Default This is why I don't want a 360..

That's pretty damn bad although the title is great, and on an unrelated note...

Supposedly the new ones are more reliable. Still, I'm nervous about buying one.

Bungie is fucking awesome.

They are probably the only company that would do something like that.

Mine is still working and it's about a year old.

Granted now I'm having CD read errors every now and then and it figures that it started RIGHT after my Warranty for a free repair ran out.

Mine is 2 years old, never had any probs with it and I really love it. It has the best library by far.

Proud owner myself, haven't had any problems yet.

But then again, I keep mine in a well ventilated area.

They recently made some changes to the system. Different chips/ additional heatsinks. The older units will still have problems like this, but apparently the new ones have a lower chance of overheating.

I still have no interest in getting a newer console, but if I did I'd get a 360. I'd just make sure I get the newer model to decrease the odds of stuff like this.

Mine never got the red ring, or any kind of hardware or software failure, but I traded mine to a friend for a wii & psp

Anything worth buying on the xbox will either be playable on my (superior) PS3, or will also be released for PC, where I can download it for free.

Since then, there have only been 2 xbox 360 exclusive titles I've even wanted to play, and they were both 6-10 hours long. Not missing much imo.

I only bought mine back in october, but I pretty much use it for 6-8 hours every day.... or more.. and I've yet to have any problems with it. if I do have any problems with it though, I have no plans to replace it.

I just found out my X-Box live subscription ran out... eh... fuck, I ain't renewing it. I get all the online action I need on my PC with my strategy games and Half-Life 2 and its mods.

Probably should buy CoD4 for the PC now though, I do like that game a lot.

This is actually the first generation where I haven't gotten one of the consoles. I've gradually gone over to play more and more PC games for some reason. And there is still such an excellent library of older, lesser-known games that are actually really good. I still keep discovering new ones.

If I had to get a console I'd be getting the Xbox360. Still, there aren't enough of great exclusive games released that I would consider getting it. I have zero interest in the PS3 (Playstations have always been my console of choice before), and while the Wii is actually quite neat, it's just not something that would get a lot of singleplayer (which is how play most of the time) playtime from me.

Sucks about the Xboxes breaking though.

My 360 finally red-ringed for good almost 2 years after the original purchase.
Err...not counting the first one I brought, which failed only 1 week out of the box. *ahem*

Happened right in the middle of one of my most enjoyable Halo 3 play sessions ever...

I place the blame squarely on several people playing Mass Effect on it almost constantly for a month straight...

Wouldn't give it up, tho. Don't have a PS3 yet, not getting one til they have enough unique titles that pique my interest. Still buy more PS2 games than 360 games, but the games I do have for the 360, they're the ones I got so I could play them to death-and-beyond.



As for 360-fanboyism? I honestly believe most of it stems from the pre-release and months-post-release hype for the PS3, which was....well....one huge chunk of overhype. Hearing how much Tekken 6 was going to kick the crap of Dead or Alive 4 for months before the PS3 was even out....and now how long was it with no game in sight? Yah, betting a lot of 360 fanboys have had their "in your face" moments, by now.
