Well, played about two hours on my 360 yesterday and all was fine.  Was kicking butt in Kameo.  Went to start it up this morning and all I get is a flashing red circle around the power button.  Glad I got the two year coverage from MS.

Flashing Red is overheating I think. Shouldn't be hot if it was off all night....odd

Well from what I can tell the red light can indicate many things, depending on wether 1.2.3 or 4 light up, if it "spins" or just blinks.  Mine is blinking all 4 simultaneously.  MS is sending me a prepaid box to send it back for repair.

I have a boyfriend of a friend who had just gotten one recently, and it died on him the other day.  He was pretty pissed :/

Well to be honest, it doesn't really bother me.  I understand the risks of being a day one adopter of a new system.  I went through 3 PS2's.  I love the system and the games and MS is taking care of it.  There is enough to life that I can handle being without it for 10-14 days.

Mine is going off to repair this week.

The system only turns on 8 out of 10 times.. it just sits there on a black screen. Its frustrating.

Uhh....     :shock:

You guys are getting me nervous!   I bought from Walmart and I didn't open the system until after the 10 days from purchase window and so I couldn't get the M$ replacement plan.  frown

I'm going to be SO screwed if something happens to it past the 3 month warranty....

I would still fill out the paperwork and send it in.  Call MS if you are worried, just explain that it was a gift and you just opened it.

Overheating. Same thing happened ot my friend. It probably overheated when you were playing it the night before and screwed itself. Send it back. Good luck man.

I really don't think it is overheating.  Well ventilated for both the power brick and system would be an understatement.  One way or the other it is on it's way to MS, but the tech on the phone ruled out overheating due to the way the lights were flashing.

Technically, the first xbox was indeed bulletproof...

Due to its size and weight, the Xbox console has been the butt of many jokes in the gaming community. An incident that occurred last Friday will probably prove to only stir a few more jokes from the minds of gamers and industry followers.

On Friday November 28th, police were called to investigate a shooting that took place in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. When police arrived on the scene, they found an unlikely victim had been shot, an Xbox.

A Maryland newspaper, The Baltimore Sun, reported that a 34-year-old man had become so angry at his roommate for playing the Xbox at high volumes that he shot the Xbox with a 9mm pistol.

According to the report, in a fit or rage, the man stormed from his bedroom at 2:00 AM with the 9mm pistol while his roommate was playing the Xbox. The man took aim at the console and took fire. Amazingly, because of the console's thick plastic, the bullet was deflected, but the console was disabled from the shot.

The man was arrested and booked on two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of destruction of property. How's that for quality!

Well, MS sent me a new 360.  Funny thing is the told me to keep my hard drive when I sent it back to them.  The new one they sent me has a hard drive.  Guess I have a spare now heh.

Yeah I found it odd, although the box they sent was tight, would have been no room for an HDD.  Nicest part is I didn't lose any of my saves.

As an aside, given that the FF 11 beta is almost 6gigs of install.. I think I will dedicate one HDD to that game, then use my main HDD for everything else.
