I bought my 360 from Best Buy in the beginning of '07. I have since went through 3 different systems. The first system had major disk read errors. When I would put a disk in, the system wouldn't recognize it. I took it back, got another one. The next system got the RRoD (if you don't know what this is, I suggest you do some research because this is a MAJOR problem with 360's). Took it back, got another one. The next system would make really load noises, scratch disks, and cut off by itself sometimes. I thought it was possessed. Needless to say these issues annoyed me. Granted, I bought it with a store warranty so I didn't have to pay anything extra, but who wants to go through this type of ordeal over and over?!?! I am not the only one thats have several 360's go out on them either. A quick Google search will show the 1000's if not millions of people that have had these issues. Some retailers even report that the 360 failure rate could be as high as 30%, which is why MS extended the warranty to three years. But don't be fooled. The three year warranty is ONLY if your system gets the RRoD. It doesn't cover the disk scratch problems and it doesn't cover general over-heating issues. This was my first time buying a MS console and sadly it has been a bad decision. The games look really good, but if you plan on playing for more than an hour, you're a true gambler. As my friends and I found out, its not a matter of if but when will it die out. Between four of us, ten 360s have died (I count for three by myself). I also have a PS3 since it launched and I haven't had any problems at all with it. I leave it on without worries and you can barely hear it during gameplay or movie playback. If you have a HDTV and want the total package, PS3 is the way to go. It has way more features (built-in Blu-ray, WiFi, memory card slots, swappable HDD, Bluetooth connectivity, web browser, rechargable controllers, largest amount of game studios, free online play) then the 360. That's right, if you want to play online with your friends you have to pay MS in addition to whatever you already pay for your internet access. I thought I would add that because I was shocked when I talked to people and they had no idea they had to play just to play online with others with a 360. Get a 360 if your feeling lucky, but don't say you haven't been warned. I took mine back and exchanged it for store credit. I'll be gaming on a PS3 for the rest of the generation and so will the rest of my buddies.

Great Next Gen console - the only thing that hurts it is the high failure rate, I am on my 3rd unit. I am glad MS updated the warranty to 3 years.

Thank you so much! My boyfriend loves his birthday present and I'm guessing it's working great. It was worth the $350 with the 20 GB harddrive. You were a better price than best buy. Thanks again! Read More
