So I posted that my 360 S had frozen once already in the other thread...and I'm gonna chalk it up to the game that I was playing (Splinter Cell Conviction) and not the system.....

Anyways, I was wiping it down today, as it is a giant fingerprint magnet with the piano black finish....I look at my microfiber cloth and theres a shiny X on it, I look at the XBOX and one of the letters came off! :confused:

Sigh...

Use some cheap glue, not super glue. It fits into a little "x" right? Makes things easier that way.

That sucks. I'm also not looking forward to the piano black finish personally as I'm constantly using a dust cloth on my other home audio/video equipment.

Same thing happened with the letters on the side of my GTX 280. It said "GeF rce" until I glued the 'o' back on.

Wow, maybe I'm lucky but I've had no problems with mine. I even threw it in a backpack and dragged it to a friend's birthday party last weekend (I have 500+ Rock Band 2 tracks, she doesn't ;)) and everything has been cool so far.

I'll be more gentle with it going forward.

The X in your hand is definately shopped. Why you would do that I have no idea, but it's shading and thickness doesn't match the scene. Oh look, another letter just fell off!

My 360S is alot sturdier than that. I have to admit you have to rub it down a bit here and there with a good cloth to remove fingerprints, but the letters just dont POP off like that.

Are your effing serious?? I really can't tell:confused: Or are you in denial that the 360S is cheaply made as well?

It's SO fucking photoshopped. Porno is right. You can even see the X clonestamped/healing poorly covered. And the X is super white while the rest is etched.

That or he bought and Xbo from china directly.

Yeah I don't know if it's legit or not, but it really does look like you opened up an image editor and drew an X with the paintbrush!

You really can't tell that the X in his hand is shopped? Are you serious? And whether they're cheaply made or not is irrelevant to this thread. I don't own an Xbox 360 or a PS3 or any console, my view isn't biased if that's what you're trying to imply. I browsed the thread and saw people disputing a guy claiming it's shopped, which it so obviously is.

Look at my O. That took approx 5 seconds in gimp using the painbrush at .8 with a slightly offwhite color, without any shading of any kind or touchups, I thought that would have made it obvious by now. Why the guy shopped an X on his finger is beyond me. You can also see there's no corresponding X in the reflection of the black Xbox which also shows his finger. Why I have to explain this to you all is really funny.

lol... OP even posted two different pictures in later posts, but he probably ripped that X off on purpose just to save his face or he's gotta have mad photoshop skillz yo. :D:D

Is this supposed to be a joke? I can't tell if anyone is serious about this or not. It's pretty blatantly obvious that its a shop. The lot of you defending it, are you just trolls, or blind?

lol.... well it LOOKS shopped because there is a groove on the disc tray to fit the letters it, it isn't just plainly stuck on.

I think my cloth must of caught an edge and a horizontal movement removed it..I'm not sure...

I guess I cant prove it any further because thats how it looks no matter what pictures I provide.....oh well


PS...I have 2 Xboxs right now because I haven't been able to sell off my old one yet..

Hahaha,

No I did not draw it on, it was stuck on the tip of my finger when I pulled it off the cloth, I included it in the picture to prove it wasn't a shop, but I guess the angle of it was too direct, so it has no depth to it.....(its really thin tho...)

I can't believe you'd make a thread and do this. It doesn't even show in the reflection off the Xbox, which clearly shows your finger. Sigh. I was hoping to go the "Yes, I drew it on my hand just for the sake of example, but the letter is actually missing from the console." route, but this is unbelievable.

Its um.....black on the backside? You wanted that to show up in the reflection?

I really don't how know else to prove its not a shop job, but even if I do I think someone will tear it apart.. .:)

Make a quick video?

EDIT:
Just looked at the 1st pic and there is no reflection of the X on the box, but your finger shows up clearly!?

I think this is a waste of everyone's time.
