EB Games ensures that it will try its best to retain your save data when your console is getting repaired. This also includes videos or photos that have been saved too.

In order to get your device fixed, just drop it off instore at EB Games. After that, they ship it to their Refurbishment Centre to get it repaired. Your item will then be shipped back to your local EB Games store between 7 to 21 days. All repairs have a 3 month warranty attached.  We've contacted EB Games and unfortunately not all consoles can be repaired. They cannot do repairs for the PS4 Pro yet. They also told me that no Nintendo products are part of their repair service either. This includes 3DS, Switch Wii U etc.
