it's pretty hard to believe a console having a 54% failure rate and managing to sell as well as the Xbox does.

that's where my skepticism comes from.

Older gen probably, but like I said the poll is valid and Microsoft doesn't dispute it.

It's the largest electronic failure rate in history, much of the sales are inflated in fact because of it.

valid in a quantitative sense, but the newer gen Xbox is and has been out so this number is pretty inaccurate as of now.

That's speculation on your part though. Hypothetically if Microsoft had any brains they'd have fixed it but we don't know until another poll comes out.

And even if that were true it wouldn't make this number inaccurate because it's not recording how many 360's fail but rather how many people who have bought 360's have had them fail on them.

Technically speaking it wouldn't because, again, it's asking people who own 360's if they have ever had one fail on them. This would include people who owned the first generation.

The only way the percentage would go down is if new people who had never owned a 360 before bought the new 360 which didn't fail.

But yeah, I would imagine that Microsoft has fixed their problems. They certainly can't afford to keep fixing all these 360's.
