Just started my 360 to play BF1943, oh noooo the 360 logo startup has lots of distortion and flickering squares, started a game and my fears have been confirmed, graphical artifacts. Very strange since it occurs when the machine has only startup. So this is my 6th, luckily when I purchased my Junkbox 360 I took out an insurance policy at GAME, thinking of course I would need it. Here is history of my Xbox 360s :

Number 1 : Would load forever when trying to load a Revenge Track, but other games would load but, tried 3 different burnout disks from the shop and all had same problem. Xbox 360 exchanged by GAME after 2 days.

Number 2: Xbox 360 would lock up and freeze on a number of games, after 8 weeks I had enough. Xbox 360 exchanged by GAME.

Number 3 : All my games started to get disk read errors within 1 week. Had enough, sent to microsoft.

Number 4 : Received a refurb from microsoft, dated Dec 2005. Lasted for 22 months, then RROD, returned to microsoft.

Number 5: Received a unit back from microsoft with same serial number, lasted for 2 weeks before RROD.

Number 6 : Recieved back another 360, took straight to game for a new Arcade and part exchange. Lasted 17 months.

Number 7 .... ?????

Just so i'm clear, my PS3 and 360 set on a huge desk with a TV, not in some box. My Dreamcast sits underneath.

Really this is pathetic junk, my PS3 is still going strong. I wonder if Watchdog would want me on their pathetic show. I have over 45 xbox 360 games and 30 XBLA games. It is really hard now to want anything further to do with this junk or spend another penny.

Regards,

D.

Had my first one four years and sold it (still working now) and my Elite two years and no problems.


I think four years anyway, judging by the above posts! lol

Just stick with your PS3, there more reliable and id say they have the better games(obviously thats my opinion)
The Ps3 has so many decent exclusives that are not even capable on the 360 - Ive had 3 xbox's break on me - my current xbox only gets used to play FIFA because i prefer the controller for footie games, if this one dies then ill never buy a MS console ever again.

Whatever can be done on the PS3 can be done on the 360, and in a quicker time frame. The only thing (in the case of big games) would be that it could be spread over an extra disc or two.

On my 4th 360, my 3rd PS3 but still on the 1st Wii. lol

So the truth of the matter is that Sony and Microsoft built shoddy hardware and cut corners............but i still keep them so oh well. :-D

PS3 since November 2007, no problems.

2nd hand xbox360 that was manufactured in October 2006, no problems.

I'm on my 5th xbox, but still love it.
My sons is still going strong from last xmas.

I see it as a free upgrade service, my original one sounded like a Dyson, new one is much quieter and has HDMI.

on my 4th 360 and 1st ps3. Probably partly due to the fact that my PS3 only ever gets turned on for a drunken game of singstar or Buzz. One of the guys who writes for Gamecentral made an good comment the other day. He said that if this generation was won by relaibility then MS would be no where. What this gen of consoles provs is that all people are intersted in is the quality of the games. Which is obvious to most people anyway I guess.

Just remembered that I did have to return my Wii to Gamestation after about 10 months then sold the replacement. Will give Ann the Welsh Hater a call I think ;-)
