But I think this is much further below the standard than previously thought, since Xbox 360's failures have dragged the figure upwards at an alarming rate.

Same thing can't be said for 360, which is is built to fail. lol

Yup you heard me.
3 years warranty! Now that is amazing customer service with a smile.
Did I mention it covers your 360 for 3 years? Yup 3 whole years!

*fine print*
It only covers the RROD problem.

Sorry for the sarcasm but I have been through more 360 units then people would believe if I told you.

It is a fantastic feeling firing up my PS3 knowing I have nearly as good a chance of hitting the lottery then it failing on me.

end rant

It's amazing how I say my 1st negative thing on here an I get 2 bubbles removed. I bet if it was something negative about the PS3 I would've got bubbles up. sad

Wow, two out of every one thousand. That's pretty darn close to just saying "no failure rate at all."

NikV33938d ago

They took there time and got it done right.

MaximusPrime3938d ago

yep, microsoft made a huge mistake releasing it early. It is all about money, isn't it Microsoft?

It's always about money...with Microsoft and Sony and Nintendo and General Motors. If Sony was so damn generous and cared about the gamer they'd charge $50 for the thing.
