oh balls, i'm getting deja vu. After spending a crappy night in playing pgr 4 and some unreal tournament what has just happened?

yep my beloved xbox just froze while i was whizzing through some japanese city in pgr. switched the damn thing off but i'm bricking it as this is pretty much what happened to my last 360 only a few weeks ago.froze then bang red lights ahoy the next time i turned it on.

So now i'm yet again more than likely facing another trip into town having a showdown with yet another snotty manager who will be adament that i have to send the thing back to microsoft only to back down after a bit of persuasion and the production of a receipt. then i'll be back on here looking for yet another cheap 360 package and then another trip into town to get another one.

I'm beginning to think is it worth the hassle of having a 360. lol

i,ll update tomorrow/tonight when i switch the thing back on lol wish me luck.

Get an elite

although not immune by any means but mines has been played for 4 months now at an average of 3 hours a day. Froze a few times initially but lifting the psu off the floor has kinda fixed this

My original 360 froze all the time, every day at least once without fail. Died about 7 months after purchase. They repaired it (sort of) and it freezes once in a while, not as much though.

I had that on my first one well kinda....

It froze with green and pink pixel lines:| was very odd. they fixed it and my current one has been going for around a year and a half.

I've had multiple 360's although my Elite is lasting really well :) I've gone through 2 PS3's.............at least i'm still on my original release day Wii. lol

Ive done the 360 thing a few times. Last one was bought 4 weeks ago and returned 2 weeks later after the drive scratched my new GTAIV.
Im now waiting to get a PS3. There's only so much messing about I can take.

Well if you 360 keeps freezing that usually means it anywhere from 2 days to 1 week of get the ring of death
My friends died the other day so hes had to send it back

They are both as bad as each other. lol

Aw dont say that lol
Im sticking with my Wii then. these next gen consoles are useless lol

iv had several 360's die with the 360 problem and send it off 2 microsoft....each time i complained and complained to the manager over the phone and asked for compensation...
they will offer you stupid things like pgr 3 or kameo but if you insist on something better they will eventually back down...

i got 2 wireless pads, 2 gears of war when it was new and a couple of other items that microsoft own.

so if u got 2 send it back dont get off the phone untill you get some compentation, after all its there fault they rushed the 360 out with cheap parts.
#17
well just had a 20 min session on pgr4 and so far so good no red rings. kinda adds to the game, will I complete the next lap before the red rings appear lol.

hopefully it was just a one off but I doubt it so when the inevitable happens then I'll more than likely be getting an elite.

But what would you have to play???


My 360 is on its way back to me after 2 years and 6 months of faultless play.

Is the 360 worth all the hassle??

Yeah it is.

when it comes down in price, i can get games for a fiver and all my mates have one then i'll def get one but until then even with the anxiety i get when i turn on my 360 i'll stick to it for now anyway.

can safely say though I won't ever ever ever be getting a wii.
