Our commitment is that it will be the most reliable video game box out there. People really love the Xbox because of the content, but we've got to make sure that the hardware never stands in the way of that.
Calm down people. What he is saying is that they are committed to make it the most reliable console, not that he thinks that it is. He is just stating that reliability is now top on their list of improvements.Nothing to flame here.
It is the first console ever had so many problems........& most people it can't be most reliable either, because it is Microsoft. LOL
Wow ... are our memories so short that we have forgotten Sony's disk-read errors? Sony denied that for years ... and I know they did, because I had one repaired by them! My Xbox has crashed literally 2 to 3 times.
Repairs cost, and MS would rather pay for the technology to slow that from happening than keep paying for repairs and losing tons of credibility.
- few game disc read error VS Game Console completely DEAD
- a series of problems http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_technical_problems + Xbox live issues now
- highest failure rate 33% in the history
Few game disk read errors? The Sony PS2 had so many, I had to send it in - on my dime! When I got my RROD, it wasn't the hardware so much as my son running past some cables and yanking it. And MS shipped me a box to send it back in.
And based on your comments, do you have any hands-on time with a 360, or is all just something you read online? And truthfully, I admire the way you have gleaned one thought into 3 excuses for the 360 problems. Wow ... you should consider a career in Public Relations!
Face it. You still don't want to admit Xbox 360 has so many issues, most of them are too serious that Microsoft can't just avoid it like Sony's one and need billions to cover it, completely DEAD, you know, even the Public Media like reporter & editor had to face this issue. I have a Xbox 360 myself, it got disc read error either(maybe different from sony's one), and it crashed with white screen while playing. So how about the scratched discs & the RROD I had on my Xbox 360, maybe you are the luckiest one, do you know how hard and how long it takes for me to replace a new one? Everyone knows that it is just damn slow for microsoft for replacing/repairing for a new one. How about the Xbox Live error that everyone's having recently, don't tell me it was a prank news or jokes?
The most important stuff that you should know, repairing doesn't mean the issues never happened. The problems will stay in the history whatever Microsoft did.
Even after the repair, the problems never tend to stop. What is the point of repairing, maybe it is Microsoft's strategy for buying another console. RRoD once, twice, third, forth and even more than that. We still can heard the story everyday, 33% is just too high even for a failling rate, if you consider the multiple times repairing, it should be higher.
Wake up, you really sound like a Microsoft PR, maybe you are, aren't you?
Poor PS3 Sales Means Smaller Losses
"Actually, because the number of units sold was not as high as we hoped, the loss was better than our original expectation," Quotes from Sony’s CFO Nobuyuki Oneda.
