Is the Xbox 360 failure rate higher than we think? And is Capcom's recent release of Dead Rising contributing to the problem? Microsoft and Capcom refute the claims of an EA employee who suggested that 360 failure rates were in the 30-50% range.
someone is going to lose his/her job. hehe.
comon ms, its obvious that the rate is between 50% and 100%. i bet nearly everyone of the launch buyers replaced this bunch of crap.
Obvious by what. Did you take surveys or analysed large groups of 360 users?
No. You're a Sony fanboy, that's why your statements are so dull
"You're a Sony fanboy, that's why your statements are so dull"
You do know that they are refering to the 300 consoles that EA received. 30-50 percent of three hundred is 90 to 150 consoles. Meh.
Yesterday's original story on the subject was pulled at the source's request, and is no longer available.
Xbox People are the Newbs, SOny is the Father of True gaming; SO maybe we'll teach you something this gen like we did last gen with 60% of the marketshare, mere infants.
Edit: P.S. Xbox Blows! Get yourself a real console with a variety of great games, PS3, "Get a Clue"
So should we talk about the DVD problems the PS2 had, because 50% of all users bought a PS2 for the 2nd or 3rd time because theirs stopped working already after a year or so?
Bad quality hardware = Sony
"SOny is the Father of True gaming."
That sounds like some cult scripture.
"...we'll teach you something..."
Are you affiliated with Sony? You spit no truth, merely speculation.
This is nothing more than a sony implanted lie to nock the 360 of course and it`s not gonna work!!
i bet you sony,s ps3 will have the same problems.if not worse.
Sony is not the 'father' of video games...nice try bud.Do you really think Sony was the first in video games? lol thats funny..
Sony is just as much as a newb as Microsoft jagoff! Also if you think xbox blows wait till you get a ps3 it swallows...So ya get a clue nerd
Right, so the claim came from an EA employee. And then it says the whole thing wasn't even apporoved by EA? This is bullsh*t. The article contradicts itself.
I'm not mad. Hell, I had to get my 360 repaired too. I think a higher number of launch units were defective than Microsoft were letting on. But I don't care, I got my 360 fixed free under warantee, the hardware was updated so it wouldn't fail again, and all shipments after launch have been relatively failure free. If Microsoft have to lie about failure rate to avoid a recall, that's fine by me, there's no point recalling a games console just because of a few easily fixed launch day bugs.
I got my 360 two days before Christmas and its been fine so far. I saw the stories the net, but EBGames said they haven't gotten any complaints.
I wasted $40 on a warranty anyway...
Wow, every day it seems like these moronic Sony fanboys are getting worse, like Liquidfart. Honestly, if I was on the fence I would be turned off of buying a PS3 because of these idiots. These morons are doing more harm than good to their cause of supporting the Sony cult. They never back anything up with actual facts, they just spout idiotic comments. For example, this Liquidfart guy says to get the PS3 because it has a greater variety of games, yet there are way more games in development for the 360. Just doesn't make any sense.
I love my 360, but I've replaced mine twice so far. Of the people I know with a 360 more than half of them have replaced it at least once.
Thats not even close to true! Sony has been around longer,then Microsoft retard "uh!Duh!" everybody know's that and if Sony is a newb? how come they won,over the first Xbox that sucked alot of d1ck and balls! dumbass!
and further more TheMart there weren't problems with the PS2 DVD's knowing that your more of a "LIER!" then anybody in here like bullet is doing right now!.
Like Sony implanted this scheme? yeah! right you just don't want to admit that thier failing again as usual there more of a super newbs then ever!
Yeah to bad alot of those developing games suck like BioShock! and Halo 3 looks gayer already and what would you know Dusk knowing your just another Xbox 360 fanboy that sucks alot of Microsofts d1ck alot 247.
J Allard 360=retarded ass! prick!.
