    Just got the RROD. Called xbox and apparently I still have a warranty. This will be the third time I've had it repaired(all for free) but my warranty will expire in NOV 10 regardless of what the problem is. I'm going to buy another xbox because A) I'm a dork and don't want to go wo an xbox for a month and B) I'm sure this one will break at some point as well(and I'll of course be out of warranty at that point).


    What system should I get? Thinking about arcade and then the 250gb hd. Shit will be about $330. I could go with the splinter cell set which comes with two controllers and splinter cell conviction and the hd for 399.

    Well OT what should I get?:hsd:

    Buy a ps3 instead, and then when you get the xbox back, you have both!

    fuck i thought of this and it's probably the smartest decision but I already all the games i want for 360. Only reason I want a ps3 is for blu ray.... but my current tv is 720 p and i pretty much rent any movie I HAVE to see in HD.

    Sucks that they don't just seel the console wo all the wires games and controllers and shit. I don't need that shit. Let me save even just 50 bucks without having to get all that shit and microsoft could make bank.

    Is it simple to transfer from one HD to another? How the fuck is this even done?

    Can I have two xboxes on two different tvs in my house and use the same gamertag on each one? Obviuosly not at the same time

    thats the claim of alot of people until they get a ps3 and realize it has a ton of awesome exclusives that 360 cant touch.

    and yes, moving HD to HD and console to console is easy. i run 3 xbox's with the same hard drive

    I see your point, but this will be only the second xbox I've bought. If I even buy it.

    360 rocks thats why people keep buying it though. It sucks, but thats just the way it is:noes:

    i went to lowes or home depot and bought everything needed. costs about 10-15 bucks pending how many extra washers you want to have.

    ill see if i can find it again. they are all pretty much the same in the end. and theres no real initial signs usually, sometimes you will get alot of freezing up but sometimes it will just die without any real warning

    A slim 360, now with over 80% failure rate due to shitty design! Would not want.

    Bro, PS3 has great exclusives. If you don't think so and think "hurff durff PS3 IS JUST A BLU RAY PLAYER" then turn in your gamer card and go choke on cocks. Because you are a faggot.

    I know but it's not 1080p so getting a PS3 with blu ray would have been null.

    yeah I'd wait for a slim 360 if you're going to be buying a second. last time I sent one to MS it was only about a two week wait.. just use the time to catch up on housework or something
