Those canny devils at Microsoft like a good laugh!
god damn u microsoft tryna fool us
microsoft wont fool us next time
and expected to read how they fixed the RROD
They fixed the heat-issues in mid-2007. Why havent you been paying attention? Here's a good look at the fixes: http://www.llamma.com/xbox3... Pay attention son, you're FUD is getting old and stinky.
@2.2 No. The "elite" didnt fix the issue, the motherboard redesign did. Pay attention. You're talking out your anus.
Stop shooting crap n4user1 i got a arcade with 3 red lights sitting next to my mac that says your comment is BS
i always thought that they've been making fool of consumers with their RROD all this time. q:
Actually, Microsoft fixed the heat issues in mid-2007, and gave everyone an extended, free fix. Being an owner of 3 failed PS2s, and 2 perfectly good, never failed Xbox 360s (one upstairs, one down); Microsoft made Sony look like a fool by showing them how to properly treat their customers.
n4user... I assume that a 16% failure rate (absolute minimum and my friends don't reflects that statistic accurately) is how you want to be treated? I am not even going to argue failure rates of other consoles, but to think that is good customer satisfaction is perverse. And it's part of the reason I don't undertsnad what rabid followers it has.
I know this might be really hard for you to reach your biased mind around but just perhaps there are users out there that have fully working systems with no problems? I mean the 360 does sell a lot of games and if everyone had broken systems do you think the games would continue to sell like they do? Its like you think that if you own a 360 you should automatically be mad about it. I am another happy 360 owner with no problems and same with the 80 people on my friends list who are happy.
"I assume that a 16% failure rate (absolute minimum and my friends don't reflects that statistic accurately) is how you want to be treated? " No. Acutally, you cant even repeat your FUD correctly. That "16%" rate came from SquareTrade. There fcuking press release said "just over half" were general hardware failure. The rest of the 16% were _contacts_. So, if you phoned them for _any reason_ you were included in that 16% number. Get your shiat straight.
are the fools.
April fools, haha it's just movies. XD
HAHA awesome The Helemt would own xD
I can't believe any Xbox lasted long enough to be vintage.... All in good taste. Don't hate, but feel free to disagree.
I'm not amused. *I want the helmet*
"Flex-Plasma In-sight display". Ha! Nice.
Was the concept of the xbox 360 thought up on April 1st?
This really wasn't as funny as I thought it would be considering all the time and effort put into it. The retro Xbox did get a chuckle out of me though. That controller and the "open faceplate" reminded me of some fond memories. Most of you probably have never had to get off your butt to change a channel, huh? What a pain (no pun intended) in the ass that was!
Wow, now I kind of want a retro 360 now with a wood finish. For reference, we are now 10 posts into a 360/Microsoft comment thread, and there have been 2 off topic references to the RRoD in the supposedly-fanboy-free Gamer Zone. In fact, right now (as of this posting, that is), the Open Zone has less fanboy-slanted posts than the Gamer Zone. Welcome to N4G, baby.
As I've been saying for about a year now (and keep getting temp-banned for it), the admins of this site are OBVIOUSLY Sony fanboys, and idiots. :o
Well, RRoD does seem to go hand in hand with the 360.
Oh whatever. That's a lame excuse people use for bringing it up in EVERY STORY about the 360. You know what else I've found goes hand in hand with my 360? Fun games. But I don't see people talking about that every time the 360 or Microsoft is brought up. Yes, the RRoD sucks. Yes, it should never have been this bad of a problem. But that doesn't excuse fanboys bringing it up EVERY CHANCE they get.
N4G admins/mods don't temp-ban ppl for having an opinion.
Um...yes, they do. :o
Show me. The fact that your first comment regarding N4G admins hasn't been deleted proves my point. Now it's on you to prove yours.
Wood-grain, retro 360...ha! Totally took me back to the Atari 2600 days. And that helmet...Virtual Boy, anyone?
I actually got this email from microsoft of those. And now this as an april fools joke, lol, man i was loving that wood finish and that helmet just everything on that, damn nice.
is if they would of put something on there like the xbox360 is now the most reliable console on the market. question for yall my buddy said his 2k disc does not work anymore apparently from playin it to much on his xbox360 do you guys any idea on what happened?
because anytime anybody says anything about Microsoft they get reported
Just leave. This topic about an April fools joke and lets see you have already made a hardware comment that has already been done by like 20 people above you and now you are asking for tech help on a 2K disc. Just leave!
Nodoze, you do realize that the NEW manufactures 360, have 65 nano meter CPU's right? and 3 year warranty cover al system being updated with better performing CPU's not just replacing them with old cpu's from launch.
it helps me appreciate my 360 because you never appreciate it until it's gone - for repairs
