In Japan, you can now buy spare PS4 parts, but will the service come West?

New service lets local shoppers pick up spare parts like an HDD bay cover, bay bracket, screw set, or power cord.

As part of a new service offered only in Japan for now, Sony has begun selling individual PlayStation 4 parts for local gamers, DualShockers reports.

The service won't let you build a PS4 from scratch, of course, but you can pick up spare parts like an HDD bay cover (¥1000/$10), HDD bay bracket (¥500/$5), screw set (¥250/$2.50), or power cord (¥450/$4).

Right now, there's no word on if this PS4 service will be extended to gamers in Europe or the United States.

The site also points out that Sony already operates a similar program for PlayStation 3. We have reached out to a Sony Computer Entertainment America representative for comment.
