Locked: xbox 360 failure rate - 36% buy a new console

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - xbox 360 failure rate - 36% buy a new console

This would mean that out of the 35 million sold, app 12 million have re-purchased due to console failure. This shows the ps3 as having overtaken the xbox in legitimate sales. Considering that the xbox was released a year earlier, it has been beaten in sales by the ps3 by a very big margin.

I sense a flame war and sum banning soon...



Really though, it is surprising that people would re-buy after a failure. Though I guess that the investment in games and hardware makes it hard to move on to a competitor.



 

How can this be a flame war. I have just stated facts as published in the article on Gamespot.



@demon

Chances are you will get flamed and this will start a flame war trust me.

To the mod that is going to ban demon123:

Can you write " You had a 100% failure rate" as the reason why demon was banned.......for the lol's



N64 is the ONLY console of the fifth generation!!!

Why can't we have a civil discussion instead of preempting banning?



Give it up and go and buy yourself both consoles as I have done, you will then see things in a whole new light and not belive evertything you read over the internet..



Yeah...but how would you explain the attach rate of software on the 360 as compared to the PS3?

@Fufinu

If, he is banned, it's going to be for dredging up an old article, and trying to start a flame war with inflammatory comments...
