The top Xbox 360 and PS3 problems of all time

What are the biggest problems that the Sony PS3 and Microsoft Xbox 360 have had to face? Every games system gets its fair share of problems, and most seem to be with games.

In the past few weeks we have seen a few problems with the PS3 3.40 update, and a few Xbox 360 games, but what are the top Xbox 360 and PS3 problems of all time? This may be a little obvious at first, but it will depend on how different problems have affected you.

For the Xbox 360 we can point to the missing pads in early systems, which would have stopped discs getting scratched if the system was moved. While this would have affected a lot of gamers, RROD is one of the most pubic gaming problems of all time, so the Xbox 360’s red ring of death problem is our obvious winner.

The PS3’s biggest problem of all time may be little harder to predict, we have seen many gaming problems but if we were talking hardware, and software issues, what was the biggest?

YLOD: The yellow light of death started making an appearance some time ago now, and this seemed to hit early PS3 systems, but we cannot put this as our top PS3 problem of all time.

Our choice for the PS3 has to be the massive 8001050F error that affected the PSN, and because so much of the PlayStation 3’s gaming is done via online gaming, this was a big deal. Not to mention this error affected every PS3 system on the planet, apart from the newer PS3 slim model.

The error only lasted 24-hours, but worried gamers wondered if the problem would be fixed remotely or not, and it was one of the most discussed gaming problems ever in a 24-hour period.

These are our top Xbox 360 and PS3 problems of all time, what are yours? Let us know in the comments.
