Xbox 360 Out of Order? For Loyalists, No Worries

Imagine your blender breaking down twice. The vacuum cleaner giving up the ghost three times. The espresso maker repeatedly going kaput. Then imagine replacing the item with the same model over and over while keeping your brand loyalty and sanity.

Stephano Nevarez can. Since he first bought his $400 Microsoft Xbox 360 in 2006, it has failed three times. Each time, he sent the game machine back to the company and waited weeks for a repair or a replacement.

"There's nothing in the house that breaks down as much," said Stephano, a 15-year-old high school student from Salem, Ore.

The story is too old to be commented.

MS should stop producing x360.

no one wants one.

It is a defective and a low powered console.

x360 is the least selling console in the world including NA

it is dead in JAPAN and EU

BTW ps3 is beating x360 all around the world including UK

www.vgcharts.org

ps3 is beating x360 10:1 in JAPAN and 3: 1 in EU

www.vgcharts.org

UK FIGS last week ending 5th AUGUST were:-

ps3 8016

x360 5 ,570

IN EU last week 37 000 ps3s were sold vs just 18000 x360s

X360 is dead!!!!

cookiemonster3549d ago

they're not producing the defective models anymore. retailers just bought them so they're still in the market

once they get sent in to repairs they get the mods + extra heatsink

caffman3549d ago

Dead in the EU? Are you on crack? As a British 360 owner I can inform you that the 360 is hammering the PS3 over here.

heroman7113548d ago

ps3 is outpacing the 360 in some parts of Euro but it dosent mean no one wants one.

I am so sick of these articles of poor retards with broke systems. Go get a ps3 or a wii. Oh thats right it isn't so bad that you keep buying the console or sending it in for repairs. Go get your money back and move on or shut-up.

It's hard to have sympathy when my launch console it fully operational. I can afford air conditioning to keep my system cool in my house and keep the vents cleared of any restricive items that may block airflow. Even your computer will fail if your house is hot and air-flow is restricted. I read of one idiot putting his console in an entertainment stand that had a port hole in the back for wires and a glass door (make-shift oven)funny, his failed too (hands in the air) well I wonder why!? Some of these idiots sabatoge their system out of ignorance of how hot a processor gets.

Did you know tempature of a processor runs hotter when you play an on-line game vs. playing it off.?

ShiftyLookingCow3549d ago

the people who have broken systems are not retarded, its the way the newspaper puts it that is exaggerated and retarded and ofcourse the usual suspects who don't even own a 360 crying about it

MikeIsOnFire843548d ago

...Your statement was alittle uncalled for bro.I had a unit since launch that just broke down on me,and I've taken very good care of it.These things happen.
