The only things I kill are wasps, flies, and slugs.

And I dont do it nicely either. I boiled a slug in highly saturated salt water and put a wasp in a microwave. I hate wasps so much.

I thought it would be the police coming to pick up your dad on christmas morning.
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

You should have gotten a ps3.

the worst thing to happen couldn't possibly be the red ring of death. What if you got disembowelled by a rabid hamster? Surely that would class as slightly worse...

EDIT: I just found out my aunt had a heart attack this morning. Is THAT not worse than your stupid xbox?

My friends red-ringed about a month or so ago. It took three weeks to repair, then 5 days after he got it back, it red-ringed again. I lol'd.

hardly. give me your reasons.

ps3 has: built in wifi, FREE online, rechargeable wireless controllers that come standard with the system, 4 usb ports compared to xboxs 2.
granted, we dont have the game library YET, but its so ****ing powerful, were getting previously exclusive xbox games to become ps3 titles as well (bioshock anyone?)

On a real note, I got red lights a week ago and I kicked the Xbox and it works fine now.

It's going to the fifth circle of hell, where entusiasts fight over whatever's better:

THE XBOX or THE PS3

Seriously, guys.
We all know PS3 is superior.

Im sure he doesnt work for any.

Sony doesnt need its factory workers to push how great it is.

Thats not much if the only good exclusive game is Metal Gear Solid 4. My money was going to go for it becuase of Final Fantasy 13, but now FF13 is coming out for the xbox so...

Well at least it works

Anyway this gives you all the more reason to spend time with family (if you don't have family then I can see why you may be a bit upset by this).

PS3 has MGS4. That game is worth £300 on it's own, so to get it for cheaper is awesome!

Something like that happened to my friend.
He got the red rings, and he sent it in. Three weeks later they send it back again, and it still has the red rings. So he sends it back, and guess what, still has the red rings.

my friends xbox has encountered the "red ring of death" numerous times lmao, xbox 360 is so damn unreliable.

Im happy with my ps3
#37
dude, just buy an intercooler fan for the Xbox 360. Keeps the temperature down and prevents anything from going to ****. I mean, sure its loud and annoying, but thats a small price to pay to prevent your Xbox from frying. The fan is like 20 bucks or so.
#38
^^invalidates warranty, it can burn out ur power supply area...
jeez read up man :P
also the intercooler doesnt sort the dodgy solder MS use

that has to be the stupidest suggestion i've ever seen on the internet.

Well its definitely broken, and its telling me "Error code E 47" which has something to do with the AV cables. its long out of warrantee too lol

X box is better for multiplayer games, im sure the PS3 is more powerful but have you seen GOW2 dude? its beautiful.
