I swear If my Xbox 360 is beginning to red ring... Im done! PS3 here we go...

I'm done with the stupid Xbox's. I have had 6 of them. They all had one issue or another.

To tell you the console froze one time. Then twice I saw a green wavy line across the screen. Then several times playing NCAA 2009 the graphics just blacked out and came back.

I've never had a problem with a Sony product. I think one of the PSP's I sold to a Genmayer had a dead pixel on it that I couldn't spot, but other than that, the only problem my Sony systems have had has been my own OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG richness and tendency to not remain committed to console gaming.

The simple fact that "red ring of death" is now a household word should be sufficient red flaggage to keep you away from the 360

I'm on my third.

On the plus side my power consumption keeps going down with each new one.

220 watts -> 175 -> 150

54.2% seems low. i suspect once all Xbox 360s are a year or older, we'll see the true failure rate.

Wow, I would have jumped ship at least #2 or #3. That's ridiculous. No way in hell I'd give a company 6 chances to have my business. I gave American cars 2 chances and I'll never buy another one again. They're absolute crap. No wonder smart Americans themselves won't buy American cars. A $35,000 car should have not such such poor reliability with proper maintenance like I did. My two Japanese cars on the other hand are flawless and I'm convinced they'll run until the end of time.

I hate game pirates so much but if MS sold me 6 turds, I'd become a 360 pirate. Electronics from such a big company should never be so poorly built.

When deciding what system I got that was the deciding factor. I thought the 360 had a nice library of games I'd like but the hardware being so riddled with issues kept me away.

Or it could be him, I had a core launch unit last me til the day after Borderlands came out, not a single problem ever. People just need to learn how to properly care for their stuff.

Suggesting that your unit did great to last a few years is not impressive.

Because I was clearly trying to turn this into some sort of dick measuring contest.

I have had mine since release, never had one problem.

Edit: Now that I say that it will probably red ring in a day or two.
