That is just ammunition for others, becuase you obviosuly have the most unreliable console ever, rumbling like a jet plane underneath your TV.

Is it your 3rd or 4th 360 by the way?

I agree with this article, but

The fact that she calls herself a gamer yet calls the main character of GTA3 Carl Johnson is either quite sad or quite funny (or both).
