Or the moist Q-tip trick. Isn't it amazing, back in the day we were able to fix our consoles with our own breath and some cotton, no we have to send it back to the manufacturers to get it fixed.

Dear TS,

This just in...

Xbox 360 Failure Rate is 54.2 Percent, Game Informer Finds

The Xbox 360 breaks five times as often as its closest failure-prone competitor, the PlayStation 3, a print edition-only Game Informer survey found.

The poorly manufactured, red ring of death-prone console has a 54.2 percent failure rate, compared to 10.6 percent for the PS3 and the Wii's 6.8 percent.

The magazine surveyed nearly 5,000 readers to get the data. And while the 360's rate is alarmingly higher than the others, it's still bafflingly low because it blows the mind to imagine that 45.8 percent of the consoles have not broken. Also, Microsoft's numbers are inflated because 360s are used the most of the three consoles. Results said 40.3 percent of 360 owners use the console three to five hours a day, compared to 37 percent of PS3 owners. Meanwhile, the plurality of Wii owners (41.4 percent) play their consoles less than an hour a day.

Microsoft also seized the gold medal for unhelpful customer service, taking nearly a month to repair or replace a console, while Nintendo and Sony stuck closer to a week. Only 37.7 percent of Microsoft customers found the company's customer service was "very helpful," compared to 51.1 percent fo Sony and 56.1 percent for Nintendo.

The most shocking number from the survey and frightening from a consumer perspective is only 3.8 percent of Xbox 360 owners said they'd never buy another Xbox because of hardware failure.

Okay, I'm not going to sit here like a ****kinng nerd and argue over what system is better. Plain in simple, IN MY OPINION, the Xbox 360 is a better system. And in my point of view people on live are better than people on PSN, just for the simple fact that I've heard so many little *****es complaining about how they suck on live EVEN when the own BOTH systems.

If I were you, I'D get a 360.

Sony is junk anyway, everything Sony I've bought, broke. Including numerous MP3 players and a Laptop.

Thank you so far. I am still in doubt which to buy. What I can read in thread this is how it is:

PS3 got better graphic - especially if you got HDTV
Xbox 360 is cheaper
PS3 is more reliable and does not break easy
Xbox got better games and more games

Is this correct?

Thanks.

I think we could agree on all points but the graphics point. The 360 supports hdmi output as well. And as far as the quality of the actual graphics, games that are on both ps3 and 360 tend to look slightly better on the 360, but the ps3 exclusives(Game that were developped specifically for the ps3) are usually a step ahead of 360 games in terms of graphics.

Look at footage from killzone 2 and metal gear solid 4, it looks insanely good.

I will insist that if you buy a 360 you buy a newer model with the jasper chip which is supposed to be more reliable. I bought one 2 weeks ago, and they tried to sell me the older model, i *****ed until they brought me a system that was manifactured in 2009 and i bought it. If i couldn't have gotten a new 360 model, i was buying a ps3.

It's all preference, some games people will love,other games people will hate. I for one loved Halo 3 (although a bit disappointed), some people hated it. It's all about what you like.
