    No article for this one, but rather just a bunch of YouTube videos.

    - People put in the disc (no matter what one), Xbox sounds like it's grinding your disc on cement
    - Xbox One not starting up.

    PS4 fanboys. Smh.

    The Xbone won't start up, but you're able to put a disc in it?

    Also, you can't play a game until you update anyways.

    Lastly, where is your source?

    Optical disc drive failures are pretty common really, mechanical parts are prone to failure
    Examples:
    - guy who bought the console dropped the box/console accidentally but won't admit it so that he gets warranty
    - shocks during transport or at retailer storage
    - anything that involves a shock

    It's really common, now to see if it's more than just a couple of youtube videos...

    Own a WiiU kthxbai

    And it doesn't load the disc.

    And the freeze up on the Xbox One home screen?

    Please read next time.
    What about the video showing the Kinect and the 3 red lights (which I've never seen before)?

    why are you asking me that? I'm not trying to say the Xbone has no defect whatsoever and the PS4 is shit omg lala etc.

    I was just making a statement about optical disc drivers / mechanical failures :)

    No no, asking if iono maybe you know of a reason why a camera would mess up, I just never heard of something like that before when it comes to a camera (though I dont have much knowledge on them or even look them up). Not meaning anything by it D:

    I assume you contacted Microsoft (er, at least plan to when they open)? Surely, you can get a replacement...?

    ah, then no, I've no idea.
    It will be interesting to see if there are global issues like with the PS4 but it's a little early to say for now.

    I'd imagine this will be about as big of a problem as the PS4 hardware failures, and as well, the problem is bound to be blown out of proportion. Now, I'm as eager to see the Xbox One fail as the next person after all of Microsoft's screw ups and backtracking, but we still have to give it a fair shot.

    You guys missing the point. He doesn't have a Xbox one. He only has a Wii U. He went to Youtube and said other owners were having problem. I checked Youtube and didn't see any complaints. Maybe he's telling the truth...or spreading rumors. :moogle:

    Typical day 1 failures, to be expected really. The people involved will get a free replacement, don't worry.
