Report: 60% of Xbox 360 consoles in the UK have failed
A survey conducted by CNET UK has shown that 60 percent of Xbox 360 owners polled experienced hardware failure compared to 16 percent of PS3 user and 6 percent of Wii owners.
Of the 1,128 UK-based participants, 562 owned a Xbox 360s, 473 owned a PS3 and 591 had a Wii, some owning more than one.
The survey also indicated that Xbox 360 failures are more likely to occur within 12 months of purchase, and 47 percent reporting console failure inside a year with 72 percent of users taking advantage of the warranty and 15 percent trying to fix the problem themselves.
CNET says the survey does not “represent a random or necessarily representative sample”.
