My original NES died eventually. I wanted get the redesigned top loading model because the front loading design was the source of the NES's reliability issues. My PS2 died in under a year and half, but everyone one I knew had issues with their PS2 failing. It was sort of like the next console I had issues with minus the free replacement. The 360. I had two 360s red ring on me. If MS didn't replace them for free, I would abandoned the platform like I did the PS2.

I wish MS had replaced my 360's but I was unlucky and they broke very early during the denial stage.  



That's what happened to me with my PS2. It broke before Sony settled the class action lawsuit for DRE. I was pissed. I didn't buy a Sony console until I bought my PS3 in 2009. Ironically I bought it to swap consoles with my brother who had a launch PS3 (Full BC). Of course I didn't know ridiculous the save file data was on PS3. He had multiple locked saved files that didn't move over. So I had to keep the non-BC PS3. I was trying to get some of the PS2 games I missed. Ah well, my bro's launch PS3 ended up with YLOD. If the swap had happened, I may not have bought a PS4 at launch.



5 different XB360's
3 repairs for my BC PS3
1 bad Gamecube lense
1 crushed Wii

Nope, still have them all working normally.
The only one that broke was because of my bother, he dropped grape juice all over our Master System and it broke, but not the system fault.

Ouch.. sorry to hear that. I actually had a friend have that happen to his Vita, and had to be repaired. : X It was lame for him indeed...

Yeah, it was really sad, we loved that thing.
Got a PS1 not much after that, so it wasn't that much time of sadness, though xP

Yeah, I imagine for real great times started there on the PS1 : D

PS1 - one broke
PS2 - three broke (I know people who had their 7th)
PS3 fat - one broke (well was more like dead/faulty on arrival lol)


rest so far so good.

Please show me Hard evidence of 7 new ps2 broken because I have serious doubts of the kind of abuse someone would have to put to destroy this many console in a gen.

Even more when failure rate of ps2 is nowhere close to rrod on first version of X360.

 

Sure thing, pull out your time machine we go visit my mates house just before his 7th failed.



 

 

a few, 2 Atari 2600's. 1 NES, 2 PS2's, 2 PS3's, 1 Xbox 360. everything else lasted until I stopped using it.

- Wii disc drive need to be cleaned (Smash Bros issue). Nintendo did this for free...
- Wii U fan failed. Luckily was within its warranties time...

But - I'm a heavy smoker and I've seen small computers fans failing here after some days...

Bad luck, usually Nintendo consoles are pretty resilient... I'm impressed by the quantity of Wii failures I saw in this thread, wouldn't expect it.

Yep, pretty classy. claim you had 3 failures and some others were so high as 7 and you have 0 evidence but preffer to give a smartass answer?? Do you have any reason to put the claim when the thread is only about your failed consoles? And have you had only sony consoles or only the sony consoles you had failed?
