DON'T buy an Xbox 360...
So I buy a 360 on the Friday Halo 3 came out. Just to show you how busy I've been and haven't played much, I haven't even beaten it yet (mind you I do have Forza 2 and FIFA 08). So after about a week I get a couple instances were Forza is freezing on me, no biggie I figure must be the disc. Then when I get FIFA 08 it starts happening more often so I decide to phone Future Shop to see what the dealio is. They tell me to package it up and bring it in so I can get my money back (this is my second last day on my 30 day warranty). So I go to pack it today and turn it on to get my game out: RROD! Holy fuck this is the worst thing that can happen to a 360!
Now from the stories I've heard I feared shit would hit the fan someday, they have an estimated 33% failure rate but Jesus! You'd think they'd break down after a couple of years not weeks.
Another thing is, I took pristine care of this thing. Well ventilated area, no excessive playing, no DVD's, no tangled cables, kept it flat on the ground, I didn't even let my brother or his friends play it.
Moral of the story is: Don't buy a console that was rushed out, badly made and is unreliable. And if your super desperate to get a 360, wait until you can get your hands on the new 65nm ones (which will be a longgg while).
just send it in to microsoft i got mine back in less than 2 weeks. and the fixed 360s have a lesser chance of being broken again
to late, i already have one, iv had mine for a while, and nothings happened to it
Why am I dieing to live, if I'm just living to die?
I've had mine for a year and its been perfectly fine
Eh mine has only froze about once or twice since I bought it two months ago. Once with Oblivion and once with Skate

I wash myself with a rag on a stick.
oblivion freezes are because of that particular game, runs too high
I love mine. Itr broke once, but i wasnt to peeved. Was back within 2 weeks.
I love mine
is the xbox 360 elite any better?
"Too legit to quit"
At least M$ realized their mistake and is backing it with a solid warranty.....but since I'm still within my 30 days, I'd rather take the money. Don't want another one of those things.
damn man i could see you being pretty pissed if you played non stop for days on end and had to send it back and be without one for 2 weeks, but you have the option of returning it and getting another one and your still pissed? shit happens man and microsoft was cool enough to extend the warranty to 3 years, thats the kind of support i like to see from companies. i have a first gen 360 and luckily i have never had a problem, still have about a year and a half left of warranty thanks to the extention. im more than happy with the xbox 360
