Topic: My Xbox 360 is dying.....


I've had my box since late 2008 and it's on it's final breath. Starting to freeze mid game, etc..... Red Rings will be here soon.

On the rbight side I ordered the Special Edition Halo Reach Xbox 360 as a replacement. I'll get the old one fixed and give it to my niece.

Check to see what the cause is of the failure is. It might be covered in the MS warranty. You might get it fixed for free.

Roger that.... I'll give them a call.

I got the HALO Reach edition Xbox 360 just last week as a replacement. That's running fine. If I can get the old one working I'll put that in the living room.

PlayStation 3 is obviously far superior to Xbox 360. It is like a mini home entertainment system; I have owned the Wii, Xbox 360 & PlayStation 3 and I can easily say that, whenever somebody comes into the store and asks I will ALWAYS recommend the PS3.

My video game system run down from earliest gen to today.

Atari 7800
Nintendo Entertainment System
Sega Master System
NEC Turbografx-16
Nintendo Gameboy
Atari Lynx
Sega Game Gear
Sega Genesis
Super Nintendo Entertainment System
Sega CD
Nintendo Gameboy Pocket
Sega 32X
Sega Nomad
Sony Playstation
Sega Saturn
Nintendo 64
Sega Dreamcast
Sony Playstation 2
Nintendo Gameboy Advance SP
Xbox
Nintendo Gamecube
Xbox 360
Sony PSP
Retron 3 (NES, SNES, Genesis Clone that plays all three on one system)


I'm BIG into gaming.... the PS3 simply doesn't attract me. There are no games on the system that are "Oh My God, I NEED TO HAVE IT" and their online network isn't polished and smooth. The Xbox 360 works fine....

This isn't the first system I've killed. Buried a PSX, PS2, and a original Xbox from simply wearing out the CD Drives. For my original Xbox 360 to last as long as it did and the amount of hours I've logged on it. I'm impressed with the quality and craftsmanship.

read somewhere that the XBox has a 40-60% failure rate.

PS3 online doesn't even come close to what the XBOX can offer, not by a longshot. PS3 has some good titles, but the absolutely STELLAR games are XBOX.

Ultimately though the decision is on what games you want to play not the console. Personally I don't find games on PS3 that appealing and I already have a blu-ray player. So there is little interest for me.

If you are that big a gamer, could I steer you unto PC gaming? Getting a good gaming PC is somewhat expensive (but then again so are guns and girlfriends ) but if your as big an addict as I, PC gaming is the way to do it. Beats ANY console hands down!

Are you joking? The quality of the PlayStation exclusives far surpass that of Xbox 360 [Gears of War and Halo...really?!?]. There are many must have games for the PlayStation 3 which are absolutely fantastic...God of War III, Little Big Planet, Infamous I & II, Resistance & last but not least MGS4: Guns of the Patriots, one of the best games ever made [Multiple reviews gave it a 10/10].

I don't see how PSN isn't polished and smooth. I know we don't have those stupid avatars for those who like to play dress up, but the support it gets is excellent, especially seeing that it is free unless you want to get PSN Plus [Which gives you far more privilege that Xbox Live]
