I'm still considering branching out into a next-gen system (the Wii just isn't cutting it for me anymore) and since I've been ripped off twice by PS3 sellers I'm starting to wonder if perhaps the Xbox 360 might be a better choice. But I keep hearing conflicting stories about it. Couple of my friends swear buy it while others say that the hardware failure is too much to deal with. So what's the whole story on this console? Is the rate of failure (whatever it may be) insignificant compared to its more positive aspects?
