I wonder, is this just for the UK, or for the US too?

"with all the talk of failure rates and stuff. You'd think microsoft would be doing this."

They would likely loose their shirt if they did that... You offer something like that when you know you'll make money out of it. SO you trust your product and just rake extra money from insurance.

It would be a good marketing idea for the 360, but they will have to wait until they have more units with the extra heatsink, and glue, and so on...

Microsoft already sells extended warranties. Additional 1-3 years I believe. Given, the turn around will vary from anywhere from a few business days to several weeks.

The only thing that's different is that the Sony extended warranty covers accidental damage. The PSP is the only system with a large risk of accidental damage. It wouldn't really make sense for the 360 to cover accidental coverage seeing as there really isn't (nor shouldn't) be a demand for it.

I would imagine that sometime in the future that Sony would extend their protection plan to the United States.
