I'm still on my first 360 5 years later.

#2 Edited by SolidTy (41512 posts) -

I went through 5.

I didn't vote, your limit was up to four for some reason.

I had 4 RRODs and 1 E74 (Jasper did NOT save it). I was also the person that broke the E74 news in SW and that was before it was covered by the extended RROD warranty. At the time, users were saying they never heard of it, so there's that.

I currently am using 360 slims as I always had more than one 360 in my home at all times. I would link my original SW E74 groundbreaking news thread, but it appears it was purged due to age, but there's this.

I sold my first 360 (which was a premium) to buy an elite. The elite got an e74 and then red ringed 2 years later, but the it fixed itself the next day when it red ringed for some reason.

I went through 4 of them. But only 2 of them had RROD. 1 Had PSU failure, and the other had DiskDrive failure.

#6 Posted by freedomfreak (38225 posts) -

Only one. Didn't take long for me to get it back. It still works fine, but I don't use it anymore.

It scratched my GTA4 disc.

#7 Edited by wolverine4262 (18798 posts) -

I had 1 rrod and two that had DREs.

#8 Posted by lundy86_4 (42658 posts) -

2 or 3, I forget. I had an Elite forever (still works), and i've had a slim for around 3 years.

Have: 1 (purchased July 2008)

Broke: 0

#10 Posted by bobbetybob (19086 posts) -

Got one in 2008 and it never broke on me. Sold it recently so maybe it'll instantly break for whoever buys it.

#11 Posted by magicalclick (22235 posts) -

I have 3 Xbox 360. First Gen in my room, and the Jasper in living room, then I got the slim for free by buying a laptop in MS Store, so, I give away the first Gen away. All works, don't know about the the I give away as I don't have it anymore.

#12 Posted by DJ-Lafleur (34082 posts) -

My 360 never broke. Still have the one I got over 5-6 years ago.

#13 Edited by The_Last_Ride (69017 posts) -

2 of them broke, the latest one is still kicking and running though

#14 Posted by Gaming-Planet (13707 posts) -

1 and zero broken.

#15 Posted by k2theswiss (16598 posts) -

my first 360 i got in 07 died on me twice. after that none

#16 Edited by Riverwolf007 (23397 posts) -

my launch 360 burned out after 3 years and the second one is still going.

2 systems over the course of 9 years is pretty good.

i play a lot of games.

i went through 2 ps1's and 3 ps2's over 5 year periods so the 360 was way more reliable for me than any sony system other than the ps3.

#17 Edited by jake44 (1908 posts) -

Buy a warranty. Also, did we really need this thread?

#18 Edited by Bishop1310 (890 posts) -

my 360's never broke. I upgraded to a slim but I sold a perfectly working fat one. had a ps3 ylod on me and one of them had the disc drive fail while call of duty 3 was in it.

#19 Posted by Jynxzor (9280 posts) -

Still on my first one, but then again it marginally collects dust so it hasn't had much of a chance to fail.

#20 Posted by silversix_ (13627 posts) -

Broke two, am on my 3rd which i got back in 08 and its still working fine

#21 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (12809 posts) -

5, they were all given to me.

#22 Edited by leandrro (751 posts) -

i got one and it melt after 1,5 year

what is that thing about PC being more expensive people say?

#23 Posted by El_Zo1212o (6001 posts) -

Traded in my original 360 for a slim after a couple of years, my brother gave me his elite when he upgraded and it worked just fine until it was stolen. Got a new matte slim a few weeks ago. So that's 4 360s and not one failure.

#24 Posted by getyeryayasout (6892 posts) -

I'm a 5 time winner of the coveted RRoD award. Hip-hip Hooray!

#25 Posted by TrappedInABox91 (461 posts) -

Three.

Never going to buy another MS console in my life.

Pieces of shit I swear. I'm glad a friend gave me the third one for $20, because I wouldn't have gotten another one otherwise.

#26 Posted by Stevo_the_gamer (42530 posts) -

One broke on me.

First one was a launch Xbox 360 that failed in 2010 to the RROD. The refurbished unit they gave me was traded in when the Xbox 360 S released in 2011. Still have the S unit and it works perfectly.

#27 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (28310 posts) -

Launch 20 gig still runs to this day, Elite *first unit with hdmi* E74'd was fixed within a week and a half and the charge for repair was refunded, halo reach slim still running.

Launch 60 gig ps3 hdmi port died purchased new hdmi port and used launch system and worked with friend to replace hdmi port of mine and I kept the used unit and sold him the original launch unit, that used unit died last year paid 130 to have it repaired.

#28 Posted by paraskhos_basic (1241 posts) -

#29 Posted by Infinite_Access (2477 posts) -

#31 Posted by berzerk0912 (782 posts) -

2 died. Original Slim is still going strong after a thermal paste change.

#32 Edited by finalstar2007 (24875 posts) -

I dont even play my 360 for it to break :P

#33 Edited by 04dcarraher (18973 posts) -

My brother has went through 6 of them , 2006(RROD), 2007(RROD),2008(RROD),2010 (E79 error) ,2012(slim)disc drive, 2013(slim)disc drive.

All of his friends have been through at least three.

#34 Edited by PyratRum (547 posts) -

Still on my first which is used unit I bought in 2010.

Had one PS3 die on me due to the Bluray disc drive dying. Couldn't get it fixed easily because it had some super rare drive that was no longer in production. Got really unlucky with that one...

#35 Posted by El_Garbanzo (273 posts) -

On third. First rrod, second E74. Gotta wonder how much all 360 failures inflated the sales, peeps rebuying, getting a new from warranty...

#36 Posted by kitty (114314 posts) -

only one, never had a RROD, gpu died




Considering the age, well it was expected.
As for the ps3, I'm on number 6. I gotta say the fat model is the worst one.
Here's three of them in a picture http://i44.tinypic.com/2l8itxw.jpg

After dealing with so many I learned how to fix them myself. The slim one I have http://i44.tinypic.com/16i8gn6.jpg
seems to have smaller chips which is good. Because it helps with the heat issue that the fat one had.

lol spreading bullshit I see.

I specially like the getting new from warranty as though Microsoft counted those units. *rolls*

One system since Christmas 2012. Hasn't been broken yet.

#39 Edited by Floppy_Jim (25422 posts) -

4 breakages, all on the 20GB model. Then bought an Elite which has been fine. I'm sure the install base was inflated by a decent amount; although I did buy a 2nd PS3 after going through 2 60GBs.

Good Lord, early 7th gen consoles were fucking atrocious -_-

#40 Posted by Snugenz (11450 posts) -

2, Had a launch Premium that i traded (still working) towards an Elite when they released, that Elite is still working, though very very dusty.

#41 Edited by gameofthering (9966 posts) -

I had 4 X360 consoles. 3 of them got the RROD and my last, the 4th I traded in towards a 3DS.

My first two were repaired by Microsoft and my third was bought from a shop (Microsoft ignored me)

#42 Edited by killerfist (19805 posts) -

I went through 2 core models, both broke down with RROD.

I managed to sell my third core, after the second repair (or rather swap since since they returned one with a different serial number), and bought an Elite which now has DRE's all the time. Of course this one is out of warranty for a while now.

#43 Posted by Salt_The_Fries (8155 posts) -

I've had my first one - 20gb premium one - working flawlessly from June 2008 to November 2011 until it RROD'd FUBAR. Then I bought a 250gb slim model the month after and works perfectly fine.

#44 Posted by hoyalawya (330 posts) -

Only one. Still works great after 5+ years.

#45 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16085 posts) -

Most people I know that purchased a 360 around launch had RROD. So did I.

#46 Posted by PAL360 (26572 posts) -

My launch 360 broke in 2008. Then i got another and still works.

You have 2 xbox 360.? NO wonder your 20GB model still works.

#48 Posted by quakeknight1991 (1113 posts) -

My answer is 4. Three of them had RROD and the other scratched my discs to the point of making them unplayable (it completely broke my ME1 disc)

#49 Edited by ProjectPat187 (1967 posts) -

My launch Xbox 360 is still working just fine.

#50 Edited by LustForSoul (5787 posts) -

I've got two xbox360's and they still work. One is over 5 years old and the other is about 3 years old. They're both old non-slim versions as well.
