But it's more of an obligation towards MS to do this more than a "Hey let's waste lots of money on a warranty for the heck of it".

But then again, It'll be nice to hear a clerk from gamestop say that the console has a 3 year warranty so now present 360 buyers have more of an advantage now than oldies.

the warranty goes for all 360 including ones from launch

LIKE I SAID BEFORE THE RULING MAJORITY OF THIS SITE WHICH HAPPEN TO BE SONY SUPPORTERS PURPOSELY KEEP GOOD XBOX 360 NEWS 'COOL' (77 COMMENTS AND STILL ONLY 260 DEGREES) SO THAT THEY DONT HAVE TO MOVE IT UP TO THE HEADLINE AND THEREBY GIVING IT LESS EXPOSURE.

This is bullsh!t, no its doesnt. What would give more confidence, is when they fix the problem. Its good and all that they did this, but just going through the ordeal is bullsh!t, PERIOD! im hoping to get my 360 back tomorrow, but im not even sure if its been sent out by MS yet, they claim they did, but UPS only has the billing info and its supposed to be here tomorrow. It been since June 22nd, so more than a month. And thats not even counting the time it took before i even sent it out to them from when it broke (on May 29th), because i was fighting with them to fix it for me for free, which they wouldnt.

3 year warranty is better than what they had, but fixing the problem so that it doesnt happen anymore, would be even better, so anyone who's confidence is strenghten by this, is just naive

we've been selling alot more bc people arent afraid that they are going to have to shell another 400 bucks after 90 days and feel alot more comfortable buying one.

Thats a sweet 360 in that pic. Anways this is common sense with any product, everybody looks at warrenty for exspensive product as a major plus.

"Our console is likely to break on you within the first three years, so we've pretty much covered our asses."

JasonPC360PS3Wii3713d ago

Serously DJ you get pwned everytime you comment, I don't know if I should respect that or just feel sorry for you. But hey cheer up lad they do give out medels for 3rd place they call em bronze.

Al3713d ago

people are buying them right? A console w/ a great lineup of games RIGHT NOW and in the FUTURE, best online service, and a gurantee that my console will be covered if it breaks- SWEET. Finally (i must have said this like a million times) my 360 never broke and i know that's the case for a couple users on this site- STOP trying to generalize the Hardware problem.

Shouldn't you... be. somewhere. else.

I have very high end speakers/HDTV that have 7 year warrenties because they care about thier products(the speakers have little to no defect rate by the way).

Strange logic, so the less warrenty you get the better?. Warrenty doesn't really tell the consumer the quality of any product, well i guess its does higher end companies usually have better or a warrenty while mass produced mass market products have average or no warrenty.

hmmm? Not saying PS3's the greatest or sh*t this is how the average person looks at it no one goes, LOoK! the Warrenty is! to good the product must be shoddy if anything they'll think from experiance that companies with good warrenties are high end and care about their product. Not that what i said will have an effect on the console market one way or the other but i do know its good not bad as you put it.

DJ3713d ago

it's the fact that the warranty has been extended on two occasions within 18 months of launch, in addition to the extremely high failure rate of 20~30%. I'm sure you're happy about the warranty that your speakers came with, but I'm pretty sure the manufacturer of those speakers didn't spend $1.1 Billion in one quarter just to cover repair fees.

It's funny how some of you try the angle of "Oh, I should say something bad about Sony to piss off DJ. He only likes Playstation, despite the fact he owns an Xbox and a Gameboy, so obviously I'll win if I post an immature, anti-Sony message in response to his more intelligent postings. Yeah, that'll Definitely make me win."

Too bad if its pro-xbox, fanboys will always have a way to spin the news in their favour. Example: #1.2, #4, ect
