EX: "It's no secret that Microsoft's quality assurance team was a little lacking with the 360 early on in the console's life. However, has anyone ever noticed that Xboxes break at the most inconvenient time possible?"
well then get a ps3 instead.
not totaly, it doesnt read disks anymore.
one of my ps3's did that too, replace the blu-ray lense
shh, PS3s don't break. Oh wait, tell that to my BluRay drive in my 40 gig. Anyways its a sad time when any console breaks. It always seems to happen at the worst time to.
this is the first major hardware failure i have ever had in twenty something years. the 5200 was a problem but that was just the controller.
I wish I was that lucky I've had 1 psone, 3 PS2, 3 Xbox, 2 360 and, 1 PS3 break on me. All disc drive problems. The last reliable console I owned was a N64.
the n64 had a lifetime warranty because there were no moving parts. it was the last truly reliable console.
o.O...enlighten me =P its never convenient! its always INconvenient when a console breaks down. seriously -_-
Microsoft knows something.. we don't know. That's what I think. -.-
or because you know a system has this type of reputation, like a whore in the neighbor hood going out messing around with that package, why would you still try to wife this tramp? Why get another.
lol I'm still trying to wrap my head around your analogy. That's quite a unique choice of words.. thanks for the laugh xD On a serious note though: I'm on my 2nd 360, which isn't that bad.. Love playing Gears 2 horde :) and can't w8 4 fable 3
Well, the PS3 is like a faithful and cute spouse...whom is very boring. She isn't going to toss your salad or anything like that...not in the bedroom anyway. While the 360 is like the whore you described, that f&cks for a buck and does something strange for a piece of change. The latter is more exciting.... Below: Married? I do not envy you -_-
contrary. while my wife does everything, not only do i not have to pay for anything extra, i don't have to worry about getting burned. and def not more then once Edit Top: sorry i'm not, nothing to envy. But i do know how i want my wife to be
Trouble is my more exciting 360 crack whore just gave me gonorrhea. /s
A few more games and I'll buy me a 360. Just need a few more to interest me, MS, you can do it! And no, I'm not being sarcastic. A. Wake was the last game on 360 that interests me. Fable 3 may be the next.
Wait so your telling me your console broke this many times and you still support it and wont switch? The one about the Dew one breaking before it even came out is hilarious, I was supposed to get one of those. Yet here I am playing on a launch 60GB PS3, still have a launch PSP, and PS1 and PS2's all working fine. Not to be a fanboy but I dont see why someone would put up with it. If my PS2 broke constantly id switch to Xbox, if my PS3 broke constantly ill defo go to 360 as its cheaper. I dont care how many games I own for it, its breaking and i want to play games without worrying. It doesn't matter what time it breaks, its ALWAYS inconveniant. You telling me your not playing COD this whole time before Halo came out? Now your entertainment is breathing air. The thing is no other industry would get away with it. Imagine if Samsung HDTV's constantly broke? For a pure fact look at Plasma losing to LCD, they have the better picture and specs but the fact everyone knows about the burn in, fading over time, and all the other issues no one wants them and chooses LCD everytime.
if it makes you feel better I have a fat ps3 that got the ylod in a month and my launch 360 is still playing halo reach with no prob. I think it works both ways guys. Get a 360s they are very reliable if you are having issues with the 360.
lol no i no ur lieing about that lol lol
@Soldier one. we wouldn't hear about it in another industry. my best friende works in Sony Warranty dept and there are certain TV models that they expect to have pretty much 100% failure rate - 46" X series from about 1.5 years ago is one definite one. no exaggeration but i'm sure the PS3 fanboys won't believe me because i mentioned their deity. it is the only fact i know about them. you are full of assumptions, nothing more. unless the media tells you something it didn't happen. hey dude, there is a real world out there... beyond the media, a world that you don't hear about all the time.
More like a bad time to have an xbox.
its more like always a bad time Edit: @jazz4108. dude go play some jazz.
dude go install some firmware I hear the ps3 is damn good at it because it takes its sweet old time. Don't get me started on all the game installs.
whats wrong with the installs?..we have a max HDD space of a possible 700 GBs who cares.... and firmware updates? 5 - 10 mins, OMG ITS LIKE MY LIFE IS FLASHING B4 MY EYES/s
installs are annoying sure, but they're nothing compared to consoles dying on you multiple times and having to wait weeks to get a replacement every time.
PS3 updates take like 3 mins at the most for me. But i have FIOS, i dont know about you cheap bastards. And 360 updates take about a min. Funny what some people cry about.
I had four 360's break on me since I first brought one back in 2006. So yes they break and just because I said 360's break down a lot, now I'm going to be labeled a Sony fanboy, told "I don't have a 360" and disagreed until they get tired of clicking it. This site gets to be too much sometimes.
they'll shell out money for another console right away M$ can always count on their deluded fans
mine died the day red dead and alan wake came out, bought them both, went home and as soon as the 360 turned on I got the RROD
Thx for sharing your expirience my friend, how do you feel about that?
Ill sum the article in a few words My xbox 360 broke a bunch of times God the crap that gets approved on this site is unbelievable
but microsoft admited there mistake and fixed or replaced your xbox at no extra charge. Mine broke once and i got a replacement within two weeks and that never went wrong once. I now have a 360s and a 80gb ps3. If your ps3 breaks what happens because im sure you dont get the same servise as microsoft provide
"but microsoft admited there mistake " lol, sure, after several years, when every sites, even biased ones, admitted that, and talked about more than 40% of dead consoles, disc scratchs, etc. Only pure xfanboyz can support that design failure. I choose normal garanty + superior and reliable products, against "1 more year garanty" for failures, anytime.
bring out yer trolls
Everything electronic is prone to failure.... just not as prone as 360's :) i am on console number 5 (including a modded/banned/now broken one) i have just cancelled xbl, im not buying a another console.
Have you noticed that every time a xbox 360 breaks involves consoles that are constantly connected to live.
To have your console break. I've been through it, don't wish it on anyone else.
