When i was playing GRAW today, my xbox started freezing and causing problems in GRAW...then when I tried to start it up again...only red lights would come on (there are 3, I was told its a hardware problem)...does this have somehting to do with GRAW?...it started after I started playing it....and ive had my 360 since launch...no problems...until this...any help would be nice!

I had this problem a few weeks after launch the xbox rep said hardware problem with 3 red lights and needed repairs. I decided to try pressing reset over and over as fast as possible until The red lights were gone and green were up. Took about 15-20 tries but ive been fine since.

There was a long thread over on the M$ forum about early boxes crashing after the March update, and there was a strong correlation with GRAW as well. Some crashed without playing it, but many felt GRAW was directly responsible as it happened while playing it and it alone. Some said other games played fine after the March update.
You're not getting any confession out of M$ or Ubi, so a piecemeal theory is about the best you can do. (read that as "conjecture")
My theory, FWIW:
Early Edition Box + March Update+ High End Graphics Utilization = 50% Chance of Failure
It fits the data, but no one will ever really know unless you've signed a non-disclosure and are employed by one of the superpowers.

The first Gen Xbox 360 had a problem with the video connector on the back. I read about it in an article I seen. My step son had the same problem we had to end up taking it back and get another 360. Not a problem one with this on and mine has never had this issue!!!

3 red lights= Hardware Failure
Call the number and request a "coffin" or box and tape a nice note to the top of the broken 360 stating that you bought a new 360 and you would like a new one now. Request that they do not send you a repaired one or refurbished one. Just request one that was built in 2006. Thats what I did and they sent me a brand new unit built in 2006 in a retail box with a free wireless controler. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
