You bought this console from ebay, gumtree, OCAU, etc you would be fucked.. Grats to EB I say.
I guess that EB Games manager woke up in a good mood. That kind of thing isn't really EB's fault once you've gone out of the time period for returns/replacement (hence why they advertise it everywhere & the reminders in-person). But that's awesome outcome, enjoy
"Fuck Microsoft" just doesn't have the same ring to it... wait...
EDIT: Whoops, I accidentally reported your post instead of quoting it!
Good result I rekon. Make sure they will agree to continue to replace banned consoles (if you are given a 2nd hand one again)
Overall I'd be pretty stocked with the outcome.
Lucky I'd say.
i don't even understand what you are saying here.
Wasnt fit for purpose when it was sold, its not like it was 4 years down the track. It was sold as defective.
Im sure if you contacted fair trading and made some noise the store manager would of have to play nice whether he had his morning coffee the poor snowflake.
EB could turn around and say - maybe you got it banned? They took Mads word for it and offered a replacement. Seems fair!?
Yeah but could always reply to Sony heres my receipt of purchase 4 months ago, retailers playing hardball and if Sony says 12 months ago you go to fair trading.
Yeah but didn't have to screw around. Winning.
I feel some people on this planet just cant ever be pleased.
Nah, cause proof of when it was banned was provided by Sony (It was around mid year last year).
I don't understand why they didn't know why it was banned?
They don't keep any records of that sort of thing?
If it was stolen wouldn’t that mean it’d also have to be returned to the original owner?
So ended up getting a brand new 500gb console (original was 1tb), plus Far Cry 5 and God of War, for $50 extra.
That's the best outcome
Nice. Both M 17+ games, I hope he's old enough
So, once this plays out (and hopefully EB sort it all out for you) - A perfectly good Play Station is now headed for landfill because of Sony DRM?
Nah, they said it’ll be sent back for repair, the. Sent back to eb for resale.
There are weirdos who never go on the internet with their games. If I'd bought it, I never would have known.
Good outcome. Of course EB wouldn't want to alienate a customer, they want you to keep going back for games. Selling used consoles isn't their bread and butter.
