Its been on my 360 for well over a year, and my power supply is still fine. The main causes of death on 360's is poor ventilation, improper care, and way too much time on peoples hands. (hours and hours of play time, isn't good for any game system.) If the Niko intercoolers were proven to cause any problems, then why are they still on the market? Most of the time it could just be a coincidence that they have an intercooler on a failed system. After all Microsoft does have a really good return policy right now for a reason.

cause its cheaper then a computer, i can play with 7 friends, and use it as a media extender. You run full 1900*1080 or whatever it is?

I never have to upgrade it and its guaranteed to work wit all its games. For $500 i can play games, surf the internet, and watch BluRay movies.

Does your computer do that?

I'm not poopoo'ing your post because I have one too, but just because something was known to **** **** up doesn't mean it will get pulled. Why do you think drugs and food products that cause nosebleeds, ulcers, diarrhea, ---- leakage, etc.,etc. are still in circulation? It's buyer beware on everything and all they have to do is issue a piece of paper in the product that printed in .010 font that warns the user that use of this product may **** your **** up. Just one GLARING example that I've had experience with, the Anthrax Vaccine that the military used and probably still does use states clearly that it has not been tested for carcinogenic qualities or mutagenic qualities to reproductive systems. Pretty cool, huh?

Hey bro, it appears that this game has been causing some crashes, its a known problem. Maybe you can contact them and get a new ps3 or drive out of it? Bah, either way goodluck thats harsh.

It's interesting because the system was problem free until I started playing AC. I won't play it again until the patch comes out, I have some other good games.

I took the PS3 into Best Buy and they had me play it to show them the problem. It froze as usual and they replaced it with a new one, so I'm happy. The first guy I dealt with was a ******* idiot, I told him play it until a load screen so it will freeze. He would play for about a minute and said he saw nothing wrong.

As of yet consoles aren't targeted by viruses, and my last comp was destroyed by one. That and I just don't get along with computers. All games made for PS3 will work on it for years to come. My comp will need major upgrades monthly to keep up.

Yeah im on number 4, hopefully this is the one.

1) distorted lines through image (probably first gen/launch issues)
2) I think i destroyed it moving - freezing constantly loud fan noise
3) Power Supply Failure
4) Breaking it as we speak

Ouch. Best Buy said I was the 2nd person to bring it back. Not sure how much I can trust them, but I don't know why they would lie.

I'm just happy it's under warranty.

Nyko Addresses Xbox 360 Intercooler Problems
>> From gamepro.com:
[QUOTE]
Because the fan peripheral saps its power directly from the Xbox 360, there have been concerns that the Intercooler 360 could cause damage to the console. Recent posts on some gadget blogs have shown Intercoolers discoloring and, in some cases, breaking Xbox 360s. Outside of images and testimonials, however, it's not known how many units could be affected.

Nyko notes that "a small percentage of all products suffer from defects," and that the Intercooler 360 is "less than half the average for consumer electronics products." Nyko is also pledging to replace damaged Intercooler 360s, as well as Xbox 360 consoles, "upon first-hand verification that the Intercooler 360 caused the system to fail."

note to self be glad you resold any ps3's you bought to buyers in Germany and didn't waste money on something as finicky as all that. I mean WTF where would we be if NES or super NES had problems like this hell even the grafix, atari consoles had better reliability from what i have seen. And don't tell me it is cause of the performance cause you are paying 500 or so $ for a system it should ******* work without the hassle of getting a new one replaced every month.

In a perfect world. In the real world everything has problems. You pay tens of thousands of dollars for cars, but they have warranty issues. You can't build a perfect product every time.

I have a Wii, and have not had a single problem with it. I purchased that one because it is the most innovative console yet i believe. As for the pc's, i'd rather spend a hundred dollars or two and keep upgrading video cards and keep getting better graphics and what not then wait 5-7 years for sony and microsoft to get off their asses and do something, that and i feel that by using the controller you greatly restrict gameplay vs using a keyboard and mouse

I think your allowed to use keyboard and mouse with PS3.

And the Wii isnt problem free. My brother is hanving problems with it, an because of that we got him his gift early (60 gig ps3, he cant wait to buy all the ps2 games he can get his hands on)
