54.2 Percent Failure Rate on the 360, Says Game Informer

The XBox, well, it's having some problems, and if you've seen the strange red illumination pictured above, you know exactly what I'm talking about. It's called the red ring of death in the gaming community, and apparently it's happening even more frequently than first suspected., citing an article from Game Informer Magazine, found that the console has a 54.2 percent failure rate, over five times that of the PS3, which is at 10.6 percent.

The magazine surveyed nearly 5,000 readers to get the data. And while the 360's rate is alarmingly higher than the others, it's still bafflingly low because it blows the mind to imagine that 45.8 percent of the consoles have not broken.
