I've heard many things about this console, and I'm here to get answers, so I try not to sound ignorant or rude, but don't post unless you know for sure 100% about what you're saying.
Anyways, I've heard of this "Red Ring of Death", and I'm wondering what it is? I know it causes the 360 to crash, but I also wonder how many people get it, and if the main reason people get it is because they mistreat the console, i.e, spill drinks on it, crumbs, dust, etc.
I have a friend who HAD a 360, but had some sudden video troubles, like the cables suddenly didn't show a picture on the screen, so he got a PS3 instead.
And I've heard somewhere, and I'm pretty sure it was here, wiichat.com, that a user found an article by a certain source (I'm unsure of who this source was) that said, "ALL 360'S WILL BREAK DOWN AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIFE", and If this is the case, I'm hesitant to buy one.
I was planning to get the platinum package, or the "non-core" package, (sorry, I'm unfamiliar with the 360 terminology) but after hearing this news, I'm not really sure what to do.
I do still enjoy sittin on my ass, playin an FPS on a regular controller, and the 360 delivers that! The wii is incredibly fun, don't get me wrong, and I would never trade mine in for anything, but my PS2 needs updating!
So now I close, and I guarentee...all posts will be acknowledged!
