I wonder how many of those are from the red ring of death forcing more people to buy consoles. Im on my 3rd xbox because of that....

It's good and bad really.  Good thing is that it is popular and M$ is not going to kill it (obviously) but bad thing is that they need to do a really good job of helping us Xbox gamer transit to the new platform.  Anything less than a butter smooth transition will attract tonnes of critics.  Let's hope M$ knows the size of the  task ahead of it.

I hear multiple stupid comments about red ring but everyone forgets this is sonys third gen system and they still cant get it right. This is only microsofts 2nd gen system. Hell sony should have a flawless system by now and on another note sick of every  sony fanboy saying how sony has so many  first party games well duhh they should considering this is there third console. Now if they can only make a great game besides uncharted and yes for the fuctard sony fanboys killzone and resistance sucks balls and twisted metal and gt5 should have been a hell of alot better.

The ps3 doesnt fall that far behind with failures i had 4 replaced but nobody seems to say anything bad about it. The hardware nowadays is crap it is designed to break sooner to make you go buy a new one and spend more cash

im currently on the 360, but for the next gen i am seriously considering going with a ps4, because all microsoft seems to care about anymore is kinect while sony is coming out with tons of new core games that look amazing, even with there pos controller.

 @deadmonkey76 I have never had problems with my ps1,ps2, or ps3. None of them have broke in the years I have had them. I have had 2 xbox 360s red ring on me and know many friends that are also on their 3rd xbox 360....

 @deadmonkey76 There's no such thing as "flawless" in technology. Every man-made machine will always have flaws not matter what.. Sounds like you're trying to make excuses for MS.

Sony released many different models for PS2 PS2 PS1.

PS1 PS2 PS3 all over-heated and have issues.

PSP Vita? You honestly think the PS4 what fall short like the PS3? 

Sony is all about Smoke and Mirrors.

 @ryogapower Yeah mate, this is stupid. Sales are only that high because of the enormous failure rate of the older Xbox 360 model. I've had 4 360s myself, and two of them red ringed.

 The PS2 is still the best selling gaming console in history (DS not with standing). It looks like that ain't gonna change, even with the (seemingly doomed) 8th gen right around the corner.

 @BAND1T18  @ryogapower actually sales are this low because most casual gaming people/parents were discouraged from getting the 360 because of RROD else the 360 would be 100mil plus by now :)

 @megakick nope because there is a tough compatetion between microsoft and sony (not to mention pc gaming)

 @nate1222 the ps2 sold like crack but it was such a piece of junk next to the ps1 in the form of games

 

beside battlefront 2 and budokai 3 the ps2 had shit games 

 

and my first ps2 lasted just 1 fucking year until i bought the slim version

 @supertrooper23  @jayjay444  @Zoza24 Actually, jayjay444, the consoles that were originally faulty for red ring of death were NOT covered under warranty so you had to pay out of pocket to buy a new console or a hefty repair fee. It was only years later that Microsoft admitted they were at fault for a crappy product. So indeed, many of those "sales" are from people forced to buy a second, third, fourth, and sadly FIFTH console because of them breaking so often

 @thequickshooter  @nate1222 You seem to be on crack yourself because the ps2 had some of the best games to come out of all the generations of consoles. It has superb and vast amounts of RPG's among other genres.
