    yes, yes, we all know the towel trick.

    if you did more research than "youtube" youd also know its a temp. fix lasting up to a week at most, ten minutes at the least.

    That sucks I will be getting a 360 soon but I didn't know some people got the red rings so soon. But none of my friends who have 360s ever got the rings so hopefully mine will be like that.

    PS3 will have a $399 version on November (40 Gigs)

    I have a Wii by now..

    XBOX 360 sucks, PS3 is too expensive, so I got a Wii

    But if PS3 gets cheaper I will get one

    I had a 360 once and after playing couple of hours in the middle of the game the screen was going black and then you had to reset the xbox to play again. No red ring of light, but this black screen (halted) issue. The same thing happened watching videos o game trailes in xbox live. I got my money back (Walmart) and got a Wii

    You can read about the problems here:

    Also you can watch videos about the situations here:

    why not just take the hard drive out before you give it back to them?

    I'm pretty sure that they would check to see if the hard drive was removed. My suggestion would be to just purchase a new hard drive and replace it with your current one. After that switch your current hard drive with the one that came with your new console and return it to the store for your money back and or store credit. Also you may want to purchase the hard drive at a different store.

    Not many of the 360's have the 65nm CPU yet. There's a certain lot number and team that has them in it, or so I've heard, and so far only people with the Halo Edition 360 have had luck finding the chip in there.

    i have a 360, i got it in june of this year, its just a premium with the 20gb hard drive. do u think its safe from red rings? i also use a cooling fan and i made sure that it wouldnt void my warrenty to have it melt to my console or something. even tho i know using a third party product would void it but they wont know unless something is wrong with it.
    I accept wii friends, just pm me before you add me
