i got it twice last year. thats right twice. i got it once, took the month to get it back, and the next week it did it again. i didnt really play it that much either. only game i really played was halo for an hour or two a night. regardless, after the second rrod, I made the decision to get it fixed again, but instead of supporting microsoft any further, i traded in the system + all my games + the 2 free games i got from them + all controllers and got mgs4 bundled ps3 along with some 50 dollars in store credit. I am pretty satisfied with my decision to go along with what is clearly the superior system.
My thing was this: I paid 400 bucks for an xbox for one purpose, to play games whenever i wanted to on my xbox. when that paid privilege was broken, I quickly developed contempt for microsoft, even their reconciliation offers failed to quell my anger. Anyways, Ill prob never buy an xbox again to be honest. am i too hasty/unforgiving? probably. but I am a fundamentalist at heart, and when you sell me a 400 dollar system claiming its the best thing on the market and that bitch breaks twice, thats all it takes for me to call you a fucktard.
ps. this was by no means a troll post. just a detailing of my terrible experience with 360.
