I had 2 360's fail on me: DVD rom stopped reading discs and RROD (Just outside of the 3 year warranty.
I had 2 PS3's fail on me: one "yellow light of death" under warranty, that Sony slithered out from under their warranty because I used generic component cables on. Luckily, I was still in the return window at Target. The next PS3 had its GPU go out, out of warranty. I used AMEX's extended warranty. They credited me $150, I just never bothered to get it fixed. I use it as a Blu-ray player now.
I would rather spend $600 on a decent gaming PC and get cheaper games with a similar experience.
My brother and I have our original launch Ps3 60gb models and they haven't had one problem with them. almost 6 years of pretty heavy use on both.
My other brother got a slim PS3, had 2 of them break.
