  1. 1.is it reliable when i buy it on Christmas ~ yes it is reliable as it is not going to be the first version that came out.

    2.What is the failure rate for it and how to notice it ~ not high at all.

    3.Is is really fun and awesome. ~ it is absolutely awesome

    4.and up to how many minutes-hours can i play with it. ~ well I would not recommend more than maybe 3-4 hours and should be put on a hard surface and not on the carpet as it may overheat.

    5.WILL XBOX LIVE EVER BE FREE or will it still cost money ~ unfortunateley, live will never be free as microsoft still needs to make money for the server costs.

    6.When will the next xbox be made. and should i wait for it ~ I am not 100 % sure on when or if a new one is coming out, but I do know that yes, even though the elite is a bit up there, it is worth it.

    I hope I was able to provide you more insight

  2. Ok, i didn’t understand your first question.soo i dont know.

    2. The failure rate isn’t that bad or that good to be honest.

    3. Its very very fun and ridiculously awesome.

    4. As much as you want really.

    5. Who knows?

    6. No don’t wait. you could be talking years.s

  3. 1. It’s is reliable on the whole and makes a great christmas present as you can now pick one up cheaper than any other next gen console on the market, (as cheap as £129.99)

    2. Last i heard the failure rate is about 16% of all consoles.

    3. It is fun and in my opinion has a better choice of games than the ps3 and wii.

    4. As much as you want, theres no limits as such although id stick to a few hours a day with regular breaks for health reasons.

    5. I dont think it will be in the near future. Then again with PS3’s free online feature they may consider it. However for £30-40 a year its well worth it. The community is much better than on PS3 in my opinion.

    6. If we look at the timescale between the original xbox and the xbox 360, there would be a new console within 2 years. However Sony have mentioned they may not bring out another console for around 10 years as theirs is supposedly able to keep up. So we cant be too sure about this yet.

    Hope this helps

  4. 1. The likelyhood of your Xbox breaking straight out of the box is something like 1 in 500,000

    2. The failure rate was 30% on release but is now down to about 3%(me being apart of that 3%)

    3.Yes, the Xbox has a wide variety of games garunteing enjoyment

    4. I had my Xbox on for 3 days non stop at one stage (and then it broke) so i would say if you play it for no more than 12 hours a day every day you should be fine (thats half a day every day ever) because i had my one on an average of 17 hours a day and it broke after a year (pretty good consideing)

    5. No it wont, because It cost to maintain dedicated servers Xbox live will never be free (although for only $5 a month its not really breaking the bank)

    6. I would guess hat the Next generation of consoles would release some where around 2012 so you there is still a while to go.

    Hope i helped.

  5. 1. yes

    2. unknown and that doesn’t make sense.

    3. yes

    4. I’ve played 30 hours straight with no issues.

    5. No, it will always cost money.

    6. It is being made now and you shouldn’t wait. It won’t be out for at least three years.

  6. ok, yes u should get xbox 360. they are already working on another console, and it will be released around 2012. yes this generation of gaming is way more than 5 years, but that is because this generation was a huge step for video gaming. the new xbox 360s that came out like in the beginning of september are the most reliable, and it is the best 360 out there, with the most heat resistant mother board, “jasper”. if u get a 360 now, dont worry about it. i got my 360 like 2 months ago, and i dont worry about it anymore because its the best 360 out there. you can play as long as u want, just dont put your 360 between things, where it cant breathe. you can even turn on a fan while ur playing, thats wat i do. o yea, THE 360 IS AWESOME!!
