Here's an interesting article:
But surveys are now showing just how extensive the problems are. Microsoft’s consoles breaks down about 23.7 percent of the time in its first two years of use, according to warranty firm Square Trade’s analysis of 16,000 failed consoles. By comparison, the Sony PlayStation 3 has a failure rate of 10 percent after two years and the Nintendo Wii fails 2.7 percent during the same period. In other words, the Wii is nine times more reliable than the Xbox 360.
I've said it before, but I've had the RROD 2 times already and am on my thrid console
was on my 4th before making my ps3 my primary gaming system
I dunno if the quizzed the righ people
I went through 4 in the first 2 years, and ihear others saying the same.
I don't want to call bias on that article, is the source trustworthy?
square trade handles the warranties that go through them, so they'd know how many systems had to come in based off of certain errors (and, not surprisingly, the RROD is the most overwhelming of hardware failures of any console). Not sure what other companies handle warranties, but they would more than likely come up with the same conclusions, give or take maybe 5%.
heres the PDF pertaining to the whole study:
