Let me first start by saying that I love Microsoft and the Xbox Brand. This rant is in NO way to defend or promote rival Brands or Products. Now, why is it that I have an original Sony PlayStation that works perfectly fine after all these years, yet, I have gone through three (3) Xbox 360 consoles in the last 5 years. Admittedly, MAYBE I did not store my first console in a well vented area or cleaned it from time to time. However, after it died and i was forced to purchase another console, I always kept it cleaned, cool, and well maintained yet it died anyways after 10 months. Of course i could have had it "repaired" and saved myself money but i just bought a brand new one with a larger hard drive and figured this would be the last of my issues. Unfortunately, it was not. My current console is now not reading BRAND NEW GAMES with no damage on them. I know I can get it fixed of course but what i really would like to know is what is Microsoft doing to GREATLY extend the longevity of its consoles. I know for a fact that im not the only person that has gone through multiple consoles, repaired or not. I would love to by the Xbox ONE but im a bit apprehensive due to the issues I've been having. Again, I love Xbox but for me this is quite frustrating!
