    Cnet UK commisioned a self selecting random survey last month to see how many Xbox 360's, PS3's, and Wii's have failed

    the survery shows that 60% had failed in this survey, vs 16% of the PS3's and 6% of Wii's.
    I tried to find more info on the PS3's and wii's in this survey but it seems the info is still not out completely

    also this is only a survey, and a small one at that, but it was random.

    I think that the 360 rate is a bit high but I expect it to be about 40% personally, not 60% the PS3's seems about right, but I have never ever seen a wii fail personally yet.

    I have no reason to dispute these findings. The Xbox360 has serious hardware flaws which lead to constant infant mortality failures. The PS3 most likely has about double the failures compared to the Wii because it is a more complex machine.

    You missed the last poll done, was a different company, but I think the 360 in that one had almost 75% failure rate, the PS3 I think was at 15% and the Wii around what it's at now. So seeing this one doesnt really surprise me.

    yep, add another 1 million xbox360 "failed"/banned last week, the 60% seems to be incredibly lower than average ;)
