XBox 360 #2 is dead

July 24, 2007 | Life

Harumph.

Seems like the 25-35% failure rate of XBoxes may not be far off the mark. No sooner does Microsoft extent the warranty against the 3 flashing red lights, aka: Red Ring of Death, my replacement XBox 360 goes down like a 3 dollar hooker.

Do I seem bitter?

  • We’re on number 4. Or was it 3? I’ve lost count, but our first few were from an apparent "bad batch." Did you get #2 at the same store? Try another location and hopefully you’ll meet it with better luck like we did. Check your games, too: the second one wrecked our NHL07 disc beyond readability.

  • Hey, Tom… long time no see, and sorry I didn’t respond (see my latest post).

    I’m "CH54 Gippy" – send me a friends request and we’ll get it on. We’re typically in Gears on Sunday evenings.
