How many consoles have you owned that had hardware failure?

My PS2 fat's disc drive stopped working, had to do all sorts of crazy stuff to get games to load like flip the console upside down. Eventually just got a slim.

PS4 fat had that disc eject problem where it would eject in the middle of a game for no reason. Fixed it by following a tutorial on YouTube that recommended scratching one of the contacts on the inside of the machine with tweezers or something like that.

Other than that I don't think I've had any hardware failures. But I generally only buy one console per generation so my sample size is lower.

None of my handhelds (GBC, 3DS, Vita, Switch Lite) have had problems.


Didn't the 360 have something like a 70% chance of RROD? Definitely one of the worst designed consoles ever (hardware quality wise).
