    The official figures.

    PS3 | 1%
    Wii | 1%
    Xbox | 50%

    This is actually the official numbers

    Yeah its something like 30%.
    I don't think you can say the console itself is reliable, but the service Microsoft give for broken consoles is reliable. 2 Of my friends recently got the rrod, for one it took 2 weeks and he got a month free gold and my other friend's took 7 weeks and he got £50 worth of gear and games :P
    Where'd you get that xbox signature from T3kNi9e?

    Thats not bad service at all... ive heard it both ways on the State side.. eaither they were taken care of well or not at all...

    I bet they treat the overseas markets better, just to try to keep them..

    this warranty covers the 3 red rings of death, all other forms of failure are just as common as you see problems with the wii or ps3. 360 has a 3 year warranty, meaning, when ps3 and wii owner's 1 year warranty is up, if they fail after that they have to pay, whilst 360 is matching its number of hardware failures to a 3 year warranty. you guys still find stuff to bitch about and a few of you dont even own 360s from what i can guess.

    frummage, those stats you posted at complete bullshit, dont even bother posting stuff like that, unless you have some site thats like ps3fanboy.com saying it so we can all laugh at you for believing it.

    newer 360s do not get rrod as often (has anyone who got a 360 for christmas even got it? because i havent heard anything about those 360s yet), and you know what? 360 has the best games number of awesome games out of any console out right now. people play 360s a LOT and get the rrod, which is why they care about having to be without it for a couple weeks, its obviously a great console when people go on the forums to bitch because they cant have their 360 for a couple weeks and justifies it.

Can someone else try it, according to that, even with the billion dollars wasted on warranty, they still make close to 3.78 billion dollars. Its actually more, because I went by the price for the cheapest console. Thats crazy, I actually thought they would lose more than they gained. I didnt think it could make that much. Unless my calc is wrong.
    they actually loose money per console sold

    ya i know they didn't make alot, every one always pops up charts showing like 30 bucks per system...

    but if a 5th of the overall sales is put back into fixing consoles, they can't be making any profit on consoles yet.
