Xbox One “Bricked On Day 1″

Xbox-One-bricked-after-update-with-E100-error-code

No sooner has Microsoft’s Xbox One been unleashed on the handful of territories worthy of its power than it has been subject to a variety of horrible technical issues, although whether they are any more widespread than those afflicting the PS4 is another matter.

Complaints about a “disc-read error” and a supposed system update failure capable of bricking the console have surfaced – though just how common these are in relation to the number of consoles shipped is completely unknown (and doubtless likely to remain so, given Microsoft’s PR lessons):

    U serious? Look at all the butthurt fanboys around the world, on both sides I might add... Now they're just finding solace in the fact that their "enemies" also suffer.

    Back in my day there were these people called "beta Testers" who actually tested the system so the companies don't sell you a pile of shit.

    Those were the days *sniff*

    and back in the days those people were paid for their testing.

    Only fools would line up to pay money to be a beta tester for a mass produced consumer electronics.

    Wait for manufacturing yields/quality improvement, bug fixes and GAMES made specifically for next gen before you buy one.

    They do have beta testers even today, Anonymous. The problem is that with high-tech items, there is ALWAYS the chance of a flaw that gets through the inspecting process or a chance of 'damage while shipping' due to harsh treatment of the boxes.

    Even PC's are not immune to this.

    No no, you're definitely right, PC definitely wins...what with all the times my PS3 has ever blue screened and how often the system updates for it completely disable the sound or internet connection until I find and rollback the drivers to before the update. No wait, that's NEVER HAPPENED on my PS3; I won't speak for this next generation, but if I have to pick either my PS3 or my PC for gaming, the PS3 is WAY more fucking reliable.

    Stupid argument, because unless your PC is super old or badly built you'll never experience a BSOD

    Mine is nearly 9 years old, the only thing upgraded was the PSU and GPU (old one broke) and I don't get BSOD's at all unless I'm pushing too far on this old and barely capable hardware.

    But yea, if you experience driver issues after installing system updates then maybe you should really stick to consoles, hun. PCs are too complicated for you.

    Before you insult someone else's arguments, make sure you aren't making an ass of yourself. BSoD can happen for many reasons, including broken drivers, faulty hardware, kernel bugs, power fluctuations, overheating components, malware infections, etc...
    All of these things are possible on brand new hardware.

    Ya I think PCs are too complicated for this guy...I've built many high end gaming PCs and I've never had BSOD issues...maybe I'll get them if i feel like overclocking like crazy but then its not hard to get it stable either...

    Drivers are a non issue too...

    @6:49 - You're telling me broken drivers, power fluctuations, overheating components and malware infections aren't the user's fault? Are you even aware that there are means of preventing ALL of the above?
    Noone ever said BSOD only happens on old HW, you retard. Your comment is entirely irrelevant, BSOD happens mostly due to user being incapable of using his PC properly. You pretty much never get a BSOD if you cared enough to PREVENT it from happening.

    The only times you can't prevent it is when your hardware starts acting up, like your HDD starting to fail and whatnot. Every other instance can be prevented and it doesn't even require a lot of effort.

    @6:54 - Thanks for your worthwhile contribution

    Actually, Anonymous 06:49, they are MORE likely on brand new hardware because the 'bugs' have not been ironed out with the drivers and other things.

    You know when the last time I had a BSOD was? Like fucking 2002. Shoot yourself in the face, you obviously haven't had a decent PC in the last decade.

    Um.... no. I have a 'decent PC' and I have had a blue screen. However, it has always been traced back to a problem with a program or driver and not a problem with the computer itself.

    Then you replace that part with a new one and, oh look! You upgraded your PC.

    Consoles have the same parts, idiot. The only difference is that they are mostly soldiered to the motherboard, and you generally can't get replacements other than salvaging another console. Good luck if your PS4 is out of it's 1 year warranty.

    here its 2year warranty, and 5 year of "complaint-right" so if it breaks down for no good reason after 4 years and it have no sign of misuse Sony would need to repair it, give a new replacement that is as good as the one you had (or better, PS3 Slim for an 60GB with PS2\PS1 support is an no-no unless customer accepts it), or give you back the money you paid for it at time you bought it

    Nokia and Sony are the 2 worst on complaining about this to the government and no shit have cared for em...
    maybe the reason why Sony treats us with 3-9 months repairtime on DOA systems while if you got a RROD on an X360 Microsoft sent a currier-car with an replacement with in a maximum 5days

    Which is fortunately, for most of us, we know which part that fails and just replace that certain part.

    Because replacing a single part is worse than replacing the whole thing amirite?

    Your console has the exact same "numerous" fucking parts as a PC, the difference is with a PC you actually can replace and/or upgrade. People's stupidity never ceases to amaze me.
