3NF discusses 5 reasons why the RROD has actually benefited the xbox 360.
Oh Hello There. Nice, to see you. Im sorry I had to expand your box to view this shytty comment because you had 1 bubble :-( lolololololo
And you have 3. You fail just like your console.
They should start putting it on the packaging.
imagine the situation, you unbox your Xbox, you plug it in, you turn it on, and then... ...RedRing! imagine it happening on christmas day!
@ "No FanS Land" It happend to my cousin 2 years ago. His dad bought him a 360 for Christmas and minutes after turning it on BAMM RROD! He was only 13 at the time so he and his father didnt really know what was going on. So they sent it in to MSFT and got it repaired. Theyve never had another issue since. But on Christmas man that must of suked!
@ I heart sony: Man I offer my sympathies to your cousin, but two years ago this means it was the first motherboeard model (falcon I think), it's a bit more "normal" in that case.
ya xmas day would suck, but my friends elite rrod out of the box, he returned and got a new one which luckily lasted less than a month before rroding on another elite, he returned that one since it was from Blockbuster and they didn't have another one, so he had to wait months for them to get an elite, after like 3 months of waiting they gave him his money back cause they couldn't confirm when they would get one and well, cmon, if after 3 months of not getting an console to sell, ur prob not gonna get one, luckily he got one from walmart and its working fine thankfully...sad it was his first 360, now its his 3rd...
Late last year one of my friends got RRoD a few hours after it being out of the box. All of his friends, me included, put money in to get him one. This was for his birthday, so it was pretty sad :< and it took him 2 weeks to get another one. We also got one for another friend which had some random error which ruined his party x_x (because we were going to do some 8-player Halo 3 system link action). He went through support and fixed it though
Weak attempt at humour!
I'd hope so because, but I find none of that sh\t funny.
Its a joke. I dont find it funny either...but its true, at least its not a blog.
A list of jokes about an unfunny issue and they aren't very funny....
almost like a siege mentality. The list is a joke.
OMGZ!! teh conspericy
Pretty funny. 360 one ups PS 3 again - we have RROD what do you have ? ☺
We have MGS. You lose. Hahaha
Ps 3 is not even powerfull enough to cook itself from inside out - RROD is the ultimate proof that 360 is WAY more poverfull then ps 3. ☺ Only the fastets most expensive gaming rigs need water cooling..... and so does the 360 !!! 360 > PS3 ☺
actually that was pretty funny martini
I plan on buying a 360 so i can cook my food without leaving the room so i don't have to pause MGS when i'm hungry. Btw bubbles for you for making me laugh. :D
do any of u have nightmare of sony failing and ps3 loosing the console war?i have occasionally and ive awoke sweating and hyperventitlating. share your nightmares people...
I'm buying a 360 to heat my room up.
are we going back to 2005? with all the way way back console jokes?? Well I bought a 360 to play the best games. I bought a PS3 to grill my burgers. You know it works even better than a Foreman even though it looks just like it. wakka wakka
Microsoft for president!
"Your above the rest remember, grab your tool box and fix it yourself." - It's "you're".Ruined all joke credibility and hope that it's not just another lame article trying "to funnay".
actually, he's right it is "your" "you're" is "you are" he said "grab your tool box and fix it yourself" it doesnt make sense if he said "grab you are tool box and fix it yourself" now don't u feel stupid(btw i didn't disagree with you)
"You are above the rest." He was right & you were wrong.
There are about 100 more errors in that blog besides the "your" thing.
i was thinking about the second your in that sentence lol sorry, i was wrong about what you were saying
that has to be the most stupidest thing ever...and i mean seriously, who will be happy during the RRoD process? i havent met one happy camper yet...now i bet Jason 360 is going to post some comments actually congratulating the article...good luck on that
"Dave lived happily ever after. Then microsoft returned his console." Haha, so his life was ruined again when he got it back xD Nr1 was just hillarious.!
Like it or not the main benefit of the RROD has been to move more 360s off the shelves. You know perfectly well that out of the millions sold at least 100,000-300,000 of those were people that bought new ones and I believe if you'll check you'll find that even people who got free replacement consoles due to store warranty are counted as 'sold'. If all 360s that were sold still worked it would probably cut in to total 360 sales by at least a million units.
When my first console got the rrod it was before MS started to give the warranty. At the time i did`t know anything bout the rrod so i thought "things brake" so i just went out and bought a new one throwing the old one away. When the 2nd console got the rrod, i went to my local hardware shop and bought a new one again, then put the broken one in the box and took bk the next day saying i want a refund. It worked. Only on my 3d rrod i decided to send it to MS. They send it bk to me but now is scratching my games. It destroyed 7 of my games and at £40 each do the math. So my experience with the x360 has been worst than a nightmare. I have stopped using it now, i just can`t afford it. Good games, good online but i just can`t take it anymore. So screw you MS, I`M DONE WITH YOU!!!
