Yeah, it's a problem.

I didn't even play mine that much, and one day, it froze, and that was it. Had to send it in. It's been fine since, so cross your fingers.

When it works, it's good times, and there's a slew of games coming out that look like winners.

A lot of people been quoting around 30% of all units being defective and Microsoft never gave an actual number saying itís irrelevant as long as their willing to fix those units for free. The PS3 on the other hand doesnít have any problems at all. The PS2 is a different story because a lot of the first batch units were defective although it was only for a short period of time and the 360 been out for around a year and a half and people are still reporting that their units needs to be fixed. I wish I had the actual number for defective PS2s.
