Luckily Bungie were smart enough not to give him a signed console.

lol, that would have been really funny actually.
This thread swang my emotions everywhere. I felt sad, angry, fooled (Nevada's post), and then read that the guy was compensated. Great thread, it was like a movie! lol
Wow, if only every publisher was like Bungie.

Looks like Microsoft is sending him some stuff as well:
http://gamerscoreblog.com/team/archi...07/557897.aspxRecently, the story of Nathaniel and the "wiped" console hit the interwebs. Nathaniel was the owner of a prized possession. He had an Xbox 360 that had several very cool signatures and drawings on it. He had to send it in for repair and tried to make sure that he would get the same exact console back that he sent in. He did get the same console but the signatures and drawings were lost along the way. People at all levels of the Xbox organization have taken this case to heart and are using it to make sure our repair processes can lessen the chance of this type of thing happening in the future.
We have been in touch with Nathaniel, both to express our sympathy (as gamers, we appreciate what he felt seeing a "clean" console staring back at him), and to let him know we’re working on righting things for him directly. We haven't let on to anyone exactly what that is but, personally, I think it's pretty sick (in a good way!). While this has already been reported on other sites, what hasn't been said is that we told Nathaniel that it would take a few weeks to get to him. I still think it will be worth the wait.
As well as working internally to resolve the issue, we have been working with Bungie and other external sources (No, I'm not going to tell you who, yet). As you’ve seen, Bungie stepped in and sent him some awesome swag while we’ve been working on our project. Coming from someone who lives and breathes community, that was a wonderful gesture.
Again, please be rest assured that there are many of us working hard to make sure Nathaniel will be the grinning gamer in no time.
I wonder what Microsoft will give him...
a lifetime ban for modding his console
well they already gave him back his 360, idk, dinner will Bill?Originally Posted by Ratjar3
yo i have to add, that i have my 360 covered in stickers and when i send it off i got it back with everything on it, but there was some nasty burn mark or something on the corner of the faceplace, what do they get the faceplate of with a hot spatular?
I found this in the comments.

"360 ?, more like three ****sty"
Although I liked that I think that might be the reason. Also, that was one of the most homosexual articles I have ever read.
All of that can be explained tbh, when you place alchol on the ink to remove it, it smudges and it will dry how you smudged it. Case damage can be from anything in the factory, at home, in transit. Jesus some people should just let it go lol.
Yup, you can see the line where the faceplate is on the first picture.Originally Posted by Super Sheep
Read about this awhile back. Yeah, MS blows. Honestly, though, I think someone on the inside did it as some sort of cruel joke. Unfortunately, for the guy responsible, the only people that would find any kind of humor in this would be the pessimistic, shallow-minded kind. Have fun entertaining your audience, mate.
Well, I'll be damned. I guess MS aren't that bad with CS after all.Originally Posted by Phil
Now I can forge Bill Gates' signature. MWHAHAHA!

on the left it is the same - look at the hard drive on the top.
i thought the same as you two did when i first saw it.
and by the way whoever said i was taking this too far, i didn't make this pic, i simply found it in the comments on the source site.
No, on the right is the front without the faceplate.

Lol, that kid got so much back, i'd buy a 360, get it signed, and send it in just to hope I get all of that stuff
Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.6ghz (Multiplier: 9x; Bus: 400mhz; FSB: 1600mhz;)
GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512 MB (Core: 850mhz; Memory: 1200mhz; Shader: 2100mhz;)

6GB Total Dual Channel RAM (DDR2 1066mhz)
OCZ GameXstream 700w

it still doesn't erase what the jackass at microsoft did in the first place, but it's still pretty cool
Whoever did that is stupid, the two sides of the 360 compared are not the same (ones the top, one's the bottom)Originally Posted by wolvespat
