I can't say that I had any knowledge of the failure rate of the PS2, though my friends and I all bought one at or near launch.

Also, we're talking about the XBOX360, not PS2 and it appears, by all the coverage and the fact that MS has taken steps to help those with faulty systems and lessen the system's failure rate, that this wasn't some minor thing.

First off go read about ps2 consoles that were originally released in the red box. Most of them had DVD drive failure by 1 year and would not play games with a certain colour bottom, and would eventually stop playing DVD's. Furthermore sony return policy was crap compared to that of Microsft, I specifically remember my friend having to get his dad on the phone to argue with the sony call centre because their console died after 8 months. After hours on the phone sony finally decided they would send him a new one, I am sure others were not so lucky.

As for you talking about the 360, well you said 30% fail rate is unacceptable well in my mind so is 15+%, and as i said sony sold close to 100 million consoles. Sony's problems were not minor either, yet with good games, and many exclusives they still managed to sell many consoles.
So whether you think its unacceptable or not, the public doesn't totally seem to agree with you.
