Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced that it is now offering extended protection plans for the PS3 and the PSP. The catch is that the plans have to be purchased while the machines are under the original warranty.
The PSP has a couple different plan options with one covering shipping and repairs for defects at $29.99 for a year and $39.99 for two years. The PSP also has the same plan with the addition of Accidental Damage protection covering crack screens from drops. The plan with accidental damage is $39.99 for one year or $49.99 for 2-years.
The PSP plans cover both the PSP Go and PSP-3000. The PS3 plan is offered for a year for $44.99 and a two year plan is $59.99. All of the plans will be available starting this month.
