It’s now widely known that roughly 1 in 5 of all XBox 360s will catastrophically fail, most likely due to the motherboard overheating and the chips coming loose from the board.
So, if this happens to 360s under normal usage, what does it take to get a PS3 to fail? This website took their tests to the extreme: 0 degrees in a freezer for 108 hours, and 64 hours in a sauna at 120 degrees – all with continuous cycling of BluRay movie playing and game playing. And no failures. Not bad I’d say.
