My PS2 died from disc read errors, my Dreamcast died because my brother dropped it.

 You know that you can use a Genesis controller in place of an Atari 2600 joystick right?



Keep this in mind when reading what I type...

I've been gaming longer than many of you have been alive.

one NES - after the raise lower thing broke, it eventualy just stoped powering on
one snes- video out put died probably a bad solder

two ps2s- both disk drive failures


xbox one failed- my brother knocked a large candle onto it, the wax seeped into it.

no other failures on current consoles

Around the Network

NES- stopped reading games altogether
PS1- little brother broke it



PSN ID: Darkkilaz

NES - faulty connector
Dreamcast - dead power supply
PSP- worn out analog nub

Never had any problems with my others systems (2600, SNES, N64, GC, GB, GBA, PS2, PS3, Genesis, Saturn or my replacement Dreamcast and PSP) *knocks on wood*



Mehh, i have yet to see a console break lol.

OFF TOPIC:
The title of your thread rembered me of this Reggie's sentence:
"The graveyard of any industry is filled with the headstones of companies who decided to keep doing things the same old way. Playing only on the margin, making things just a little bit better. That strategy works....for a while, but ultimately it's fatal. Over the years our industry has come to accept progress simply by what’s on the screen."

None. Heck, even my near 10 year old PS1 still works (though it's kinda crappy now...it is dying ).
