Dan...

Have you got the reciept + where did you buy it from?

I reckon you will get the 3 red lights, it's what happened to mine. It kept freezing, I turned on and off twice and then the console will get 3 red lights. I sent it back to microsoft and got a month code for live.

My mate bought from Gamestation at the same time as me, his got the RROD and they gave a replacement straight away ;-)

Wait for a PS3 I hear theres a price drop in january, if you wait until may i hear they'll drop the price when MGS4 and GTA 4 is out too.

[note i am not digging the 360 so dont have a go at me, its a little something between dandoc and a few of us :giggle:]

I got it from boots.com in may 2006 -- then got it replaced by them in april 07 so have had it barely 8 months ---- its only the core version but its not the point if its faulty

Question though - will i get a refurb or a whole new one ??

Well honestly im going to be getting a ps3 next month and will be getting gta4 on it for one reason - i could never paly gta on the xbox controller and the 360 one is the same -- whereas the ps3 one is decent for that kind of game

A store isnt obliged to change an item after the cooling off period [usually 28 days] has passed. Most off the time they will as a goodwill gesture. But seeing as its over a year since you got it and it will say on the order etc they wont touch it.

Aparently you can request a new one from microsoft instead of a refurb.

Yup, they sent you a new console & therefore a new 12 month warranty! Give them a wee call, they're really lovely & you print off a returns form from their website & post it back free :)


Edit: link for returns form if you don't have the original one........

Why? If its just for one game get a 360 arcade version. it's being released on 360 with more features and earlier.

So will they give me my money back as i see they dont sell xbox 360 anymore - think i paid £189.99 for the core but nowadays you can get that arcade thing for like £160 with 2 games and 2 controllers

Prefer a refund but i dont think theyd give me one unless they cant offer me a replacement

I know its not the same company, but i'd already changed it once, 2 months before.

No.... blah blah blah


I stopped reading after that :p Boots will refund him. I don't think they stock 360's anymore but even if they did he'd get a choice of a refund or a replacement. The call centre people are really lovely & the returns dept don't have a clue... My hubby even kept the extra controller & his harddrive when he sent his back!

Don't be all "it's getting annoying" to them... Say you're "disappointed it's happened again"

If you've had it under 12 months then I'm sure you'll get a refund. You're better off phoning them to make arrangements!
