Re: my xbox 360 is crapping out

Here's how you solve the problem:

1) Pitch the 360 out the nearest window.
2) Go to newegg.com and buy the components to build a kickass gaming PC.
3) Buy the better PC games or just emulate the PS3, 360, PS2, whatever else junk you feel like playing.
4) Relax.

Sorry, I tried getting into consoles and never could. To each his own, just not my thing I guess.

Re: my xbox 360 is crapping out

Thanks but like I said most of my friends have the 360 so changing systems isn't really an option at this point.

What are you asking for your old system after MS fixes it?

I haven't given it much thought. Maybe $200?

Well when you get it back and you are going to sell it, let me know we can discuss this over PM, but I would be interested in it.

So I went out this afternoon to buy another one, and after trips to Wal-Mart, Target, GameStop, and K-Mart, I finally found one at Toys R Us... I have no idea why it was so hard to find. I'm just going to have the other one fixed and I'll turn around and sell it to a friend or something.
I know we've only had a couple in stock since x-mas but that's how it's been for pretty much every system except PS3 which none of our stores have come close to selling out of since its launch. The good thing I can tell u Matty about all this, I personally have only seen maybe 5-6 360's made since September when the new chip sets were installed, turn up defective and none in the last 2 months. I know it totally sucks when one breaks as I'm on my second, but the only system maker I've ever seen to be totally reliable is Nintendo and that is a weekly reminder as I've seen tons of broken PS2's, Xboxs, 360's, and lately a few 80 gig PS3's over the last year.

Re: my xbox 360 is crapping out

Turns out I jumped the gun on the red ring of death, I simply had the system plugged in without the A/V cord hooked up so that causes a red ring of lights.

I really don't know what the problem is, still getting no audio and no video. I'm not sure if I feel like going through the process with MS to have it fixed for $99, so is anyone interested in buying a broken system? Let me know with a PM.

You know, we are becoming a very rare breed these days. Glad to know The Resistance lives on elsewhere in the country.

Re: my xbox 360 is crapping out

I was told not to plug the 360 into a power strip just straight into wall. Apparently that the power strip can cause the red ring as well.
