    Default New console question

    Did Microsoft ever address the 360's crazy high failure rate in anyways with concerns to the new console that's coming out?

    Yes, you can solve the issue by buying a Playstation

    I dont believe the latest version of the 360 (the black one with the built in wireless) has had the same red ring problems that the old one did. That said, if your looking at the next gen systems, i also would recommend Playstation over xbox at this point.

    Not to mention the cases where older XBox 360 consoles would suddenly get the 3 red lights after Microsoft sent out an update.

    If you design a system that has the possibility of bricking after receiving a software update, then it's a piece of crap.

    Although didn't the same thing happen not too long ago with PS3s?

    I got first gen ps3 and xbox360 and i got the RRD and got it replaced on the xbox 360. The ps3 is suffering from the heat sink issue (the blinking) red light. So I guess the both have had issues over the course, just the microsoft one was jsut when it was very new.


    Overall from past experience i would do ps4 hands down.
