HA....it is not just windows.....Cue the blue screen of death.....only this time it is black...I like the quote " it has been avaliable for 15 mins and already we are getting reports of crashing"

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

A guy I work with stood outside Best Buy for 11 hours only to get it home and have it not work. A few hours on the phone with microsoft later and he had to reformat the hard drive. Apperently it works now.

As far as I'm concerned MS can keep their POS.

I will (me) however be in line to pay a deposit for the PS3 as soon as this can be done.

When the XBox first came out, it was described as "the only console to blue screen". I guess now its finally coming true. And to think people trust MS software to run their mission critical servers!

Penguin power ffs!

How many of these consoles have sold already, and how many have gone tech?

I'm with Ronciere on this one, PS3 will probably get my money for sure.

Wow - the XBOX 360 is the new iPod Nano... except it doesn't crack when you simply put it in your pocket.

-hot new product sells quickly
-unacceptable problems surface on Internet forums, evidenced by a statistically significant percentage of users
-manufacturer denies responsibility before fully investigating the issue

Sucks for those forking over 2 g's on ebay for one if they get a lemon...
