I've had five Xboxs since the launch (stolen, broken disk drives, etc) but today is the day I got the red rings for the first time.

What a wonderful piece of hardware http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Does this mean you can't host the server for Psyche's RSV2 game on Wednesday?

I'm pleased as punch with my 360 at the moment. However... I know that it is only a matter of time. I know when it will happen. The day I pick up my soul calibur 4 pre-order, my xbox will die. I've come to expect it.

That sucks dude. I guess I am lucky because I have the same 360 since they came out. I am sure mine will go out when GTA4 comes out.

Ditto on that bro. When I got my 360 back, I had to go to Toronto for vacation.

Sorry to hear that, I've been though 4 - 5 or so 360's to all died or were already dead due to the red ring so i have an idea what your going through (as sadly I guess do many of us. In the end I bought an elite and so far that continues to work *cross fingers*, but at least I've now got an over the counter swap out waranty.

i bought the Halo 3 Limited edition 360 after my launch Sh*t the bed; it worked for the first day then it started freezing anytime i tried to play. Luckily gamestop replaced it without the in-shop warranty given the circumstances.

Our PS3 shuts off after an hour if I have the cabinet door closed. The Xbox just keeps chuggin' away, meltin' it's little brains right out. Needless to say, I don't leave the cabinet door closed anymore when I play PS3... when I play PS3.

NK - Please be aware that I know that the PS3 shutting down is a good thing, no further comment is necessary.

Haha thanks for the offer Ben, but magically it started working again. I unplugged everything and plugged everything back in about an hour later and it did the trick.

I know that most likely it will red ring again, but I used it all last night (and even turned it on and off twice) and it seems to be working fine....for now...

Take shadow skulls advice!

They just released the GX2 series video card.
Run those in SLi. Oh boy! Plus the new 780i chipset mobo, run a core 2 quad, intel, cuz AMD suxor.

I guarantee you wont get red-rings! & instead of using 4x anti-aliasing. You can get 20x anti-aliasing.

Better graphics, better resolution, no red-rings!
