this is another reason why xbox fails. that is why the xbox was so cheap to begin with to produce. i'm surprised that microsoft has not recalled 360. this is why i own ps3 and wii.

Well, let us hope the rate is still not 50 percent or there should be some trouble for this company. I mean, seriously, companies rarely get away with stuff like this and Micro seems to have done a great job. I know for fact they have leased space on UPS grounds in texas because it saves them shipping so it is still happening but at 50% I find hard to believe. I hope.

I don't believe these numbers all three of the consoles numbers seem inflated

Continuing Patronage
I bought a 360 and loved it. When it red ringed just after one year I decided to be rid of it. Eventually I purchased a PS3 and haven't looked back. None of the exclusives on 360 appeal to me. Well, that's not true. The exclusives that DO appeal to me are eventually ported to PC so I can have my cake and eat it too. Microsoft has created a shoddy product that I can no longer support.

IWith my lucky if I had an xbox360 it would fail on me like 10 times by now in 3 years since I already lost 2 PS3s.
This gen does have some very cool games but I did not like it and I am thinking to go back to play games in a high end PC.
here is why:

-Bugged games all the time on Xbox360, PSP and PS3 and 1 in 1000 on the Nintendo's vgs but they lack a lot on graphic power.

-High resolution games but all I see is the 720P on most exclusive games .
When I bought a PS3 I was thinking to play all games in full HD and so I would forget about the high resolution on PC's games.

-I already lost 2xPS3 , my Nintendo Wii and DS had to go to the maintence x2 .... and if I had a 360 it would have broken as well since the 50pct faillure rate problem.

-Unfinished or unpolished games all the time since there is a war bettewn MS VS SOny on the exclusive games area.

-If I remember right the PS3 was supposed to get some MMoRPGs and Aion was one of then. Now I see that Aion will remain exclusive for the PC.

As I was drinking a soda while logging onto N4G and saw the headline , "54.2% failure rate" I regurgitated out the soda all over my keyboard, fell off my chair & almost died laughing.

Soo...
15m xbox 360 consoles are broken? Oh dear God.

Microsoft is the sheer image of evil, and Bill Gates is its representation on Earth.
JackBNimble  +   1890d ago
While I do agree that failure rates are out of controll I have yet to see the Game informer source to prove this artical's even valid.

Meanwhile my PS3 is dying!
BenderDGreat82  +   1890d ago
100% for me too...I've had 2 consoles and both have died on me. 54.2% is pretty damn believable.

What a surprise....
Javier19  +   1890d ago
LMAO What bullsh*t

Statistics mean nothing to the individual.

I've had my 360 well over a year and not a problem, PS3 for 2 and not a problem.

Yet out of all my friends (more have xbox) Only 2 I know have had RRoD, yet I know 6 people who have had there PS3 die on them, and one of them had it happen twice.

fr0sty  +   1890d ago
if 50% of 360's croaked, that means MS only has about 15 million actually working 360's on the market, while they refurbish the dead ones. That would put PS3 at a nice lead if you took that into account.

That said, last gen the same could be said about PS2. I'm willing to bet that at least 40-50 million of those have had DRE's by now.

Disgraceful failure rate
I agree that the failure rate is terrible and it is very very very annoying when your 360 fails. I am on my third one; but the 3yr warranty keeps you locked in along with the games that you have already purchased and xbox live; the system is a lot fun when it is working. Also the replcement with a arcade remains the cheapest option ( after all I already have the hdd. I am sure that this has been part of M$ strategy.

My 360 will go out of warranty this December then I will replace it with an arcade if it dies. I own a PS3 but have yet to find games compelling on this system although this year x-mas looks promising.

that is what you get. 54%? dude come on don't they have quality control in MS? Can the government do something about it? this is so wrong.

if you buy an xbox you deserved what's coming.

RRoD COMING SOON TO 360 NEAR YOU!
teto83  +   1887d ago
so the 360 is crap...how is this news?
ignorant consumer = xbox owner

MS needs to get their act together imagine if toyota had this failure rate. i bet even the goverment would get involved cause consumers would b!tch about it, too sad xbots just like to get it quietly in butt.

so much owning... lol
