Locked: Why you should have brought your 360 at Best Buy

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Why you should have brought your 360 at Best Buy

just yesterday December 26, 2008 my brother 4th xbox 360 broke, RROD. and its the 2nd elite that couldn't take his gaming habits even though MS bragged it was more reliable. but anyways back on topic.

 

at Best Buy the warranty is not a repair plan, is a replacement plan. which means you don't have to wait 2-6 weeks for a new xbox. you just have to bring the broken one in and they give you a fresh one off the shelf. this plan is avaliable to all next gen consoles. the most you wait is 30 minutes compare to 2-6 weeks to get a new xbox, sounds like a bargain doesn't it.

and if you feel insecure, you always have the option of extending your warranty once you bring in a broken one.

NOTE-im not trying to offend with this thread, this thread is meant to help ppl. i didn't take a pic of his RROD elite and posted it for proof because that isn't really that nice to do isn't it.

In reality that is probably closer to 10 days or less.  Best buy is a joke, after buying a tv and a laptop from them there is no way I would buy something that costs more than $100 there.  Their extended warranty is beyond horrid (atleast when it comes to tv's).  So I think I will take my chances without them.

Yet another RROD thread, thanks for the wake up call, I had no idea this RROD issue was so severe.  Maybe you could remind me again next week and the week after to be sure.

i agree they overcharge for tv's, laptops, and other electronics. thats why i brought my TV and laptop at costco.

but back on topic, i only recommended you buy game systems there, i never said buy all your electronics there. i was trying to be helpful, no need for the attitude.

 



I was just giving my opinion. If they have a shitty return service with that, why would an xbox360 be any different?

I was looked at the thread,before i entered it,i saw "Why you should have brought your 360 at Best Buy" then i saw FPSrules and i knew it was gonna b negative about teh 360..

 

@ Bold why stop there,14   360 and 20 Elites thats more reasonable if you know what i mean.

 



Why not post in the official RROD thread? Locked.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.
