@NEStalgia for my OG XB's 3 had a broken disc draw, they just wouldn't open (as @ThanosReXXX said that was probably a user issue, most likely my brother) one just stopped powering up and the other wouldn't output to the TV, no picture or sound and using different cables didn't work either (and after 3 breaks i had plenty to spare) so i have no idea what happened there BUT they were both used consoles from a shop so they could have been just damaged by previous owners (i should let it be known that those 2 didn't work on purchase, the one that wouldn't output was a replacement for the one that wouldn't power up but the next replacement i got worked fine)

but i did get one that works eventually and had no issues with the 360 after the Slim/360s came out, still running strong even today

@FullbringIchigo Ah... USED consoles. I thought we were talking about all new ones here, in which case 5 failures would have been a catastrophe of almost apocalyptic proportions. The only used console I've ever bought, was a refurbished Dreamcast, as I mentioned in the previous comment, and that was also from a shop with a very good reputation. I don't just buy stuff from private users or smaller game shops.

I've heard too many bad stories about that, to ever trust any of those. Unless it's a private user that I actually know, and can afford to trust...

@ThanosReXXX yeah the only OG XBOX i got new was my very first and that was one that only had a disc draw break, all the rest was used

i checked and i noticed i didn't put that in my original post, so i guess that's what caused all the confusion, sorry

and yeah i usually only get used stuff from stores BUT at that point in time the little town i live in only had ONE shop that sold used consoles and games so i didn't really have a choice

we didn't even get a CeX until 2 years ago and we don't even have a GAME anymore, not since they went bankrupt in 2012 (and even though they was brought out a week later they never re-opened, it's still closed even now, just an empty shop sitting on the high street for the last 7 years)

@FullbringIchigo That's the difference between the UK and US. In the UK it's an empty store for 7 years. In the US it would have been converted into a nail salon, quick care medical facility, cell phone store, or financial services office 6 years ago. That's all we have as retail moves out is endless rows of nail salons, medical, financial, and cell phone stores. Things most people never use, yet somehow they stay in business. Who is buying all these cell phones?

@ThanosReXXX LOL, it's never too young for Flappy Bird and some duct tape!

I mean at most you only need one cell phone every 2 years. I don't think most but the most hardcore xda & Apple enthusiasts buy annual phones. How do 30 nearby stores of the same product/service stay afloat when every person really only goes once every other year, or less?

@NEStalgia Because they're.... fronts, for something entirely different, and maybe not so legal?

@ThanosReXXX Hmmm, you know, I'm naturally suspicious of everything.....but these things are fully corporate AT&T/Verizon/T-Mobile stores, plus their MVNO subsidiaries like Cricket..... either authorized 3rd party franchises (Verizon/TMO) or corporate owned (AT&T). So probably not fronts.

Unlike that pizza place down the street that was busted as a coke dealer.....and I don't mean the 2 liters free with a large 1-topping pizza....

I don't have a 360 or PS3 but I am aware of all the problems associated with them. My original Xbox One didn't have issues (huge but totally silent) and my Xbox One X doesn't either. My PS4 used to eject discs randomly even while playing forcing games to be closed and losing progress and it was only solved by removing the rubber around the eject button. It also outputs a black screen for half a second randomly, it still does. It also sounds like a hairdryer. Considering that I have used the Xbox One/X much more, the PS4 isn't as solid in my experience.

I had issues with my Wii that had the GPU failure and output green pixels, my first 3DS that also output wrong colours on the top screen. My Wii U has never failed and I have used it a lot. I don't have a Switch of my own but my friends have had the typical Switch issues and it is the worst-built Nintendo console compared to every other that we have ever owned.

Only consoles I've ever had any issues with are my launch switch which I think is going to kick the bucket any day now, and my 2nd XB1S. Disc drive didn't work but I didn't know until a couple months after using it. My launch ps4 did start to do the jet engine thing but thankfully it started right around the time they released a new sku so was able to trade it in before it got extreme.

Um...
I want to ask about Xbox games.
Who have ever play Dance Dance Revolution Ultramix 1 ?
Untitled
When i read from remywiki, DDR ultramix has 51 songs by total, plus 30 songs (called Song Pack) from DLC.
I know Xbox Live for Old Xbox has been discontinued very long time ago, so i want to ask :
Can i still get that 30 DLC songs without modding the machine ?

I put the video here:

@BlueOcean Unfortunately it is true. Right now I am grieving for my PS4 Pro as I sent it for repair because suddenly I get very load electrical buzz coming from it when I start a game.
Fortunately the other consoles does not have such issues.

@Zuljaras Yep, that's exactly what happens with my PS4. It's like an electrical interference on screen and a buzz, it happens randomly in this case, so I don't know what the reason is.

@Anti-Matter I can't think of any way to buy DLC on an OG XBox at present. Not to mention for licensed games like movie based games, racing games (the car rights expire after a set date), and music games (the music rights expire after a set point) they wouldn't be legally allowed to sell new copies even if they wanted to. Physical can exist because it was already a single transferable license, but DLC is "printing a new license". I think that's lost to the ages, now.

@Zuljaras Ok, seriously, WTF do you do to your consoles? Are you plugging them directly into uranium control rods or something? I thought I had horrible hardware luck, but you actually beat me!

NEStalgia

Zuljaras

@BlueOcean I do not have screen issues just the very loud sound. It happened out of nowhere and now it is happening every time. I just hope the people from SONY are going to really fix it and not overlook it because I am thinking that those companies are starting to take shortcuts just because they can.

@NEStalgia It was ok really. But 2 weeks ago I decided to play some Spider-Man and BAM I hear some very load sound. It could be heard outside the room even.

@Zuljaras Yeah, the buzz is like when somebody connects an electric guitar to an amplifier, isn't it? It's really annoying.

@NEStalgia It looks like some kind of not definitive hardware failure.

@NEStalgia Sony: For the LOUD players, so they can drown out any and all unnatural sounds that their consoles might start to make at some unspecified point in time...

@ThanosReXXX Seriously...between the beeping and those guys with their 130kW arcing Playstations, it makes me really sand X1 has that recurring HDD spinup thing, otherwise it would be perfect! Even Switch is loud (docked) compared to X1.

NEStalgia

ThanosReXXX

@NEStalgia Switch is loud? I've never heard a single sound from my Switch, when playing, and it's sat right in front of my TV screen.

Yeah the switch is not even audible when docked for me. Handheld depending on the game you can definitely hear the fans though. Are you playing with your ear to the dock with the sound on mute or something lol. Certainly much much quieter than the X1S no question
