It was bound to happen. The first discussion threads fill up with Xbox 360 owners complaining about crashes
and shutdowns. Possibly there is an overheating problem.
It is not clear what causes the crashes or shutdowns. Maybe some consoles are placed in a poorly ventilated place, or maybe there is an issue with some of the consoles or the power supplies. The discussions are growing, but it does not look like an epidemic just yet.
It would have been close to a miracle if none of the shipped Xbox 360 units would have a problem. Maybe this could be the 11th top reason not to buy an Xbox 360.
