TL;DR - Great shop. Prompt service. Always gets the job done and makes accidents disappear. Long version - I've come to xCubicle for help with consoles on two occasions. The first time they resuscitated my fat PS3 that had finally suffered a YLOD after years of faithful service. I was able to salvage all of my game saves, and they even installed a more powerful fan to try and give the unit a few more years. So far it's still kicking. Recently, I returned to them after accidentally… Read More Reviews

I had an excellent experience with the guys at xCubicle. I brought my very old first generation 60Gig PS3 in for repair to xCubicle. It had the dreaded YLOD. I figured it would take almost a week to fix, but I got a call late the following day that it had been repaired. Wonderful! After a month of heavy use, it broke again (it's a 5 year old piece of electronic equipment that I use frequently and heavily, this comes as no surprise) and I brought it back to xCubicle. The second repair was… Read More Reviews

These guys are amazing! my ps3 recently died and i had alot of family photos in my system and I wanted some place reliable. i researched around and was thinking about sending it to places out of the state, but read alot of bad horror stories during shipping so decided to do it locally so at least i can talk to the guy that's going to fix my stuff. at first i brought it to my local game shop in brooklyn but they weren't able to fix it and actually recommend me to these guys afterwards… Read More Reviews

I sent in my lightning edition PS3 from a few states over and they had it back to me in great condition a few weeks later. Had an motherboard replacement done by them. Excellent price, very nice and kept me updated. Will be back for any other console repairs 👍

xCubicle is a lifesaver when it comes to repairing, in my case, a 1st generation PS3. Updates come almost immediately and you're treated with the utmost respect. They take great pride in offering only top-tier service. Complete experts who take gaming seriously. Very fortunate to have found them.

My PS3 needed servicing. My game disk would not play once inserted. I took it here to xCubicle and the repair was excellent. The Lady who took care of me was very friendly and answered all my questions. The repair took about a week but the repair was well done. I’m very happy with the service provided to me. I highly recommend anyone who needs their consoles repaired this is the place to go. Thx xCubicle
