First Confirmed Reports of Broken Xbox One's in the Wild

Last week, prior to the PS4 release, the larger gaming media pounced on every report of a PS4 problem like rabid animals. This week, with the Xbox One coming out tomorrow, reports of issues with the system are generally being ignored. But with the system technically already launched in parts of Europe, we’re starting to see issues pop up along with video proof. (Xbox One)

Update It has also emerged, that a few Xbox One's are having problems, with the rejecting of discs, as a vine has shown. Although take all these reports with a pinch of salt, clarification from Microsoft should indicate actual fail rate. http://stickskills.com/2013...

As with the PS4, which turned out to be normal launch-window failure rate, let's not jump the gun.

NO!! We need to assume that this issue is a LARGE scale thing and ignore official reports of less than 1% failures. ALSO lets not forget...we need to claim that this is the NEXT RROD in a pathetic attempt to see the other console go down in flames because it would somehow fill another pathetic rivalry void with in us all.

Obvious sarcasm is obvious....but maybe you can see how pathetic some of the xbox fans were about all this. Electronics failure rates happen especially on NEW hardware. Heck most electronics have somewhere between 8-10% failure rates
This is no different. Less that 5% is considered an outstanding accomplishment. I know PS4 AND Xbox one will have launch failures....every electronic does. Heck when the iphone launched it had a 15% failure rate.......

Put things into perspective before being a ridiculous fanboy making claims.

This was obviously going to happen. A lot of fanboys jumped on the PS4 failures, and a lot will probably jump on these failures. Unless we start seeing an RROD-level of failure, I think we can assume everything is okay. Plus, the console is huge so there should be enough ventilation.

i presume it will be fixed if he just grabs the update on pc and puts on usb,aint as tho the xbone is really broke

although not being able to play without updating kind of sucks
nightsurge  +   402d ago
Seriously? Lol fanboy website gets approved on here... This is a video of someone unable to download the update. It is NOT a broken Xbox One/DOA/BLOD unit like with PS4's. Not saying their won't be any broken units, but this is not one of them.

Also, for those unaware, Xbox Live is undergoing last minute maintenance/switch over right now, which could very well be the issue with whoever seems to have gotten their Xbox One already and is trying to download the update.

You sound really excited, I wouldn't say you're a fanboy but I would say you are putting a bit too much energy into this silly console wars debate. Why do you care what fanboys of whichever camp think? That's what puzzles me the most why do people care what the fans of whichever console think? If only 1 out of a billion consoles fails and there are a few losers harping on it, so what? let em, why should anyone care anyways. Pick the one you like or pick em both but lets stop caring what other people say.

This is what I wrote 5 days ago when the PS4 hardware issues were being blown WAY out of proportion.

"Those that would make this into something it's not might want to take a breath. The next console is about to be launched, and if anything, they are the ones that have something to prove when it comes to reliability.

All electronics have a failure rate. Until it's a known fact what the percentage that rate ends up being it's a moot point. Personally I don't think either side should rub salt in the wounds of a gamer going through hardware issues. We gamers are like kids on Christmas morning when we get our shiny new consoles to welcome the dawn of a new era of gaming. You have any idea how discouraged the people having these issues must feel? I've been there and it's nothing but frustration. Anyone that gets enjoyment out of another's dismay has issues they might want to go see a doctor for and get checked."

I did have to laugh at this article.

"Based on the video, it’s possible it’s a bad power supply judging by the light on the power brick. If it isn’t that, it could possibly be something else"

At least they covered every option reason of fault.

There are going to be issues occuring with launches like these. The PS3 had them, the 360 had them, the ps4 has them and inevitably the XB1 will have them. The generation will get through them

This is what I feel as well. Just the act of laughing at anyone in this situation, or even talking like "oh it happens, no big deal", is just disrespectful to anyone who runs into this. It's just sad the lengths we will go to defend or bash a toy. It doesn’t even matter if we agree about the point being discussed, if one likes MS and the other Sony, there will be no compromise. Also game on man, enjoy your new console.

Apparently it's not the actual update but a recovery & the complexity of that support is better done on a case for case basis.

Because of the complexity of this customer support process we’ve actually removed the page and we will work with customers directly to make sure they have a smooth experience.”

1 half broke ps2 - this guy still works on occasion but hard to complain. it had a of life in it

2 broken xbox's - each lasted a solid 2 yearsbefore they comepletely stopped but both had disc read errors afetr only about a year

4 broken 360's - red rings. first time it happened was the day i picked up the original gears. annoying to say the least

1 broke ps3 - had since about 1 year after launch, decent life span but also wasnt used much. got a new room mate late last year, it broke in march. he used it a lot. makes me wonder if i had used it as my main system if it would have lasted as long

wii - still works but is wicked loud. not impressive life though since it prob has 50hrs total use in all the years ive had it.

"720p, just saying" lol

Anyway, the same I said on the PS4 articles is that there are bound to be broken consoles, because that`s how modern electronic devices are. You can`t check all of them before shipping and there will always be some that fail. It`s very unfortunate for the people suffering from those issues.

That said I don`t want to see any people who where going like "the PS4 has widespread issues and is broken" come here and say that this is only isolated while they pretended that for the PS4 that had a small amount of people suffering from issues was widespread but when the same happens to their console of choice it`s a non issue.

THIS NOT A PROBLEM YOU TURDS LOL. just trying to bring things for absolutely no reason at all. The update is failing obviously the update is either not connecting or not authorizing to time zone differences. You guys just love to bring up anything to make the X1 look bad... Guarantee that update will succeed just give it up time for the servers to be fully up.

there is another video on the site that is linked to this article and it shows a xbox one refusing to turn on, i swear down no on this reads past the headline

If it would be time zone difference we would have seen a lot more complaints by now given for how long the console is out in Australian and New Zealand, because all of the people would be up in arms.

The second video shows one not booting up at all. And because you Xbox fans like to make up names I call that issue the "Orange Brick Light of Death" or short OBLoD

This is why I don't go running out to midnight launches for hardware. Its also why I will NEVER take a full day off from work the day of hardware launch or a super popular online game. I know better....launches ALWAYS have some hiccups and issues.

Anddddd we see this guy taking it back and getting a PS4 lol But seriously I think everyone should wait after the console has been out for about a week to a month before criticizing the hardware and looking at the faults between both the ps4 and xbox one.. In reality the failure rate for ps4 suggests only a small percent of failures compared to how many were sold. Im assuming it may be similar for xbox one, but only time tells.. My PS4 has had no issues since I got it day one and I don't think the Xbox one will have a 50 percent failure rate like the 360.
