Default My 360 Died

Popped in NCAA 08. Played for about 20 minutes and it froze. Tried to turn the system back on only to be greeted by those wonderful red lights. After not playing on my system for 6 months, I played quite a bit in October. I can only assume its a heating problem. Gears of War 2 comes out Friday. I'm devastated.

I have an Elite manufactured in June 07.

Will be calling Microsoft and hoping that I can send it off for free.

You will get a free box that takes about a week to arrive. Ship it off and it will come back to you in about another 1 to 2 weeks.

It sucks but, it happens. Hopefully you get one back thats refrubished good.

Don't lose faith in the system due to this. Just remember its worth owning no matter how much its breaks because its just plain and simple a fun system with awesome games.

I think they're having you provide your own coffins (shipping materials) now

A console with an alleged failure rate of 30% dies on you and your devasted. Do you have a heart attack when your toaster dies?

You can supply your own coffin and they'll email you shipping info immediately or they will supply you with both which takes about an extra week to arrive.

You didn't detect the sarcasm there. I don't blame you. Gears comes out Friday and I have no 360 now. My life doesn't revolve around my 360.


Thanks for all the replies. Will be calling Microsoft today. I live in Texas and I read the repair center is in Texas.

My 360 died this weekend and I have to provide my own coffin.

Also, the shipping label they sent me in an email has a broken link - so I have to sort that out as well.

Looks like I may actually use my PS3 for something other than Blu Ray for the next few weeks...

Uh oh.

So Elites do break like this, too?

Hopefully I will have as much luck as my brother has with his XBOX360 Pro. That one is a release day console it still not broken. Not even a single crash.
