Does anyone remember how much the Ps360 sucked the first year?

It was bad. Real bad. The Xbox 360 had tons of problems with RROD, overheating, noise etc. You could not install discs to hard drive. And the noise from the thing was horrible.
The games where not that good either. And no where near the quality 2 years later.

Ps3 launch was no better. 12 games and only 9 where playable. And the price was pricey.
There was no rumble because Sony said I was not needed and a thing of the past.
You could not download software and do something else. You had to wait for it to finish. Etc.

The Wii U has some issues. But the only thing it really needs is some Nintendo games.
All the other things I can live with no problem. And that is pretty good considering it is less than 6 months old. PS: The freezing issue was solved for me by setting the Miiverse to "English Only". Now make some games Nintendo!

The PS3 and 360s first year didn't suck anywhere near as much as the wiiu's.

Pretty sure the PS3's first year was worse. Not sure about the 360.

My launch 360 is still working perfect, and I've never had a overheating console.
Sure, the disc spinning was loud, was still nothing compared to the jetengine when we played Dreamcast games, so I had no problems with it.
And it actually had some good launch games.
I enjoyed Kameo, Amped 3, Condemned and Project Gotham Racing 3, those games alone made it worth buying a launch unit for me.

In short, all console launches suck. It's part of the industry.

It only had a faulty rate of 54.2%, not 100%.

lol, only. My launch 360 broke down twice on me. Funny, when I got the RROD, I wasn't even angry, it was kind of exciting actually. It's so infamous, I had heard so much about it, so when it happened to my launch system it was like I was joining the club or something.

You know your a fanboy if you say 'only' to an over half failure rate.
