    Well if you don't hate it you sure have gone out of you're way to trash on it.

    I still think it would be wise as a gamer to own a 360 at some point, as well as a ps3 of course.

    lol.

    If Xbox Live wasn't as good as it was, the 360 would definently be a flop right now..

    Have fun with your PS3.

    The bottom line: Microsoft rushed the console to the market to try to stay ahead of Sony, thus, the 360 has serious design flaws that cripple the console.

    I still think it would be wise as a gamer to own a 360 and some point, as well as a ps3 of course.
    Well, I agree with you. As soon as Microsoft re-designs the 360, you let me know.

    All they would have to do is make the motherboard out of a thermoset plastic (one that doesn't warp) an voila! Problem solved. Would probably cost what? 1-2 extra per motherboard...

    Sorry to hear that, Knuckles. My 360 has been experiencing some rather abnormal freezing. It's mostly happening when I'm in the dashboard. Hopefully that isn't a sign of (negative) things to come.

    As for trading it in, you're better off just sending it back for repairs and then selling it. At $250 for a trade-in, that's a friggin rip off and it's still a hefty difference you'll have to make up if you decide to trade it in for a PS3.

    damn man. bad luck. but, i feel exactly the same way as you.

    i phoned MS support the other day and spoke to a woman who had only been there for a couple of days, so she said she will get a supervisor to phone me back within the next 72 hours, still waiting.

    anyway, when they phone me back i am going to give them an earful if they even utter the words 'send it in for repair'

    it is absolutely shocking, as well as bull **** the way MS are handling ANYTHING when it comes to the 360. bring out a console that ****ing works please MS. im suprised a massive lawsuit hasnt been held against them as of yet.

    this better be just the beginning....

    there needs to be a worldwide lawsuit against MS and they need to be told NOW.

    if MS dont send me another NEW 360 i will never ever buy anything of theirs again, not even any of their OS. i will attempt to fix the 360 myself or take it to an expert who knows how to.

    Search around on Google for the X-clamp removal. It seems to be very effective.

    Everyone with a working X360 as rare as can be, GO BUY AN HD-DVD ADD ON AND A COPY OF BATMAN BEGINS AND SUPERMAN RETURNS! THE BEAUTY IS SHOCKING ESPECIALLY ON BEGINS(HD-DVD EXCLUSIVE). Anyhoot do you guys think that this is worse than PS2/PS1 errors?

    Can't say I'm surprised. That thing puts out a lot of heat, and it all goes to the GPU. When the GPU can't talk to the CPU... RROD. I don't think Microsoft sends a new console to anybody. Why would they, when they can use perfectly refurbished ones to replace them?

    I am one of the folks that wouldn't buy a 360 simply for the failure rate. It might not be as bad as some might say (60% seems freaking ridiculous), and not nearly what Microsoft says (3%? Yeah right...), however, I don't see that many games of my liking coming out, so I won't be purchasing it.\

    The only reason I have an original Xbox is because my friend got it in a raffle at a Christmas party, and he already had one, so gave it to me. I got a few games for it, but nothing that blew my mind. Fable was good, but nothing I could do without. Next gen Sony games? Give me 40 or 50...

    definitely worse than PS2. at least the majority of PS2 owners were sorted out by now. we are still almost 2 years in the 360's lifecycle and the problem seems to be getting worse.

    with the second generation model PS2 fats, it was as simple as tightening a screw to fix the system. Anywho all hell broke lose and SONY had to fix thoes PS2's for free.

    My PS2 (large) dropped from my room in the second story of our house ONTO a decorative rock for our garden. The internal was shattered, and I basically opened it up and hot glued everything back into place, it's been working like new ever since... the rumble has been gone though.

    I like the games to the 360 hence I sold my ps3 to get one. It just sad that 3 friends and including I have had a dead 360. We all laughed at each other when one of us had the three rings of death. Thinking it was just an isolated incident. Then slowly we all had it. I still am going to keep my 360 and keep on returning it if I have problems. Once my 1 yr warranty is over I'll go and buy myself an extended warranty if it is under $100. I'm doing this because I like my xbox 360. I had all kinds of consoles...almost all the nintendos, segas, playstations none have failed ever! All of my friend never had one fail.

    These xbox 360's were all purchased around xmas time. Only one of them were earlier. Proves to me that even later versions has flaws. Ps3 may not have the games now, but in a year or two later when and if they do and their system won't fail like the 360 I'll be switching back!

    i have just been to where i didnt want to go, teamxbox. actually, i found a thread there that is quite interesting in a PERMANANT fix to the 3 red lights, as breed pointed out before (thanks man), all that is needed is the removal of what seems to be a shoddy x-clamp, and replacing it with a more permanant fix.

    basically what i have been reading is that when the 360 heats up, the x-clamps holding the GPU or CPU in place on the motherboard expand thus rendering the structure against the motherboard to be weak, thus enabling the GPU or CPU to detach from the mother board itself, causing the 3 red lights.

    the fix seems to be quite simple, as all it entails is removing these x-clamps and replacing it with some sturdy screws and washers, to enable a stronger more stable connection to the motherboard, and thus when the 360 overheats, the CPU or GPU wont detach from the motherboard.

    i would suggest a mod making a thread of this nature a sticky for those who are out of warranty and looking to fix the consoles themselves? i will find some proper guides if people are willing to back a guide to a permanant 360 fix sticky at the top of the page? if people back this i will find some guides and re-post them here for people to look at and follow.

    This is weird. I got the three red lights earlier and now the console is turning on normally. But, whenever I play a game, about 10 minutes in it freezes, but it doesn't give me the red lights. However, I can play dvd's just fine and it doesn't freeze. It's also in a well venilated area. I know the problem is that it's overheating and something is detaching...but it only seems to do it with games. I suppose thats when the system is under the most stress.

    Oh well, at least I can watch dvd's until the coffin arrives.
