    Oh god it wasnt that bad, a lot of them are still out there running just fine.
    While I've seen evidence that hey had some issues, I've never seen anyhting on the level of "peice of shit" in terms of reliabilty.
    Thats reserved for the original 360 build.

    fooks sake.... why do people have to keep saying stuff like the above? my 60gb phat is doing fine.

    i'm beginning to think people are just jealous of their cheap looking slims when compared to the luxury item that is a phat PS3.

    lol... I had one, I looked after it perfectly well, it died. Its a matter of luck. Its also a matter of how often you play it, if you only ever play exclusives on it once or twice a month of course its not gonna die as soon as someone who plays everything on it.

    I've played my 60 GB non-stop since I bought it and it still runs like a charm(and that was more than 4 years ago)

    Thats not a launch phat.

    And again, its down to luck and how often you use it compared to your other consoles.

    If I played my 60GB one or two hours a week it'd still be alive.

    It totally does. My friends 60GB launch phat is still alive and he's played on his WAY more than I played mine. What else is it down to? The system not liking its owner?

    Batch numbers, maybe if your console was built on a Monday, particular plant issues etc.
    It is likely its luck that you got one that does or does not fault, but in all likley hood its not luck that it will fail.

    It wasnt luck that the 360's failed, it was a systemic fault.

    If I'm to pick one up from a specific batch it is luck, theres nothing I can do about it. I highly doubt its down to the batches when all regions have had ridiculous amounts of failings.

    What regions, it was only ever launched in America and Japan.
    EU got a different build again (one without half the PS2 chips).

    I'll say this...

    The 360 RROD was covered for 3 years under warranty. PS3 warranty only lasted a single year.

    So odds are more people paid to replace broken PS3s than broken 360s.





    Also Nintendo numbers are only year to date (Date being September 31). Christmas isn't a big holiday in Japan where the PS3 sells well, but it's a HUGE holiday in the US where the 360 sells well. Considering MS is likely to shift nearly 4 million consoles between October 1st and December in the US alone, I wouldn't go jumping for joy quite yet.

    Can anyone say they're shocked? We all knew the PS3 was the most popular console worldwide and worldwide is what matters most. It's nice to say that the 360 is dominating here in the states and while i'm proud to be American i know there are other places in the world that matter than just here. This is a true testament to the staying power of the PS brand.

    You guys have to remember that the vast majority of people kept their fats on all the time, seriously when they werent gaming many people were doing that number crunching for cancer or something like that. Seriously i know people who bragged about always leaving theres on.

    So yeah those phat ones did get used and abused like a motherfudgepacker.

    I sold my 60 GB launch to a friend, and it is still working according to him.

    I'd say the Launch PS3s were somewhere between the Original 360 and Wii build quality. I suppose when you do get a console at launch, the heat issues are not all sorted out. Unless you go Nintendo's route, where they slightly upgraded the Gamecube specs. I can see the Wii U having a few more issues. Of course that may be just mildly more powerful than the 360 and PS3.

    Basically I would've gone 360 if it weren't made by an American company. My biggest issue with the 360 is that you have to treat it like a high-maintenance bitch.

    Remember when people were saying how stupid it was for people to move their consoles while it was running and that it made sense why it would scratch the games...well, I fucking do that all the time on my PS3 and not once has it scratched the disc, in fact it's never done it.

    Not to mention, my cousin went through 4 controllers in a year back when he bought the original Xbox. I can't trust an American company...now if a Japanese company took over the design then I might consider it. They just need to make it quality and I might just consider them.

    I have a 1 year old and he throws my controller around so much that no other peripheral would be able to take it...I never get afraid of it breaking, we've stepped on it several times too...I still can't believe it works perfectly and has not given out yet.

    In fact, I have NEVER had a PS controller go out on me...I still have the original PS dual shock controller that I bought back in 1999.

    I know what you're saying but come on mynd, you know what I'm talking about.

    Not to mention, how do we know IBM and Apple doesn't employ a bunch of foreigners as engineers? I bet most of them are Asian (not necessarily Asian in the usual sense of things but like Indians and stuff as well).

    I'd rather own everything Japanese and/or Korean/Taiwanese than American or Mexican for that matter lol.

    Look at ford and chevy and then compare that to Hyundai and Toyota/Honda.

    Not to mention, most quality assurance concepts come from Japanese (which began with Ford but 'dem japs perfected it). We learn a lot of business concepts from Japanese. They know wtf they're doing.

    The Xbox 360 was made in China, as I am sure the Playstation was as well.
