Another dead 360! How many so far?
Today, I was yet another unfortunate individuals to have my Xbox 360 die on me. I got the red rings of death and did the troubleshooting but nothing worked. So now I have to send it in for repairs/replacement.
Forgive me for starting a new thread, but I did a search and found that there isn't one consolidated place to post this. Also, I'm wondering whether Microsoft's claim that they've shipped 10 million plus systems includes all the systems they had to ship out as replacements. If so, that greatly diminishes their installed base and would make developers quite uneasy.
Personally, I've had problems with my 360 left and right. Little things like multiplayer connectivity, music and video streaming and game lock-ups have been going on for a while. Considering I've owned most major consoles over the last 3 decades, this seems to be the most problematic one.
Does anyone know of a comprehensive list of people who've had to return their 360 so I can get a sense of what the numbers are actually like? In my personal experience, I know of almost half a dozen people in my circle of friends who've had to return theirs.
Anyway, here's a little video I put up on youtube of the evidence that my console is dead: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lH7yd8uIOhE
