Apparently If your PlayStation 4 breaks, Sony doesn't want you returning it full of spiders or other infestations.  Which is fair.

I've worked on computers that were absolutely disgusting.  I've found dead roaches, roach feces, and even a mummified mouse in one.  At least they're clearly stating that if you ship them a console in that condition they won't subject their employees to biological hazards.

Bugs like to crawl into computers, especially computers that are in older places.

Couldn't that also be a danger to the ecosystem? Bringing insects not native to a land into another country I mean? Was always curious on this, as I wanted to import dragonflies as a kid, due to the mosquitoes in our area. :p

Good choice of words using "insect" instead of "bug"

Yuck. Always use a mask when disassembling a PC for cleaning and/or repair. You have no idea what kind disgusting stuff you could end up breathing in.

 

 

Although I think this is a joke, wouldn't you have to open your console to find out if there are bugs in it, voiding your warranty. Sneaky, sneaky, Sony.

Back when I did computer repairs, we used to refuse to service anything that was tobacco stained/damaged and/or bug infected.

 

I don't want to be breathing in or touching those things!

Yep. Any electronics used in a house with smokers should have their warranty voided immediately.
