    It will die. Mark my words. Mine has plenty of space and I don't even have it on for long periodsof time but it broke. I have a ew one now, so hopefully it'll last longer.

    I had it under a year. I play it about 3-4 days for about 4-5 hours max. I use it for DVDs alot mind.

    As for climate...I live in Wales. Enough said on that.

    like $10. :wink:

    i find it's ALWAYS a slap in the face trading in games. i avoid it at all costs, as the return on my investment is extremely low. selling them on ebay is more time consuming but will almost always reap a bigger reward.

    when i got my 360, i brought my gamecube with me, but they only offered me $20 for it. i decided it would be better off in another room of my apartment then as trade-in value.
