Tyler Ciervo PS3 will solve your problems :]

I have a 360 right now but I hate it so much. Im trying to get rid of it so I can grab a PS3 before the new NFS comes out.

SFshredder I haven't played any video games on my Xbox 360 in a while. I hope it doesn't get the 3 red rings.

Crazy Max PS3 has it's fair share or problems too, namely with the laser, and it's quite common too. The problem is, manufacturer's are rushing to get products out as soon as possible, to save on cost, and maximize profit. Missing the Christmas season is just not acceptable; the 4th quarter is where the moeny is to be made in console sales. To protract development another 6-8 months to get things dialed, would result in millions of potential revenue lost, and would add tens of thousands of dollars, if not, more in cost, due to protracting development.

With the 360, it helped initiate something even bigger: the next generation of Xbox Live. I believe Xbox Live has earned over $1 billion in revenue since its inception, and it's contiinually growing. A new subscriber every second, and it's the largest distrubution network of entertainment in the world.

Sure, MS lost money on the consoles, but the money they made on Live made more than up for it. MS is laughing to the bank. What's another console replacement, when every major network wants to get involved with your service?

ha i definatly like this solution

my ps2 is about 8years old and needs to warm up for about 45mins before it can read a disc,
i think there are about 2 games i can play to warm it up...the rest wont read.

kind of a laugh kind of a pain in the ass, my first ps2 had 2 get replaced cause of some fault with it...but that was free so i aint complaining

Weezy The hard drive on the 360 is de-tatchable. I'm pretty sure they'll send your hard drive back on a new model. Check first though by calling/emailing them or just take off the hard drive before you send it.

Crazy Max What about the data on the 360? Do they transfer it over, or do you lose all of your achievements, saves, downloaded content, etc?

The guy gave me an RA number and said the pre-paid shipping box should be here in 3to5 business days... Just thought some would like to know this....


LUCKY! I didnt get the three rings of death on mine My lense stoped working. So I emailed/called Microsoft and they gave me some bull story about me not buying the apropiate coverage for it. So now I have a nice $400 doorstop <----Microsoft
