Sony has slammed the BBC Watchdog report on the PlayStation 3 consoles and the alleged high rate of hardware failure known as "Yellow Light of Death".
The BBC's consumer rights show Watchdog claimed that PS3s suffered from inherent hardware problems the company was not satisfying its customers by fixing those problems.
During the show Watchdog team also provides Sony with a technical report for three PS3s which had succumbed to hardware failure.
But, Ray Maguire, MD of Sony UK has raised sober concerns about the exactness of the allegations and also questioned their method of investigation.
Mr. Maguire further added, "We entirely refute the suggestion that PS3 consoles have an inherent defect or other design issue which is akin to any warranty issue experienced by another console-manufacturer."
At present Sony charges £128 for repairing an out-of-warranty PS3, which according the Watchdog is loss-making business for consumers.
