what problems did the Xbox 360 have at launch apart from RROD?

did it crash and freeze a lot? If it did, was this fixed with a patch? Hope the X1 has no problems ...

crashing and freezing is usually a software problem, but back in 2006 it was sometimes a sign of rrod incoming. some people had trouble with scratched discs. but out of my 4 rrod's/6 xboxes, i never saw that happen.

I must have been the luckiest 360 owner ever. My launch 360 lasted me for 5 years before I sold it. I've owned 5 360s and the only issue I had was a disc read error on my second to last.

COD 2 froze at a certain point. When you popped smoke in the tutorial it would freeze if you had a "bad" 360. Froze there every time for me. Had to take it back.
Also scratched the disc on Tiger Woods golf. I didn't get it at launch though. I got the second batch that released.

My friend still has his launch 360 but hasn't played it in three years or so.

Scratching discs, overheating, disc drives that wouldn't eject, fans that wouldn't spin, the usual stuff.

I believe the launch 360's scratched game discs as known problem, this happened to my cousin's launch 360. The RRoD problem started to occur later.

The PS3 had a known issue with their 2nd Model, the 80gb version. It had a faulty fan where the console sounded like a jet engine almost all the time. This happened to me.

As you can see the same family got hit with issues for both consoles.

Still have my launch Core model. One thing I do remember was the WiFi adapter was very poorly made and could only cope with b+g signals which for the price was an absolute joke compared to the 3rd party dongles of the time. We did not have the 3rd party support update back then either.
