We had one that died... wasn't RROD, but had a drive fault. I think they returned it pretty much exactly in their service time, but it was something daft like 20 business days I think.

I've been hearing so many issues with the 360 like this, and not a lot of the same from the sony camp. I know which company is more likely to get my money at this stage.
And even then, my sister wants a Wii - cheaper console is making my hands itch for my wallet. Though I can't play GTA on a Wii!

Stupid consoles. Razz

Getting a 360, worried about this RROD.

I've heard the warranty is no longer 3 years, it's just the one.

Anyone know if the consoles that are at the shops now have been upgraded to not come with the RROD syndrome?

i know they've been doing revisions. my 360 was one of the first shipments of the Falcon Mobo (got it at Xmas last year) and it RROD'd after 6 months. I know when I got it there were rumours of another mobo revision... Not sure whether that's been released yet...

a quick look at wiki shows that people think the new motherboard should be coming soon (in America anyway). but currently most of the 360s are running on the Falcon (see my last post for how reliable that is...)

i've got a 360 and a ps3, and personally i feel the ps3 is a much nicer machine. it doesn't make anywhere as much noise as the 360, it boots faster, it's much more reliable, and you don't have to pay for rechargable controllers or to play online. unless there's specific games you want from the 360 i'd say the ps3 is the way to go...

Yeah I've got a ps3 as well.

Want a 360 for Halo 3, Gears of War, Saints Row1..

Did you send yours away? Did it come back fixed?

Thanks for your posts pal.

yeah, they give you instructions on how to send it away. you only have to purchase a box and padding to send it in. postage is all paid, and it took about 10-14 days for them to fix it and get it back to me.

all in all the service was good, but realistically i'd prefer it if it didn't need sending away in the first place...

hmm that's ok. If and when iit does happen to mine, I'll have the ps3 to keep me occupied, and also the Wii..

I've become a console pimp.

Thanks again for your info.
