First off….it's not 24%. Even if I decided to put the Sony goggles on and try to see it their way, at one time the failure rate was high (not 24% high, but higher then tolerated). But today, it's no where close at all!


So buying another 360 not only just for one game, but in case the one you have (that works perfectly) now breaks down….for that one game? If you were a buddy of mine I'd have to slap you upside the head and ask what you're thinking.


…that is unless, you're pockets are too stuffed with money to even fit your phone in. Then hell, by me a 3rd 360 while you're at it.

It was 24% at one point, there is no way around that fact (and this is based off of independent, non-biased results through warranty services; there were some that reported as high as 40%, some a few percentages lower than 24, but 24% would be about right). Is it a lot lower now? Yes. But back when this topic was posted, consoles were RROD'ing left and right

Not going to sit here and pull up numbers...I have none.


But you do understand that a 40% console failure would mean that out of the some 70+ friends on my XBL list, that at least 28 of them went AWOL due to a broken console.


Hell, a 24% failure rate would imply that my friends list shrunk by at least 18.


Fact is, neither of which happened.


I'll give you that the 360 had a higher then average failure rate. But an average failure rate is less the 5% (I think I heard 3% is  the number). As one who has owned a 360 since '06, I'll give you anything below 14%....and thats at the absolute worst.


....but again, this is all mute. Only reason I'm even entertaining this discussion is incredible boredom.
