Since it's launch the systems are very "rare" and stores ran out within minutes if not seconds but the main point is - a far 45% have already complained about it having crashes during games or booting up or on live,

I myself know a few people and one big game that have problems is PG3 - a lot of games are going around saying that their copy crashes near the end of stage 2..

And then theres PDZ which has been reported to crash on live after 3 - 4 minutes in a game.

Some more important issues are systems getting VERY hot and crashed and the DDR and Graphics causing crashes - the images are on the internet and it shows big what squares like you have overclocked a GFX card too much on screen and says system error:-



After all this Microsoft said:

"The vast majority of Xbox 360 owners are having an outstanding experience with their new systems," a spokesperson tells Next Generation. "We’ve received a few isolated reports of consoles not working as expected. The call rate is well below what you’d expect for a consumer electronics product of this complexity. As a percentage of the total number of Xbox 360 systems already in the field, these calls represent a very small fraction. That being said, there is no systemic issue with Xbox 360. Each incident is unique and these customer inquires are being handled on a case-by-case basis. Ultimately, customer satisfaction is our highest priority. Anybody having an issue with their Xbox 360 console should call 1-800-4 MY XBOX immediately so that we can help, or visit www.xbox.com/support."

THATS SO MICROSOFT - BLAME THE DAM USERS AGAIN!

I did want one of these but with this horror and Microsofts crap support and the fact they are using "yesterdays" technology just for a dam Xmas worldwide launch makes me say NO

And NO im not a Sony Fanboy I like Xbox more than PS2 but with PS3s Specs and Nintendo Revolution's rumored free 365/24/7 free online service bundled with the console the 360 LOSES!

Don't have a go at me like people on my msn list are saying "theirs is fine" they havent been on it for more then 5 minutes - and it seems consoles from the Zero Hour are all OK but most issues are with the free ones from the 10 minute giveaway from Pepsi Corp.

Another issue been pointed out is that theres 2 types of power block going around and that most of them have problems (REMEMBER THE CALL BACK ON XBOX POWER CORDS? LOL!) The one part I think Microsoft rushed on.

Sorry, Microsoft what LOOKED a great console is only a Door Stop or dam Heater!

I got a premium one..and it works fine
