Wii is 9 Times More Reliable Than Xbox 360, 4 Times More Than PS3

SquareTrade, the largest independent warranty provider in the world, recently have done some research on comparing malfunction rates for Wii, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

What has been unsurprisingly found, is that the Wii is the most reliable of the 3 consoles, followed by PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 respectively. The Wii has a failure rate that is one-fourth of the PS3 and one-ninth of the 360.

If this is true, then does that mean that the PS3 is roughly twice as reliable as the 360? I'm having a hard time believing that.

& 50 times less powerful than the PS3. 100 times less fun than the 360 or PS3. Mine is just collecting dust in the basement. Even my little bros don;'t want to play it.

I dont think the Wii will have overheating problems

I got YLOD on my 60GB model a few days ago (showing COD4 online to a friend). My friend also got it playing Singstar on that very day. So weird.

I'll buy the SLIM, and put my fatboi to rest (after I get my years of data backed up *crosses fingers*). I just hope the first batch of SLIMS are more reliable (since they run cooler).

I think the Wii is so reliable because its Nintendo and because if you have a Wii...its usually just sitting there unless you have some friends over.

Lot of people don't play their Wii on a daily basis like the PS3 or Xbox360.

badz1493359d ago

this can't be said about the PS3 but the 360 is something else - it is flawed downright to the design level which makes it fails many more times compared to the PS3 and Wii!

Syronicus3358d ago

Oh yeah, that's because it IS the GameCube... Sorry.

Where u get your gaming info?Cracker jack boxes? Complete BS. PS3 is THE least played console. Proven every time the reports come out. Sad that as little as they get used they break so much. if they got the same play time as 360 or Wii those numbers would be much higher.

Im not surprice with the Wii, nintendo built a reliable system.
Sony did to.

Gamecube Slim has great hardware. xD

but on a Serious note, I'm not surprised, Nintendo has always been the highest quality of hardware, I've never had one of their consoles break on me.

As for Sony, I've NEVER had a problem with their hardware either.

I am pretty sure it is reliable because of it's abilities. I should say ability because all it does is play games. That's all it is really good for anyway. I am pretty sure that the majority of its owners only play it a fraction of what PS3 and 360 owners play on theirs as well.

Thats because the wii benefits from using older technology. The 360 and PS3 are running more tasks and doing more calculations.

Saaking3359d ago

The Wii and DS are EXTREMELY reliable. I love the DS, it's gone through so much and it still works perfectly. The PS3 is also very reliable and has amazing exclusives. I think we can all agree that the 360 is a piece of sh1t.

TheTeam063359d ago

The 360 as a console is Sh*t with a capitol S (as you can tell). Some of their exclusives, however, are worth playing. When it comes to buying the console, I wouldn't recommend. You'd be better off going to a friend's house. Since it's prone to breaking alot (and me not believing in buying the same console twice- once it's broken, it's over), I'd say risk breaking your friend's instead =D

kaveti66163359d ago

Playing your friend's Xbox 360 rather than buying your own still implies that someone has to buy an Xbox 360. If everyone took your recommendation then no one would be able to play any games on the 360 unless they went to gamestop to play the demo kiosk.

Microsoft Xbox 3603359d ago

The 360 is a pretty reliable door stopper.
