If you've recently had your 360 repaired, chances are it could come back to you with a brand new additional heatsink installed. Check out this little guide on how to tell if your console has this new heatsink without voiding your warranty.
Who cares, it'll still end up crapping out two weeks later no matter which one you get. hahahaha
@doucheNAME...lol, you crack me up bro. Talk about thin skin..hahaha
get a liffffe
Gotta love the bubbles idea.
If it's a PS3, you paid too much!!!!!!!!! LOL
I just wanted to congratulate you Bill, you have one bubble and are ignored by 40 people! That's amazing! You must be the king of useless, rude and fanboy comments.
Back to the article...It's sad to me that MS has had so many issues with the 360. I think it has really hurt the reputation of what is otherwise a fantastic machine. I wish they had spent a little more time refining it before they released it. At least they seem to be getting the problems under control now.
They should have put these heatsinks in all Xbox 360's from the beginning.
when repairing your 360 becomes the norm. The xbots are actually used to the idea that their 360 will break and you will have to get it repaired. What a pathetic piece of machine. MS should eb ashamed of itself.
Look at PS3, it has a totally new processor, neevr been out before, and look how its purring along with no problems. Look at the new Blu-Ray technology, its just purring along with no problems. The 360 cant even get old technology right.
You xbot zombies are suckers. Just plain suckers.
My 360 purrs as well, and is very reliable. I don't worry at all that it will break. It runs at a relatively cool temperature (much cooler than your PS3 I'm sure) and the games run very well on it too.
What's sad is that there are apparently a few people left who think that the PS3 is going to be the best just because Sony has had the most popular consoles the last two generations. PS3 has become a system of empty promises. Notice how games were downgraded between E3's. There are so many great next gen games on the 360 that people who are waiting for a PS3 missed out on, and will continue to miss out on.
A video game system is only as good as its games. PS3 fans say that it's better because they believe that the PS3 is more powerful. It's funny how last gen when the Xbox was way more powerful and included a hard drive, Sony fans said that the PS2 was better because it had more and better games.
Fast forward a few years, and the 360 does everything the PS3 can do (with the exception of BluRay), not to mention, the 360 has a FAR superior game library, and it looks to stay that way for the foreseeable future. Plus if we want a next gen DVD player, we have the OPTION of upgrading and not being forced to pay for one just to play next gen games. It is not 360 owners who are the suckers.
the PS3 has no problems?... well ok that obviously means you dont follow the news, the PS3 has had problems aswell. especially with the BluRay player inside.
how to tell you if you buying a crappy system..bend over 360 degree and let microsoft rape u in the butt constantly..
Both Jin and you obviously don't like the 360 or even own one. You just troll for messages like these and then post your ridiculous, rude, crude comments.. Looking at both of your post histories you say more offensive and flamebait comments then actually contribute to this site. Why bother? Doesn't it get old? Are you really that bitter over the 360?
That had me rolling!! I think we in a great Next Gen Gaming universe where all consoles are doing their thing. Some have issue and that is what happens when you rush a product out and Microsoft knows that. They wanted the jump on Sony, but they did it at a price. The performance of the 360 for delivering good gaming and graphics has shown itself, as it will with the PS3 and has already done. If Microsoft can fix their issues with this console, we all can have another reliable system without the worry of breaking down.
Now that the Xbox360 hardware issue has been addressed and resolved, I guess that doesn't leave my legions of faithful fanboys much ammo against the Xbox 360... Which is exactly why I quit!!
wow how did this turn into a flame war. The bottom line is 360 hardware is crappy mine hasnt failed but am pretty sure 1 day it will because pretty much every1 i knw has had theirs fail. Glad to know msoft is fixing the problem too and not jst shruggin it off or blaming it on the consumer
Why didnt they add this from the beginning? It could have saved a lot of money and bad publicity.
Thats what I'm thinking.
I want a 360 but im not getting one till the new heatsink is standard or smaller chips.
For some strange reason MS won't do either.
As for Cunt Boy, he can only get an boner, if he post on the 360 stories. That way he can jizz all over the PS3, and lick it back.
are you a girl? coz theres no way a guy would get into so much detail over something so stupid
or they could just be a 12 year old who just barely learned what those words are....
I just looked and mine has it!
Just curious...how recently was yours repaired?
Edit: So they've been doing this for a while now...thanks for the response!
Jin, I can smell your hatred for the 360 from here. Why do ou hate the 360 so much. It's an object meant to provide you with entertainment. All it ever wants to do is relieve some stress from your day. I just don't get your hate. While I think the ps3 isn't worthy my money as of yet, I will get one eventually and buy all of the old games I missed. You guys are so closed minded. It's a console. They is no excuse for not picking up a console 4 years into it's life and playing all the amazing games you missed. Unless, you're not really a gamer and you're just an insecure homo that can't get it up, so your console become an extention of your really small d*ck.
A bubble for you logical one.
WOW talking about bad timing my flashlight is out of batteries T.T , I wonder if mine has it since it came back like a 3 weeks ago :/
Rather than look for this little copper bubble, if you DO NOT have the extra cooling / heat sink , all you will see is the one BIG HEAT SINK as shown in the diagram on this article.
Here is the inside WITHOUT the heat sink:
Notice how behind the last 3 capacitors rather than seing a heat sink you see another little group of 3 capacitors in almost a triangular format. That is a DEAD giveaway ...
So, if you look in and DO NOT see see a small heat sink just on the other side of the USB port (when looking in from the left side) but instead, just the ONE BIG ONE .. then you DON'T have it.
So if you missed it ...
Very obvious when you shine that light in the right side of your 360
My console was sent in and came back to me April 25th and NO HEAT SINK
Oh well, hope I don't need to send it in ever again anyway. But I will be grabbing one of these when they hit Canada
Much better than that POS, power drawing, 360 killing Nyko cooler I had. Baaaahhhhhhhhhhh
