My wife is happy. I am not.
I don't get it.
I think it's a HD-DVD player, not sure though.
Some insider tech nerd joke?
welcome to the club. now you will talk to an indian man briefly and about a week and a half from now you will receive an empty box.
a couple weeks after that you will receive another that will probably break again immediately. Third is usually a charm though, from what I've been able to discern.
Try that. Worked for the 360 that crapped out at work. Be careful though.

What the fuck is this?
The machine has been working for a few months since we used the fix, btw.
Its a boon in disguise. Your new 360 will have a smaller chip that that is both faster and cooler. I am eagerly waiting for my red ring o death before my warranty runs out, hoping for a falcon chip.
@5 - Worked for the 360 that crapped out at work.
AT WORK!? I'm clearly in the wrong field.
My roommates had that evil red ring once, but bizarrely it went away after a restart
Oh goodness- red rings?, 360's?
Grampa gives up.
He is just going to go into the barn, put on a nice Edison phonograph and play with somered rings himself and maybe go the whole 360.

I came across an "inside source" interview in January at Digital Joystick, a Seattle P-I reader blog.
Red Ring of Death!
Ugh. The worst. Mine crapped out right after I got Assassin's Creed. Worst month ever.
This is what happens when software companies design hardware. I'm holding my breath for my Zune.
whoa, i haven't seen so many grammatical and spelling errors since my 5th grade civics essay. wtf?
RED RING OF DEATH STRIKES AGAIN!
30% FAILURE RATE WITH A 3 YEAR WARRANTY!
GO BUY A PS3!
If you get all four rings red, do coins come out the front?
@20 - no, chocolate does.
@17 - Right, because Microsoft's software is really top-notch.
This is what happens when Microsoft designs anything.
(That said, when it works, XBox 360 is far and away the best thing they've ever done.)
Stranger staffers have wives? How bourgeois!
you might consider paying more attention to your wife...
That's what you get for buying anything from Microsoft.
God hates video games and this is His way of smighting those who play them. Lets all pray for the souls of those lost to the evils of the X-Box.
He doesn't mind if you play Wii though, seeing as it's good wholesome family fun. Just make sure not to let your friends manic boyfriend throw the Wiimote through the TV. Doesn't make for a very spiritual time.
First you see The Red Ring, and then you die...
...or your 360 dies...
...don't answer the phone. It might not be tech support!
when you get your replacement, dont store it in a media center on its side without proper ventilation. Also, make damn sure the power supply is sitting the right way up, not on a carpet, and also with proper ventilation.
knowing all the overheating problems with the 360, you were kind of asking for it :P
MS was pretty cool, my warranty expired that week, but they sent me a new one, with a xbox live card for shit loads of hours.
Same thing happened to my friend. Twice.
It's never happened to me. But I think it's funny every time it happens to someone else. You'll have a new one in a month or so.
What is it with the ladies and video games?
SHUT UP WOMAN! THIS IS ZELDA TIME!
never happened to me, either. but the point was made above that if your 360 was older then you'll actually be getting a hardware upgrade.
plus, it gives you a reason to pull out your NES, dust it off, and put in some serious track time in excitebike.
I offer my deepest condolences on your loss.
As far as your wife goes, when you get it fixed, get her hooked on a multi player game. I play Rock Band and Culdcept Saga with mine.
And if it's not too late, avoid Viva Pinata or you won't be spending time with your 360 or your wife.
I agree, Viva Pinata is like crack for xBox360 users. You may think it's an innocent little game ... but it's not.
Nerds are funny.
And THAT is why I don't own a 360.
MS better straighten this shit out before the PS3 drops to a more reasonable price or else Sony's getting my money this time around.
You would not believe the faustian story of the behinds the sceens drama that lead to the Xbox 360 technical failures.

Did you know that the LaRouchies hate Videogames?
This shit was the funniest thing I have read all year. Also they think MySpace and Wikipedia are British propaganda/mind control.
