Console Failure Rates: Sony And Nintendo For The Win

Based on the word of some folks at EB Games and Best Buy, about one out of every three Xbox 360’s is returned due to hardware failure or about 33%. Whereas the Wii and PS3 have had little to no problems with an impressive 1% of systems messing up. The results are obviously a little sketchy since the market penetration and availability of both systems is low, but the numbers are going to give fanboys something to brag about.

The Xbox 360 has been acknowledged as the most reliable console, so everyone in Sony and Nintendo camp should take this news with a grain of salt.
