GOD MOTHER EFFIING PEICE IF CRAP (that's the closest i can keep it to family oriented while explaining my rage!!!)
I had an original 360 two bloody months after launch. It worked for about a year and a half and it broke. I jerry-rigged it opened it up and soldered it's cpu a little bit cause after looking out it i noticed that it overheated, cracked from cooling and came loose causing a RROD. (wear a grounding bracelet if you attempt to do this, but im not sure if this is what causes all RROD.) Well it worked for a little and started giving me my three lights again three months later. Alrighty opened it up again. CPU was fine....i couldn't figure out what to do.
Well It's open, warranty void. Ok whatever I'll have a friend look at it. He couldn't figure it out. either. I decide to do the towel trick....ok it's working, but that was really annoying and really stupid. A week after the towel trick IT STARTED EATING MY GAMES....well what do I do.....I sell it on ebay since it's technically still working and I tell the guy whats up. Said he didn't care, havn't heard from it since.
This was all about 9 months ago. I have been 360 less for 9 months not really missing it. Now trust me I don't mean to turn this into a fanboy war at all, I have a ps3 as well and it has been giving me no trouble and I use it more, however It was still nice to use the 360 for some exclusives.
Lately I was hearing that the 360 was RROD proof now. I also heard that it's still around. I didn't know who to beleive in forums cause well....a 360 fanboy will tell you one thing and a ps3 one another and even if they arn't a fanboy theres almost no way of telling other then looking at post history which i don't want to go through.
Well to say the least, I wanted one again, specifically for Alan Wake and that slight chance that Mass Effect 2 is still exlusive. (I get excited for games too soon I have a wii already for monster hunter tri)
I bought the system last week. JUST LAST WEEK. About 15 minutes ago, I was going to pop in some Beautiful Katamari since no one was online for some Resistance 2. Guess what greets me....a bloody fucking red ring.
So I haves a question. Can I use the warranty to get my money back instead of a new console.....I'm tired of this bullshit and I don't want to go through it again. It's like playing on borrowed time.
EDIT: Can someone PM me the answer chances are im not coming back into this thread
