...for me when you're playing GTA IV on the 29th.

RROD has taken my fun and wrapped it up in a box, never to be seen again for god knows how long.

:cry:

I know it's a pointless thread, but I needed to vent.

Sorry dude. I think I have the answer. Here are all of my points. Now go out and buy yourself a 360 icon. ;)

Don't worry. You're 360 should come back soon from what I've heard. You'll be back in no time. :)

Sorry to hear that, happened twice to me already so I know how you feel.

On the plus side, while games age more quickly then movies do, they don't age that quickly. What I mean is the game will still be just as fun a few weeks from now. You'll still get to play it through you heart's content and enjoy it just as much. Think of it as a belated present rather than the lack thereof.

The hardest part will be to learn to ignore people gloating about playing it. The truth is that there are so many games nowadays, that most of them I don't get to play when they are released anyway; it's something you can get used to.

Sorry to hear man, I got it with Assassins Creed. The messed up thing was I saw the RROD and quickly shut it off, it worked fine for like 2 months after but then came on again but that was it for my premium, there was no coming back for my premium.

While I play the game I'll see if I can buy some beer and pour some out fo tha 360's that ain't here....

I'm going to stay out of GTA IV threads come the 29th.

This just happened to my mate's 360. Lucky for him he had a replacement plan at Best Buy so he got a new one the next day. Honestly, I thought with the new chips this was supposed to be over with. Sorry to hear that you were a victim as well...on the bright side Microsoft has got to be getting better at getting these back to people.

Mine is (was) a launch console, not one with new chips.

He had an elite with the new chips. So we thought he would be sitting pretty...until damn Condemned 2 did him in. :lol:

Sorry to hear about that. :( My cousins 4th console bricked on him around the 3rd and he has yet to receive a console back yet. Lets just say he is chewing his fingernails off since the GTA IV launch is getting closer by the second.

Well my experience with the RROD almost made me miss the Halo 3 launch. Luckily I got a console back just before it came along.

Come down to my place Rik I got two of them running nicely (don't give me the eye), one a revised premium that MS sent me after my first RROD (20 months) and my new Arcade I got for free. Bring your copy of GTA4 and we can play on Live. My arcade now plays any region btw so even the uncensored works in that one :evil smile:

Ha ha, I was considering it till I looked at your location.

I could buy 10 XBox's for the travel costs alone :).

[QUOTE="tmacfan4321, post: 0]Can you say towel trick?

That may be something that could save you here.[/quote]
It's already gone.

Thing is, the console red ringed but then it restarted fine. I just thought sod it, it's gone now, might as well send it in and maybe I'll get a more durable model.

The one person who's happy about it though is the missus :D - she can get some much needed attention now :lol:.

Does the warranty start again now or does it only run for 3 years from date of original purchase (i.e. 2 and a half years ago)?

It does not restart. The new one will have 3 months or until the original runs out. In your case 6 months or so. You could ebay it when it comes back and go buy a retail one to get more warranty.

EncoreEncore was telling me in the RROD thread (you'll probably find it on the last page) that MS now honor the RROD warranty until 2010 even if you purchased the console back in November 2005. I assume you may have in March of 2006 right? I think that was UK PAL release?

[QUOTE="carocat, post: 0]This RROD has turned you into a banning/infraction machine on here! Maybe it should break more often! ;)

When are you getting it back?[/quote]
Not sure when it will be back. I'm a pessimist so I won't be expecting it back before Christmas. :)

lol @ "banning/infraction machine" :D
