my buddy bought an xbox, he got the three rings of fire so he got a new one for christmas this year. He didnt kno that there are ways of fixing this problem yourself. I told him and he said i could buy it off of him for $60 (b/c thats how much GameStop is offering him for it). I am seriously considering doing this and just fixing the console myself, then buying controlers and games for it. what do you think i should do? buy the broken console and fix it, or spend extra and buy a new xbox 360?

Old Xbox with ring of fire:
Pros:
-cheaper ($60 + 2(45) for controllers = $150)

Cons:
-probability of console not working after i try to fix it, but in which case i can just turn it into GameStop to get my $60 back.
-probability of Xbox LIVE not working b/c the system may think it's been hacked.

New Xbox:
pros:
- guaranteed Xbox LIVE and gameplay
- no need to buy controllers

cons:
-more expensive ($199 at it's cheapest version)

Fixing it yourself only guarantees it will work for another 4 months or so and you will have to still fix it regularly. Buying a new one is the better idea.

the three rings of fire is a malfunction in the xbox 360 console....microsoft are cheap bastards and didnt fork over extra dough to pay for more cooling equipment for the motherboard. so some of the chips overheat which causes the console to stop working and instead of three green lights in the ring when you turn the console on, you get three red lights in the ring...hence, ring of fire...yes i'm well aware of the johnny cash song...hilarious... you guys are awesome.

Seriously, you can call microsoft and they will send you a box to ship your xbox in and they will fix it for free. They sent me a brand new one and a free month for live after like 2 weeks.
