An awakening storm? X-box failures exceed MS claims!

“We had 35 Xbox 360s at launch I know more than half of them broke within the first six months (red lights or making circles under the game discs). Two of them were dead on arrival.”

Retailers Estimate Xbox 360 Failure Rate High as 33 Percent

Nearly one in every three Xbox 360 consoles fail, according to retailer reports....
