    And Another One Bites The Dust

    Well it seems another console has bitten the dust. My second xbox 360, which is my brothers, has recently come down with the "three red lights of death". This is the second xbox that this has happened to. About three to four weeks ago I sent my console in to be fixed and have yet to receive a refurbished or new console. Now I must admit this is getting quite annoying. Anyways until I get my new Xbox 360 sent back I wont be on Xbox live or playing Halo 3.

    You're going to have to drop your console off at a local UPS store for them to ship it off to microsoft. As for my coffin it was shipped via Puralator and the box came with instructions on how to return it.

    At the moment I'm currently wondering how to go about contacting them to find out where my new xbox is. It has been five weeks since I shipped it in and they mentioned that I should expect it to be shipped within three to four weeks.

    Finally what annoys me the most is the fact that I have 48hours to pick up my reserved copies of H3. So even though I have no Xbox 360 I'll have two copies of the brand new H3 sitting in my room.

    well when you go to xbox.com and support front page there is a check my repair status button, maybe that can help you out, I thought they said they email you to let you know what's going on? I guess since your in canada it will take a little longer for your system to be shipped, but 5 weeks is brutal..mine also said allow 4 weeks which is pushing it! I hope everything is alright with it. I wonder how long the repaired systems last until they need to visit the doctor again..

    Yeah i'm getting tired of Microsoft's bullshit too. Mine broke (go figure) and it took 5 weeks to return. Why do they make such rubbish consoles?

    i agree, for a multi-billion-dollar company they should have the most quality products, they are somewhat new to the gaming industry and maybe underestimated the amount of time we actualy play these games(until the processor fries) and never saw it coming! i read they make the heatsink design different in the recent batch(premium,core) and the elite/halo3 consoles so they are making improvement but its a coincidence that all these 360s are melting down right before halo and when more expensive versions of the 360 come out(not to mention they are losing the next gen race) it really is something to think about

    Wow, that is the worst time for a console to go on strike, especially with the release of Halo 3. I am truly sorry to hear that, but I hope that you receive a repaired console or a new one pretty soon.

    Mine broke the day before Bioshock came out. And I got it back yesterday, the day before Halo 3 came out. So... that's pretty neat.

    Yea my brother had to rent a 360 just so he could play Halo3, his just broke like 2 weeks ago. I guess even the refurbished 360's still get that problem so good luck... I have a feeling Halo3 is going to kill a bunch of systems.
