Thumbs down yay for MS making shotty products...

(for the xboxers)
so i dled the bioshock demo, start it up and get to the color adjustment scroll bar. then it freezes, no guide button, nothing. turn the 360 off, back on and i see a message on the screen that says please contact a MS tech. GAY. turn it off, back on and see all sorts of blinking red lights. off, on, off, on, back n forth and the same ****in thing. So I call MS and talk to a tech, surprisingly quickly, and they will send me a casket for it in 3-5 and i will get one back within 3-4 weeks.GAY. ohhh, but its not too bad, since they give everyone who has a ****ty 360 a free 1 month subscription to xbox live. GAY! And it picked a great time to take a crap, as Two Worlds comes out in about 3 days. fing amazing.

/rant.

Re: yay for MS making shotty products...

heat is the killer of all things electronic. MS rushed the 360 and didnt add enough cooling, however everyone now has a 3 year warranty.

youll probably get it back faster than that, its just a worstcase scenario 3-4 weeks. just like the power cable recall on the Xbox, they said this many weeks, i got mine in two days.

theyre dying left and right because theyre being used. its a successful failure, they sold alot of a crappy product. PS3, on the other hand, just a failure (IMO better marketing could have saved them, they sucked at showing the masses why 600$ for a system is worth the money). Wii is just a Success.

Re: yay for MS making shotty products...

PC always for the win. Let me just say this..

I went to a Mac store the other day and they had a 13" wide screen laptop, with a webcam in it. It had 80 GB of HD and 1 Gig of Ram. How much did they want? Take a ****ing guess. Just estimate how something with so crappy performance could cost, because a laptop with those specs would be a 399-499 priced for a PC Laptop.

Take a second and think about it.







































you ready?





























$1300. Mac owners are the ****ing punch line to the joke that is Mac. I will NEVER spend that much money on such a ****ty piece of machinery. Don't you ****ing tell me it's worth it, because I've had nothing but headaches with these jokes of an operating system.

Re: yay for MS making shotty products...

the webcam is what did it, mac users are so trendy they use it on daily basis, so they can justify having one built in instead of buying the 50$ one and plugging it into their usb like a normal PC owner would do.

MAC users are seriously pathetic. MS still decimates Apple in the *******, and MS just does software, whereas Apple does software+hardware and everything under the sun, and puts a "i" in front of it to make it sell.

Re: yay for MS making shotty products...

My GF has a Imac and a Mac book pro for her school and job (photographer and Graphic for news papers) and Photoschop Cs3 needs atleast 1 gig to use well her Imac only had a 512 due to they are fin to high, she looked up to get a gig from mac and they wanted $150 for 1 gig, $300 for 2 gig. so i went to Compusa and got her 2 gig (1gigx2) for $89. I will stick with my PC's

Re: yay for MS making shotty products...

It's stuff like that peeves me to no end when people say Mac is so good. Even in operating systems, Windows might have it's flaws, but Mac is a LONG way away in my opinion is equivalence.
