So I just got a post on facebook about this re-ocurring Xbox One problem Labeled "Xbox One Disc Drive of Death". Got a review about it here.

http://kotaku.com/reports-of-xbox-one-disc-drive-issues-increase-1470495704

For those who don't want to read it It basically says that a number of Xbox One's Disc Drives are making what I call "Farting" noises . The game doesn't load either. This seems to be worse then the Blue line of Death that the PS4 is getting because the Blue Line of Death is somewhat able to be fixed. As for this problem, I do not actually own a Xbox One and my PS4 is fine at the moment. Just wanted to throw this word of caution to anyone who has or is going to get an Xbox one. I feel sorry for those who have had this happen to them. I can just say LOL.

I have a photo That I found that I could not help but post


Also wanted to see if anyone on crunchy roll has had this happen to them. and what they think.

I don't feel bad for them, only a fool would buy the Xbox one Or PS4. They fall right under the category of "unnecessary purchases".

So if you want to play Killzone: Shadow Fall, or Titan fall (on release) then that "unnecessary purchase" becomes quite necessary. As you need that hardware to play it. If you enjoy playing games, and even though I have a beast computer and part of the PC master race. I own a PS3, and PS4. I have been playing the hell out of Killzone, BF4, and Knack. 2 of those 3 games are PS4 only.

I'll just provide a short answer, if you feel you HAVE to play anything on release, you don't have the right to whine whenever you hit a bug or glitch with that product. It's a risk every customer has to accept taking.

I'm a early PS4 adopter and I got lucky with one of the many consoles that didn't get bricked. I'm hoping anyone else who got the Xbox One didn't have to open up their shiny new console to a bricked one. Gaming for everyone!

I quote "The Xbox be like "Blu Ray! What is this foreign object you are trying to insert into me! I must destroy! ~Grinding noise~"

Seriously though, it seems a lot of people are blaming the courier services for people who ordered them online.

But this hardly, if rarely, ever happens at all with Nintendo's hardware. I like how Nintendo always gets crap from the so-called Internet Videogame Community, yet they have THE least problems with hardware.

And before anyone go into that predictable knee jerk fanboy response, do note that I've got nothing but praise for PlayStation 4 and do plan on picking one up very soon.

Not a fanboy

But, you have to realize how more powerful the other two are. Packing that much hardware and power into one console, your bound to have a few hick-ups, (unlike Xbox supposedly). Like really, the Wii U never malfunctions because theirs barely anything for the console to malfunction with. No blue-ray, hardly any TV, internet (if you call that a browser) it's basically like a ungraded Wii. I will give you that I own one and I play Monster Hunter ultimate...............a lot.

no need to feel sorry for them. They will get replacement. All those hardwares should have warranty.
Also, all hardware(not just console) expect a atleast 0.01 to 0.05 defect rate.

Iphone has a much higher defect rate than PS4 and XBox one.

This is why you don't buy consoles at launch day.

The 360 is the only console I've seen to date with a production issue worthy of being a buying decision factor. Even the original PS3 had a failure rate within industry standards, unlike the barmy 50%+ the 360 was struck with.

Calling anyone a fool for assuming they'll be in the 99% of problem-free consumers is a little uncalled for.

Don't buy any new console. The Xbox360 and PS3 are still good for another couple years before they turn into the PS2
