Ahh cmon you guys, its a new and very complex piece of machinery.. i'd be suprised it there were no flaws..
and sony made the ps2's shitty the whole time i love ps2 n all but cmon its a pile of shit lol
v7 NTSC PS2 Duo2 SE
complex yes and complexity is something microsoft doesnt do well.
its funny i havent been able to find any 360s .... maybe becuase they didnt make anymore.
I really don't see why they can't put some ventilation in there. An ultra quiet laptop size fan should do it. The Dreamcast has a cooling system and it never bothered me sound-wise (Of course, I hve a laptop and a big freaking PC running full time next to my bed so I'm used to noise)
The PS2 may be "shitty" when it comes to playing burned media but, as far as I know, Sony has never intentionally shipped units that they knew were DEFECTIVE and refused to issue a recall. I should also point out that this is a long-term problem with the 360 so, really, what we're seeing now is only the beginning. It may take a while for the defective units to start acting up.

Microsoft should have either not allowed these units to hit the shelves (they knew about it BEFORE the launch) or at least had the common decency to issue a recall.
It's typical MS bullshit, really.
yep, imagine the problems that will come after 1 month of hard use... even my DRE'd PS2 worked normally until the warranty expired, no questions asked (not like Im happy it started crapping out 3 days after the warranty ended, but... at least it worked out of the box, and when I got it there actually were units to exchange it for without waiting 3 months if it didnt)
The xbox360 P/S does have a fan, if you beleive the info that is out there. And the psu alone is supposed to be LOUDER than the fat/old PS2 :P (not like Im gonna find out first hand in any case, after seeing the XBox guts were basically a PC's, I doubt 360 will impress me much hardware wise - I have already seen alot of PC innards...)
All in all the best solution for the overheat/xbox360 problems can be found here:
I have a 25lb sledge that will guarantee you never have a problem with it again
they are doing the world wide launch so thats one reason and they just are not making them fast enough, i doubt that when the ps3 is released its not going to have flaws, nothing is perfect people

Differnce is at least microsoft admited there is a problem with certain consoles, maybe vague on the amount, however they are offering free repair/replacement's and are getting them back to ppl within a week, cant do much better than that, sony on the other hand lets see what i have here:
Broken v10 -> Laser Died (no free fix)
Broken v12 -> Coils Burnt (Got it as they first came out)
Getting v15 -> Problems playing some games (very small amount, as i read on their own website)
And thats just the consoles i own, i bet there is a lot of unhappy people with sony too, but they are both as bad as each other.
whahaha , I think all PS2 is unfinished crap ,
I sold some 1000+ PS2 , I Am shure more then half is dead for now ( Laser / LA / etc... )
and some 300+ XBOX, and have only 2 Demaged ! 1 Laser problem and 1 Power problem.
PS3 will have a BlueRay = Damn sux , need to buy BlueRay Burner ( 1500$ ) , and Blank disks for some 30$ per one !!!
XBOX360 just a 4.7GB DVD-R or DualLayer :P , hope modchip will out soon.
I hate when it comes down to fanboys. I like my ps2, and am a fan of it, but I'll admit they do have crappy lasers (at least certain versions, or certain units). My first ps2 was a v4 and did last me almost 2 years though of playing lots of cd-r backups even. Finally the laser went out. I have a v7 now (i'm thinking for about a year), and no problems yet. So, I haven't had much problems personally, but I've heard enough to conclude they have crappy lasers....
People should hear enough to conclude that Xbox is full of shit (even if your a fan). Admit what they did was stupid, and seriously...I don't see them reaching there goal anyways. They say there running out of units, but if what JamesHong said is true then everybody working for MS is to busy repairing units they sent out to be making more .
