I got mine today too. It's a refurb dated 6/06 (the one I sent in was dated 11/05) but looks brand new. As long as it doesn't red ring again, I'm happy. I need to test it with a DVD to see if it is any quieter than my original unit.

Thank Shiva! Martin is back in action. Now he can finally work on his geometry wars score.

UPS delivered my 360 to MS yesterday, and they updated the status today to say they received it. Yay....

I just called for shit and giggles and no offense but I shoulda hung up as soon as I heard the guy's voice. Anyway, according to him I have to wait another 2 weeks and he claims it's being repaired and not replaced. Yeah...that's what they said last time.

Do they repair anything? How hard is it to check a box in and then send out a refurb? It should be a day or 2 turn around. I just don't understand why it takes so long not to fix anything.

My refurb was dated 9/06 and looks pretty good too and it is a lot quieter than my original which was dated 1/06. Still would have been nice to get a new one though.
My biggest disappointment about my refurb is my wife can't play arcade games on her profile now.

Sounds about right, i mean couple of years ago when the x360 was the only next gen. console it was the obvious choice if you wanted to play the latest console, but right now there another option and its a much grater value then the x360.

its actually a $250 difference the PS3 is $600 with a free game, and the x360 is $350 now.
alot of people cant afford $600 so they go with the $360 system, but i dont think its a good invesment,
i mean for $250 you get a system that wont brake, with a free Blu-ray player and free online and some other great features like dvd upscaling and such.

Yeah - they told me to delete, then re-download the titles to get past that glitch.

Ask to speak to a supervisor...many people have done this with success. Be firm, let them know it's unacceptable.

I'm still curious to see if that'll work for me when I upgrade to the Elite.

Good post. I am starting to feel that way myself. What sucks is I want to play Gears of War, Bioshock, and Halo 3.

Wha wha what!? That type of post has been the bane of my mod existence since the two consoles hit the street.

It does little to offer anything of value to the discussions - other than fan the fires of fanboys on the internet.

If you have a gaming PC, there are PC ports of Gears and Bioshock. There is a 99% chance that Halo 3 will go to the PC as well since Halo 1 and 2 did.

If I only had a nickel for every time someone used the "PS3 is a better investment because it has Blu-ray built in" excuse... I could retire early.

I guess the PS3 may be a better deal for the whole 5% of the population that gives a rat's ass about HD movies, but for the other 95% it isn't a good deal.

Liver & Onions - this is why you rule. Thanks for trying to nip some of this in the bud so my ignore list doesn't have to skyrocket.

Log onto your gamertag with another controller, and keep it logged in while she plays. That should solve it.

Stupid workaround that we have to use.

The only thing that did was cause me to lose my progress in Bejeweled 2 Endless mode... say sayonara to 160 levels.

I still have to be connected and logged in. Oh well. Just confirms my dislike of the whole downloadable purchases idea.

Thanks for that tip, it worked. It may be a pain but at least she will be able to play on her gamertag again.

That's just it. The guy was just reading the pre-selected bullshit that popped up on his screen. It was so obvious he didn't have a clue what to tell me about my 360 or what was being done. I'm not really blaming him because he can only tell me what his computer tells him so if they don't properly update the system then he's flying blind.

I also have a hard time believing units are actually being repaired and sent back. Maybe a small number are, but I'm sure it's a very small number.
