News4sonygamers. There was never this much Sony bashing, and at least when there was there was enough 360 bashing. It been happening over the past few weeks, more and more blogs get approved that are pro Sony, and the sonyprotectiongroup forums posts were getting approved. This site is almost dead for 360 gamers, hell it has been for awhile for wii gamers.
The intention here is to help people if this happens to them. It happened to me a while back & I had no idea what to do & ended up shelling out for another Xbox 360 which so far has been ok. If it happens again I'll have a better idea of what to do & what to expect thanks to this article.
Thats right blood boy, this site is sony advertising
But sony fans like me are to stupid to realize how it makes us look when we have to do this stuff over, and over, and over agin. Red light, red light you suck MS!!
As I'm sure there hasn't been enough information or postings about what to do?? We didn't need it.
And the reason these articles get approved is because the admins are laughing all the way to the bank.

At 2million hits this week with advertising.. Why discourage crap information(ie flamebait) from being posted when they are getting paid! Why do you think they can give out money each month to contributers?? I'm glad someone has done a write-up on this site. I will be spreading that far and wide.
yeah i give up on this site, its just not news now, its 360 bashing
i dont see the point, i like the ps3 and wouldnt wish for it to have problems, but sony fans seem to love the thought of the 360 dieing off, i just dont get it
i dont even read the constant red ring stories because its not happened to me yet, and its kinda getting lame
if it does happen to me WHO CARES its not like my brother mother or sister have died, i will get it replaced...end of story
its just a console
bc resistance is futile. There has to be at least one Red Rings of Death article every day or it wouldn't be N4G.
Give the xbox 360 the new cpu it wouldnt happen, would it?
is a "fony fan" pretending to be a "sony fan" for affect, Cyber Sentinal didn't use the word Lemmings and has praised the PS3 lately, and now bloodmask (8 bubbl3s???) approves this RROD story?
Please bring back the good 'ol days of system wars and low bubbles for everyone. It must be the end of the world, and if not things are really, really wierd lately to say the least.
You guessed it, truth is I'm just a dumbass fan-boy, but you should look at what I say as putting down fan-boys on both sides. This site is pretty bias though, they just rejected an article with devs from E3 stating how it sucks to development on the PS3.
My 360 twice now has had to be repaired cause it scratches discs, and they extended 3 year waranty thats for the red ring of death doesnt cover this scratching issue. Had to pay $100 bucks for the repair 8 (
I shoulda just traded it in and got an elite but that would bring bad karma.
Hey Mart, aren't you getting tired of this yet?
Just Chill, then smoke a Bowl. In the end it'll be okay.
Even with failure rate the 360 still outsells the PS3 2 to 1
now if it just could outsell the ps2 2 to 1, you may have something....
HA ha Droids always resort to the PS2 when backed into a corner, have news for ya droid were in next gen now
Good figures. We need to stick to them, stay vigilant, and prove that the articles on the site are the ones that we choose by voting on them! If you see an article that says red rings of death and you feel the article is old news, and doesn't say anything new, report it. However, if an article that includes the red rings of death but says something new and people approve it, you've got a piece of information that some people may find useful. In a hard-to-balance world, some win, some lose. Heck I remember there was a time not too long at all ago when every single piece of new news coming in seemed anti-sony. Failing Sales, Is The PS3 Doomed? Why The PS3 Lost. The PS3: Dead in The Water? If you ask me, I'd say spin is spin, and it goes around and around, both ways, between Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft, you get people who are ushering their opinion into the public space. Unfortunate for us, sometimes its the same news repeated over again. But sometimes (look at Paris Hilton Stories on TV) the subject is the same, but the context is different (i.e. Paris Hilton scandal, Paris Hilton rehab).
Just buy a ps3
Getting real sick of the idiot fanboys on both sides on this site lately.
give it a rest, you just look like fools and I'm getting bored of clicking on disagree.
This article will come in handy for a few people tho. Spookily enough I had to return my 360 for RROD on friday 13th; phoned up, got connected in about 15 mins, got a ups tracking number in my email 2 mins later, ups came and collected the next morning. Now I just gotta wait for my refurb/replacement. Give me time to concentrate on finishing FFXII, even better now I can play it in 720p on the ps3.
mine just died on me this morning for the 2nd time. Symptoms (game freeze) started happening on Wednesday. Maybe I can get it back from repair and upgrade to the Elite once the price drop happens and the 65nm chips are in production.
