Refunds for Xbox Repairs, Plus Warranty Extension

All Xboxen purchased prior to January 1st, 2006 are getting a free one-year warranty extension, but that's not all. Anyone who paid to have one of the older units repaired will be refunded their $140 via a fat check from Microsoft.

MS knows they are going to be profitable and is looking out for thier gamers. Futre must look bright then. With all the people that got rid of thier boxes when they didn't have to. Patience is Key Gamers..

I was not expecting this..another sweet surprise if this holds up.

Believe it or not, this is all about timing!

There will be broken PS3's! Blu-Ray has not been tested on the mass market. Its new and un-perfected technology.

Will Sony fix all of the malfunctioning PS3's for free? They better start thinking about it! Or at least give out a 1 year warranty to start!

It really is amazing as to what is going on here! I have never seen a console battle so heated in all my years of gaming.

I got a 1 year warranty from M$ when I purchased my 360 at launch. I got a letter in the mail yesterday stating that my warranty is good through feb 08.

That fifty bucks I paid back last November now carries through to 2008? That makes me happy.

It's a shame that 360's were (are?) going bad, but it's nice to see MS taking care of their customers. I'd like to know what the problem has been, though.

took them time, but nice to see them own up to it.

I still only know 1 person that the 3 red lights happened to, out of 30+ folks I know who have one.
