Quote:
Got my Xbox 360 from Pepsi/Mountain Dew today, but of course they shipped a game I didn't ask for, but the game I did ask for with my win will come in 14 days....

Ah, I play Kameo (interesting game) for about 30 minutes and the 360 crashes!!! Ugh.... Power adaptor goes from solid green to a flashing orange.... What next? Well, shoot off an email to MS, get one back not too long ago, find out that the flashing orange means that xbox has overheated!

Overheated??? Come on! Well, the quick fix was to cool down the system and then play it... Since then, I've been able to play, actually watching Stealth right now, but the catch? My window has to be open and it is 40 degrees out!!!!!

Either MS has to come up with a fix to this or I'm going to be pissed!

I was about to make a thread about a crash. My friends X360 is a goner! something happened while playing PD0 and the damn thing just flashed to an error screen and then completely shut off, the PSU light isn't even on. He contacted a support line and they said to follow warrenty instructions. Oh boy, with the up coming "shortages" none of this can be good for MS.

Just curious has anyone here experienced any lockups? if so how did it happen?


Quote:
I think mine is going to crash, when playing Kameo, the sound becomes all glitched, like you'll hear a sound effect of me shooting a boulder and it will keep repeating itself over and over and over, until I switch areas or just stops. it's the worst when you follow the shadow trolls and those bats make the squeek it keeps repeating also glitching the sound. It also stutters a lot in the cut scene when you first fall into the well. Anyone else get this?
Quote:
I heard a nasty rumor that the failure rate is quite high, far higher then any other console to date.
I put no faith in it till I saw this thread, and the muliple reports.


Already glitchy and overheating problems?


I love xbox and I will get one, when everyone who is bitching about theirs at launch gets these problems fixed.

Despite the problems- I'm still going to get one

the xbox 360 is just like a computer- since it has the hard drive etc...

I've got computer repairing skills- shouldn't be hard to fix-

No matter what- there will never be a perfect system- no matter what people want to believe.

I never buy a system at launch.I like to wait a few months to see which kinds of games are gonna be comming out for it 1st. And see how they hold up. I never liked Xbox 1 because I didnt like its games so I bought a gamecube instead, I still love windwaker and all that shit. And the system was very solid.

I like all systems- except for the DS- that system is just lame.

I don't feel like moving shit around with an electronic pen- that was and still is just a stupid idea.

I know, thats the reason I hated palm pilots. What a waste of time.

PSP has no fuckin games though... luckily my girlfriend (whom doesnt use her psp for games anyway) likes it for movies in car trips. the DS has castlevania and shit though. I wish I had it. Ah well I will stick to my Gameboy Advance.

Bet if you attempt to fix it you'll automatically void any and all warranty's.

Im gonna wait until January I think to make a purchase on a new system. My brother and I are getting an apartment together and with his carpentry skills and my electrical skills we are going to build a HUUUUGE entertainment center and devote then entire living room to it. We got a giant widescreen tv, all our old systems, a mountain of dvds, music cds, everything. And when we ar emoved in and building it in december and its done I will go out and buy the newest system as the crown jewel. mwahahaha

Then, when you all decide to get separate places you can have a death match for the entertainment center. Film it.
