranty for about $49.99 to add two-years coverage with no deductible. They have another option for accidental damage, but I was considering simply the repair coverage.

This is the first PlayStation I have ever owned so not sure how trouble-free they are.

So far all is running well with loading discs, connectivity, online downloads etc. no real problems or hint.

{I did buy an extra controller off Amazon Prime} everything else is original.

Is this worth the money? In other words have any of you had problems let's say 18 months later and found out no coverage and had to get a new system or pay for a huge repair?

This is the link to the coverage site http://protectyourps.com/?EMC=eng_PPP_20141222&pos=b&linkname=pscomwa_cta1_b&psu=156416723 that I received from Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC

Thanks for any thoughts.

It's insurance, it's worth it if you think you have a good chance of needing it. I've had a PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Wii U and 2x new Nintendo 3DS XL for quite a while now and never bought any insurance, all are just dandy.

If you're just going to sit your PS4 in a place where it won't be moving much, I'd say nah. If you are the type of person that takes care of your stuff, you'll most likely be fine.

I bought mine a little over a year ago and it's still running perfectly, also I have about a half a dozen people I play with regularly / semi-regularly and they don't seem to have had any problems with theirs either (and they bought it near the launch of the console).

However, 1 person who bought the Destiny bundle has had to contact Sony to get his fixed because he had network connectivity problems. I don't know how much it cost him though.

I appreciate the input and recommendations above - it helps to weigh it all out. It is true I don't move the console around much - I have it in the vertical stand option. Thanks again.
