    Not really.
    Looks like MSU has already shut the pages down...

    that stinks, they were working when i posted that.
    I managed to save one of them though. It's a black screen, and in green font states "your X-Boc requires service. Please call Xbox Customer Support". Also, it repeates the same message 6 more times in other languages.

    My NES crashed 'n burned, maybe twice, back in the day, due to overheating (or a cartidge being in the system for days on end).
    But other than that, I can't think of a single console I've owned which has crashed, for any reason. We accept computer crashes as part of the mechanism... should we now accept console crashes as part of the norm? The xbox is a dream for hardware junkies... perhaps someone will invent a 'fix' before MS does which erradicates these alledged problems.

    My PS2 crashed because I was playing that Jampack demo that was made bad, but other than that, nothing has crashed.

    Over the past few months I've lost track of how many times my Dreamcast has locked up, frozen, crashed, and burned. Those X-Box crash screens were likley intentionally created by someone trying to play a non compatable disc or something.

    You can't compare an NES to something like the XBox or PS2. It's alot easier to troubleshoot a game that consists of 50K of code than it is to troubleshoot something as complicated as an XBox game.

    Every console I've ever owned has crashed/locked-up at some point intime. (NES, SNES, Genesis/SegaCD, 3DO, TurboGrafx 16+CD, Saturn, PSX, N64, Dreamcast) Ok, well maybe not every console I've owned. My PS2 and Xbox have yet to screw up yet. But I'm sure at some point down the road they will.

    I'd probably attribute the Dreamcast problems mentioned to overheating as well. The things weren't really that well designed for heat, and don't like living on thick carpet - most of the ventilation other than that tiny fan is on the bottom. Most of the XBox crashes reported so far have been heat as well, apart from the infamous Demo CD problem of a missing library.

    I can safely say that every console I have owned has crashed at one point or another. Some are more memorable than others of course.
    Perhaps the most memorable occurred during this one multi-player session of Goldeneye when I was a freshman in college. One night we decided to see if it was possible to earn a Quad Kill, since we knew we could earn Double and Triple Kills. So we set the game to License to Kill mode, selected grenades for our weapon set, and assembled in the bathroom of the Facility level. I got the honor of pulling the grenade that would kill us all, and I decided to drop it into one of the toilets for fun. A few seconds after the grenade plopped into the water... BAM!!! The game locked up and we had to start over.
    Oh yeah, and can earn a Quad Kill (Oops!) in that game. [​IMG]

    EA's games on Genesis crashed quite frequently. I can still hear the stuck tone of music from one of the NHL games in my head.
