ROBJETS Icon : (28 August 2014 - 10:48 PM) 2nd and 3rd stringers making the team had something to prove and even our 2nd stringers got owned so yes Im very concerned. The first stringers need breaks and also if some of them get injured they need to step up. So no after this performance start to finish Im very concerned

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 06:40 AM) Even in seasons where the Jets blew, I haven't seen anyone refer to the preseason to complain. Ever.

Jetsman05 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) ^^^ agreed
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) all the admins on this page should be fired
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 12:25 PM) for being assclowns
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:55 PM) our D Line better put him in a WORLD OF PAIN
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 06:11 PM) Rookie QB in our house...Rex do your thing!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:56 PM) with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as our starting CBs
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:00 PM) our offense should be better than last year, Geno looks more comfortable
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:03 PM) The Jets released Jeremiah George and Ellis Lankster, hopefully George finds his way to the PS. AJ Edds was re-signed

Failure Rate: Xbox 360 High As 33% - Sony PS3 & Nintendo Wii Less Than 1%

Posted on July 3, 2007

Retailers estimate that one in every three Microsoft Xbox 360’s sold fails leaving frustrated owners staring at the red ring of death, or worst a black screen that reads “disc unreadable”. When compared to other systems, former EB games associate Matthiew G said…

“Failure rates for all other consoles were not high enough for EB to consider revising their policies. Most other console systems have a failure rate of less than one percent, including the PlayStation 3.”

Not to be left out of the conversation, when another EB Games manager was asked if the store warranty was “worth the price”, he mentioned that the Nintendo Wii, with hundreds of units sold at their location has had ZERO come back as defective. We can hear Nintendo executives patting themselves on the back right now, no wait that’s just thunder.

A Best Buy associate who chose to remain anonymous claimed that the failure rate of the Microsoft Xbox 360 was in the ballpark of “between a quarter to a third” of the systems sold.

That said the Xbox 360 is the most successful console of the next gen bunch worldwide and has the largest market saturation to date with an impressive list of exclusive titles. Simple mathematics tells us that the more there are out there the more of a chance that some will fail, but 33% is still very high.


Microsoft stands behind their estimate that the Xbox 360 failure rate is within three to five percent, which they believe is well within the industry standard and in 2006 increased their warranty from 90 days up to 1 year. While they stand behind their estimate, it unfortunately does not seem to be accurate according to retailers of the product.

Based on a recent poll that was conducted by DailyTech with retailers nationwide, the Xbox 360 was unanimously named the least reliable gaming console in recent history. The high failure rate of the 360 has sent EB games officials back to the drawing board to revise their console warranty policy in 2007 and as a result the one year warranty price on a console is now nearly double!

“We had 35 Xbox 360s at launch I know more than half of them broke within the first six months (red lights or making circles under the game discs). Two of them were dead on arrival.” - said former EB Games employee Matthieu G.

Microsoft has made an effort in the realm of customer service to address the “ring of death” by adding an option to their customer support line (1-800-4MY-XBOX) called “three flashing red lights”. Those of us that still have the Johnny Cash “Ring Of Fire” parody still stuck in our heads, please try and control yourselves.

So while the 360 is the market leader with the Wii gaining fast, maybe consumers should be giving the Playstation 3 a second or “third” look before picking up a next gen console. While we admit that things are not looking great for Sony right now, the company is not going to roll over and die, Blu-ray is the current market leader, and the Playstation 3’s list of titles will only improve as time goes by and more developers familiarize themselves with it’s specs.

man i wouldnt mind an elite 360. but i heard that the elites are almost exactly the same. no issues with the heating were resolved or upgrades for the fans/cooling were made. i guess ill wait for those new nano chips that are suppose to deliver a cooler performance.

nanochip modles are scheduled for 08. price will probably drop by then. as far as overheating i haven't had an issue and between all the people in my house it sbeen running like 12 hours a day every day soo.. plus they make accessories to cool it

i'll likely buy a PS3 some time next year. It's not a worthy investment now to sit and collect dust. When there's more than 1 must-have game, i'll consider it. until then, i still need to see who will be the outright winner between dvd and blu-ray. i'm still mad about the minidisc players i bought when those came out. aside from that, xbox has had my money since 2002 because of XBox Live and their online gaming. PS3 couldn't compete. When they develop an online gaming system that's even comparable to the 360, I'll definitely be sold. Pretty games only take you so far after you beat em. You've got developers basically creating 2 games in one for XBox Live (see: Splinter Cell).

my 360 was a used 360, and it's working fine. no red lights, sometimes i play rainbow six for 4 hours, and i get no overheating. as for those coolers, all most of those do is suck dust into your machine. You're better off buying an oscillating fan and making sure your 360 is in the range of the air if you're really concerned.

the PS3 issue is there overpriced. they scrapped the 30GB model. so now games have
1 PS3 to choose from (60GB hard drive) 599.99
1 wii (no hard drive) 249.99
and 3 xbox's to choose from
no hard drive 299.99
20GB hard drive 399.99
120 GB hard drive 479.99

so even the one with twice the hard drive space is less then the PS3 by over 100 dollars. xbox hit a sweet spot. for the people looking for a cheaper system to enjoy next gen games there is a 300 dollar model. for the casual gamer (most people) there is the 20GB model. and for the hardcore gamer there is a 120GB model. the PS3 issues is it is overpriced and doesn't have any huge exclusive titles. honostly there isn't 1 PS3 only game that i even care about at this point. as amen said. maybe when they boosth there lineup and add some better online play i might get one. but i don't think it happens till the PS4. i don't expect sony to be able to match xbox live but they need somehting better then they got. MS invested 1 billion dollars in xbox live. sony dones't have money like that to throw around.

i doubt that. if they did own 69% why would they enter the console war?
but then again MS does own part of apple and made a zune to compete with it. however that fact MS is a majority holder is completely untrue. i think the whole thing is probably made up by a sony fan boy cause they were all touting how xbox fan boys will have to pay a measily 50 dollars a year but they were gonna get it free. and i tried explaining that there was no way they would be getting it free but it fell on deaf ears. it just doens't make sense for sony who is charging an arm and leg for the system to give away online play. it would make most sense for them to come in just cheaper then MS (maybe 45 a year)

I bought a cooling fan that plugs right into the back of my 360....It was 20 bucks and so worth it. never over heats...

I bought 360 as soon as it came out and i got one of the defective ones and sent it back and they sent me a brand new and havent had a problem with the new one...

also the failure rate was inflated by stupidity.

alot of people were complaging in the 1st gen systems about it scratching the game discs, turns out it was cause they tried moving the system from vertical to horizontal while the game was spinning. what did they think was gonna happen. the level of stupidity in the country is amazing. so xbox had to add into the the manual not to change teh position of the system while its on.

You know why the 360 had all the returns dont you? Because it came out first and EVERYBODY wanted the PS3. So a bunch of kids sent theirs back, calling it defective, and hoped to use the money or credit on the PS3.

That's the only thing I can think of because I'm really surprised how happy I am with my 360. I hated the old controller but the 360 isn't bad at all. Plus it wasn't 600 dollars.
