XBOX 360 and the RROD

Wow, the XBOX 360 has a 34% failure rate. 34% of them break down!

Thats jsut stupid! They have so many crashes, they even have n acronym for the most common one, Red Ring Of Death - RROD.

Nintendo for life.

I heard they used the wrong sort of solder, and it just cracks when it overheats.

That really sucks, I kinda feel sorry for the people who buy them.

At least Microsoft fixed it for free.

i have on and there grate
Blurring the lines between computing and console gaming more than ever, the Xbox 360 is far more than a games machine. Some may cynically observe that it's a device that's allowed Microsoft to bring all manner of non-gaming, Microsoft-branded services and media functions into the living room (replete with tie-ins to Windows Media Center Edition and XP, naturally), but there's still no denying it's a capable beast.
Initial observations are that it's slightly smaller than the original Xbox, and heavier. The huge power pack takes us back to the days of the Spectrum +3 - and then some! - and the controller is far better than it looked on paper.
We should point out that it's the Full edition we're looking at here, replete with in-built 20GB hard drive and wireless controller. A 'Core' edition is available without these and a couple of other items for £70 less. There doesn't seem much point in opting for that, though, as a hard drive is pretty much a necessity here. That said, you can add a drive later, and with the various USB ports there's significant upgrade potential.

Awww, was it the uncut version? If it wasn't, now you have a reason to buy it

Or in America do you always get the uncut verison?

Here in NZ they released it 'censored' and about 3 months later they released the 'Uncut uncensored' version..

From what I read, not many failure rates on the Nintendo Consoles.
