Gutted switched the xbox on to get greeted by the three red lights of doom
Yeah its not a huge amount of fun, I remeber when you could just buy a console and it would live forever, I don't know anybody who had to keep sending thier N64 away. Unfortunatly If you want a high-def console it seems you must take a trade with reliability. The 360 with its red ring of death (and video issues?), and the PS3 with its yellow light of death and blu-ray laser issues.Though I am not a M$/360 supporter. I do feel sorry for all you guys getting the RROD.
Seriously, the Rate of failure is pretty bad. Even with the new chipset.
Spending a lot of money for a system and you have to worry about it burning up.
I received mine after it it RRoD'd a week earlier than the date posted online so you might be experiencing the same thing.
