well kind of. Get home last Saturday drunk from the Cubs game ready to blast some fools on-line in Gears Of War. I have my shot gun lined up in some Locust's back and the screen freezes. Now when it turns on I get three blinking red lights.

I heard about this, Microsoft extended the warranty on all 360's to three years for this software issue.

Good News - They pay for everything including shipping...

Bad News - It takes fricken four weeks with Madden shipping in 10 days!!

Gates!! I'm not happy with you. I might sell my stock, you should be afraid. I have .0000000032542 of what you own!!

I splurged for the addition Microcenter coverage for this reason. I had a problem with one 360, called Microcenter, they issued a gift card for the full amount of a new premium unit and I brought in my defective system. I even had the choice of buying another 360 or anything else in the store with my gift card.

Screw Madden anyways All Pro 2k8 is out now and is better than that EA piece of garbage

At least you didn't void the warranty and fix it yourself 5 days before they announced the extended 3 year warranty... I fixed it, but it's even louder than before somehow. Oh well, it's been going strong for about 2 months now -- I'm impressed about that since I have limited skills in that area.

I'm not even messing with it. This was a launch day unit so I'm surprised it lasted this long. I know they rushed to get them out.

my launch unit crashed. FYI they don't give you a brand new 360, you get a refurbished one which is bull

My father confused me. From the ages of one to seven, I thought my name was Jesus Christ!

guys, M$ gave ALL 360 owners 3 year free warranty due to the return / repairs. 30-40% of ALL 360s have been "RED Circles of Death"
