    Do you still want a PS5 or not?

    You should persist with the broken PS5.

    by fix do you mean fix it yourself or it will be fixed under warranty by sony or an authorised repairer? don't try to fix it yourself, you'll almost certainly void the warranty and you may not be able to fix it.

  • i was thinking to fix it on my own, but now i won't…

    Yes, it would be fixed under warranty

      Just ask for a replacement console

    Definitely refund for me, can't beat new. And you never know if your fix doesn't come back to bite you in the future. Then again hopefully the fix isn't a refurbished version?

    Just get it replaced. They usually have priority consoles for replacements.

  • Alright thanks, guys I will go for a replacement…that is what my friends are forcing me for too

    What sort of question is this?

      A soliloquy? "To be or not to be, that is the question."

      It's "R U OK?" day, is OK to speak your mind and how one feels.

    • The person who said "There is no such thing as a stupid question" was wrong.

    If anyone remembers Herman's Head? You can imagine the drama in OP's mind.

    • I bloody loved that show. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw the trailer for Inside Out… "hey, they ripped off Herman's Head!" :D

      • I didn’t realise one of them became Lisa Simpson. Couldn’t correlate the voice until some TV show, had all the people doing the voice over. It was her natural voice too - lol.

        • Yeah, Yeardley Smith. It's all a bit hazy now, but I vaguely recall there being a reference to this in an episode of Herman's Head. She was talking to somebody on the phone and yelled something like "No I do not sound like that cartoon character!".
