tomorrow my xbox 360 elite will be purchased so i need to if there is anything I should take in to consideration while i use it.
Like how to prevent the RROD,Things i should take in to consideration, and anything else you guys could mention.
I already google but I knew most of that stuff.

Thanks in advance.

I think RROD was really only something the first couple shipments of 360s got ****ed by. When I use mine I have a little table fan blowing on it though to prevent over heating. Not sure if it helps at all.

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.

DO NOT BUY THE INTERCOOLER. It voids the warranty if you do get red ringed.

No, I just use a fan. Like one you'd put on a desk or something and set it up behind the 360.

Just keep it well vented. The Elites are pretty sturdy. Mine never gives me any trouble. I have gone through 3 white ones though. POS's, all of em.

Like everyone else said, keep it vented, and don't use the intercooler. I've heard some nasty things about those, and some just heat the system up even more.

Sorry, you seemed to have misplaced your sanity. Hope you find it soon enough.

Nah, just kidding. Your opinion is all that matters. But I honestly can't believe how bad MW2 is in comparison to CoD4.

I don't really get how it's better than MW2. MW2 has way more perks, way more guns, way more attachments, titles, and that shit. It also seems a little more balanced to me.

Unless you mean that Free For All nuking shit. I ****ing hate that. I hate nukes in general, tbh.

Well I didn't own the game until today, and I don't have Live. So I have only played a few rounds of multiplayer and a little bit of the campaign (which seems pretty good so far). But the multiplayer is so much different from the first one. It's all camping now. I can't run 20 yards without getting shot. When I try to camp, no one comes and I get killed from behind. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but the whole experience was just not enjoyable.

Yeah, I'll agree that the respawning is really shitty in this game. In CoD4 and 5 I'd rarely have a game where I'd get spawnkilled. Now, I get spawnkilled about 5 times every game.

It's still a good game though.

Dont worry about it. Had my xbox for a while, never did anything special. Works like a charm.

Just make sure if you use wireless you have a good router/internet connection

Red ringz are inevitable and the sad truth is it happens to us all. I have gone through 3 regular xbox's in the last 7 months so the elite is a good choice. Dont leave your xbox on when away, dont put a fan in it, take out your discs when not in use and just take breaks from it. I found that the red rings have occurred after i had played a shitload of hours over a few days.

Never happened to me. Had it over a year.

In call of duty 4, everyone camped. Didn't matter whether it was hardcore team deathmatch or regular.

In MW2, everyone still camps in hardcore. Attachments such as thermal scopes make it ridiculously annoying. On the other hand, when I play regular deathmatch, it's mostly run and gun or close range shooting, which I love.

You can see where they are in regular with the killcam though, so can't you just go in and kill them...?

I hate it when they camp in hardcore and are impossible to find though.

Well sure, sometimes. A good player wouldn't stay in the exact same spot though. Whenever I killed someone, I made a mental note to remember that the player might be headed my way again.

I'm not saying you're wrong, I am just giving my experience/feelings toward the games.
