Finally

Microsoft have come clean and admitted they have reliability issues with the Xbox 360. They are setting aside over $1 billion to extend warranties to three years (flashing red lights) for 360 owners and also compensate those that have had their consoles repaired since launch. This is good news and well overdue. With failure rates of only 1% rumoured on the PS3 and more and more bad press surrounding 360 reliability there wasn’t really any other course of action.

Shame it wasn’t done sooner though.

  1. Some of us take care of our toys…

  2. But you having more toys means your time is evenly split amongst them 🙂

  3. The Times (as in London not Glasgow Evening) has this interesting article saying some UK repairers are refusing to accept any more 360 returns and that failure may be as high as 30%.

    It’s incredible they’ve got away with such a poor quality product for as long as they have.
