Here's where you fail epically: Microsoft never released actual NUMBERS about the RROD. They just said they thought it was below a certain percent. They have released(because they were forced to afaik) that they have received 55,000 complaints about Xbox 360's scratching discs. There are 25 million+ Xbox 360s worldwide.

You've managed to perfectly distill his entire being into a single sentence. Nice.

To actually file a complaint to microsoft you have to enter their disc replacement program where they compensate half the cost of only certain games. so a game their console scratched would end up costing you $90 with a 6 week turn around. That is what I was told from the customer service guy on the other end of 1-800-4-MYXBOX. I said fuck that got them shits buffed out so my complaint of 3 scratched games never made into their "numbers".It really is a big problem even if it hasn't happened to you.

A manufacturer of a product knew and had data to support the fact that their product had inherent defects based on engineering validations and failure analysis testing. They proceeded to release said product to ensure they had a head start on competitors. Then they withheld their failure rate from the general public.This is news? Really, is it?I know it sucks but I don't quite understand why people are surprised. Go to consumer reports or the FDA website and you will see thousands of cases of this same exact thing. Every day manufacturers of products ignore or misinterpret failure analysis data to get their product to market quicker.

Hey Nut Man, have you gotten your X360 back from repairs yet?Lord Moon;354788 wrote:

Comparing the prevalence of RROD and intentionally allowing your consumer to go through disc scratches and RROD to a PS3 firmware update that affected very few is not only immature, but a sign of argumentative desperation. If the disc scratches are so few, you wouldn't have Microsoft getting sued by the EU and in the US for it.55,000? More like 55,000 on NeoGAF alone who have been affected from the posts there.I can't believe people defend Microsoft in all this. It's very mentally backwards. I thank God I don't share your mentality.

No, you got it wrong. PS3's don't break, there are zero hardware flaws. If someone's PS3 breaks, it's because the user is ignorant and is too stupid to own a PS3.I thought womfalcs3 stayed out of the Microsoft forum?
