The 360 bites the dust, and the PS3 rises above all!

You're so full of sh*t, and really annoying aswell, no-one will take you serious with your biased views, so keep them to yourself.

in the article..they mention the 'loan system'...My 1st thought was:

whats the point of giving someone a new 360 on the spot...if its just gonna happen again?

I've send seven Xbox consoles back to MS with three red lights in the past two years, I still play the thing. Why? Cause I don't give a damn wether it works or not. If I can play games on it that I like, I can live with it.

If it dies, two weeks later I'm back in business.

I'm sure most of you have read the articles coming from Chris Stead on Gameplayer about how "Rockstar screws Microsoft" and 'Microsoft in GTA Panic"...

Well here is another article, which apart from a delay, must be every Microsoft GTA fan's worst (game related) night mare.

Enjoy!

Ok.. microsoft is leading in sales right now, exclusive content for the 360=win. Microsoft is pushing gta iv so hard, all the people I know are getting gta IV for the xbox 360. Microsoft will not have a disaster..

What are you talking about? The article is on the RROD. It's not about the sales. sheesh dozingoff.gif

ANYWAY, this article seems to be pure speculation. We just have to wait and see.

Im actually glad my xbox got the E74 error earlier this week. It gave me time to take apart the xbox and clean it and apply the x clamp fix so no RROD for me (Crosses Fingers)!

Its kinda easy to see PS3 fan-boyish stuff here, since GTA started for most people on the PS1-2, and thats just the way it is i guess.

very good point.
nice cash thing, btw.

This is bad news for my xbox. Hopefully if I just take care, and keep it well ventilated, nothing will happen.

My friend down the hall from me was doing that exact same thing with an Elite and one day... it randomly got RROD. Luckily the got it from Best Buy so he was able to just give it to them and they gave him a new one.

It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Ok.

I have a first gen 360 (I got it the day it came out) and I have never had one problem.

Four of my friends have the same, and only one has had RROD, years ago. This was sorted quickly, and he got loads of free stuff as composation.

My 360 is a live and well, and will continue to be that way...

Jesus, you people... sigh.gif

I know this article copped a lot of abuse, so I feel compelled to link to this article posted today.

The gameplayer article asked whether MS would have a plan to deal with GTA IV releated RRoDs... looks like the company took note. Well... I doubt it was this article but you know what I'm sayin'

Yep, the last few months the PS3 has been selling more than the 360 has.

This guy needs to read before he posts and do his homework.

To be fair, guys, the 360 STILL carries a larger base of consumers, but if we are indeed being fair, then it would be fair to say that that is the reason the 360 even got IV in the first place. But that's not a free ticket to start hating, be glad everyone gets to play, and happy you're not me, playing everyone else's ps3 wink.gif

It probably is true though. From my understanding, the ps3 is more durable. When I heard that the ps3's that are folding@home 24/7 and don't break I was sold.

Utter bllsh*t article,but we know this already.

I've had my 360 since launch date, sometimes its been used 14-15hrs per day, never no problems.

I'm lucky?no, if %30 of consoles have been returned,this means %70 are still being used, and wheres the facts to sugest all %30 are returned because of malfunction?

Get a life!

PS3 is a sh*thot console no doubt, as is the 360...deal with it
