    15. TJG119

      Is it weird that I had a ps3 with the yellow blinking light an never turns on so I switched to xbox an never had a problem

    16. No Top Teeth

      A friend of mine would literally beat his system off the concrete floor of his basement to get it to read discs. People would come over to see it. It started as tapping on the top to smacking it hard a few times and opening and closing the disc tray to full out beat the box of the ground itself. This is not a lie. I swear on my children's lives.

      1. b b

        im pretty sure they had like a metal box underneath the case.

    29. brickson98moto

      Well it would really suck if your graphics card you’re using to model heart attacks started artifact and crashing. That’s what happened to my first xbox 360. 2010-2016. Thing still works for 2D tasks, but as soon as you put a load on the graphics card, it crashes

    30. CoolUmbreonKid 09

      I watched this because i still have it at home

      “NFL Street”

    33. Stixman415

      I remember first getting my Xbox 360 slim on Christmas day 2012. My 7 year old ass went crazy, I played it a bunch, it had finally died in March 2018. Not once did I get a red ring. The only problem I got was from the hard drive logging me out every time, but that didn't bother me. Damn I miss those days.

    34. Shaun Dewey

      The 360 not sure if they all had this issue but a lot had really crappy disc drives that in my case alone destroyed 5-6 copies of NFS: Carbon, they even at one point offered replacements for games that suffered the smudge but they were all either a previous iteration of a current game or was a game nobody bought.

    35. Someguy Studios

      Xbox 360 and windows 7 master race

    36. FfandD Condragh

      The bitterness btw MS and Apple is more for show. If MS had not invested a shit ton of $$$ into Apple when SJ came back, they would have gone under.

    37. /Lucas —H— Rowett\

      He slim crew

    38. Grux Galaxy

      11:24 “NFL street”

    39. Devil's ThadvoGameCat

      Coincidental with that last fact: If you called support for the Astra- designed Nike Fuel Band or the Astra-designed Microsoft Xbox 360... There was a very good chance you were calling the same building / call center. I know this because I used to take calls for one and had coworkers who took calls for the other.

    40. Andrew Cool

      Did he use the word dick do they could get around the kid friendly thing? (Coppa)

      1. Nick

        Andrew Cool or he just talks like a normal person?

    41. MR. PICKLES

      Where you at that you get 20$ controllers

    42. Abel Sm

      Xbox 360 achievement Hunter: ok so I've played every 360 now let's play race orama Xbox achievement: get all the achievements Achievement Hunter: the FBI should be knocking on the door any second now

    43. Jeb Broham

      At 0:36 you can definitely tell the CPU was made in Canada. Is that maple syrup they used to bond the processor to the base? lol

    44. Joshua Turner

      I loved my 360 did you love your too

    45. Splatoon Murderer / Coral

      I got no rrod on my xbox

    46. CAO Designworks

      #10: Wrong. They used IBM's power PC architecture, that's it. Sony's proprietary Cell architecture wasn't used. #9: It wasn't CPU or GPU that was defective, but the solder that was used. In a bid to be environmentally friendly, they went with a lead-free solder. The cooling wasn't sufficient enough to and the heat would cause the GPU to separate from the board. This was largely solved by the now infamous "X clamp." That was what caused the RROD. #8: The Xbox 360 controller was never $20. #7: Checks out. #6: yep #5: Not really an Xbox 360 fact. #4: Not really an Xbox 360 fact. #3: Not a whole lot of irony. And I don't think Microsoft is all that bitter. They invested $150 million in Apple in 1997 to keep them from bankruptcy. #2: Checks out. #1: Checks out.

      7:35 the moment they decided to force everyone to have internet to be able to play the Xbone is when the Xbox brand died & the ps4 had instantly won this generation

      1. b b

        I liked being able to have xbox accounts on my xbox 360 that were on the console and not xbox live

    48. David Empey

      lets be honest though. who cares what your xbox looks like as long as it plays smoothly and don't overheat.

    49. Sarge Slattery

      I remember my older brother waking me up at 2am to show me the xbox 360 he just bought. We unboxed it and realized it had a ghost busters trap power supply. 😅

    50. Captain_Carnar

      Cars race o Rama used to be my favourite game but I played it on the wii

    52. MrMeyer

      Whaaaaaa... I've got that exact silver remote with the switchable D-pad and grey buttons

    53. Svilen Mavrev

    60. Aidan Richardson

      Still have my xbox 360 and use it today, never had an issue.

    61. Benji Greenlee

      Your mention of Microsoft buying Macs for gaming development and being contradictive reminds me of the auto industry, I've seen Ford using Chevy trucks at factories and vice versa lol

    62. Ryan Allsbrook

      funny you say xbox had the same cpu as sony I call bullshit it used an amd apu and the time and rell comp tsa a+ cp teach would know being the xbox and PlayStation compete against each other. the xbox 360 was nothing but a slim pc

    63. IlputocapoMateo

      I really like #4 how you mention the internet connectivity comment !! Its forgotten how many gamers still don't have consistent high speed internet. When just buying a new game, internet is required to install a game and then it will probably have an update before you can play. Then most games will continue to release updates. And ofcorse the single player part of game is shrinking as the online parts takes over.

    64. riccccccardo

      I have the last 360 still playing it today. Had two red rings with the 1st gen ones.

    65. Amir Zaim Mohd Zaini

      Xbox 360 - the only Xbox console where the Japanese loves it...because the Japanese designed it! Also, there were several Japanese-made games which were previous titles published on PS2 turns out being exclusive on X360 like Ace Combat 6 and also Rumble Roses XX.

    66. SaviorAssassin1996

      Was Don fired?

    67. Ana Sandoval

      He said NFL street instead NBA street

    68. Brad Bourne

      my original xbox caught fire from the power cord

    69. Hellhound30x

      I still love the original design of the xbox 360. Loved the top loading hdd, the removeable faceplate, and the dual concavity design. It was such a great system. Its too bad all Microsoft does now is shitty looking boxes....

    70. Joseph Hart

      11:24 NFL streets then its NBA streets
