Over half of Xbox 360 consoles failing?

A survey by Game Informer found the failure rate of the Xbox 360 console is a staggering 54.2 percent, compared to 10.6 percent for the PS3 and the Wii's 6.8 percent. These figures come from a survey that gathered data from nearly 5,000 readers.
The magazine surveyed nearly 5,000 readers to get the data. And while the 360's rate is alarmingly higher than the others, it's still bafflingly low because it blows the mind to imagine that 45.8 percent of the consoles have not broken. Also, Microsoft's numbers are inflated because 360s are used the most of the three consoles. Results said 40.3 percent of 360 owners use the console three to five hours a day, compared to 37 percent of PS3 owners. Meanwhile, the plurality of Wii owners (41.4 percent) play their consoles less than an hour a day.
