My third xbox broke today. I only have had it for 2 weeks. It was brand new. They shipped it to me because my old one broke. I read somewhere that 16% of xboxes break...anyone else have the same problem with this shitty system?

eh...that's what warranties are for.

for future reference: best-buy usually offers great extended warranties on systems/computers.

I'm on my 4th Xbox but I still love it. So much better than the PS3. I would recommend not putting it in the same place. I changed it's location and I've ad this one for almost a year. And to ik, they replace your Xbox for free so you don't need to be rich. (And WoW sucks)

Actually, extended warranties on electronics are usually a waste, especially on game systems/computers.

I agree XBOX is far and away the best system. Best graphics, best games, best controllers. However, it is so fragile and annoying how I keep having to send it back in. Also, it is free to repair an XBOX, and you get a month free of live.

I didn't even bother buying the XBOX 360, but I had an old XBOX. And they break very easily.
I have a PS3 and have played the XBOX 360 before and I say PS3 is better. Not to mention, saves a hell of a lot of money by having a blu ray player inside it.

Best graphics: LOLOL! Every game that is on both systems performs much better with much better graphics on the PS3. Quad-core vs. mono-core, its not tuff.

Best Games: Tell that to MGS4, Resistance 2, LBP, Valkyria Chronicles, and all the games that are shitty and skippy on the 360 but work fine on the PS3, such as Oblivion.

Best Controllers: Thats a laugh. The PS3 control is the greatest control that will ever be built. Every button is right at your fingertips, it really couldnt be any easier.

how does it save money when blu ray movies cost more? i know some ppl who have to repair it every 5 months or so and i know ppl who have had it since it came out and it never red ringed. i just got mine had it about 2 weeks. i think ps3 is probably better but the fact that almost every ps3 game comes out on 360 but some 360 games dont come out on ps3 made me get a 360. that and the 200$ difference. i keep my 360 in an open area so its easily ventilated but shit happens and it could red ring but thats a known issue. PS3 controller is only better for fighting games everything else its the exact same except i prefer 360 its easier to grip.

It saves money because a Blu Ray player costs more then the PS3. And if you have a HD TV, it's worth buying Blu Ray movies.

How about Gears of War 2 and Halo 3? Banjo Kazooie? Fable? Grand Theft Auto expansions? Also, every sports game runs better on 360, and yes, the controller has a much better feel and grip.
