Default Was red. Went purple. Went blu. All in one day.

I post this for humor. I was red exclusively thanks to my 360 and HD DVD addon drive.

Then the prices on blu began to fall, plus Close Encounters came out, plus WB went blu. So I bought a PS3.

The very next day my 360 got the Red Ring of Death. Hahahaha. Can you believe it?

I have a feeling my 1 year old son helped it along by turning it on and shutting the cabinet door, but I can't be positive. Born to hate Microsoft I guess.

Anyway, I feel really weird being blu only. I miss red. I got the 360 coffin in the mail yesterday and I can't wait to get it back and turn a nice shade of purple.

I was purple for just a few hours. I miss it.

I assure you it is no coincidence! RROD is caused by PS3. It sends a signal to any 360s in the nearby vacinity that destroys them. It does this at random intervals so that no one will establish a link between PS3 and RROD. It's just part of Sony's strategy against the 360 to make up for the disadvantage of comming out later.

I think most people are getting a PS3.

I have read a lot of 360's get the red ring of death.

If only, then maybe we can have you banned for the over use of stupid bluray.com jokes.

You're in luck, you can now buy a Toshiba HD-A3/D3 for $129 or less, with 7 free HD DVD movies.
