IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE FROM PLAYSTATION




Recently, an announcement was made by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe regarding a possible safety concern with certain AC Power Adaptors. These affected AC Power Adaptors were manufactured between August and December 2004 and supplied with the new slimline PlayStation 2. They were identified as having the potential to overheat and cause an injury hazard.

As you would expect from Sony PlayStation, the quality and reliability of our products is of great importance and we regard the potential of this issue to be a serious concern. This is why we immediately issued a safety recall for all affected AC Power Adaptors and is the reason we are writing to you today.

If you do own a black slimline PlayStation 2, please visit our recall website

http://www.ps2ac.com/welcome.asp?redirect=ps2_em

You will be taken through a step by step guide to check whether you have an AC Power Adaptor that might be affected and a new AC Power Adaptor will be supplied to you completely free of charge.

Please don't ignore this mail.

Although we recently printed safety notices in the national press, it is possible that you may not have seen them and have continued to enjoy using your slimline black PlayStation 2 as normal.

We would like to take the opportunity to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for taking the time to read this important safety message.

Yours sincerely,


Sony PlayStation
