My 360 annyes me when i put a game in and it spits it back out all the time, i eventually after a hundred goes get the game working, but in that time i've thrown one of the contollers in the fire and am walking down to argos to buy a new controller. :bana:
I am constantly crapping myself that my xbox360 will very soon break down and lie in a huddled heap in the corner crying and calling Sally to come hold him close.
I hear quite a few scare stories about them and to tell you the truth, we all have spent far too much money to have to send it away to microsoft.
Fingers crossed mine stays working well...
Don't try and fix your 360 or send it in to be repaired. If you get the 3 red lights just phone M$ get a reference number and swap it out for a new one at the store you bought it from. The 3 red lights are covered by a 3 year swap out warranty.
If you have any other problems like the DVD drive not working you do the same, but you only have a 1 year warranty.
My copy of Tenchu arrived today. Tried to play it but it was randomly freezing up the system with a strange buzzing sound. I would have assumed that the disc was faulty, but its lack of consistency is not something commonly associated with a faulty disc.
A bit of research later, and anecdotal evidence seems to suggest that its the early symptoms of those dreaded three red lights of doom.
Only problem with that is that in my infinite wisdom, I bought my 360 on the Internet.
Not that its an immensely huge problem. If the three lights do kick in, thats covered by the new three year warranty. The only problem is that it hasnt actually kicked in yet. So if I want to play my new game, I have to hope the entire console fecks up just so I can get it replaced. Which will take ages to get repaired no doubt.
I find myself in a rather ironic situation, not helped by the fact that I am an idiot for not forseeing this.
