Top 5: Things that can go wrong with your Xbox 360

MisterRandom writes: "I suppose that "Top" is not really the best term for this but after yet another Xbox 360 departing to silicon heaven through me exchanging it due to frequent disc read errors I have decided to create a list of the Top 5 things that are likely to go wrong with Your Xbox 360. It should be noted that I think the Xbox 360 is a fantastic console it is just a shame about the build quality or rather lack of it."

wow dont people got better things to do other than make a list of something that we already know and dont care about?

Turns out this guy hasn't. Which is pretty pathetic. How could this article possibly help in any way? It's like saying a TV will break if your house is in an earthquake. Great, but not a lot I can do...

What if the TV breaks even without an earthquake?

I don't care how you spin it! There are no special unpredictable circumstances that can be considered responsible for all the problems with the 360 (unless you consider rushed development and absolute disregard for your costumers as "special circumstances").

If your brand new hardware breaks down after a few months of normal usage, you know it's poorly built and lacks quality. And that is simply unacceptable. Or are you trying to tell me that all those bricked 360s so far, malfunctioned during/after an earthquake? Because that's a LOT of earthquakes!

alright, but for the bots RROD or other hardware issue never really exist.

Gets instant recognition in public. People who don't even play games know about the issue and when they see that pic they instantly recognize it as the "Xbox". Funny stuff.

Its a valid article, yes they do go wrong and more importantly in the 360's case they have a high rate of failure. Thats not to say the PS3 doesn't have issues and an article of how the Blu-Ray may fail or you could get the yellow light of death would be just as valid though to be fair to Sony their consoles problems don't appear to be at such a high rate as Microsoft's. I had two RROD's and traded my third 360 in for a PS3 and have recently bought a 360 again. Unfortunately consumer electronics don't appear to be as robust as they once were which is why I take out cover plans such as Sony's Continuous Play scheme and bought an extended warranty at the shop I bought my 360 Elite from.
