they surveyed 5,000 people, you honestly think that there have been 15,000,000+ consoles that have the RRoD or any other error needing you to send it in? While I do believe that a lot of the older consoles had an extremely high failure rate, i highly doubt it is at 15,000,000+, half of the xbox360 sales.

I've gone through 3, on my fourth. I wouldnt doubt at all that half of them break. Game informer interviewed a crowd at e3 asking them if they were still on their first xbox, only one person out the crowd was

yeah dan is right here. those studies are bullshit. 5000 isn't even close to getting an accurate failure rate percentage.

sounds like some anti-xbox propaganda.

5,000 is a number pulled out of their ass. try a place a bit more legit with numbers, because no one is buying that. how hte fuck are you buying an 8th, you know you can renew a warranty for only 60 right...

how hard did you run your console? how long were your sessions of gaming? most people dont ask those questions, and they should. because, believe it or not, the more you run something the shorter its life gets. the graphics card in my computer is a great example... i ran that bitch hard for 2 years straight, and now im paying for it because it was being over worked constantly. and my computer gets more air in the case to keep it cool than the xbox could ever do in a lifetime.

Just want to add to this percent.

My 360 red ringed on me today. Get it back in two-three weeks, but hey, it's free.

Eh.

If mine does it again, I'm just giving up on it until the next iteration of the Xbox. I've only had it happen once though so I guess I'm blessed haha.

Lucky bastard. This is the first time I've gotten the red rings, but I still had to take it in 2 years ago. Shit sucks.
