This warranty does not apply to any system software that is preinstalled in the PS4 hardware, or is subsequently provided via update or upgrade releases.

These services may include the installation of the latest system software or firmware updates, or service or replacement of the PS4 system’s system storage or the PS4 system with a new or factory recertified product. You acknowledge and agree that some services may change your current settings, cause a removal of cosmetic stickers or system skins, cause a loss of data or content, or cause some loss of functionality. You should back up your system storage regularly to prevent loss of data, although some content cannot be backed up and must be reinstalled by the user. You should also remove any peripherals, non-PS4 system components, and any content that you consider proprietary, private, or confidential before you send in your PS4 system for service. SIE is not liable for damages resulting from your failure to comply with the foregoing, or any instructions that SIE provides to you.
