I feel your pain, luckily I've only ever had 1 die on me about 2 years ago. Hope it's sorted soon :thumbsup:

I actually agree with this, they don't get played as often so there's little chance of them overheating :-D

I'll take it off your hands....

Will have to do that.

Luckily, I just bought an Elite last week so I still have something to play with.

Although the one that got RRoD was flashed! :p

I crumbled after Xmas and got a PS3 to go with my 360. After watching my three blu rays and getting bored of Drake's Fortune I've barely touched it in weeks.

Still looks nice though. :roll:

If is flashed, then you won't be able to send back to MS.

They might not check if the seals intact.

I feel your pain - I've lost more 360's than pets in my lifetime... each one holds a special place in my heart!

My Cousins was Flashed, Banned, Dodgy Laser, RROD and cracked on the side. Came back all working, unbanned and no cracks.

I am guessing some slip through :thumbsup:

1 of mine has just been received in Germany, hopefully have it back fixed soon.

I fail to see how a dead console can be considered lucky? Has M$ got us all so well conditioned that we praise the gods when only one console goes tits up? I mean how many other products would make you consider yourself lucky that it has died due to a serious design flaw?

I feel your pain... My elite died in Jan... I grieved for a week and a half until DHL delivered it back to me in near perfect condition!

I'm sorry but MS picked mine up and had a new one within 5 days 2 of those days covered a weekend with a 3 month xbox live trial and an apology all it cost me was the price of phone call so I don't see the point of bitchin at MS for that

I did mine over the internet... couldn't be bothered phoning lol
They picked my Xbox up from my work and delivered it back, they gave us a free months gold membership as an appoligy! :thumbsup:

oh balls this fills me with even more dread, was playing fear 2 into the wee small hours last night and mine froze up, just like the last one did before it rrod. I'm dreading switching my baby on incase it goes the same way.

I feel for you.

oh and fear 2 is one of the best games I've played in a long while, fecking freaky though.

Credit to them that they are taking care of their mistake, eventually. But that wasn't my point, do you really consider yourself lucky for only having one go?

Just think about that for a second.....with that one little statement you not only accept the inevitability of the issue but also dismiss it as normal at the same time. I've seen reports ranging from 16% to over 30% failure rates for 360's, that's well above the 3% to 5% usually expected in the industry. This is a serious design flaw that they are only just now getting to grips with (Jasper anyone...). So are you really lucky?

Whatever way you cut it we shouldn't have this constant fear of RROD nagging in the back of our minds everytime we switch the things on. Should we?

Already gone.

Traded it towards getting Fallout 3 on the 360.

However the flaw has been recognised and they're accepting responsibility, and fixing it accordingly leaving most rather satisfied. It may be a serious design flaw, but it has been done and I imagine they're working on it - The Jasper being an improvement apparently.

As long as they have accepted their mistake and are willing to sort it, then good for us.

My benq 360 RRoD'd sometime last year, it was flashed and i was expecting it to come back with it been fixed, but the drive changed to a benq.

When I got it back, it had the same drive in it, and it was still flashed with the 1.4 firmware, I haven't updated it yet, will do at some point just cba atm

You xbox fanboys eh? How can you even begin to defend the RROD is beyond any rationale, If I told you that any other electrical item you had would pack up at least once in it's lifetime and require sending back the manufacturers for repair - you'd run a mile!

That 5 day (including a weekend) turnaround must be some sort of record, they're repaired in Germany so it must have been transported by Harrier Jump Jet.

To compensate they'll give you a month xbox live card? Gee whizz...

When this generation of consoles is long gone their bad points will be remembered as such :

xbox360 - Massive failure rate
Wii - Distinct lack of actual games
PS3 - Way too expensive launch price

Solution = Buy a SNES and a PS2, problem solved :thumbsup:

You read what I said right? Seems as though you just reiterated part of it and added that the situation is to your satisfaction :whistling:.

The 360 came out in 2005, it's 4 years old this year meaning at some point in the near future Microsoft are going to start saying "tough ****" for early adopters. Not forgetting they have only just started using a chipset that, by even the most optimistic accounts should fix the RROD issue and this is "good for us"? If you take the lesser 16% failure rate and the sales figures on Wikipedia, then it's pretty easy to work out that over a million more 360's have died worldwide than have actually been sold in the UK, and we are the 3rd biggest market for it! How can that be even remotely acceptable, let alone "good for us"?

Oh, and just so I'm not accused of being a Sony fanboy here (which I fully expect to be someone's response): the only current gen console I own is a 360 Elite, and I had an original Xbox and would have taken it over the PS2 any day of the week. I mean with games like Jade Empire, KOTOR and Halo there really was no contest for my money.

That's like getting rid of a fighter jet to replace it with a paper aeroplane. Why downgrade? Buy the new elites instead. Better console, better online experience and better games than PS3. Also, the new elites have reportedly been "cured" of the RROD problem.

That's the spirit!

Did I tell you... I was in Toys R Us last week keeping out of the cold and saw a brand new sealed turquoise N64 with Super Mario... £15.

It's in the loft as we speak!

My 360 elite has a graphics problem which started about 3 weeks ago i think.
No RROD, sound is fine but colours go funny in the game.
Have read it has happened to a few 360s after an update
Not sure if i want repair it or just buy a new elite.
MS customer service for me has been rubbish, want £75 to repair but will have another
year warranty,oh Hurrah, for a console that is hardly played.
My PS3 stopped reading discs & it was collected & replaced the following day.
PS3 customer service was excellent.
Again i am no Fanboy its what i have experienced.

i have a warrenty with game i apid for when i got my xbox...

all i do is take it with the console only.....they look and go change it....

its valid until july...

does anyone know if it will work in any store or just the one i bought the xbox from?

: - they dont check the xbox or anything either...
#37
well powered my baby up and no rrod so far after it freezing last night fingers crossed.

and as we're now talking in more general terms, for me one of the best consoles ever was the dreamcast and it was just a pity it was way ahead of its time.

Oh for reliability though my megadrive is still going strong even after having nail varnish remover spilled over it and the earphone socket still works. I'd love one of them on my 360.

yeh i must say sony customer service for consoles is brilliant.
