I got a new 360 a week ago and its already rroded . Fuck this I am getting a ps3
towel trick it works atleast for a while
don't get the PS3. Waste of money. You are covered so get it repaired. Do what I did I opened it up and fixed mine. I also modded mine so I just download and burn.
haha I heard about that. I will buy as PS3 tomorrow that was my third xbox that got rrod there is no way I am getting another one lol.
My Xbox had a RROD when I had a cooling fan hooked up on the back of it.. as soon as I took that off it worked fine. I notice it also does it when those little holes on top are blocked by like a game case.
Stick with the classics my xbox is three years old(I think) still running fine. Or my n64,I don't even know how old this thing is but its still the sh!t!
I had that happened twice (2 different xboxes). Sent it back to M$ and it took around 1 1/2 weeks to get a refurbished one. The towel trick is a pain in the ass
wtf is the towel trick?
PS3 is the way to go FTW! Case closed end of discussion!
Want my aff link for a fix ebook? j/k
Dude send it back to microsoft - warranty...
Get a sega or nintendo 64. Still got both of mine and still both work. Spellcaster ftw on sega and 1080 snowboarding on 64.
Even my old classic PS1 has hit the dust now, the laser is f'd. Bring back cartridges i say!
PS3 seems like it would be fun as all get out. That Little Big Planet looks so epic.. That and the original Metal Gear Solid (PSX) was THE best game I've ever played (right next to Ocarina of Time.) So I could imagine the PS3's MSG would be pretty interesting...
MS is warrantying the rrod. I just bought one of CL for $40 and got it fixed for free.

Funny you mention your XBox... I just sent mine in although I did not have the 3Red rings I had a lower right single red ring and an E74 error. This was covered by Microsoft and I shipped and received my unit in a total of 9 business days which I was happy with. Works great now... for now. If it wasnt so much better than the PS3 I would have sold it
I had the RROD for about 2 and 2.
My son had pulled the plug when it was on, on a rebbot, the red ring occured.
I unplugged it again for about 30 min's and the RROD was gone.
Nothing beats the 360 -
(when it runs...)
Here is a permanent fix...
if you are out of warranty, there are a number of guides available online on how to fix the issue. additionally, the parts needed to fix the dreaded x-clamps are available on ebay pretty cheap. its basically some screws and washers.
I also found people on my local CL to do it CHEAP, and flash my DVD drive while they had it apart. i'm sure there are guys on here that do it as well.
The Scarlet Pimp: Why does the guy in the y0utub3 video look like your avatar? They both kinda freak me out.
