I have a broken 40gb ps3 with a faulty bluray drive but i have a serial for a ps3 slim which is in warranty.
If i call sony and give them the slim serial do you reckon that they will swap it at the door.

I saw a serial floating about a while ago but cant seem to find it.
Anyone had any experiance with this guys?
Thanks

ive done it a couple of times in the past, always worked for me, i exchanged an old 60gb for the new 250gb slim, courier just exchanged at the door, sony tell u that the courier will check the serial but they never have with me, just give it a try u have got nothing to lose and could end up with a new slim model, let us know how u get on

dont tell them that its a faulty blu ray though, cos they will just take it away and repair, u need to tell them it has ylod
