Xbox 360 – 61 per cent failure rate

There has been a lot of talk recently about the true failure rate of the Xbox 360. A popular website ran a poll on it’s site asking the visitors if they had had problems with their Xbox 360’s…

So far 2315 people had responded that they had gone through at least one console which was 61% of the survey…

That is a shockingly high number and obviously not accurate as there is no way that 61% of all Xbox’s are faulty. It is an indicator though that the failure rate is higher than what Microsoft would have us believe (4-5%)..

I don’t think we will ever be told exactly what the failure rate is but at least Xbox gamers can get their broken Xbox’s replaced very easily… Now if Microsoft would just put as much effort into the manufacturing quality as they do into the replacement procedure things should start getting better.
