Article: 30% Of Xboxes Fail


Posted June 22, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

According to an article by Smart House.com, nearly a third of 360s are sent back to Microsoft for repairs. The article states: "Retailers are claiming that Microsoft has had to handle a failure rate of over 30% with their Xbox 360 console," and goes on to publish several of the "over 100" emails the company has received complaining about bricked 360s.

Yeah, it's hardly a scientific survey, and, if we judge by internet website reports, it's an improvement: This site proclaims at 61% failure rate for 360s! There is really no way of verifying these reports, as no one is releasing the numbers. We know one thing, though, 100% of our 360s went belly-up the other night in the middle of a rousing game of Uno.

Microsoft denies there is a systemic problem with Xbox 360s.

Had any similar problems, 360 owners? Or are these internet reports a bunch of nonsense?
