What can you do Grizz?

I got down bubbled for.pointing out that boot from standby is not a cold boot :)

Even with a reasonable failure rate someone is going to be the unlucky one that gets two broken ones in a row. It's just bound to happen given the volume of units sold.

Well, if he is an Xbox gamer, I am sure he will be OK with getting six or seven systems replaced if Microsoft track record proves valid. It really sucks though and that looks bad on Microsoft end. Two systems in less than 24 hours? Both broke? That's a serious issue. My condolences

What is he putting into the side of the system at the end?

From the screen, the COD disc is inserted. the eject on the front is not working so he presses the power button then he unplugs the power from the unit.

The unit would need power to eject the disc because it is a slot loading drive. Tray loading drives offer a manual release but i dont think slot loading ones do. If im wrong...sorry.

As to the game in the system, doesnt the menu offer the ability to eject the disc? Meaning if it is a faulty eject "button" the disc could still be ejected by command from either the controller or onscreen prompt.

Sh!t. That stinks. Hope he gets another one that works. Hang in there fellow gamer.

Microsoft should just give him a free xb1.

Yeah that's nuts. I guess its possible, but you wouldn't think it unless you read about it.

Come on man I'm a Sony diehard but this is the exception not the rule. Let's stop getting into mud slinging. Two great consoles came out and there will be faulty ones it's inevitable.

still better than being caught playing a game on a PC

Blackdeath_6631763d ago

i would much rather be caught playing on pc than be caught using voice commands on any device let alone an xbox
