Xbox 360's massive failure rate: one in three consoles fails

Posted on Tuesday, June 26 2007 @ 01:00:06 CEST by

Australian retailers are complaining about massive failure rates of over 30% with Microsoft's Xbox 360 console. Smarthouse reports:
Retailers are claiming that Microsoft has had to handle a failure rate of over 30% with their Xbox 360 console. More than 100 consumers have written to SmartHouse complaining of either poor service from Microsoft or total failure of their gaming console. One consumer was even given back a refurbished unit in exchange for their original Xbox console.

Several months ago SmartHouse raised the issue of potential problems with the Xbox 360 after several readers wrote to us complaining of persistent failures. Even one of our testing Xbox 360 systems that we use to review software failed and had to be returned to Microsoft for repair. Other consumers have complained of sending off their Xbox for repair only to get a different re furbished unit back.
