XBox 360 Failure Rate May Be As High As 33%

leave a comment »

DailyTech, citing retailer reports, says that the rate of failure for the XBox 360 may approach 33%.  From the article:

Microsoft has said before that its Xbox 360 failure rate falls within three to five percent, what it believes to be well within industry standards. Internet reports from Xbox 360 owners, however, suggest that the failure rate is much higher than that.

EB Games held conference calls for its Canadian stores informing them of the new policy changes and revealing alarming failure rates of the Xbox 360. “The real numbers were between 30 to 33 percent,” said former EB Games employee Matthieu G., adding that failure rate was even greater for launch consoles. “We had 35 Xbox 360s at launch I know more than half of them broke within the first six months (red lights or making circles under the game discs). Two of them were dead on arrival.”

Between this and they way the PS3 is limping along, no wonder the Wii was the huge breakout.
