All you guys with the dead Xbox 360

This might be something worth considering. Scroll up a little once you click the link. I have decided to get one when they come out. I will sell my still working but heavily flawed glitchbox 3shitsty and put the money towards one of these units. Just as with the PS2 shrink, it's likely all the flaws will be revised and edited out lol.

I sure hope they have quieted the thing down. My 360 fan is load as hell. When I first heard the PS3 it was very embarrassing.

If its that slim it would have to be. But that's just an artists rendering. But yeah i have a PC case with 5 120mm fans, and its nowhere near as loud as the xbox. The xbox sounds like a freaking turbine engine. Its like if you have to make the thing that loud, you might want to consider a different design. But not microsoft.

So, not really directed at you. But WTF, people have some whiney ass problems with their XB360 that I just don't understand cause I've not seen a single one of them.

Directed at you - the ONLY time I hear that loud noise is at boot up. Also, I'll hear it if there is a vibration due to me having it set down wrong or the media inside is off a little. If those two things are okay I can never hear it at all.

Blasphemy. It's unpossible for a Xbox 360 to break. They are the God of gaming consoles. You wouldn't have this problem if you had bought an Xbox 36... errrrr.

I am pretty sure i have that old one, the one before Micro$oft did their little heatsink/cooler revision. I bought it in early 06 which should have been before that time. So mine sounds that way the whole time i am using it. Only when playing a game, though. But yeah the loud sound that you probly hear when you fire yours up, i hear that for the duration of the time that i am playing a game lol. I just turn my TV up a little louder, but really it's something they should have thought out better.

Since i am naming off bugs, i will also say that half of the time, the disc tray sticks shut and i have to wiggle the xbox to get it to open. Also, no matter what i will get a disc read error the first time i fire up the box for the day. I will play for like 10 min, then the error. Then, no problem. This occurs with brand new discs.

It almost seems like the console makers have to learn the hard way that being cheap doesn't pay. The PS2 had all kinds of problems, and Sony ended up paying through the nose. PS3, not so bad.

Well, if the majority of the XB360s out there have all these problems I hope MS loses the lawsuits coming up on them.

I'm just gonna be grateful that maybe I got lucky on mine.

They have set up a billion dollar fund for all the warranty work they are having to do, so that means that they know that that money is a loss. I bet they are not liking that. You would think that their next console would be better, but you know microsoft is slow to learn...

I've never had one single problem out of my 360...had it over a year too.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

When you see this red ring come to the power button instead of just that one green bar, let us know.
