Do you have your documentation ready. The RROD issues is about to become all the more real for many Xbox customers as the warranty system moves into a new era. Gameplayer reports.
This line from the article makes me feel just fine about my Xbox 360 "but you cannot deny that is has delivered bagazillions… possibly even trizamillions… of hours of wicked entertainment to gamers across the globe." pretty much sums it up for me. Not trying to be naive to the RROD which I think is a massive blight on the console. I just like the games.
oh well..... I got many good games on my PS3 and free online so who cares..
Is that what its come down to you poor $ony fishheads is just name calling? Been a rough day huh? You keep on waiting while I go enjoy some new!
You BABOONS love RROD.....AAHAHAHAAHAAHHAHAHA
Don't forget blackbeld, there are more smart people gaming on PSN than xbl.
http://forums.xbox.com/2412... Yeah, Sony fans are making this crap up. We don't have to. We have 360 fans posting about it. This is just one example. http://forums.xbox.com/2413... Whoops, another example.
aw i feel bad.... XD
happy almost b-day for the Xbox 360 day 1 customers! good luck as u will lose ur warranty very soon. = P
lol. rrod news is hitting hard after nxe. i guess im the lucky few with no problems? i got gears 2 on my hdd and works fine. netflix is awesome, nxe is just great and problem free for me anyway. i wonder how many sony fanatics go out there way to act like they have a 360 and say nxe just messed everything up. i wouldnt be surprised if 90% of complaints are a fake.
xfags... that's a new one.. lol... i'm really gonna give you a bubbble for that.. actually made me laugh
i called in a rrod earlier this week. when i told them 3 red lights they immediately told me it was covered as a faulty hardware problem and they would be sending me a box. no mention of any warranty and the system i called in was from 2006 so we know the standard warranty is past due.
For the launch systems are over soon, this week I think.
Every 360 has a 3-year warranty specifically for the RROD issue. I wish it was a 3-year warranty on all defects, but at least that one's covered.
well other than my CD tray sticking and not closing sometimes, nothing else has gone wrong. Although what is worse than just bricking
No. I got a video output problem with my launch 360. It doesn't get RRoD. Your screen goes black but the sound still works. Many people got it but I guess no where near as major as RRoD issues so not as many people know about it. I still get emails today from an xbox thread that people post in when they have this problem. Happened to me about 7 or so months ago.
SUCKS2BU, thanks for posting such a great article! But seriously, if your drive is sticking it may go bad. If it does, just say you have RROD (even tho you will only get one red light), and they will fix it anyway. But normally, thats not covered by the three year warranty, so keep an eye on it.
I stand corrected. Thank God I haven't had that!
Im on my 4th system. At least my last one is one year old. woo hoo..bah. Anyway. On a side note. Why is it that every article gameplayer.com.au post, they have to mention the fanboys aggressively. Just post the news or article without mentioning them. I know fanboys are irritating but just avoid them. Im starting to get annoyed by this site.
looks like its going to be a sad christmas for a lot of xbox 360 owners, all this good games and nothing to play it with.. the hardest thing to endure is no more warranty's... it's a good thing i got me a ps3 so my christmas is still white or what you might say blu-xmas. you just got to love it. btw if you guys are lucky enough to not get an rrod on the nxe, then enjoy your mii's on your xbox.. nice update. what a coincidence i got the same thing on my wii. hehehe.. lol. and also to the fanboys no crying allowed, you can always buy another xbox 360 and endure another 3 years of agony. right? see you around people! be a gamer not a hater.. i'm not a hater i'm a lover because i love my ps3.
I think they have to mention them because of the beating they cop everywhere - at least they can say we told you so.
Another week,another RROD article.
If the problem continues to persist, journalists have an obligation to report it. In fact, I think that journalists are far too lenient on the RRoD issue. I'd much rather see real news like this instead of speculative "news" like "Will Blu Ray die this Holiday?" or "Will the DS kill the 360?"
I thought RROD was a myth.
...and CompUSA...and Best Buy. Then my friend Alex got it. o_o'
man why wont Micro$oft just pay a lil bit more for their console and just make it better without problems??? and would recall all the bad ones and change them, ull say they will lose lots of money? well of course they will. look at Sony, they found out about some problem with their laptops they had to recall all of them i dun remember the full details but its something like that, they had some problem with another device they also recalled it just to give the consumer the thing he paid for, not something that would brake, and brake by what, a game that was made for it, or a service given by the same company that made the console, and if your warranty is finished u would have to pay for their own mistake??? isn't that stealing?
Sony's battery problems were a health hazard, they could actually kill you. The RROD is not and therefore not required to recall because safety isn't an issue. Look at this more like the PS2 DRE issues that $ony just ignored and told anybody with the problem(like myself) to pay up to fix it. At least MS is fitting the bill for the RROD repairs.
Sweet baby Jesus Crab...you are blind as f*ck. How can you sit there and defend a faulty console like that?!
Juuken: I've never had problems and I'm not saying RROD is acceptable. What did I say that wasn't true? RROD is very real and it sucks but it is what it is and MS is at least fixing it for free. Answer that question. Are you telling me RROD will make a console explode? Because the batteries have exploded would you like video links? He asked why the 360 isn't recalled and I told him.
Crab...can you explain WHY the RROD should have happened to begin with?
and retailers pushing them hard is hard to understand.
Enjoy your red rings of fail :D
The Xbox 360 came out in 2005 in the states not 2006.... So i got a few months left on my warranty. I have not had a RROD on it yet...but I rarely play it. I am thinking of upgrading to the NXE tonight...wish me luck. My PS3 is flawless...so is my wii. All 3 flawless so far...i am just scared for the Xbox 360...
Just give it another week. My friend's 360 he got during launch that was suppose to be "un-RRODable" finnally RROD last week.
wow 360 owners will be dealing with this at the same time ps3 owners will be dealing with HOME and this. http://www.youtube.com/watc... please MS take some time and dont rush next time.
you get RROD and CANADA just gets a make-over not the full NXE = half a$$
Quick bots, report the story!
The 360 itself knows it sux, thats why they commit suicide at such a rate.
That was damn funny man
bu bu bu *snif snif* the 360 has rrod, i dont understand how it still sells better than the ps3?! bunch of babies, claiming to be number 1 but cant face the fact that the ps3 is in *gasp* last. sony couldnt take the lead by 08 like they sad they would. now we march on to 09 with the same old story "we catching up"
no kidding! Have you ever seen a bigger group of insecure crybabies in your life? Talk about severe inferiorty complex combined with some false sense of entitlement..
i dont think being in a certain "place" has anything to do with like, a malfunctioning gaming console, or the supirior gaming experience it beholds. does it? it would be good to see sony in first but even if they are not i am still enjoying their console to the fullest. wii- in first but its wack to MOST of us... 360- in second but its has sh*tty hardware MOST of the time. ps3- in third (last) but what can i say? its damn good. inferior multiplats? slightly... but it doesn't take anything from the experience. does rrod take anything from yalls gaming experience? no? not just a little? off to play some socom.....
It didn't brick my 360. But as expected I don't really care for it. I prefer the simplicity of the blades.
this system has been out how long, and still with the RROD? Is it still the soddering issue?
its on older consoles that never got rrod till now. not new consoles
"It happened worse to you guys." While summoning this link in our response as back-up. Seriously I added it to my favorites, I wonder which xbox360 fanboy I will PWN. :)
RROD is the only thing Sony fankids will have against the 360. It's the ONLY thing and it's why they hold it so dear to their heart.
With comments like that all your doing is hurting your credibility as well as The Bit Bag's. RROD was an issue for me personally as I had 2 360s break on me before the 3 year warranty. As an informed consumer I decided that purchasing another 360 was not worth the risk. Some people decided to take that risk and the RROD was and still is a very big issue, and as a gamer any system that has a high failure rate should be loathed because of it. Granted some PS3 fans use this to get under 360 fans skin, it is entirely irrelevant to the situation, and to stoop to the level of what you would call "fanboys" is petty and juvenile.
you can always post the same thing again 2 days later for the sony fanboys that missesd the first one http://www.n4g.com/industry... tordavis, very true. sonyfankids need something/anything!
Yeah... as if it doesn't suck to buy a system that dies out 16% of the time....
... I mean the whole name-calling and pretending that it isn't really that big of a problem.. while your inner soul just screams for a console that doesn't brick up on you... Seriously, you try and be neutral in these types of arguments, and then someone opens their mouth, and something stupid like THIS comes out!
My neighbor upstairs got the RROD today. He wants to take a swing at someone.
There is only three guarantee's in Life. Death, Taxes and RROD
I don't remember where I've seen it
It time to extend the warranty to 10 years for free, help the poor Xbots now before it too late M$. Or they will jump out...
I see that the mods went on a deleting spree. Nice, but this RROD will become a much bigger problem soon enough.
No worries here. I don't do online on 360. :D
RROD seems to be a bigger problem for PS3 fanboys than people who own 360's. How surprising.
I bet that the new chip sets actually cause higher failure rate than before, because it just makes great sense. My best friend Bob just called me and told his brand new 360 got blown up today, so it must be true. Just like the NXE update is magically raising Xbox´s temperature to the new records and therefore lead to RROD. Maybe it´s too much for the crapbox. PlAy B3Y0nD! RE2, LBP, KZ2 and teh Sir Ken Gutaragi FTW!!!
Jenzo in denial, what a surprise.
Jenzo, you need more bubbles. Your comment seems to be very very true. Looking at this thread there does seem to be more PS3 owners than 360 owners commenting about the problem. My internet connection has been very poor due to ongoing work for the last week. That problem is far bigger than when i lost two 360s to the red ring.
... and just what backwater planet do you originate from that actually led you to come up with that bass-ackwards logic?
It freakin seem like xbox owner love RROD they aren't even complaining wierd... They are like yess!!! I got RROD yes!!! Buoyahhh !!!! Yess I going to buy another 360. Oh it broke again I'm getting another one and the hardware sales skyrocket...wierd.
It has to suck to be a Xbot, you know... those RRODS and big ass jaggies. Xbox fans are sooooo lame and stupid. When I have a shhit, I always think about Xbox fans.
.....this thread is littered with vile little Sony trolls, euuurrggghh. This is funny just how many are in here, absolutely pathetic. I love how they are so fast to bash the opposition, poised waiting on n4g.com for some negative 360 news to post in. Like someone before me said, RROD seems to upset PS3 owners more than 360 owners. That in itself says alot. I think yet again this topic is being blown way out of proportion by the same old Sony faithful.
All I can say to all the Haters is this. If a console can break as much as the xbox 360 does and believe me I know firsthand that it does. Yet still sell more than the ps3 that has to say something. The first part is obviously the price point. We all know the 360 costs less than the Playstation 3, but what else is it ? It's the games my friends. I know all you cronies will flame me instead of actually bringing up a legit argument and that's fine. I know the type of people i'm dealing with here so I don't expect too much. The only game I have any interest in that I cannot play is Metal Gear. LBP does not interest me at all I have Mario for the Wii so i'm good in that department. Every other game worth playing you can buy for the 360 as well and to be honest half of the time they run better on the xbox. So let's review here cheaper console with same games as the more expensive console. I don't think it's hard to figure out why people keep buying 360's. RROD FOR LIFE !!!
You gotta admire these xbutts for putting up with MS. If this was Sony or any other company with a failure rate this high on any piece of electronics that I owned, I would have abandoned them long ago. I want to thank the bots for their stupidity though, if I ever want to become rich I'll just move to America, start producing a faulty, lame @ss console with last gen hardware, name it "USA" and It will sell like Chicken McNuggets on McDonalds.
