    I didn't buy 360 but a friend of mine did. He played the 360 for 1 day and the next day the system died on him. He did get a new modified system for Microsoft free of charge and it's still working as of now, but imagine you buying a new system and it dies on you the next day! Let's just say their was a lot of apologizing by microsoft.

    Mine died about a week ago, three rings of death, it was a original launch system and being more than a year old MS wanted to charge me 150 to repair the damn thing. No thanks, still since it was a Christmas gift its sorta all-right, though my brother did apparently pay 900 dollars for nothing. This is a system that wasn't abused, I live in Florida and in a brick house so I have no reason to put the heat on 90 degrees and neither was the system overheated at anytime. If anything this console has had the least abuse of any console I've owned, the least use (it was off for months at a time, most frequent use of it was as a DVD player. Especially when those six games were done with, and good launch titles were few), and yet it still died on me without any reason. Indeed, I'm dubious on purchasing another or a PS3 until these systems are proven to last at LEAST 3 years with just normal wear.

    My friend got 2 both broke, and just now he got a diffretn one, and if that breaks he'll be pissed. As crappy the PS3 is the wii and PS3 are the most efficant systems. 360 is to computreb based. I can't belive it lags. I gusse thats with all online games.
