WTF? Xbox

My xbox just freezes while I'm playing. Any suggestions, it's laying down and I have a damn industrial fan pointed at it, I don;t think it's overheating. I'm going to try some things, any ideas are greatly appreciated.

Re: WTF? Xbox

maybe a component like bad RAM or somthing. I don't have a console so I can't help all that much. Is it freezing while online or offline game playing?

Re: WTF? Xbox

Forget it. I'm going out now to buy a new one. Mine's like 40,000,000 years old now anyway. It's a first gen system.

PS3 = Fail. I'm not even going to get into the fanboy wars.

Re: WTF? Xbox

OMG, I had my seXBOX since day 1 of launch so after 2 years, 5 months, and 7 days. I'd say it lasted a while. At least I have some games to play.........plus my PC would take both the 360 and PS3, bend them over and have it's way with both of them....at the same time.

Yeah... if its only been 2.5 years... you probably would have gotten it covered free by microshaft... they fixed my second-week model back in january, 3 year coverage on the red ring issue (yours would have spit out that problem if you'd kept trying at it!)

And PS3 leghumpers : you haven't had enough games available to be able to put it through its runs!! Weren't there several thousand hardware failures after GTAIV came out?

Re: WTF? Xbox

I have games to play too. My PC would run circles around the PS3 and xBox 360 as well.

I'm full of win

I've had a PS2 for nearly 8 years now that runs without a hiccup. I was just playing my SNES the other day that I've probably had for 15+ years.

I'd say it didn't last "a while" at all.

I opened mine to preform surgery when it died the first time, voiding the warranty. I believe this one died from a bad component. And yes PS3 has 2 games, GTA 4.....oh wait that's on all systems, and MGS 4 which I heard sucks.

Re: WTF? Xbox

Hmmm Metal Gear comes out this week.

Ace Combat on the PS3 will look incredible too..

Army of Two was an excellent game.

I haven't played many of the games, mostly because I'm using it's Bluray function a lot and I play the majority of games on my PC.

Ace Combat will suck like all of the others did.
Army of Two was retarded and overly homo.
Blu-ray at least to me does not have a significant difference from regular DVD to be good.

Just my opinion feel free to disagree.

Re: WTF? Xbox

PS3 is great, get a gaming console and blue ray for the price of one.
