Xboxes go wrong, while Wiis and PlayStations are virtually indestructible — that’s the myth. We’re hoping to find out whether there’s any truth to it — and we need your help.
We’re running a short survey on the site to try to find out what the most reliable games console is, and to see how many of you have experienced the dreaded red ring of death.
So if you have a PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Nintendo Wii, please fill out our games console survey and tell us if it’s ever gone wrong. We’ve kept the questions to the bare minimum, so it will only take a few minutes. We’ll share the results with the world here in a few weeks, so be sure to check back soon.
You can also enter a competition to win £200 worth of gadgets at the same time if you want. We’ve got a wireless retro Wii games controller, a Bluetooth stereo speaker system, a SanDisk Sansa Clip MP3 player, a Bluetooth music receiver that plugs into existing hi-fis, an in-car wireless music sender/charger for iPods, a Bluetooth headset, and component video cables for the PS3 and Wii, all of which will go to one lucky person who fills out our survey. A note on age limits — if you are under the age of 15, you need to seek the permission of a parent or guardian to complete the survey. Providing this has been sought and approved, you may also enter the competition.
