Hey, mine did too! :)

Wait, that means it's out of warranty now. :sad:

Zero fails since december 2005.

With two Xboxes, in December 2007 upgraded to a Elite and that's still working fine two years later. And I just got an Arcade for the bedroom.

Well, remember I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I thought I had the red rings of death? Well, I thought it maybe was just a power issue as it worked for a little while after plugging it into a different plug and my 3 red rings were solid instead of flashing.

I have been busy during the holidays and really didn't have a chance to check it out fully. Decided to power it up tonight and it foze on me several times just getting to the start-up menu. Then it would freeze before the logo even came on. finally it just decided to stop freezing and went straight to the 3 red flashing lights. Crap.

I went online and printed out my UPS form. It appears they don't provide you with a coffin anymore but luckily I had a box that was the perfect size with some packing peanuts. :(

I plan to drop it off Monday morning at my local UPS store down the street. So...this is my first one to die on me. I sold my old Halo3 version to a friend and got this Elite back in September of 2008. Anyway, what's the turnaround time running right now? I was going to have a nice long week to play video games at the end of January but I am now worried I won't have this back in time.

I just noticed that there are both avatar NBA jerseys for NBA Live 10 and NBA 2K10. The way that works is that Live 10 has generic team jerseys while 2K10 has "replica" jerseys for the team's "best" player, but without the name on the back (i.e. Lakers 24, Cleveland 23, Orlando 12). Yes, you can have Wizards 0, but no, there are sadly no handgun avatar props to complete the look. :(

I'm surprised the Rockets jersey has #3 jersey for T-Mac who is basically gone from the team. I figured #11 would be more popular.

More surprised than by the fact he's on pace to be a starter in the All-Star game based on fan voting?

#11 is basically gone from the team too.

Downloaded the Indie Game, The Impossible Game (I think that's the title...). You control a small square that has to jump over triangles and stuff.

After 5 minutes with the demo, I bought the full version (80 points).

FUCK. THIS. GAME.

I can't see how anyone could ever make it all the way through without using the flags. I love it... but I hate it. My wife hates me for playing it. I want to delete it... but... I... can't.

'I wnna be the guy' is amuch more punishing. Why did you buy it if you hate it so much??? Has anyone else tried 'Gerbil Physics'? I really like the game and its only 80 points.

I am actually not surprised by the All Star voting. He's a great player when he's healthy and he's been out so long people are hoping for a comeback. I still remember all those points he dropped on the Spurs a few years back. My co-worker left that game early and he missed out on a great comeback.

I don't think they'll get rid of Yao though.


If you like shooters pick up Raiden Fighter Aces from Newegg for $14.99. Too bad I already own it.

i recently received a used xbox 360 as a gift so i'm looking forward to the new splinter cell game that's out next month.

A question for those of you with two 360s in the household...

I want to get a second one for the bedroom so I can play a little at night without bothering others in the house. Can you have one gamertag on two systems or do you have to swap a HD back and forth between units?

Raul3 01-05-10 08:06 PM

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines
 
You can copy your gamertag to a memory unit and just use that. Or swap HDs. I'm swapping HDs right now but I think it's going to be easier to get a memory unit. I thought about the HD since I wanted to play my games from HD but the Xbox doesn't allow games to play from HD for two different consoles.

So yeah, a memory unit is the best option.

Do you guys think Advance Warfighter and Rainbow Six/Vegas are still worth getting? I could get them both for about 10$ and their review are great, but also very old. Do they hold up now?

Raul3 01-05-10 08:30 PM

re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines
 
I never was a fan of those games, but they had great reviews and a big following at their time.

I guess if you have played any of the series and liked them you won't get disappointed with these games. On the other hand $10 for both of them sounds good.

I'm unhappy with the streaming functionality of the xbox and divx movies. I have tried Play On and looked at TVersity, wouldn't it just be easier to plug my 500GB USB hard drive into the 360? Can it be done? Can a 360 play divx natively?

As an unnamed video game forum moderator told me to "google" it, I could only come up with references to 2006 and the answers were very uncertain.

The 360 does play divx, but you have to download a free media add on from the Xbox Marketplace.
