1. 360 RROD
2. 360 with sound and no video on dots going across a dark screen http://forum.teamxbox.com/s... (which is why i had to send in mine.
3. 360 scratching games(it even cracked my original Gears disc. my friend gave me his copy which got scratched to sh!t but luckily the online portion still works.
4.more than one occasion where a story about a MS product nearly burning down and has burn down a house before.
5. " The disc is unreadable, try cleaning with a soft tissue/towel whatever...... which was happening before my 360 took a SH!T on me.

see you had to resort to past consoles to come up with your list, all i needed was one. MS just refused to do a recall on the 360 since they have the money to shell out to extend warranties. i got an extra year warranty for this refurb i got back.

Sez 4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

wow dude. you are really trying. so i guess i have to entertain this comment of yours. ok. first look how you are stuck on ONE console with hardware problems this gen. last gen the xbox didn't have problems except a power cord defect which you failed to mention that the ps2 had the same problem. then you tried to follow up with disk scratches which are few. same has be done with the ps1 and ps2. because the ps3 hasn't had problems with disk scratches you feel like sony make great products. all that really means is that it took you two. count it with me now TWO gen's to get their sh!t together. thats not a good thing.especially since sony is a hardware company. whats the excuse for that.

you see how you comment only limits you to one system. while my comment exstends to most of sony products.(which includes consoles,laptops,accessories) i can go on and on about the crap product that sony has done over the years. while you are still limited to the 360. instead of you getting so butt hurt about what i said. should of just stayed in the hole you where in and be quiet.

@below.
" Not even mentioning the 360 which is such a huge disaster that it would have put any other company out of business" yet with this and other problem with sony products why are they still in business right.

@jukken
wow i must be really upsetting you guys. because you are bring the big "DOG". LOL i can do this all day. again i bring up the past because you guys are so quick to bury it and forget about it. just because you have one good system out of three doesn't make you the most reliable. and the only reason why sony is recalling them. is because they are trying to avoid another law suite (whict is starting to become common with sony)

Panthers4326d ago

Yea and Microsoft has such a better reputation LOL. Not even mentioning the 360 which is such a huge disaster that it would have put any other company out of business.

Sony is known for how great their hardware is the world over.

kspraydad4326d ago

aware of the sheer VOLUME and SCOPE of ALL the electronics SONY produces? I think they do a pretty damn good job considering.

juuken4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

1)the ps1- having to turn it over to play. (In what way? Give an example and please provide details.)

2)ps2- with the dreaded dre issues and scatch disk

(Nothing compared to the RROD. At least Sony did not lose 900million with the PS2. The PS2 is still a reliable console and this affected only a few people. The RROD has affected thousands of people.)

3)laptop batteries- over 10 million batteries had to be recalled. not to mention people laptop being fried.

(This was in the past. Stop bringing up the past. Should I bring up the issues surrounding Vista?)

4)now this- now 400,000 has to be recalled.

(Oh wooow...400,000. I should say that all 360's should have been recalled when the RROD was rampant in 2005-2008.)

Sony's products are very well made dear. I have a Sony T.V that's around three years old and it still works well.

You failed in your attempts to slander Sony.

Try again.

And what the flipping hell...it says in the article that it's not a serious problem-the laptop was only capable of minor burns.

HOLY SH*T, the MSDF is on full patrol today!

Draperc: Yes, it's not that bad anymore but before it was a disaster.
And I'm not saying the PS1 or the PS2 aren't capable of having issues but they're not as rampant as the RROD. My uncle has the original PS2 and it still works. I have the original PS1 and I'm sure it still works because I had it for a long time.

Electronics break, but Sony's failure rate is very low.

DarK-SilV4326d ago

VISTA is a problem bigger then Sony problems

Dyingduck4326d ago

Vega got owned.

Please don't be a retard - every SINGLE electronic have a failure rate (1-2%) - not worth mentioning

However, hardwares like Crapbox360 have a 33% failure rate - worth mentioning

FU*K, XBOTS get DUMBER by the MOMENT...

Draperc4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

I actually had to turn my ps1 over cause it wouldn't read the disc, eventually I ended up getting a new one, still works today.

And vista was bad at first, but it's not that bad anymore, at least home premium isn't, using it right now, and aside from my webcamera not being compatible with vista, I've experienced no problems.

cr33ping_death4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

im not stuck on one MS product its all i need to show you how crappy it is made and how desperate MS was to get that headstart on SONY. now count it with me 3 almost 3 years and even their so called elite consoles are still getting the RROD, you would think that they would get their sh!t together, falcon chip this and blah blah chip that doesnt matter when the damn thing still breaks down and has to head to Mesquite Texas here in the U.S. defend MS all you want that aint going to change the fact that i had to send in my 360 once to get repaired along with countless others, and that the 360 is just manufactured poorly and sh!t more power to those who really do have launch 360's that havent crapped out on them. and i would have stayed in the hoe(oops i mean hole) i was in but your mom was starting to bore me.

Sez 4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

and you can defend sony all you want. but it doesn't excuse the fact that i myself had to pay for 2 repairs for the ps2 $150 each time to get the dre fixed. but the third time it was repaired for free because they lost a law-suite and had to repair all dre riddin ps2's for free. did i get anything for my troubles? no. so while you are b!tching about your 360 and how many time you had to send it back for repairs. regardless it was FREE. say it with me FREE. while me and the many people that had to PAY for repairs got [email protected] by sony.

Pain4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

unlike M$ and RROD / disk scratching....

Xbots fail. go away.

and Vega u retard buy Extended WARRANTY then moron. if not yes u will pay......

"no. so while you are b!tching about your 360 and how many time you had to send it back for repairs. regardless it was FREE. say it with me FREE. while me and the many people that had to PAY for repairs got [email protected] by sony."

--i liked that part where u said XBOX was FREE.. ITS CALLED 3 YEAR M$ WARRANTY EXTENSION.

fools like you just amaze me. go suck M$ teet.....ill bet only SONY products u ever owned where PS2's and cheap used one too boot.

oh and if we playing the Number game.... 400,000 laptops recalled out of care for the customers is a hell of alot less then the "SHOULD BE RECALLED 18,000,000~ NOT RECALLED CUZ OF GREED M$ tactics.

Sez 4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

yeah dude. i owned a used ps2. yeah whatever help you with the that excuse. since i brought the launch ps2 (day one)and it died 6 months after purchase then after it got repaired it died again 3 months later.yet i also owned a ps1. but you are so desperate to prove me wrong. thats the excuse every sonyfanboy says." you never owned a ps system". like i said whatever helps

"no. so while you are b!tching about your 360 and how many time you had to send it back for repairs. regardless it was FREE. say it with me FREE. while me and the many people that had to PAY for repairs got [email protected] by sony."

--i liked that part where u said XBOX was FREE.. ITS CALLED 3 YEAR M$ WARRANTY EXTENSION.

yeah i liked that part to. if my 360 gets RRoD ( key work IF) it's repaired free of charge. couldn't say the same for ps1,ps2. try alttle bit hard [email protected]

themyk4326d ago

you know whats weird. i got my ps2 the day it came out. and never had a problem. and ALL of my friends had ps2s and none of them had a problem. i actually never even heard of the "dredded dre" problem until you 360 kids started talking about it. my launch ps2 still works. my brother in law has it and plays rock band on it every night. it's even been modded and it still works.

i never had to turn my ps1 over either.

the only thing i ever had to do to a console was put another cartrage on top of the one that i was playing for the nintendo 1 to work some times. but i think everyone did that.

sorry to hurt your feelings and his. but cr33ping_death just got owned.

@jukken
i must really be getting under your skin. again i have mention the many defect of sony products. and i can ammitt you are right MS should have recalled the 360 for RRoD. we would have had a better console. but so should sony with their problem products too.(laptop batteries,laptops now, all older molels ps1 ans ps2 for disk read errors) i mean it's only fair that all companys should recall all faulty product. or should it be only MS per your logic. right

juuken4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

He got owned in *what* way exactly vega?

If Microsoft would have recalled the 360 in the first place, we would have better made consoles by now.

You = Instant fail.
You = Should not have six bubbles for your ignorance.

Don't worry guys...the other idiots will come soon.

DavidMacDougall4326d ago

Your outnumbered and lost give up you look desperate now

sonarus4326d ago

In the past 4 yrs i have been thru 3 laptops. 1 compaq, 1hp and 1 vaio. Vaio has lasted the longest and has given me the least problems. I just recommended one for my lil sis and she seems to be enjoying it i hope she doesn't get burned:(

ThanatosDMC4326d ago

Wow, a laptop every 1.33333333 yrs?! Do you drop it that frequently? You should try modding your old ones.

I just bought two HP laptops for me and my girl. I bought a tx2500z for myself and got her a dv5t for gaming.

Eddie201014326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

The number of things that Microsoft has manufactured is minuscule in comparison to the thousands of things Sony has manufactured, STUPID argument. Another difference is that Sony either fixes the problems within months of there discovery or they recall the the Item, where Microsoft still hasn't fixed the problem with the Xbox 360, at least not to a satisfactory condition.

Sorry, reply is in wrong place. Hopefully Megaton08(Megatron08) gets the message.

sak5004326d ago

Forget sony / Hp etc. Go Asus.. Our products are one of the best ones out there.

Stryfeno24326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

No worries here...I do not own a VAIO, those laptops are way too expensive.

7 people suffers light burns LOL. I thought Sony product are reliable?

spandexxking4326d ago

at least they did the right thing and recalled them. unlike the tactics MS used to get a foothold this gen.

PirateThom4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

400,000 being recalled...

RECALLED

You know, what a company is supposed to do when a product is faulty.

Dyingduck4326d ago

M$ refused to recall faulty hardware...

Let's do simple math:

11 MILLIONS > 400,000?

Shut the f*ck up Xbots

DavidMacDougall4326d ago

Best point made on this whole page because its the truth

Bubbles for you

juuken4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

Well said Thom.
360 fanboys are...IDIOTS.

Qdog4326d ago (Edited 4326d ago )

That's bucky O'hare...I still have my launch PS2, the fat one, with the original 20GB HDD, and Linux, going on eight years now. I still use it. I maintain it as one would maintain personal grooming... I have NEVER had a problem with this original launch PS2, and it has even been through an entire deployment to Afghanistan with me... I find it hard to beleive that without dire neglect, and abuse, that your PS2 died like that. However that last sentence was my opinion, not an accusation. I understand that there are always circumstances, but this console has been through hell and back with me, and it's age shows, while it's function is flawless...

themyk4326d ago

i neglected the sh1t out of my launch day ps2. it's lived in 4 different states with me. i can't count how many times me and my drunk buddys walked through the controller cords while someone was playing and pulled the thing off the shelf. 2 years ago i even did a case mod to it so i could play burnt games. and the thing still wont die.
