Twice in 2 years. I'm about ready to throw this POS in the trash and go another route. I been thinking about getting a blu-ray player anyway. Maybe I'll just go ahead & get a PS3 and be done with this shit.

That does suck. I still wouldn't get a PS3 though. I just don't like 'em.

Rather be a part of the <3% failure rate than the 301% failure rate though.

My 360 must got some sort of protection spell cast on it because it is two years old and no RRoD.....

Keep going strong! My drive died after 3 months, but I have bad luck, so it's understandable...lol

Mine is still going strong after a year and several hours a day on it. With a few 24+ hour strait runs for gta4 cod4 and halo 3 release's.

People make such a big deal about the failure rate.

Like they cant handle not having their 360 for 2 weeks out of the chances of it RROD'ing.

I'd rather stick with the failure rate, take 2 weeks away from gaming, than buy a Ps3. The Failure isnt a big deal, its all about what games you would rather play7.

You're right, I can't handle paying 400 bucks to see it die in a few months when it should have been handled from the get-go.

You mean as opposed to paying $600 and having to wait 2 years for any decent game to come out for your system?

Yea, I hated playing Uncharted, Warhawk, and Resistance last year...and I'm definitely going to hate SOCOM, LittleBigPlanet, and Resistance 2 later this year.

Im just making a point - Dont decide NOT to buy a 360 b.c the failure rate.

Make your decisions based on the games. You want to play the Playstation style games - Go for the PS3, want to play 360 style games buy a 360. And There IS a difference in style of the game.

I can handle 2 weeks of wait time during 2 years in order to play my 360.

Resistance wasn't all that great, a solid meh at best. And those other two came out a year after the PS3 had been out, so you kinda proved my point.


I've never been fond of the SOCOM series for that matter either.

Unlike the 360, which had... er, no good games until Gears of War, a full year after launch, right?

At least the PS3 launched with a popular title (you may call Resistance meh, but it's still knocking on 3 million sales' door), and quickly followed up with a smash hit 5 months later (Motorstorm).
Link Posted: 7/31/2008 2:38:29 AM EDT
Only people that have had problems with the PS3 that I know of are people that play while it's on its side.

Haha, yeah. The 360's big launch title was what? Halo 2? Which was equally meh, I'll agree. Just to me, it seems like the 360 has had a lot more badass games, while my buddy with a PS3 only has a few we've really enjoyed. There are definitely a lot of sweet games coming out for the PS3 now, just saying it seems like it took a while for the PS3's game developers to get into full swing.

I'm on my 4th referbish and still loving it. Cant wait for the new version of live. Sounds cool.

neither of the PS3's in my house have konked out... btw, gundam dynasty warriors ftw.
Link Posted: 8/6/2008 10:07:32 AM EDT
Wow, sorry to hear that.
I've still got the first one I bought back from April of '06. No problems at all.
I keep it well ventilated, and got a small fan that I let blow into it to help circulate more air into it.

But I bought a PS3 to play as well any way just in case.
Link Posted: 8/6/2008 5:37:43 PM EDT
I am still on my original 360 and that is with a lot of hard hours on it. I will consider a ps3 when they get any exclusive titles i am interested in besides metal gear solid. Until then it is just a blue ray player with optional gaming feature.

My Wii works great.

Link Posted: 8/7/2008 7:49:43 PM EDT
your 360 needs room to vent...

i set mine up on my floor longways up with the hard drive pointing at the ceiling and give it room to breathe because the RRoD comes from when you over work it and it over heats
Link Posted: 8/8/2008 11:48:56 AM EDT
Actually they told me the rrod was a hardware failure. Two red lights on the left side of the box is overheating. Ask me how I know. They are shipping me a new box now. My console will not even make it through a game of NCAA '08. I will not even try GTA because I don't want to be in the middle of a mission and the console shut down.
