Forums - Microsoft Discussion - I'm just curious - how many have seen a 360 RROD?

My 360 fanboy friend had his first RROD. i did't laugh. but he knew i was laughing on the inside... on a serious note though, it's just become an accepted risk for people who own 360s. we'll go to the pub and meet up and someone will say 'mines died'. we all know what it means, people just get on with it (and cry at home when no-one is looking)

Oh, I've seen it.  I'VE SEEN IT!  I witnessed the horror of the RROD, and I haven't been the same since. The twinkle in my eye? Gone. People at EBGames can spot me a mile away. They say I have "the stare".

My best friend, my first cousin, they have "the stare" too. I thought it would never happen to me. One day, immediately after buying Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, and Call of Duty 4, my XBOX 360 looked me in the eye and said ,"Fuck it!". Then it died. Worst day of my life.

My 360 is working fine, now. Still, in the back of my mind, I know I can never fully trust it. The horror.

.................the horror.



mZuzek loves Smeags. 😢

My brothers have had thier 360 RROD onn them 3 times in like 5 months. First time after getting Halo 3, then after getting Assassin's Creed, then juuust after getting Mass effect at Christmas. Needless to say, they were not pleased. Not at all.

ot - Welcome back madskillz

Thanks a million , DMeisterJ. I have a 2-hour commute daily and have little time for anything more than spending time with my fam and grabbing a bite. I love my new job, though. 



I have had two. None, until last December. I packed up a machine for a Xmas trip so it was in the cold in the back of my Avalanche for the 7 hour trip. I got to the detination unpacked everything, hooked it up, turned it on, and a few minutes later it RRoD.

Since I was on a trip, and my brother and law and myself were going to do some significant gaming over Xmas (didn't want to split screen), I went and bought another one. Played it all through Xmas. Again, did the trip home, and again hooked it up right away, and a few minutes later it RRoD. I don't think the 360 likes to be turned on quickly after it has been put in sub zero for a long period of time.

Also, the really nice thing... I got the two 360's back. Then, about week later got a third 360 back... So, in the end it was a really positive experience.

All three have not died since I got them back.
