RIP Xbox 360 #3

Dear Microsoft,

 

This has got to be some kind of sick joke. Not once have I had a problem with any of my video game consoles, even dating back to my first Intellivision. I still have a working NES, Virtual Boy, Dreamcast, PS2 and original Xbox - yet tomorrow I am going to have to return to Best Buy to pick up my FOURTH Xbox 360.

 

In fact, at this point I don't believe I can find a single person on my friends list who has only had one Xbox 360. I love the console, I love the games, so please do not take this out of context when I say your hardware is a pile of shit. FOUR Microsoft, count em, FOUR Xbox 360s!?!?! What does that tell you?

 

The worst part is, my console has not red-ringed so if I did not have a replacement plan with Best Buy I would be shit out of luck. What happened this time was the 360 decided to no longer output video.

 

I tried changing cables, switching inputs and even trying a second TV - all to no avail. The unit powers on, the startup jingle plays but not a single display appears on screen.

 

I am at the point where I just throw my hands in the air and call bullshit on these shenanigans. If it wasn't for the quality of my friends list I would gladly switch to a PS3.

 

Seriously, what the fuck!??!

 

Love,

 

Tengaport

    Fucking hilarious!

    On a serious note... I'm sorry, bud. Thank god for your replacement plan.

    Ha! Get this.... Leo Laporte is having problems with his 360 and LIVE account and posted about it on Twitter. Leo is not happy. Major Nelson gets word of it and asked Leo to contact him and he'll help him out. Perhaps if you were a tech/internet celebrity, then you can get personal assistance from members of the XBOX team.

    Knowing Leo, he will backpeddle a bit after Larry helps him out.

  • Darren felon 7y

    You can take out two years extra cover on the 360 for a further £27 pounds at Argos, so a least you will have peace of mind for up to three years! Sounds good value to me!

    I'm on my 3rd in about 2.5 yrs. One RRoD'ed so was replaced free. I feel your pain though. I am an overseas contractor, try to get service from Microsoft when your account is in the states and you live out of the country. BLOWS THEIR MIND.
