I'm still a little hesitant buying a new console because things always seem to go wrong. I'm just wondering if there are many defective Xbox Ones out there.

You know, I don't quite remember the 360's launch... but the first few years of it, man were those bad times for the 3 red lights. And once Microsoft finally fixed that problem... the new issue was E74. They never really caught a break until they released the Xbox 360 S.

Ironically, I never had the 3 red lights or E74, but I had an E73 and a few DVD drive failures.

It's too early to tell but I would definitely suggest you stay the hell away from the launch batch.

Right. It doesn't matter which system you get; they both have their fair share of problems.

Seems like the One is having more problems immediately at launch out of the box, most of the 360 problems were brought on by extended use.

RROD didn't manifest at launch if that's what you're getting at so the Xbone probably has a higher failure rate.

360:
-RROD
-E74

PS3:
-YLOD

XB1:
-Buzzsaw hard drive
-GSOD

PS4:
-BPOD
-Faulty HDMI port

Don't you miss the days when you bought a game console, and you didn't have to worry about it taking a dump from simply using it?

Yeah that might be a good idea. And the 500 GB HD seems a little small seeing as how all installs are mandatory, I may wait for at least 1 TB.

Game consoles used to be MUCH simpler devices.

For PS4 it was actually the cheap ass hdmi cable, not the port itself.
