Xbox One Suffers System Malfunction At Comic-Con Numerous Times

If you're dumb / fanboyish enough to rush out and buy an untested piece of hardware as soon as it hits the streets, in this day and age of failure-happy electronics, you deserve to endure the ensuing problems associated with non site tested devices.

Why anyone would grab a next gen console on day-1 (aside from the obvious lack of intelligence) when the games on offer are so, underwhelmingly meh and after history has taught us how unstable first release hardware is, is something only a feverish fanboy fervour could rationalise.

wat

I bought launch consoles most of the time, going back to about the 2600 or so. Never been burned.

Oh sure, there was the PS1 fiasco, where I had to flip it to play FMV but I took it back to Gamestop and they literally threw it onto a pile of returns, and the replacement was fine. Only time I was burned and had to pay to repair/replace a console was PS3, and that wasn't even a launch PS3.

This pretty much confirms rumors that came around shortly after E3.

However, in the interest of being fair, the failure rate can't be knocked until it is actually in the real world. Just my opinion...This however certainly does not bode well or inspire confidence.This also may be why at E3, they were running XB1 games on PC instead of the console itself. This however is a bit speculative.

Did you stand to close to the fire, like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone...

Well with that mind state how would anyone know that it's working properly or not
We learn from trial and error yes but can't come to a conclusion without going through them
With that said.

The fact remains fellas that the ps4 passed sales inspection a month ago but haven't released a launch date while thr xbox one is going through last minute tweaks facing issues after issues and is "ready" to launch in 4 months.
It's worrying to say the least.

If the Wii brand was a person, he'd a deadbeat uncle who embarrasses everyone involved while living off of his one single moment of glory he had back in 2006.

This is what happens when you make a console so bad it requires constant revisions just months before launch; you get errors, crashes, and bricks.

After how unstable the 360 was I can't believe MS is being so irresponsible yet again. Having a weaker clock speed than PS4 isn't as bad as yet another RROD massacre.

This is what happens when you believe every blog site you read without researching the original article that is linked in said blog. They have already mentioned they were wrong. Click the TCs link then click the link to the original source and see the update then move on with your life.

"Xbox One Has Brief Down Time at Comic Con 2013 Was Misinformation Plot to blame?"

Title and link to original article for the lazy and gullible who believes a journalist who uses a Sony rep as a credible source and then admits he is a moron.

Why are they messing with the tech specs? The hardware failure rate is gonna be even worse now.

It could very easily not be lying. "Tech issues" could mean a lot of very minor things, or something with the building itself(unstable power, for instance)

It's not unbelievable they went down for a little while, but believing it was because of some manufacturing error? That's just foolish, really. MS wouldn't be dumb enough to up clock speed(even a little bit) on a GPU if there were such issues.

Hell, it could have just been overheating from poor ventilation in their secure cases(The PS3 displays were extremely notorious for doing this)
