It finaly happened.
I got my 360 in march of 06 on the New Zealand launch date.
It has been ok since then.
It does freeze quite abit in the dashboard and has got the disk read error in dead rising a couple of times.
Anyway the real trouble began when I picked up gears of war.
I have had about 20 disc read errors and today it got worse.
I was playing Warzone on Mansion.
I hear the noise of my 360 slowing down knowing I should get the error very soon.
But I don't. I continue to play but then I hear a scratching noise.
It doesn't really concern me since I have heard it before when playing dead rising and my disc was never scratched.
Anyway we win the match and I take my disc out, check it, see its ok, put it back in my 360 and turn it off.
About 3 hours later I turn my 360 back on to play some gears.
Thats odd I think to myself. There is no option to play the game only open the tray.
I open the tray a few times and restart my 360 too but nothing helps.
I try a few other games ( 360 and xbox ) same thing. DVDs don't work either.
So my 360 is dead.
Luckily I have a 2yr warranty at EB games
