I was kind of deprived of video games...

I had an N64... That I had to keep at my grandma's house... Then I got a fat PS2. It died. And since then, I've had like 4 slim PS2s... And that's it >.<

Well, I have a GBA too...

I've been through 3 Xbox 360's but can never give up on it, it's a SICK console + they say they've finally fixed the RROD now with the new slim console

I had a few consoles, I remember when I got my PS1 for my birthday years ago, it was exactly like the Nintendo 64 christmas video;

Pas vrai. The failure rate in the new consoles is still higher than that of the PS3 and Wii. If you were being really clever with your words though, you're spot on; RROD doesn't occur in the newer consoles because they've removed the Red-Ring light mechanism. Instead you get an ominous 'red-eye', where the little power sign glows red. Probably a clever marketing trick on MS's part, they can claim 'RROD' has been stopped...when in fact they're still using the same shit solder, albeit on a *slightly* better chip. The GPU is the newer 65nm 'un but it makes no odds, the bracket on the board is still a massive x-shaped one and when that badboy heats up (it's still under the disktray so that's almost inevitable...trust me, these things MUST be built by monkeys. Then again, I'm sure most American products are built by monkeys bar Apple's Razz) it causes it to kink, and all hell breaks loose. The solder comes loose and bam, your hardware is useless once more.

I'm not one for conspiracies, but I'm pretty sure MS make these consoles duff on purpose. It's been 5 years now and they still haven't eradicated the problem entirely. If kids on a forum can point out the problems I'm sure MS has known how to solve them for donkeys years. When your console finally shafts it and you can no longer rely on them for a shitty refurbished replacement, you'll need another one or your entire library of games is worthless. Ker'ching for MS.

I've had 3 Xboxes break on me and I treat my hardware very well. Windows is a buggy, horrible mess and it looks like someone smeared their fat smelly bum down my screen whenever I use it. MS can suck my hairy ballbag, I don't trust any of their handicapped products.

Btw I don't like Microsoft very much (however I have the utmost respect for Bill Gates and XP was a solid OS. Old paint was fun too)
