according to the "Inquirer" , the red lights error are back again on the Xbox360 !!! ( and seems like microsoft is tring to somehow Hide IT ! ) for all those who don't know wich one to choose beetween PlayStation®3 and The Microsoft $#*^$%@ , and also those who "Dare" comparing the Ps3 with the "2 Year Old Still Bugy Microsot Device " ... ( think twice ... )
""""MICROSOFT has mysteriously deleted a long thread on one of its user groups where a claim that the Forza 2 game crashes its XBox 360.
The thread in Forzamotorsport.net was talking about fairly widespread claims that Forza 2 is causing Xbox 360 units to crash. Some of the reports claimed that the game could actually kill the XBox deader than a Dodo.
At the time the thread was deleted there were more than 900 posts detailing user problems. Initially Vole published that the thread was "exclusive content for registered forum users” only, but the thread was deleted for those who were registered as well.""""
"""From Forzamotorsport.net Forums:
"Add me to the list. Mine freezes up about once per hour also, although its been getting worse. Console is well ventilated and in horizontal position. I've had the freezing problem and the "To play this disc please insert into an XBOX 360 console" problem. It occurs at the start up screen, in the menus, in the races..every part of the game. Like most people on here, Forza is the only game that I've had this problem with. When it freezes up I get a clicking sound from the console like a CD player skipping. Its frustrating cause I'm really addicted to the game....when it works."
"If we have problems, they should be fixed. Free. Because it's this game that is causing it, regardless if it's the 360's fault in hardware, THIS game is causing the hardware to fail and freeze and of couse I'm mad because I had to buy a new 360 because my old one BRICKED while playing Forza (no prior problems) and now my new one bricked too (playing FORZA) and I have to send it in for repairs. Within one week of buying it, my brand new out of the box 360 got 3 red lights. Because of FORZA.""""
and another one ... =>
"""I reported yesterday on the threads popping up in the official Forza 2 forums claiming that Forza 2 is causing the Xbox 360 to crash. Apparently, now Microsoft has taken steps to cover up the forum that has gained massive attention in the past 24 hours. I am highly dissapointed in this move, considering I am a strong supporter of keeping things public, particularly when there could actually be a problem that consumers should be aware of. I should have screen captured the forums, but the thought that Microsoft might delete them entirely wasn’t a thought in my mind. Hopefully Microsoft will redeem themselves in the near future, and make some public statements concerning the widespread claims that Forza 2 is causing Xbox 360 units to crash. Some reports even claimed that Forza 2 was causing the Xbox to permanently crash. I’m not sure how much of this is reality, but it needs to be addressed immediately.
In what appears to be an effort to conceal the over 900 replies gamers provided on the official Forzamotorsport.net forums about Forza Motorsport 2 crashing on the Xbox 360, Microsoft has deleted the long thread, now stating that it’s “exclusive content for registered forum users” only. However, the thread was removed entirely, even to registered members. This comes after the thread was revealed and reported on yesterday, gaining plenty of attention. In the thread, hundreds of gamers posted their stories on what happened to the 360 when playing Forza 2, and expressed frustration, anger, and disappointment.""""
