Thank god for the 3 year warranty. Although with the 2-3week wait I'll have to get it back I guess the Ninja Gaiden 2 pre-order was a waste of time.

Yeah maybe I should get a PS3. Then I could enjoy all those lovely shoddy conversions of 360 games with dodgey frame rates and huge preinstalls ;-)

Why don't you all just buy a PC and then everyone would be happy...

At least microsoft behaved better than sony. I remember when the laster units went on playstation they reduced the warranty on the replacement to 3 months!

Luckily my nice halo xbox doesn't sound like a sherman tank and keeps a cool head :D

Raaah. I just had my third RRoD! It's barely been used since the last time it was fixed, so it's not like it's had too much chance to wear itself out again.
Grrr.

Yeah, you say that but I got two red rings of death within a month of each other (after having gone through the sendy-back-repair procedure). and it was during that time that the Playstation won me over with its non-hideous UI, its quietness and the fact that i was able to play online games without being called a faggot my American teenagers.
To be honest having both consoles means not having to get the shoddy ports. But to be even more honest I've barely turned on the xbox since getting the PS3. I was very much "lolPS3" until I used one and then I was all "man Sony need better publicists because this is quite obviously better in pretty much all respects to the xbox"

To be honest to Microsoft once you've spoken to the customer service team who can understand spoken english to a useful level they're quite quick at getting your console back to you, which should really be no surprise given at how much experience fixing their consoles they must have now.

To reiterate: If this is your first RRoD, it really is your first RRoD. Please, continue to laugh at mandatory installs while I chortle over how much unnecessary work your disk drive is doing. Xbox is teh loud! And teh broken!

I can't really deny what you're saying but at the end of the day for me it has to come down to the games I like to play.

If Sony finally get some half decent exclusives out and if developers start using it as a the lead development platform then I'll certainly be tempted to get one, it is a very slick bit of kit.

Maybe when MGS comes out it might change some 360 fans minds, and eventually Little Big Planet, killzone 2 etc, in the meantime though I hope yours gets sorted out quickly and you are back gaming soon.
