Nintendo has also updated its warranty terms following FTC letter

PS4 warranty update FTC Staff Warns Companies that it is Illegal to Condition Warranty Coverage on the Use of Specified Parts or Services

Nintendo has changed its warranty policies after the USA government warned them that they were violating the law. The FTC has also issued the same warning to Nintendo and Microsoft, so it's very likely for the two to also update their warranties very soon. Sony used to prohibit using third-party peripherals with the threat of a voided warranty, but now the warranty is only void if the third-party peripheral damages the product. Now Nintendo and Sony have reworked their language. They were given a 30 days notice to respond to this warning or serious legal action would be taken.

Nintendo has also made changes to the language in its USA warranties, with an addition to the Limitations section on its site stating that warranty will only be void if it's clear that the use of non-Nintendo products is the cause of the damage to the console.

As tech enthusiasts, we've all come across "warranty void if removed" stickers.

We later found out that those six companies were Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, ASUS, HTC and Hyundai.

Sony has now updated its warranty agreements for users in the USA and Canada that will allow gamers to open up their consoles without voiding their warranty.

Now, however, it's a little less restrictive and states that it won't fix consoles which have been used with unlicensed peripherals, only if it's clear that the damage was caused by these peripherals.

The first is in regards to that warranty sticker and the use of third-party products.

Sony Interactive Entertainment has made some changes to the warranties to its PlayStation devices in the United States and Canada. Now following that, Nintendo too has announced that they have updated the terms of warranty for their hardware systems.

There you go, PlayStation-consumers. The only time the warranty will be void is if it's clear that the user has removed the sticker, opened the console and done damage themselves. Our updated warranties state that the warranty does not apply "to damage caused by" use of the product with an unlicensed peripheral.
