according to this, they didn't. 

Besides its a different situation. Sony doesn't need to rush anything, but they could very well just be lying about the release date too. 

So you are saying the RROD isn't fruit of rushing, but pure incompetence?

It took nearly a year before these reports started actually becoming a real thing, and even then it was unclear how widespread the problem actually was. MS didn't know what the problem was for a good few months.

Hindsight is 50/50 but they would have required a whole year of extra testing to test for something they would not have even been anticipating in the first place.

They thought they had a readily functioning console from the tests they had done and thought it was ok to launch. Its not about rushing, or incompetence, just bad luck.
