Really? nothing. Not trying to prove anything. Just would like to see how many units have failed. I know that the X360 has failed more, but, I have seen a few of Dead PS3 threads lately.

Got both, & luckily nothing bad has happened to either. I don't play them very often, might have something to do with it.

Hey the first times you sent it in did you have to have it registered? I bought the 360 brand new but from someone, hence I didn't have a receipt. It's the 360 that came with forza & marvel alliance pack that has hdmi hookup.

Standard 360 fixed 3 times for three red lights and now the video card has gone out. Its awaiting its fate on my computer desk at the moment. I will probably buy an elite and say screw this one.

I've had two PS3s fail on me. No way to prove it, but I think it might have been my fault due to where I was keeping it. I'm guessing it was overheating. I moved where I keep it, and haven't had a problem since.

I sold my old 360 to a friend of a friend and he called me and told me that he got the RRoD. Had to call MS because it was still registered in my name. It was from the second wave of 360's that came out after launch.

Have an 80GB PS3 and I love it.

i have had my ps3 for about 2 months now and so far so good **knocks on wood**

which is the better position for the ps3 when it comes to staying cool: up on it's side or just laying down flat?

and are those aftermarket coolers worth it?

Same here, in all versions of each model, including both launch versions and I've never had a problem with either. It's amazing to me how many others have had problems though.

Just so you know, you aren't supposed to play them while they're sitting in an oven.

Had my 360 over a year, and it has never failed

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

I've had two 360's and the first died 1 week after I bought it. The second (walmart trick) lasted about a year and died. Hopefully #3 lasts me awhile.

I lost my first one (60gig) due to the cabinet space I had it in under my 56" TV. I moved it next to the TV mounted sideways in the open and leave it on 24/7 with no issues.

Mark me down for one failure. It quit reading any disc I put in it.
