Top 10 Tech Train Wrecks of 2007: Xbox 360 Makes List

Xbox 360 hardware woes

Microsoft really hit it out of the park when it came to the Xbox 360's software-consider the slick Dashboard, the persistent Achievements and Gamertags, and the top-notch Xbox Video Marketplace. But the actuall 360 hardware is a disaster: chronically glitchy, prone to overheating, and all too susceptible to the "Red Ring of Death," which signals a critical hardware failure. Indeed, I'm already on my second Xbox 360 in barely a year, and just about every 360 owner I know has had to send their console back to Redmond for repair.

M$ should just buy out Sony game division so they can build their gaming system for them.. I mean how much is sony's game division worth now adays?? oh that's right nothing right now because its losing Sony money!

Surprising how you would make an assertion based on no statistics and no numbers. Can you show that they make $0? I think not. And furthermore, it is absolutely impossible for a company to buy another company's division unless the company with trouble puts it on sale. Do we see that? No, we don't. So, basically everything you 'try' to explain is completely useless and utterly stupid.
