Why the hell are companies being fucktards this generation? I don't recall this many problems back when Nintendo and Sony were fighting it out with the PS1 and N64!

Ooof, That's quite a bold statment to put out there, Wonder how they're going to recooperate, Maybe they'll prey the 3 year guarantee will help keep owners onboard.
I don't think it would have been as bad if they would have handled the returns correctly either.

At least they admitted this to the public and I'm sure are planning on fixing this problem soon.

If the 360 price cut is a fact, then this combined with the extended warranty a proper way to say "we fucked up"

The reason they're defective is becuase Microsoft wanted their next gen console out before Sony. They rushed the release before giving it lenghty tests. The PS2 came about before the XBOX and slaughted it so this time they wanted to turn the tables and they did, 360 is doing better that PS3 but the question is with all these faults was it worth it?

I fixed the links and made them go directly to the article and made the hyperlinks pretty (like me). Now we need them to do a recall, then they should do something about damaged game discs and they will earn my trust and money.

I'm sure they'll have this fixed, you won't have to worry about future ones.

You don't need to buy a PS3 if you don't want too

Just don't buy a 360 right now, Microsoft made a official statement. They have to fix it
