This is for 360 owners who have suffered the 3 red rings of death.

This is the 5th, yes FIFTH time since i got it in 05 that it's broken down. 3 times red lights and twice a system error

I bet my story's the worst. I get 2 and a half weeks of school and my xbox breaks down. On xmas eve for God's sake.

Why do they break so often(they have the longest console warranty of all time by the way)

Any quick ways of fixing it?

Anyway I can get rid of my xbox withdrawal symptoms?

Anyone hate microsoft as much as me right now?

Get a PS3.

On a serious note, my friend is also on an extremely stupid number of new 360. I think Microsoft have a crap product.

I would like the reliability of a ps3 but i prefer the games on the 360.

An elite is an option but they're more expensive and i already have this one, it just doesn't work!!!!

Just buy a new one and return the old one in the box and say there was a problem with it.

Tried all the unplugging stuff. It still hates me. I want to punch the guy on the phone who said they had fixed it last time.

Also last time, box4 a system error one, they fixed the disc tray and motherboard, these are the two things damaged 4 months later

My xbox has never broke. I am not retard.
Your xbox has broke....... I can only conclude you are a retard.

So in conclusion. If you're a retard get a PS3 because the xbox will discover you're a retard and break on purpose.

Honestly, nobody I know has had an xbox break. Nobody I know is a retard. These aren't wild observations based on fantasy people!!!!

Things are getting tough, i don't know if i can make it through the day, I know somewhere there are people like me, i'm not the only one. There's only one thing for it...

.. I'll have to play my N64. These are pretty good by the way. 10 years on almost constant usage and that doesn't break. Not a lot to break though.

My xbox360 hasn't broken on me once since i got it.
Probably because its an elite.
Get a new xbox, they have new motherboards and internals so they overheat much less.
If not, get a PC.

mine too, I got the Halo edition and the only time I got a red light was when the audio cable wasnt all the way in the TV that was over a year ago

i dont see how peoples consoles are always breaking and going through several of the same systems while i've never had a problem.. well, except when my buddy dropped my ps2 and something inside busted. but that thing worked for 5 years! not a single disc read error. i'm not just an occasional gamer either, i spend my life on lengthy rpg games. someone told me he went through four ps2's because of "disc read error." right.. i think theres more to the story. just dont go juggling your shit around and you should be fine.

i'm sure my xbox 360 will be fine as well.

I like the cool controller on the N64, (first with joystick and rumble pack(add on))
Golden eye was the first game i was addicted to. Then it was rollercoaster tycoon on the pc


I never did finish Mario 64...
