    Guilt trip for the win? Anyways I would just do what Mitch said and request a new repair along with the possibility of a free accessory.

    Advice.
    When you get your new Xbox buy the cooler. I've seen many people complain then realise 'oh wait I was playing my Xbox in the oven located next to my radiator'

    Also mitch is correct. Complain like never before it will definitely work :)

    I still don't get it. None of my mates have had the red ring [well one but it went after he unplugged and replugged it.]

    Just try to keep it ventilated :)

    The same goes for me. I also had my first 360 for about two years. The only reason as to why I sent mine in to be replaced was due to a broken video port which was probably due to forcing in the cables or something along that line.

    thanks for your concern guys..had a nasty chat with microsoft cs today..all I could get out of them was another coffin which I'm sure they are taking their sweet ass time shipping that out..I only got to play a one demo(Dirt) and I played one round of fight night and it froze up, I turn it off and back on and it doesn't show anything on screen and after like 30 seconds it showed the red rings again and that was it..I'm thinking it was damaged on the way shipping here because I shook the console and it sounds like something loose but it could be the thing that judges if the console is on its side or stood up..the box it came back in is really messed up so I'm pretty sure the thing went through hell to get here..I told them that and they said they can only ship it with 3 day select..so I gotta wait a week for the coffin and allow up to 4 weeks for a repaired one to be shipped out. lucky me
