    The new Falcon Motherboard 360s are out now arent they? that should pretty much take care of the RROD in most cases as long as you take care of it and dont get a piggy back cooler (like teh Nyko one) and dont put it in ur oven while playing it. etc.

    mine actually did get teh RROD so i took it back to the store, they plugged it in, didnt show up again, said "we cant take this, not trying to be a dick but their basically looking for a reason to fire us emplyees lately" so i was understanding, took it home, has been fine since. (weird i know, it was the 3 lights, not 4, too. explain that one lol)

    another thing to consider is that microsoft doesn't fix all red ring of death problems under warranty. it has to be a specific malfunction/red ring problem of the 360.

    so this "microsoft is your friend/has you covered" talk in this thread is bs. you won't hear them announcing the specifics of their new "3 Year Warranty" in major press releases.

    this is what happened to my little brother. pretty weak on microsoft's end.

    that said though, i bought my 360 last may, and have only had disc read errors, which are supposedly normal... so i can't complain on my behalf, only my bros.

    If you still have your brothers broken console phone up microsoft again and this time tell them that you have the three red rings of death and that your brick light is green. From there they should send you a box to ship your console in. If they ship the same console back after you have sent yours in tough luck. However, if they were to ship you a new console congrats. I had to do something similar to that when my Xbox 360 had a broken video port. I phoned them up and told them that my console had the RROD. A few weeks later I received a brand new console.

    spose that's worth a try. i know he's called a few times, so they may have a standing record of his past calls.

    but going through all this should NOT be necessary.

    i just think microsoft has deceived a lot of consumers with this new 3 year warranty. it's not a fix on their flawed system if it doesn't cover a broad enough scope of problems associated with manufacturer defects.
