Xbox 360 Failure Rate Details

Gamespot has an article that goes in depth on the specifics of the catastrophic failure rates of the Xbox 360. “Takahashi quotes a Microsoft engineer who raised the issue of hardware reliability in August of 2005, months before the system’s November launch. At the time, 68 of every 100 Xbox 360s made by Microsoft’s Chinese manufacturing partners were coming off the line nonfunctional. Worse still, when the first batch of the system’s three-core CPUs rolled off the line, only 16 percent worked.”
