What I ment there was, the air vents will clog up with dust after a while (or in the 360's case, 30 mins) causing the overheat. Same as if you never look after the vent's on your PC.
same as any electrical appliance that needs venting - THUS ANYTHING WITH ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES
30 mins is a very steep timeframe for overheating - thats the issue IMO...it should last a few hours atleast....even on carpet, or even on a sheep.
it may indicate the 360 will overheat in anycase (even on hard marble surface), after a prolonged period of play - ie ....hours at a time or even days
30mins on the carpet is too short - no matter what surface.
I have left my ps2 on for 24hours delibrately many times, - GT4 24 hour endurances races, accidentally many times (falling asleep etc).........if the Xbox360 cant last 24 hours of power on any surface, it SHOULD NOT BE SOLD.[/b]
