so to all 360 users that have had a unit fail can i sell you a car that looks good but is a lemon? seriously i know people that are on their 6th 360 rental from Microsoft (yes i said rental) i would of threw it out after the 1st one and ebay'd all the shit i had for it and built a good pc or get a wii/ps3. why do you people put up with this bullshit is beyond any form of logical reason.
I just recently sold my Original 360 to a friend for 75 bucks and gave him Madden and Kameao.
It never had the RROD on it. I always kept it out in the open and it was able to breath.
I wonder why some up and died.. and some didnt?
More bashing MS and the 360
We get it the 360 gets RROD, you can keep crying about it or you can not purchase it. I am curious as to why someone would continue to buy the same product after it had failed 2-3 times, let alone 5-6? 6 failures is a pretty clear indicating that you are doing it wrong.
Umm... it is fixed on new machines. New 360s have pretty much the same failure rate as the PS3. If you know a way of fixing all the machines that are out there that got bought in the past though I'm sure MS would love to hear it.i am very shocked that 3 years later THEY STILL CANT FIX THE RROD issue. pathetic
There wouldnt be a lot of bashing of MS made a console that actually works for then in a week. seriously there is no point defending MS because all the bashing they get is fully deserved with such a useless piece of hardware that fails alot of times. mine failed 6 times by the way, great aint it and i paid about £280 for it when they first came out. money NOT well spent.

Have you checked to make sure your wall socket and/or surge protector aren't reverse polarity for some reason? Have you checked your electrical wiring for surges or current noise? Have you had any other high end devices fail or have problems?
I can see where your coming from. I guess I have just been lucky so far and have not had any problems, but then again, if i HAD problems more than 2 times.. There wouldnt be a third.. As much as I like 360, its not that great.. and I have a ps3 to boot.. many of the games come out on both consoles now.. Look at RE5 there. Maybe MSG? will come out on both lolGo through 4 or 5 and see if you can keep that positive attitude.
There have been a few class action suits... but they're all destined to fail whilst MS is providing warranties for the dead machines. There would only really be a case if machines were failing and MS wasn't repairing / replacing.Im really surprised there has not been a big movement on a class action lawsuit with all these problems.
Irate Marylander shoots his roommates' console, but the 9mm round fails to penetrate its casing.
When called to investigate a shooting last Friday night, police in Anne Arundel County, Maryland found an unlikely culprit--an Xbox.
The Baltimore Sun reports that 34-year old Robert Preston Kersey had grown enraged by his roommates constantly playing their Xbox at high volume. According to the police report, Kersey emerged from his bedroom at 2 a.m. brandishing an automatic pistol. Rather than shoot his roommates, Kersey took aim at the offending Xbox and fired a single shot at the console. While the bullet's impact disabled the Xbox, its thick plastic casing deflected the 9mm round, which ricocheted away harmlessly.
Other than the Xbox, no injuries resulted from the incident. Kersey was later booked on two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of destruction of property.
Compared to the ps2? Hell yes. I guess some people are too young to remember the massive ps2 failures that plagued that console. Plus, the original xbox was a hideous black cinder block, nothing could mess that thing up.
Not to turn this into another Halo related flame war... but that's horseshit. It's perfectly possible to play and enjoy both PC shooters and console shooters (namely Halo in this case).Not if you've ever played any pc shooter of note.

Hell, Halo was the first console shooter I ever played after being a PC gamer all my life.
trust me for the people hat have had multiple units fail i would want ms to fry as well. its absurd but i always hold reservations for people that get paid for posts and people who just want their product to win. so they go around and say anything and make stuff bigger just because they are weird.
but i have gotten cars, fridges, ovens, tvs, vcr's, dvd players, mp3 players, pretty much anything and everything will have issues at some point. releasing something and saying you messed up and fixing it is ok. they cross the line when you have something that fails over and over now that is inexcusable imo. as long as its not being abused of course then the person that complains needs to get real and take care of what they have.
qtf. i own fridges etc etc and not one of them has made me replace it 6 times let alone twice
Are you really comparing a hundred year old technology like a fridge to a piece of technology? Ipods, vcrs, dvd players, mp3 players, whatever. Shit breaks all the time. The 360 broke more often than most, but they replace it for free, no questions asked.
I probably can't go without my fridge for 10 days, but if your biggest complaint is that you get your 360 repaired for free and have to go without it for ten days, you have big problems.
