whys that? 2 screwed up in my house.
oh come on! 2 broken GDC 360's? chances of that are.. 16%??? lmao.. sure, sure
will correct the rrod problem . LOL
Harry Potter knows how Microcrap is an expert at failure. He asks you to think of all that Microcrap has failed at. Harry Potter didn't think it was possible for the mudbloods at Microcrap to fail so badly, and thinks perhaps Lord Voldemort may have a hand. He knows Sony excels in the video game market and can prove it through the amazing Playstation 3 console, which is not only much more sexy than what Microcrap has to offer but also has much more power and much better games. Harry Potter knows Sony would never manufacture anything with problems like the red ring of death. Avada Kedavra!

How long is the warranty on the disk reading errors?
MS has not extended the DRE warranty. It's one year still.
I"ve seen that screen before. In the middle of an online match playing Rainbow Six Vegas and Gears of War. No scratches on disc either. First week of ownership also in December 06. And it is still happening.
Warranty is only one year, this is exactly the same thing thaat was happening to my 360, I sent it to MS telling them that the drive is faulty and they said they will fix it. When I got it back (after about 10 days) it came with a sheet saying they had replaced the motherboard...
C'mon, even if you own a 360 you gotta laugh.
Cant say beter again.
The real question is...is what are 360 owners gunna do when their 3 year warranty runs up and it RRODs..so you fix for 90$ and it RRODs agian >.> If this RROD problem didnt exist I guarantee I would have a 360 atm (im holding out for this problem to be fixed..if it ever will be).
I doubt they'll ever fully fix the issue. I think that with the USA's recent economic troubles that consumers will be more conscious of faulty products. They'll respond by not re-purchasing the console after the warranty and system expires or by not buying Microsoft's next rushed console. -Love that Joker.
Just another day in the office.
hahaha thats pretty funny. Thats f'in incredible. They are still pretty lucky it didnt happen during a presentation i can bet they are crossing their fingers on that over there lol. Funny thing is if wii or ps3 malfunctioned no one would care cus it will jst be an unlucky console but msoft has built themselves quite the reputation on these defective consoles. Poor guys. And for the guy reporting bad xbox360 news is still news. If another console breaks we have to report it maybe msoft extend their warranty to all 360 owners and not jst red ringers.
"If another console breaks we have to report it." If that's the case, why don't you write up a story on how my 360 broke. That's right, I sent it in last night for repair/replacement. Make a story! Another console broke, so that should be news too, right? **BREAKING NEWS: Another Xbox 360 got the RRoD!!! OMG! LoLZoRZ!!11eleven!11!** Give me a break.
was it set up in a microsoft display booth?
Don't be stupid benz money. If msoft consoles are breaking down ones they setup themselves for display are breaking down then they must be reported. Msoft has to have 1000's of consoles at their disposal for something like this and the random selection that made it to GDC breaks down that says a lot about the 360 failure rate. Voice the issue out dnt sweep it under the rug so msoft can give us warranties ggeez
BenzMoney is just mad cause his console broke... Is the "11eleven!11" (11/11/2011) the date they said your console may be fixed?
Of course I'm mad that my console broke. This isn't even the first time - its the second! My original comment had nothing to do with my broken xbox, I was using it as an example. Or are you too dense to understand that concept? My point was/is that every single 360 failure is not news. We all already know that the 360 has hardware issues. ITS A KNOWN FACT. Why some people still seem to think that every single peice of failing 360 hardware is "news" is beyond me. It's not news! It was news 2 years ago. I could probably do a search of N4G and find over 500 'news' articles about faulty 360 hardware.
BenzMonkey, if there was a story of every 360 broken, then there would literary be millions and millions of storys of it. Cuz i believe ALL 360s will break down! ALL OF THEM!!! And 2.)Stop sounding like such a whiny little fanboy, cuz that's what you sound like. And 3.) Keep defending this fanboys, keep trying to deny it, so that it'll keep happening and youse will get exactly what youse deserve. And this is coming from a day one 360 owner, check my gamertag.
1) It's BenzMONEY (without a 'k'). Trying finishing high school english to get your spelling down, and work on that reading comprehension while you're at it. My point is EXACTLY what you're alluding to in your post. If there was an article on every defective 360 console, there'd be millions of them! Sometimes that's exactly what it feels like on this site. I swear we can't go a day without at least one or two "defective 360" articles popping up. Good, great, we get it. The 360 breaks down - a *lot*. It isn't news anymore. 2) How am I a fanboy and/or defending Microsoft? I'm the first to admit that the hardware breaks down and somehow I'm defending them and acting like a fanboy?! Christ you're dense. 3) Everyone knows the 360 is unreliable hardware. The only people who still consider that "news" are Sony fanboys looking to troll. FACT.
i can't Express myself in words
MS doesnt have a stellar lineup compared to SONY this year and shoratges and RROD are just killing the console. It is in a very bad shape now
your killing yourself. watch a malfunction happen during their press conference.
faulty or scratched disk.It is something that happens to every disk based devise known to man. Reinserting the disk is all thats needed.
and even thou that could be the case, bottom line is that i have never had to re-insert a disc on my ps3, it's a sturdy piece of hardware, and sadly the 360 is not, hopefully Microsoft it's getting overwhelmed and do something about it I'm really considering buying a 360, i'm just waiting for E3, and i was hoping that the problems are gone, but seems that MS doesn't care about improving the hardware so it's news in a way that i'm being informed that is not time yet to buy a 360
good for you.As for me never had RROD since i got 360 december 05.But because i never had RROD dose not mean it dosen't exist. My neighbors assassins creed on his PS3 freezes while playing,so he has to reinsert the disk.So because it never happened to you dosent mean it dosent exist. As i said earlier on.its just a faulty disk.So now ask yourselves,are we truly gamers or fanboys,because i cant seem to understand how this news can be approved faster than any GDC related news awaiting approval.
Just a faulty disk.. sorry mate i dont buy that for one second. I help my cousin purchase a 360 took it home and we put in his brand new halo disk and a message came up saying "Cannot read disk please insert an xbox360 disk" or something like that. what do you think they do to those friggin disks to make them so unreadable?! Do burnouts on them!?!?
That either you two guys dont know what youse are talking about or are trying to spin sh!t. Cuz youse just dont get it! it's not that its a bad disc, its that the 360 does this with perfectly good discs. Its not the disc causing this problem its the 360s disc drive. I know cuz i had it happening to me all the time. You literary have to either eject and reinsert the disc or restart the system. But the sh!t can happen at the worst times. I cant count the amount of times that i would beat a board on a game (like Lost Planet for example) and the system would mess up and do this to me, and then because of the way the save system was done on this game, i would have to redo the whole board again because it would disc read error out before it would save that board i just beat. And Lost Planet had boards that lasted about a hour to beat! I dont enjoy redoing hour long boards i just beat because the system fvcked up!
That is the pinnacle point of the show, to display how superior your technology is , and what does Microsoft do, Use the returned RRoD , disk scratching error consoles from the many, many satisfied customers LOL.......not a good move Microsoft...the smart thing to do would be to have people on standbye right by any of their products with fix-it kits, or quick replacements to save face at such a Big event .... ... ....."The JOEY has Spoken"
Should we honestly care????
No we shouldn't care but as always on this site and others you have your fanboys that want to fit in and always say negative crap even though theres nothing negative going on right now! The 360 is not a joke and in my opinion still the only next gen console that I would even bother with! This show should be good and MS is about to hopefully turn the tide and hush up you kiddies!
Never has 1 single console been so humiliated in a life time. NO no no not even an electronical product. This stuff is history in the making. I love how none of the xbox users "dont care" ... give me a break. Double standards anyone?
