A recent report from SquareTrade has produced some statistics of the percentage of Xbox 360 consoles to “Red Ring’ in their first year.
Included are the times which the ‘Falcon’ and ‘Jasper’ models were released, as well as comparisons to other consoles.
SquareTrade are one of the worlds largest independent warranty providers.
“The Wii emerged as the reliability champion, exhibiting only a 2.7% failure rate over the course of the first 2 years of ownership. The PS3 had a 10% reported failure rate, nearly 4 times the Wii’s, and the Xbox 360 saw a 23.7% failure rate, nearly 9 times the Wii’s“
It probably doesn’t help me feel any better that my own 360 red ringed just 24 hours ago, but it’s nice to see that I’m in the minority for this one.
