Shoddy journalism alright..trying to rain on the 40GB parade...don't worry 360 fanboys you will always have a console exclusive feature known as the : RROD...

I challenge fanboys of to take a stroll to Read the new batches of reviews for all consoles from actual owners. You will be shocked what dual owners say. Quality has NOT been swept under a rug. One guy spent $900 for an hour of play. You only have one chance to make a first impression. These 3 powerhouses have all power to get all 3 in everyones homes. This is what makes this "war" so interesting. Nintendo pulled out of a GC "slump" and Sony is working the best ever under pressure.

Year 2125:

Xbox 360- An extremely famous system that no console can compete against................. In terms of failure rate

PS3 Limps on and on4059d ago

The rumor also says that the sku is selling well. hehe, I already know it's fake.

The PS3 can't get sales, that's the problem not failure rates.

Failure rates doesn't even affect sales.

how many 360 sales are 2nd time buyers? "my system broke, now i have to get a new one." people. I replaced my first playstation because it broke(of corse that was like 3 years after i got it).

EDIT: and yes, i know its covered under warranty, but there are those who dont use that sometimes...what about the people who bought their console before the extended plan?

"Failure rates doesn't even affect sales."

That's gotta be the stupidest thing I've heard come out of a fanboys mouth.
