Just wait until August 1st and get the 60 gig Xbox 360. Microsoft claims that it is "RROD" proof. They claim that they have fixed a lot the components and switched some things around on the motherboard, but i'll believe it when I see it though...

'Microsoft claims that it is "RROD" proof.'

Link? I'm sure MicroSoft would never put out a statement like that knowing how crap most of their hardware is...

Halo Wars
Fable 2
Left 4 Dead
Banjo Kazooie
South Park (XBLA)
Geometry Wars Evolved 2 (XBLA)
Goldeneye (XBLA, trust me its coming)
Duke Nukem 3D (XBLA, rumor but I heard its happening)
Alan Wake
Splinter Cell: Conviction (supposed to be exclusive but im not sure)
Too Human
Fallout 3 (getting exclusive downloadable content)


PS3:
DC Universe Online ( The Joker!! )
Killzone 2
Resistance 2
God of War 3
MAG (the lag scares me :crap)
Motorstorm 2
The Agency
Ratchet & Clank Future: Quest for Booty

I know there are alot more but these are the ones that interest me the most for both consoles

Well i heard lots of ppl still have errors even when the 360 is "fixed" by MS, but that is the ONLY thing you should do, send it to MS. Look at the box or look online for Xbox 360 tech support number.
They will ship you a box for your 360 and then you put it in and mail it to them. When they fix it they will ship it back. Thats all.

There are some tricks like this towel one where you turn on the sys and wrap it in layers of towls....But that will likely melt some adhesives that might be holding something important.
And if it were to fall off -_-
There are tons more tricks but i am warning you, dont do any of them.
They are likely to void warranty!


Was the system in an open area (not near clothes, walls, etc?) Was it near a dusty area? Was the room hot? Did you ever move the system when it was on? Did you play for long hours?
These things can easily cause the ROD
b careful after you get it back from MS, so it wont happen again.



And 360 owns Ps3 because they have will have much more games, and of course they have the best online play.
Maybe 2 generations down Ps3's online will catch up to Xbox's.

I like that Ps3 is bluetooth, and has a 6axis controller.
And the tons of usp ports :)
I choose 360 over it because of the games, online play, and i can trade games with my friends who have it.

oh!
well i dont know for sure how long it will take to come back - i suppose it depends on what was wrong with it...

One of my friends sent his off and it was there for a month
My other mate sent his 360 off a couple of days later and got his back in two days

so - yeah... dont worry about it

Actually microsoft extended the warranty on the RROD because the elite processors are immune to it and they just put that in the pro, economicly smarter in the long run for them

No they are not! Thats just your opinion, yes you are entitled to your own opinion, but when they are opinions like that! Then you should not be allowed to share your opinion!

Yeah, my friend had one b4 that kept getting RROD. Sent it to MS once and then go it back then got RROD again.
Then sent it back to MS and got it back and still got RROD.

So finally he did one of those tricks to temporaily get rid of the RROD, even though it might void warrenty, and went on cragslist.org and sold his 360.

While it didnt have the RROD, highly likely that the buyer would get the RROD.

MY advice, NEVER buy a used 360. Unless its someone u trust selling it
