Very true! But the thing with the Wii is that instead of the console breaking you get like a 30% of TV's getting smashed

The thing is, I have never actually seen a PS3 yet... I mean, non of my friends have one. So it isn't a shocker that you don't see them broken! MS outsells then like 10:1...

Lol they are probably sending him the same console after putting some "duct tape" in it to patch it up.

Even so there are enough PS3'S out there for a report on how well built they are. I have never seen anyone screwing about there PS3. Now I could get flamed for this...however technically hasnt the PS3 got more to go wrong with it.

It might have! If I had a PS3 and paid so much for it, I would handle it like it was made of gold! I think people who own a PS3 tend to care more for it then their 360 because of the availability and price tag

It's like having a AMD 3600 x2 and a FX62...No way in this lifetime will I ever attempt to do the same with a FX62 then what I've done with my 3600

I have to admit when moving my PS3 im really careful lol. Considering the PS3 has more inside it technically including the Blu-ray drive you would perhaps think that the rate of breakdowns would be greater..Has sony learnt its lesson from PS2. I hope so lol.

well i'm not surprised really.
When you think of the technology in the next gen consoles and the prices your paying, they have to cheap out on the parts. I know some of you will say they are taking a hit...maybe so, but obvisouly not enough of a hit, b/c 90% of the 360 failures come from heat and component deformation.

of course the wii will not have the same issues the 360/ps3 will have, it's 1/4 of the power and technology, so chanes of hardware failure due to excessive heat is minimal. I read somewhere the original xbox had more 'processing' power then the Wii (not to take anything away from the wii at all).

I'm on my second x360, and as someone mentioned it depends how you treat it. Maybe this guy in the article has it embedded in a closed wall unit with other recievers/dvd player/ ect and is covered in dust...we don't really know. But 12 consoles is a bit unrealistic, or someone has it out for him

Microbloat may get sick of him and send him dodgy consoles for the sake of it lol.

theres an easy fix for the main problem the 360 has and thats to get the x clamp upgrade. u can either do it your self or have somone do it for u. i got my 360 and it came with it b/c thats how the guy sells every 360 i guess. its a good fix and prolongs the life of the console, but good cooling is always a must for this thing
