Awww come on man...

PS4 version US$9.99 -> https://store.playstation.com/en-us/pro ... PPLICATION
Vita version US$2.99 -> https://store.playstation.com/en-us/pro ... PPLICATION

Game exactly the same, no bundled DLCs. The only diff between Vita and PS4 version is the 4-player local co-op, whereas in the Vita version it has only online 4P co-op. Buying a DLC activates it for both PS4 and Vita versions. So u're paying US$7 for the 4P local co-op.

i guess you living in 2020 now. ps4 only released mar 2014 in singapore. US release date is nov 2013.

mine bought in aug 2014. not even 4 years old. i did a bit of research. looks like it's a real PITA problem. something to do with the APU. and it's not easy to fix it. saw a video on it.
well, if i do get the proper tools, maybe i will try to open it up and see if it's just some cockroaches laying inside the console.

I watched a youtube video explaining how to clean ps4 pro fan. Looks damn easy, just remove the top casing, no screws or breaking warranty labels. But problem is many pple in the comment section including me couldn't remove it. Either you are Hulk or you have to use tools to pry open from the sides. I don't want to risk breaking the casing so forget it.

I also followed youtube video step by step diy, replaced my vita slim analog stick. Ordered parts from china, cost only 1/4 of what local game shops are charging.

Managed to pry it open with bare hands. Requires alot of force. The clips unlocking sound is scary, almost like it's going to break.

It's better now.

1st time encounter this and I'm very disappointed in qoo10. Package worth $105, ordered on 5th, was scheduled to be shipped by 9th. It was in stock. On the 11th sent an inquiry to power seller, no response. This seller has been reliable and it was a repeat order. On the 14th, upon realizing that this seller no longer have any items in their store catalog, I decided to ask qoo10 cs for help on the 14th. I got a boilerplate reply about how they are not responsible, where to check est shipping date and if it's not shipped by 9th, I can contact them again. Well that day was 14th. Somehow the cs was living in the past when he/she replied me. Since it seems like nobody want to help, I clicked cancel/refund. Of course I thought it should be immediate refund since they didn't even ship it. I doubt they even have stock in the first place. But qoo10 wants to investigate first and it would take AT LEAST WITHIN A WEEK! I wonder at most how many weeks? Are they going to just pm seller like I did, repeatedly until seller reply? It feels like there is ZERO consumer protection. If it says 'delivered' of course you should investigate. What's there to investigate if it's still 'scheduled for shipping' 5 working days ago not counting sat, sun. Seriously wtf!

Yep, Qoo10 has ZERO customer protection, mostly because it has no money to burn. I think most of the time it's just message passing ie Qoo10 CS is a glorified messenger. You have to rely entirely on the integrity of the seller to honour and process your refunds/returns.

I once ordered a GTX1080 from qoo10, took more than 2 months to finally process the cancellation. GTX1080 so u can guess the amount.

Also perhaps the arrangement with Qoo10 sellers favours the seller as it portrays itself as a mere broker.

Compare with Redmart. Even though Redmart is also a broker of sorts, if you call them for restitution for example missing items in a big order, they immediately refund you. Why? Cuz they push the refunds directly back to the suppliers. Meaning to say their arrangements favour the buyer. Plus I suppose Redmart has money to burn.
