Rosa Golijan: Nic H tells us that this is how his Xbox was returned after being sent to Nurse Microsoft. If that's really true, then it looks like Microsoft is getting brutal on Xboxes that dare get an RRoD.
It's probably mishandling during shipment. Microsoft don't want to increase their already terrible reputation even more with this.
What can Brown do for you?
Yes looks like that but I don't think MS will do anything but simply put in for insurance claim then wait for that to come through.
Look at the pic of the box. The box was crushed obviously mishandled. I would be pissed when I got my xbox back.
Now if only the bots would do the same and buy a ps3
Now I know what was in the box at the beginning of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
If you look at picture 7, you can see the box in the background, which looks like it was crushed; so it probably was because of shipping. This article is misleading and damaging to Microsoft's reputation for no good reason.
@Government Cheese That was a good one. haha
and everything to do with the shipper. Obviously it was crushed, most likely during shipping. I remember going into a small Purolator office about a year and a half ago in Edmonton, AB Canada. I brought in my coffin and the guy said "Ah! Another Xbox." He said their little corner office alone usually handled 20-30 360's a week. He added mine on top of a pile of ten identical 360 coffins, all waiting to go out that night. It would have made me laugh it if it weren't kinda sad. Thankfully that was the last time I had to go in. I haven't had any issues with my most recent replacement for the year and a half since I've had it, even though I was skeptical when they shipped me a console older than the unit it replaced. Looking forward to trying out Halo ODST over the Christmas break between semesters.
Wow and they keep creating, bringing RROD and stuff like this to N4G... i wonder what they are going to create and bring(post) next as soon they find out that REACH in-game looks better than the in-game video they show us at the VGA's. I CANT WAIT
This just goes to show that Microsoft really doesn't know how to fix anything.
lol at least there's a 1 free month of LIVE taped to it. . . . HAPPY HOLIDAYS 1st person to PM I'll hook up with a 48hr trial card!! HOHOHO!!
I got a 48 hour code in my hands. I'm going to wait for a desperate time to use it (If gold expires right when Halo Reach beta starts or something).
sorry we beat the sh*t out of your 360 but hay one mouth free of live
@ deshon09 since when did MS start handing out a mouth for free? Times must be getting rough.
All RROD repairs get a month of Live to make up for the time you lost while your box was away.
Don't wait too long baseball. They expire.
oops just pack it up and send it anyway just like rrod
thats microsoft for you......come to sony where you get treated right..and you wont have to go through things like this cause the ps3 does not die every 2 months
xbox360 king of RRoD loooooooooool
This is UPS fault, not Microsoft.
In picture 7 you can clearly see the bashed up box. This is a pretty stupid article. Shipping damage.
The thing is, you shouldn't have to be bothered to send these things in the first place, if MS would just get off thier lazy asses and redesign the console and get this stupid issue fixed in the first place. The root of the problem come from terrible console reliability issues.
They did...it's called Jasper. But there are still a lot of older 360s out there. BTW, anyone who believes this story is 100% legit is an idiot. Just sayin'...
UPS steals gaming consoles. I used to work for one in a bigger city, they steal games and other things like crazy then say they never received any items like that.
oh and we expect 15 bucks for the card lol or we will do to you what we did to your 360
Its gonna come back bricked either way.
Isn't that how they all look?
a new service they have yes , its fascinating its called smash my system where they take ur console , return it back to u after 2 weeks completely smashed up , and then they say FIX it xD
So that is what happens when you send your console to M$ tech support? Woah, they beat the flopbox to make it work again!!
I think someone wants him to have a new Xbox 360 Elite MW2 special edition! Could that be Microsoft,UPS,or maybe even himself???
Nurse Microsoft is kinky! Likes to beat her patients back into health.
It's either shipping damage or the guy did it himself. lets be honest, any1 could do something like this and then tell a gaming site some story. As if ms (or any other company) would smash up someones replacement and send it back to them
Nobody ever received a broken package in the mail before? (not that I actually believe this one was broken in the mail)
The thing is this person probably is faking this beat up a console get a new console. Either that or UPS decided to play Xbox hockey with forklifts
Sure, he probably beat his own console up. But I don't blame him Stupid article
You get what you pay for.
...and you actually named yourself troll police. Ironic.
the pot calling the kettle black
The only reason they put these worthless articles on here is to keep you Sony Fanboys drinking the kool-aid. Cheers.
There's no kool aid left all the bots drank it. Hence all the "OMG Halo Reach 1 minute trailer has better graphics than Killzone 2" comments.
wow thats bad i work in a place where we repair xboxes, full reflow and ball solder setup very costly, we get lots of stuff shipped in and can have problems with things like lost screws (get more out of screw boxes) but nothing like that someone did that delibvertly
Microsoft stay with software (vista lols) your not cut of for hardware.
they haven't fixed this yet? a person in my college class said he bought a new 360 a few days ago and its got the RRoD. he said had to buy a new one, because the one he was playing with almost caught on fire. he said he's been though 7 360s so far.
Well your friend better buy a PS3 before he burns down the college and the dorms.
See the bots will never learn to just buy a PS3 other wise this could happen to your xbot by Microshit.
Finlly Microsoft is doing something right just destroy the 360 and you'll have no more problems HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA why didn't Microsoft think of this a long long time ago.
Looks better than the FatStation
Freakin' UPS Sony fanboys!!!
