A peak at console failure rates

GN 1.0 / 2.0

SquareTrade took a sampling of 1,000 claims to see what the failure rate of the three major consoles are. According to their data, the Wii and PS3 come in with 3%, and the Xbox 360 with 16%. Some are disputing that 16% for Microsoft, but it sounds about right to me. My PS3 and Wii work just fine…but I’m on my 6th 360. I am probably setting myself up for replacement #7 just by talking about it!
