Xbox 360 disk tray broke twice. Returned to Microsoft for repair and two months of gold membership. Few days later, I get the RROD. Sent it back to MIcrosoft and they returned it but it still didnt work. Sent it back again with a note telling them that the issue wasnt solved and they still sent it back with the RROD.

After only have my 360 for a couple of months, I decided to sell it for a PS3 which hasnt nhad any problems for 2 years.

Sh-yeah. I remember when Devil May Cry 4 came out I was gaming on my Xbox 360. Then guess what? Red Ring of Death decided to come and visit.

Only my PSP. First, I dropped it and the UMD drive died (wasn't that big a deal, all I played on a UMD anyways was Crisis Core). Then a few years later, I had it in my pocket while I was shooting pool with some friends...I bent over too far once and the inner screen shattered, probably because it was bent or twisted. So now, it's only good for playing digital games when it's connected to a big TV.

RRoD on my 360 a few times. Had the warranty though so it was all good to fix. My friends PS3 broke the other day when he put in The Last of Us for the first time lol.

My Wii makes a chainsaw-like noise and doesn't read discs every once in a while. I have to put in Wii Sports because it'll read that disc, then swap it out with the disc it won't read, and it'll read it. ;A;

The reader on my PS1 is almost dead. I put it on its right side, then when that failed, I put it on its left. Finally, I put it upside-down... and the PS2 came out some time after.

So, it's not technically dead, but it was almost there before I retired it.

My ps3 the 60GB (when it first to come out) stopped working and I hate that because it had four usb ports and card readers. I hate the new ps3's but had to get one so I could watch crunchyroll and neon ally.

My Nintendo products have been pretty reliable. I don't think my GameCube works anymore though.

Had to have the old NES repaired a few times around the late 80s or early 90s, but it's been doing fine since.
The Super NES, Gameboy, Master System*, Dreamcast*, Playstation 1** and Xbox 1 have never needed repairs.

I was young so it was frustrating not being able to play games, but I also had tons of other stuff to keep me distracted. It didn't take long to be fixed, really.

* Why did I always end up with the Sega systems that had no games? And funny enough, the first and last of them.
** Though I had memory card corruption issues twice when playing Final Fantasy 8 on the Playstation, which caused me to give up trying to complete it. That was more frustrating than waiting for the NES to be repaired; such a waste of time.

My Wii broke, twice. The first time it was having a disc read error, so I sent it in to Nintendo to get it repaired. When I got it back, less than two weeks later it had the same disc read error again. I tried some fixes I saw online to see if I could get it working, but it was a no-go. It's been a paperweight ever since.

My Sega Genesis also died, though I think it may have been because someone forced in a cartridge really hard, and it somehow bent the pin connectors. :X

Nope! I did have my Pokemon Sapphire constantly being deleted for who knows what years before. I friggin' hate that "The save file has been corrupted. The game can be played" message. Yet, for some odd reason, I kept restarting the game whenever it did that. Ahh, childhood.

My Gamecube stopped working one day after I bought a couple of games I was really excited for (I remember Sonic Heroes & One Piece something something among those games). What's worse is when I finally managed to fix it, the Wii came out 1 or 2 months later.

My second PS3 also bit the dust. It wouldn't turn on anymore. I'm still on my 3rd one right now

I also had several of my Pokemon save files erased. I feel this should count for some reason...

I agree with that sentiment...
I had a Super Metroid save erased that I put a lot of work into, completing the game with as few supposedly essential items as possible - for instance, I didn't get the Varia suit. Unfortunately, by the time the save was lost, I had forgotten what items I'd managed to do without. Then again, that may have been fortunate, because I probably would have done it all over again if I had. We have too much free time and energy when we're young.

... and ironically, I somehow managed to accidentally click on the privacy policy link instead of moving away from it, thus erasing this post and having to retype it. Another point in favor of mouse devices over touchpads.
