I remember good old years of RRoD

Not to mention, #scratchgate

And also taking your hard drive to your mates in a backpack, only to get there and find “Error 80072EF3 data is corrupted”

Great one. LAN party Night ruined.

Dont know about the hard drive one, but if you were doing a LAN party then you'd take the whole system... not just the hard drive. As for scratched discs, yeah that was an issue for all of those optical drive based systems. I had ps1 and ps2 scratch discs, same with dreamcast, saturn and 3do. Come to find out that you really shouldnt be moving the systems while the discs are spinning... go figure.

One system i never had that problem with was the og xbox, only because it was built like a tank and weighed just as much.

purple1011d 3h ago

you take the hard drive when there are already multiple xboxs there, but you want your account, ie your level 32 on halo, but your mates only level 12, and you intend to go online at some point, etc.

360 scratched disks even without moving the console, laser alignment was off.

shinoff21834h ago

Darth those scratching disc issues weren't just from moving the console, it was an issue while just sitting still as well

Yes CD get scratched, but the 360 issue was that the disk drive spindle put the disk back onto the tray before it stopped spinning. That was not the case with PS1 or PS2.

The 360 had an actual problem caused by the hardware itself. The disks would get circular scratches from the disk spinning on top of the tray.

And I own plenty of PS1 and PS2 games and none of them have that type of scratches. Where as the 360 games I own all have this exact type of scratch.

This isn't even really a debatable thing, it went to up to the supreme court. Who didn't rule on the case and sent it back to the lower court where Microsoft settled instead of having to face a class action and admit that the 360 had yet another major flaw.

I had disc scratch issue with xbox, even without moving it, but not with other consoles. With xbox if you moved your console, it was game over for your disc as far as I remember. You could hear it.

True. Still spanked the ps3 though.

Great system marred with poor design choices in its early life. From the first redesign on though... it was nearly flawless. and the games hold up remarkably well still to this day.

Kinect would be the only late in life blemish, but one that 'thankfully' didnt last for too long. Its a really cool piece of camera tech... just not that great for games.

purple1011d 2h ago

I actually thought Kinect was good, they could have tried harder with it and found some success,

the only problem was them including it bumping up the price, they could have had a bundle with it included and another without, but they only had the one bundle, so people felt forced into it.

Will the 360 games still be available to buy on Series X|S, or is that going as well?

anast10h ago

The Xbox game machine that almost succeeded.

Reaper22_8h ago

360 wasn't perfect but it was a huge success.

shinoff21834h ago

Out of the 3 it still ended up last. It was a success in a way but Xbox went backwards right after.

S2Killinit3h ago(Edited 3h ago)

MS went backwards in the middle of that generation. They stopped buying games exclusivity because it became too expensive to buy exclusivity once there was a solid number of consoles in the market; and MS simply did not invest in the in-house ability to make games. Strangely, MS didn’t want to get involved in the art side of gaming. Leaving the second half of that generation barren.

Reaper22_9h ago

Love that console. I still play it every now and then.

For me the game with perfect combat was Lord Of The Ring: Shadow of Mordor.
