Red ring of death...

...You xboxers know what I'm talking about. Got it last night. Mother ****er won't do **** and warranty ran out in April. $139.90 gets me a fixed xbox, 3 months free of xbox live, and an extra 1 year warranty.


I don't get it. All this new fangled technology and the gaming systems are more expensive than EVER save for the wii.. But here it is 360 and PS3 both are having hella problems. I know for a fact I can go get an NES, plug that ***** in, blow on the game I want to play, and it'll work. Can't say that about PS3 or 360 20 years from now. **** **** ****.

Re: Red ring of death...

The problem with the new consoles is they're packing heat generating power into an inadequate space and expect it to last.

Theres actually some sites out there I've seen that show what to do to fix them yourself... may want to google search it. I do know that if you fix it yourself, microsoft will no longer work on it, whether you pay or not.

Re: Red ring of death...

Well, I've already paid.... Next time though I'm tearing into it.

I'm actually considering "modding" the thing when I get it back to prevent heat from building up. Like fabbing something up to where I can run the console all but taken apart... Just have to find a way to keep dust out.

Re: Red ring of death...

Dam, I wanted to have a PS3 fight

I love me some wii. Matter of fact, that's what I'll be playing to pass time till we send off/recieve the xbox back. I just don't like the games where you have to aim, just to dam hard to be precise... Especially with that red steel game.

Re: Red ring of death...

I really think it is impossible to get a car with RWD to DEAD hook on that game, no matter what you do with the suspension. I think that is stupid. I even put 15 psi in the rear tires that were like 275/60's and still the tires looked like they were full of air....... I think they should have put some kind of drag racing in the game, it's not like the physics aren't there.

You can use the Wii and a internet connection to look at the web on your TV using Opera.

And plus there is all the conversation starters with the Wii:

I'm going to my buddy's house to play with his Wii.

We are going to play with our Wii's.

She likes playing with my Wii.

He likes playing with my Wii.

I like my Wii.

I like playing with Wii's.

Etc

$139 for a 1 year guaruntee that your xbox will survive sounds like a good deal to me seeing as a new one is what $400?
