Is there anything special I should know? I've heard horror stories about 360s, such as a person getting the signatures wiped off his 360 that was signed by the Bungie team or someone on purpose by the repair center, and people getting back their 360s only to have them give a red ring of death a day after.

I sent it in because it wasn't detecting discs, and I already removed my hard drive.

I have it ready to be sent, but I'm not going to untill I get your oppinions.

Anything special I should know?

I thought they only repaired hardrive failures (red rings), but whatever. I got mine back in the expected 3-6 weeks with a free month of live. It was all good for me.

If it still doesn't work on return, they're willing to do a 2 week job with 1st class shipping AND microsoft will through in a free game (of some little choice catalog thing).

My sory:
Sent it away UPS lost it for 8 weeks, after 9 360-less weeks, UPS admits theyve lost it, MS sends me a new one, that last for 3 days breaks, I send that one back and get one that works.

The plus's:
They let me keep the hard-drives for every one.
MS sent me a wired controller and a copy of Crackdown as compensation.

No, just send it. Microsoft is actually really good about repairs in most cases. When I got mine back, it was really loud whenever it turned on. We called Microsoft and they offered to send it back with priority shipping plus a free game (they only offered Viva Pinata in my case).

Actually, they'll repair it for free for anyone who gets a ring of death. They will repair any problem you have if you are under warranty or if you fork over $90.

I got the 3RoD, sent it off, got sent back a new console within a month, with a months free LIVE.
Lost my profile and gamerpoints and all that, but i'm not the type of person to obsess over it, only lost like 8K GP anyways.

Should be fine though.
Just send it off.

Yeah, I know about the fee. I just assumed you were sending it free. However, I realize that you probably wouldn't have made this thread if you weren't paying for it.

Carry on.

Get a PS3 if you want an inferior console.

You know, you're right.

I'd just send it in if i were you.

When I sent mine in, It took 7 weeks and I got a free month of live.

Less then a month later, same thing happens even though I got a brand ****ing new Xbox.. So I just traded my Xbox 360 to my friend for his PS3.

Good ****ing trade.

You mean that over glorified Blu-ray player?

Fringo
03-27-2008, 03:20 PM
I don't even care about Blue-Ray.

Small selection of games? Ya because it's only been out for about a year and some while Xbox 360 has been out 2 times as long.

Krob

My penis is evolving.


PS3 doesn't get enough glory if you ask me.
Xbox does have beter games, yes.
PS3 has blu-ray/SixAxis/Apparently can go 4-D.
Xbox... Has kick ass online gameplay. But feature-wise, it can't keep up.

They're both good consoles.

End of topic.

Fringo
03-27-2008, 04:08 PM
yeah, what now failgo.

What now? You guys are ****ing blind PS3 had tons of great games from the beginning.

In my opinion Xbox shouldn't be aloud to have GTA since it pretty much was brought up by the Playstation Consoles.

2-D
03-27-2008, 04:11 PM
yes, it has ton of games

but which are exclusive

they went with xbox because there are more xbox owners, because people usually arent into buying a 400 dollar console.

Nar, let them have something.
PS3 has Heavenly Sword and stuff.
They have to have some good games other then GoW and Halo. Orange box.. etc.

Uh, I got Xbox 360 the first year it came out and it wasn't cheap.

$700 that's tax added though... So it was like $500 plus tax something like that.

PS3 was the same price when it first came out.

Dudeman

WRONG. PS3 got a price cut to boost unit sales several months ago.


What now? You guys are ****ing blind PS3 had tons of great games from the beginning.
Riiiiight >.>

Just because it has some good games now, it originally sold on promises.

Fringo
03-27-2008, 04:29 PM
Yeah, but when it FIRST came out it WAS the same price.

$499.99

Enjoy having no xbox for about a ****ing month. That's all I've heard. And who cares who signed it?

How many people here have played a PS3 for more than a few days? Who here actually OWNS a PS3?

By the way, Heveanly Sword is pretty good. Uses alot of features. Pretty immense graphics. Genius gameplay, if you're any good at it.

If you've had the chance to get used to the PS3, chances are you'll love it. It's a quality console. Maybe online isn't as good as Xbox, but it sure as hell makes up for it.

Two swords here.

Two swords there

And I played the demo and it really sucked. It really looks like a shit imitation of God Of War. It really is just button mashing so much your thumbs hurt while you hope you kill someone and quick time events. Which reminds me...

PRESS F10 TO NOT DIE!

{what you said here}

The sword breaks into two.
Having speed moves and strength. Speed being 2, strength being 1.

If you button bash, you won't last long.
Certain move types kill certain enemies.

It is alot like God of war, yes.
I think it's best feature is when you knock an enemy airbourne, then jolt the controller. Allows you to do some kickass combo's in the air.

It honestly all depends on what you like most.

Fringo
03-27-2008, 05:04 PM
Oh I almost forgot about the feature that allows you to play games like the Wii ( Certain Games ) Like Motor Storm for example.
