SNES, NES, N64 had a failure rate?


Those were built when Japan didn't accept failure rates.


The biggest reason for the low failure rates of those three systems was the lack of moving parts, cartridge based systems are far more reliable than disc based systems because they do not have an object rapidly spinning inside the machine at all times. On most disc based systems the disc drive is the biggest cause of system failure, the 360 had far bigger problems however.

One thing you can always say about Nintendo products is they are extremely durable. You could toss one off a 4 story building on to a sidewalk and it would more then likely still work. Did it with a N64 and it still worked after.

I'm sure Microsoft put a lot of thought on the Xbox One.
Considering how much success they've had so far, I'd say hardware failures are pretty much a given by now.

What If PS4 has a 45% fail rate.

See I can play dumb what if's as well.

As long as M$ honour their warranty and expedite the service and repair, all will be good.

Well at first I wanted to say that I honestly doubt this will happen as MS should have learned from their mistakes from the 360 (which at one point had a failure rate of 54%, more than half, that's just ridiculous). Then I did some digging...

Way to instill consumer confidence MS /sarcasm.

There's a reason for the phrase "they don't make 'em like they used to"



Or you know, the older consoles had no moving parts, simpler architecture, minimal heat output, and a slew of other simpler design choices from a less complicated age.


In other words...they don't make them like they used to.

I'm not an an expert in US law so I'm not sure, but if they felt the need to include it here then I think it will at least have some influence if people do decide to sue MS over the X1 for whatever reason.

I think it should be ok though, at least it shouldn't reach 360 level failure rates. Then again, you never know.

Regardless, this just shows you that not even MS is confident in their own product.

It would hurt their brand, just like a 30% PS4 failure rate would hurt Sony.
