I'm sure you will, please provide a link for this 30%

and not something some dude pulled out of his ass, Microsoft says 3%-5%

You know more than Microsoft?


''many articles have appeared in the media portraying the Xbox 360's failure rates,[2][3][4] with the latest estimate by warranty provider SquareTrade to be 23.7% nearly three years ago,[5] and currently the highest estimate being 54.2% by a Game Informer survey''

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_technical_problems

Lie moar!


Damn, you got it. A Game Informer survey

and, keep reading

On February 8, 2008, during the Game Developers Conference 2008, Microsoft announced that the "Failure rate has officially dropped", but without mentioning any specifics.[28] The same month, electronics warranty provider SquareTrade published an examination of 1040 Xbox 360's and said that they suffered from a failure rate of 16.4% (one in six). Of the 171 failures, 60% were due to a general hardware failure (and thus fell under the 3 year extended warranty). And of the remaining 40% which were not covered by the extended warranty, 18% were disc read errors, 13% were video card failures, 13% were hard drive freezes, 10% were power issues and 7% were disc tray malfunctions.[29][30] SquareTrade also stated that its estimates are likely significantly lower than reality due to the time span of the sample (six to ten months), the eventual failure of many consoles that did not occur within this time span and the fact that most owners did not deal with SquareTrade and had their consoles repaired directly through Microsoft via the much publicized extended RROD warranty.

and here is the kicker, the article contradicts itself

On August 28, 2009, SquareTrade published a report saying that "early indications point to the RROD problem abating in 2009", projecting that 1-year failure rates with the release of the Jasper chipsets might be below 4%, with actual fail rates for RROD problems at slightly above 1% in Q109, and total failure rates for all hardware problems at about 12%

3 years ago would be 2009. In 2009 they are saying 12%

So obviously information is scorned, so try again

Read the Wiki next time, you keep embarrassing yourself

Not to mention this lawsuit will hurt sales,people will be like.. faulty controllers? Pass


Like 30%+ chance of console failure hurt 360 sales? lol


Microsoft stated that the Xbox 360's failure rate was within the consumer electronics industry's typical 3% to 5%

Lie moar!


Maybe you should read more than 2 lines because that was a statement from Microsoft at launch.

"On February 8, 2008, during the Game Developers Conference 2008, Microsoft announced that the "Failure rate has officially dropped", but without mentioning any specifics.[28] The same month, electronics warranty provider SquareTrade published an examination of 1040 Xbox 360's and said that they suffered from a failure rate of 16.4% (one in six)."

I guess the "Failure rate" somehow "dropped" from 3% all the way up to 16.4% right?


That's not Microsoft saying that, that's an estimate.

Maybe you should comprehend.

Estimate=/=Fact

So Microsoft extended the warranty on the Xbox 360s, so will Nintendo give people new controllers?
