This all goes back to the R&D phase of the console. I have never had a scratched disc and neither has anyone I know. Equally I have only experienced one RROD (lauch console) and of the two people I know with lauch consoles one of them had a RROD with his launch console and nothing since - the other has had no problems at all.

MikeB has a deep rooted hatred from MS and an overblown love of anything Sony - they can do no wrong for him. Its as simple as that really.

 

Though MikeB is playing this issue up and plays all 360 issues up and out of proportion, the disc scratching issue is a factual widespread problem and a quite prominent issue in the EU.  I'm glad the people you know havent had issues, but that is annecdotal information and does not prove the success/failure rate of anything.

I just repeated what was stated by Kassa in my latest comments regarding disc scratching. Just wait for the full translation.

Also, why is it that you only post news to attack MS, MikeB?

 

 Does it really matter? Other members only post anti-Sony articles all the time. Who gives a shit who posted it? It's informative.

Is Kassa a weekly program on national TV in Holland?

It's one of those programs that present different issues from a consumer protection point of view, rite? (all kinds of stuff that is for sale, goods, food, electronics, services, travels, insurances etc?)

Yes, it is a weekly consumer program and quite popular it seems. Last week (the one with the latest 360 item) got about 1.8 million viewers, which is quite a lot considering we only have 16 million people living here.

 



so Mikeb... what was your Live ID?

Why?

I think it was the same as my PSN account (also anonymous). This was my premium:

Once I stated in public I thought the 360 was a pretty good console overall, at least much better than the original XBox was. But after all the issues I revised my opinion. But nowadays at only 119 Euro including 19% taxes with some free games, such deals are IMO still good value though, despite all the issues (let's say worth the risk for some).

You should have read past comments from 360 fanboys from before Microsoft's announcement regarding RRoD issues to their shareholders. Very degrading, following exactly Microsoft PR, it pushed me to root for the PS3 even more. Mine and many other people's console died before Microsoft admitted any issues and hordes of 360 fanboys were defending M$ and attacking people blindly on this issue.

Microsoft at CES 2009 demos Halo Wars:

 

So, that picture is from CES 09, but the advert on the wall behind the console says now starting at $279.99?

I'm calling bullshit on that picture.

Not sure about that picture, but the end result remains the same:

"CES09: Halo Wars + Red Ring = Fail

Gamertag Radio reports "So were checking out the gameplay of Halo Wars. Now, I'm not a RTS fan but the chance to control all aspects of the field was pretty interesting.

Then, as the title of this article says, the inevitable happens. Yes, Microsoft's brand new addition to the Halo series suffers from another RROD error. From what I understand, since its only a 2 light error, it is most likely an overheating issue. Yes, its a Dev kit and the display was probably not allowing enough cool air to pass through to the console, but c'mon MS! This is the next step for your flagship title at CES???""

It's not even the same thing, you just posted the first picture of a demo 360 with a red ring you could find to cast the 360 in a negative light, and now you're backpedaling to make it look like you weren't trolling.  2 red lights =/= RRoD.

Grow up, it's not like I have taken that picture. It's from here:

@ MikeB

Did you fall out with Sony when they failed for a very long time to accept that the PS2 had issues... actually I'm not sure they ever did acknowledge it?

The disc read errors were widespread and the ridiculous 30 day (i believe) warranty was hardly sufficient was it.

At least Ms decided to bite the bullet, admit it and give a 3yr warranty.

@ Mikeb

If you can't handle getting called out for posting fictitious crap then post the source when you post the picture. That way you would be off the hook, and any negativity redirected toward them.



BTW, one of the guys interviewed bought his 360 last November and already 4 games were scratched.
