And how is this system better than PS3?

Because the giant steamer I just flushed down the toilet has more entertainment value than a PS3

Pooping must be a very entertaining event for you.

For the people who have done this before I am curious do you have to have your original receipt for the xbox in order for them to fix the RROD?

What he said and also, do you have to pay money to get it fixed IF: it has been past one year AND you did not buy insurance?

Microsoft extended the manufacture warranty to 3 years so you should be able to get it fixed free of charge. Just register your Xbox at the support page, and if you don't have a receipt the manufacture number on the back of your 360 should determine whether your Xbox is eligible to be fixed or not.

I also got my RRoD last week. Had it for a year. Called it into support, sent me free shipping label etc....said they would send a box also. Never got the box so going to go get a box from work to ship it tomorrow. Took bout 3-4 days to get the label.

i got rid of my 360 to get a wii. i enjoy it much more. before that though I had my 360 around three years. 2 rings in that time, and it went the same way that others have said. receive the box, ship, receive a different console. 3 weeks go by. they give you a live card good for a month to compensate for the lost time. why can't they just send a new console to begin with and you send them the broken one?

i also tried to get a black one in place of the other the second time. i argued that it couldn't cost any more, and that it would look better with all the other stuff in my entertainment center, and it was the second time i had been inconvenienced. no dice though.

I'd get a Wii too... if I was 8

i've been playing video games since i was around 8, and the wii has to be the funnest console i have ever owned. people rip on its cartooniness, but there is no better console for being interactive. my days of getting phucked up and playing halo online for hours are over.

Gamecube has superior graphics, but yes, the motion capture is sweet, I just think the Wii is very overpriced, it's more than the 360 now, which is retarded.

it is more than the arcade 360 which I am sure you know has no hard drive. who wants a console that has no saving capability?
