Playstation is a popular gaming brand with its own home consoles, accessories, magazines and online gaming platform. Because it is so incredibly popular, people from all over call Playstation every day.
People call Playstation customer support for many reasons including:
Playstation offers phone-based customer service in different countries. Make sure that you are calling the service for your geographic area. In the United States and Canada, customer support is available by phone Monday through Friday, 9 am through 6 pm Pacific time. French-language customer support is available to Canadian callers.
Playstation users are generally happy with the service provided by Playstation, though many callers sometimes feel that they can get quicker resolutions by visiting the company's forums. The advantage to online forums is that experienced players are on these boards at all hours and can often provide good advice for dealing with all kinds of in-play and tech issues.
One thing to keep in mind is that Playstation does not provide support by email, which is upsetting to some players who are used to this level of service. If calling Playstation is inconvenient, you may need to use the forums or live chat options.
Many issues can be resolved over the phone, including technical support for your online gaming account as well as questions about operating your devices, or inquiries about games.
Repairs and returns will require in-person action, including packing your item and either shipping it back to the company or returning it to a retail partner. You can, however, coordinate these steps via Playstation's phone-based customer service.
If you have ordered a Playstation magazine subscription through a third-party subscription service, you'll have to contact that service for questions about delivery issues, refunds and cancellations, or changing your address.
Contacting the retailer that sold you a Playstation product directly is likely your best option if you have a duplicate game or the item is within the allowed refund/exchange window for that retailer.
If you get off the phone with Playstation customer support and are unhappy with how your call was, or was not, resolved, don't fret. You still have options.
First, take a minute to catch your breath and de-stress. Contacting Playstation again while you are still angry and frustrated is likely to backfire. Instead, try writing down or typing out what happened on the call. This will be useful when you contact Playstation and explain why you were unhappy with your previous contact.
Next, write out your most desired resolution: Do you want a refund? A product credit? A simple apology? Knowing what you want from Playstation customer support will help you in your quest for a resolution.
