Advice: 15 Month old xBox 360 just RROD - Purchased from HMV!

My xBox which was purchased from HMV back in Sept 07 just got the dreaded three RROD, typical I purchased Sonic and Fifa today and Bond last week.

I know Microsoft replace with another re-furb console but wondering if anyone has had any luck with getting a replacement from HMV, the Sales of Goods Act may help?

Basically want the console for christmas and not to keen on a re-furb as mine has the quieter drive and HDMI etc...

Cheers BG1 the irony of the fact that I had just been saying to the mrs I was looking forward to getting back to some game time over xmas after a quiet few months.

Although I thought the SOGA was around a resonable amount of time for equipment and purchase price etc... Just remembered one of my friends husbands is a manager at HMV so might have a word if he knows more!

But there policy is what I stated in the first post.

Will try and get hold of my friend and/or HMV tommorow failing that looks like its heading back to MS and a x-box less xmas, rep for helpful posters (i.e. not fatabelly - although there are loads of RROD consoles), its the rubbish older refurb which I might get back which bothers me!

Should be fine to take it back to any GameStation as its a national chain. I'd be wanting a straight swap for a new one if mine was within 12 months.
