As if Sony have not been through enough this year they are taking another hit with the London riots as their warehouse has suffered arson damage. Sony has warned that UK deliveries of CDs and DVDs could be affected after its only British warehouse for products was the subject of an arson attack as the riots rage in the city.

The 20,000 square metre warehouse has been burning since late on Monday at the site of rioting that has spread from the Tottenham area, and a spokesman for the Japanese electronics and entertainment conglomerate in Tokyo did say that this is likely to have an impact on deliveries.

Avid gamers of PlayStation 3 are up in arms with remarks made by a London policeman that the yob violence is the fault of video games such as ‘Grand Theft Auto’. Gamers are outraged at this suggestion, some saying they have been playing video games for many years and if there were any truth in this statement then why aren’t the 100’s of millions of gamers committing such acts on a regular basis.

Sony has had its ups and downs over recent months, but a survey revealed that consumers’ confidence in the PlayStation 3, Sony and the PlayStation Network, has not been weakened by recent events such as the unauthorized network access and a huge percentage of customers said they would trust Sony going forward. The mindless damage to products caused by the riots in London will certainly not cause the faithful to throw in the towel.

Sony will never lay down and play dead, although their reputation has taken a knock lately, they have sprung back from the production disruption first set off by the March earthquake and tsunami in Japan, then they had to contend with the now famous hacking, and the latest damage caused to their only warehouse in the UK, but the popularity of the PS3 lives on.

Sony has 2011 sown up, and it is determined to fight to dominate 2012, thus keeping their reputation intact, and with PlayStation 3 still the system to beat, the world of gaming moves on, with more speed, power, and high quality, also superior graphics, motion-sensing controller, network capabilities, and more importantly superb games, is it any wonder the PlayStation 3 is still the system to beat.

A spokesman for PS Pros a PlayStation 3 repair service working out of both London and New York USA said “we have worked on thousands of PS3s and do consider it to be the best. We offer a same day PlayStation 3 repair facility second to none and our prices are the best the customer will find anywhere in London. More importantly we offer a 90 day warranty on all PS3 repairs from repair date”. He went on to say “we think we are a ‘one stop’ facility as we repair, in the fastest time possible and if our customers are not local to London we can pick up the console and deliver it back. Although we specialize in PS3 repair, we can fix almost all consoles”.

For all you faithful gamers out there that have ignored all the setbacks Sony has encountered of late, make sure your console is kept in pristine condition, but if things should go wrong you have the PS Pros for all your PlayStation 3 repairs.
