So i got the RROD (hardware fail), despite having my (white) 360 repaired just over 1 year ago and charged for it too. I really dont have much money now, but ill expect they wont do it for free.

I dont have any faith in xbox now to get it repaired properly but i have 20 games and i love playing vid games.

Should i

1 Get it repaired by xbox
2 Buy an original (noisy) non hdmi 360
3 Buy 360 elite
3 Buy a PS3 (bearing in mind that console also has yellow light faults)

EDIT: Not to sound pretentious, it's just that you should keep your options open past consoles.

I dunno. I would usually say buy a ps3, which is what I did when my xbox broke, but my ps3 broke the other day too...

They won't charge you for RROD.
My first 360 was replaced, no charge, just had to drop it off at ups.

Yes, the xbox 360 is a hardware failure.

jk. but video game consoles should be tough as nails.

Atari 2600 FTW!

They've been fixing all my friend's for free. Do what I'm gonna do then: wait until Black Friday and get a 360 Elite.

I just discovered this, and it fixed my red rings of death and it's held up ever since I did it a few weeks ago. What you do is get three towels and then you wrap them around the 360. But this is what you do different from the regular towel trick. Turn the towel wrapped xbox upside down and then let it run for 15 minutes, after that is done take the xbox out of the towels and throw the console in the fridge and let it cool down and then leave it in there for 1 to 2 minutes after it has fully cooled. then disconnect the harddrive if you didn't already, which you should have. and then it should work fine.
Freedom isn't free...

WHAT?!

I don't know what PC game you tried online, but it must have really sucked. Consoles have nothing on the freedom of playing PC games online.

True dat. No dedicated servers, mods, or and of the cool shit PC gamers get are present on consoles.

The PS3. It would be stupid not to. The PS3 only has about a 0.5% failure rate while the 360 has 30-50% failure rates. These are supported by surveys and not just fake statistics. Plus the PS3 is now a better deal price wise and has a lot of good exclusives coming out while the 360 has pretty much none. Also, online is free with the PS3. It's a no-brainer decision here.


EDIT: The PS3 also has a better game library.
EDIT2: And Blu-Ray for all us cool kids with nice, big TVs.

fail statistics are fail.

Anyways, I strongly recommend sticking with a PC.

Keep in mind I just Google'd that real quick

But just from my observations I have to say that the 360s fail a looooooooot more than PS3s.

Clicking the first link in Google from an article posted in 2007 doesn't do you much justice.

I didn't click on any links. I scrolled down the results page looking at all the links and they all said the exact same thing pretty much. Plus I don't think I've met a 360 owner whose 360 hasn't broken.

Are you somehow suggesting that the white console is superior to the other colors?

also, get a PC.
