Karam Elahi from SpawnFirst reports: "Gooseman1977 has run into somewhat of a predicament. He returned his original faulty Xbox One, only to have it replaced with another faulty unit. Check out the video below. It’s full of feels."
Wow, that seriously sucks. Feel bad for the guy.
Wow, thay guy sure have bad luck, 2 in a row? just wow
just wrote a decent comment on another feed about the failure rate issue and i get dissed for posting a link to the support thread on xbox forums... idiots on this site amaze me
Ouch!! Poor guy.
What can you do Grizz? I got down bubbled for.pointing out that boot from standby is not a cold boot :)
@GrizzliS1987 Even with a reasonable failure rate someone is going to be the unlucky one that gets two broken ones in a row. It's just bound to happen given the volume of units sold.
Well, if he is an Xbox gamer, I am sure he will be OK with getting six or seven systems replaced if Microsoft track record proves valid. It really sucks though and that looks bad on Microsoft end. Two systems in less than 24 hours? Both broke? That's a serious issue. My condolences
WOW, 2 in a raw ?! that really sucks i feel the dude pain
What is he putting into the side of the system at the end? From the screen, the COD disc is inserted. the eject on the front is not working so he presses the power button then he unplugs the power from the unit. The unit would need power to eject the disc because it is a slot loading drive. Tray loading drives offer a manual release but i dont think slot loading ones do. If im wrong...sorry. As to the game in the system, doesnt the menu offer the ability to eject the disc? Meaning if it is a faulty eject "button" the disc could still be ejected by command from either the controller or onscreen prompt.
Sh!t. That stinks. Hope he gets another one that works. Hang in there fellow gamer.
The third time's the charm.
kneon do you the numbeer of xbox sales till now? NO, no one know but microsoft and maybe they even dont know.
how does he expect the manual eject button to work when he unplugged the console?? am i missing something? i thought the discdrive needed power to eject
Microsoft should just give him a free xb1.
Yeah that's nuts. I guess its possible, but you wouldn't think it unless you read about it.
only @ xbox folks :)
Come on man I'm a Sony diehard but this is the exception not the rule. Let's stop getting into mud slinging. Two great consoles came out and there will be faulty ones it's inevitable.
still better than being caught playing a game on a PC
i would much rather be caught playing on pc than be caught using voice commands on any device let alone an xbox
It wasn't a perfect day for this guy.
lol i see what you did there
LoL wooooow ms, come on, sabotaging also? I was going to get titanfall for the pc anyway.
its happening again uh oh.
I've a feeling we're gonna start reporting everything that happens to some random guy's PS4/XONE now.
And this guys dont want the consoles to brick and have other problems.He takes the power cord of the box without the box is even shut down completly,serious who the fuck does this ,i certainly dont unless the console had a complete freeze and that was not the case.Well bad luck for him,i feel sorry.Eletronics are to be handle gently.
What did he say about the pin? I couldn't understand him. What did he say @ 0:36?
Shocker, he had COD in the system. I found it hilarious that most people interviewed on Spike last night were most excited for Ghost. Don't worry man you can play the same game on your 360. Seriously what is the point of buying an Xbox One to play a last gen game?
I swear, the only company you can ever trust with launch systems are Nintendo's. Geez!
I don't wanna sound like a fanboy or anything I cannot wait to get a PS4 and some time a X1. Anyway though I have to agree with you Nintendo is probably the most reliable when it comes to the launch of hardware. I have a launch Wii U Deluxe and it did have a freeze here and there but after the firmware updates. It runs faster and better then before without any freezes anymore.
From my understanding the WiiU just got it together with the consoles UI.
It wasn't too big of a deal though, and a slow ui is a pretty far cry from consoles coming in dead on arrival or overheating. Just saying. That said I can't until I can pick up a PS4.
And he pays 500plus tax for both.sucks lol
1000$ paper weight
As I have long said...Early Adoption is a bit like playing roulette. You never know when the ball will land on black. PS4 and Xbox One will both see their share of DOA systems at launch and the internet will broadcast each one!
Sucks for him but I guess it's okay when it comes to xbox Having broken consoles and I guess they are used to it too lmfao
The same thing happen with me when I got a 360 finally the 3rd one worked for a few months till I had to send it off to MS.
Here we go again
Lol. Buy a ps4 instead dude
Wow what bad luck. Nexus 7 2013
That's some bad luck. I hope third time is a charm.
This guy better not try to ever gamble...Horrible odds :\
The gen just started n he will already be on his 3 xbox wow
Similar to PS4, more than half of the xone Amazon reviews are one star, complaining about broken disc drives.
Why is he hitting the right corner. You have to press hard and hit the left side for the disk to eject.
599 for 720p upscale. plus broken consoles. I remember i payed 800 bucks for my ps3 and it still runs like a champ. no issues since launch day. My brother went through 3 xbox 360s. 3 OF THEM.
I would be furious
Now that's just bad karma or the universe trying to tell you should get PS4:)
