The cause of the E74 Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error messages in future you need to put your machine at an open space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make some external arrangement for cooling the console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan etc. But as your Xbox already have E74 Problem, You can either send your Xbox to Microsoft for repair ( just for your information Microsoft is no longer providing Extended warranty for E74 Problem), Microsoft generally takes 3-4 weeks to fix the problem. If you can't wait for a month (I know most XBox gamers can not wait without their favourite Gaming device), You can also fix E74 Problem yourself and that too within an hour without any technical knowledge. I would suggest you to check out the DIY Xbox Fix Guide for more information.

If you bought the 360 within 3 years ago, you will still have 3 year free warranty. Call Microsoft and they will help you solve and repair your Xbox no charge.

Your PS2 is definitely broken. Either send it in to Sony to be repaired or buy a new PS3. Bummer. Sorry to hear about this.
