Check your consumer protection laws. In some countries, like mine, consumer protection laws require product to be repaired or replaced at no expense to the consumer "for the reasonably expected minimum lifetime" of the product. In the case of a console I'd say the reasonably expected minimum lifetime would be 3 years. So here if my console was just over a year old and it died without me doing something to break it our law would require replacement or repair without cost to me. This is why I never buy extended warranty because the law covers my ass and it doesn't cost me anything extra.
Where do you live?
"Games are a trigger for adults to again become primitive, primal, as a way of thinking and remembering. An adult is a child who has more ethics and morals, that's all. When I am a child, creating, I am not creating a game. I am in the game. The game is not for children, it is for me. It is for an adult who still has a character of a child."
