    wow, why are you posting this?
    this has no facts, and just random unnamed people saying blah blah, it could be true, but even the article says MAY, where you put it as though its just cold hard facts.

    although they're not facts, the issue remains that the failure rate
    is considerably higher than M$ will admit.

    here in the UK, micromart have stopped fixing 360's with the 3RLOD.

    Its much higher than that,well a least for the first consles sold i read on a site where they had a survey of like 2'100 360s sold, 66% of the people had had 1 360 break, 23% said they where onto there 3rd+ Xbox and 11% had no problems. Pretty crap. Think these where bought before the start of 2007.
    Just got my Ps3! The Wii is now gathering dust until Super Smash Brawl!

    you say that first line as though its some tradition that microsoft builds crap hardware.
    this is their SECOND piece of hardware theyve ever made.

    @brian, that survey just sounds incredibly stupid and false, but then again, those 2100 people who took the survey couldve been the people who had broken 360s, made about it, so they went online to see if anyone else had broken 360s, and took this survey they found on a website page related to broken 360s.

    there's obviously something amiss with the 360.

    i know the original xbox went through 6 hardware changes (mines a v1.6)
    but there was never this much fuss about failing consoles.

    the PS2 went through around 16 hardware changes iirc.

    let's hope they get it right sooner rather than later as i'm hoping to
    get a 360 elite for the kids around christmas time (that's if it gets
    released before then over here).

    Give me 2 secs Sovieto and il see if i can re-find the website

    Yeh, your probally right, i right here now can admit i hate the Xbox 360, Im a Sony fan but even i can't help but notice that 60% seems exagerated. I see what you mean, obviously this is only been seen by people with 360s that have broke and are looking for people with the same problem.

    Id have a guess and say at Launch the realibilty may have been in the 50% region or more, but now its more realible, id say 15% - 30% is a fair assumtion.
