should tell what went wrong and caused the big failure rate ? will that make any difference when it come to customer buying new console ?anyone

EDIT: An insider told me that Global Warming is behind the high failure rate

The rumors of a high failure rate have kept me from purchasing a 360, but how much can MS cop to without exposing themselves to massive liability? They might be better off sidestepping the issue by getting the 65nm 360 out the door, because I don't believe the 90nm 360 has a 25 to 30 percent failure rate... I believe it has a 100 percent failure rate with 25 to 30 percent having failed so far.

That article is terrible.

They seriously have no idea what they're talking about. I mean, yeah they got some of the facts right, but it's obvious that person doesn't know sh*t about the Xbox 360, or video gaming in general.

OH. MY. GOD.
The way to keep the 360 from overheating and thus preventing motherboard warping is to keep the console well-ventilated so that it can cool itself properly? NAWWWW!!!
Christmas Eve 360, still works perfectly.

I am so pissed about that,spending over 400 dollars to have a system die on me,i still have warantee none the less,Microsoft should have been patient in releasing the system,instead of worriying so much that it will come ahead of sony now they are ppaying the price and now they will never come ahead of Sony cause people will prefer to buy reliable hardware regardless of how much game content it has,me one of them,it's a sad sad thing.
