13441  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft extends Xbox 360 warranty to 1 year. on: December 22, 2006, 05:03:28 PM

Quote from: Arkon on December 22, 2006, 04:45:18 PM



Looking at my original paperwork... it states...


To Arkon or anyone else: Does it say how to cancel the warranty? I'm wondering if I do indeed have to write a letter...I mean it's 2006 for pete's sake.
13442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft extends Xbox 360 warranty to 1 year. on: December 22, 2006, 04:57:31 PM
He said that the 2 yr extension is solely from the purchase date of the warranty...NOT from console date of purchase.

No good.

To cancel the warranty you must:

Write a letter to:

XBOX 360 Service Contract Dept
Microsoft Corporation
One Microsoft Way
Redmond WA 98052-9953

Including: Name, Address, 360 Serial Number, Warranty Order Number, telephone and email address.

They will isssue a refund.

My letter is going out today!

Edit: Oh and for what it's worth, Carl in phone support was very helpful, polite and handled the call well.
13443  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft extends Xbox 360 warranty to 1 year. on: December 22, 2006, 04:49:10 PM
 They said they wouldn't extend it, they they only support the extended service warranty that I Paid for.


I said. Give me your supervisor.

He immediately said we won't refund the costs.

I said in the literature sent to me by your company it says satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.

He said. "It does? hold please."

13444  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft extends Xbox 360 warranty to 1 year. on: December 22, 2006, 04:42:19 PM
Says on the paper that there's a money back guarantee on the extended if not 100% satisfied.  Might have to play that card.

Still on hold.

They're telling me, on the phone right now, that they will not add the time of the extended warranty I've paid for onto the 1 year MFW.  I'm holding for a supervisor to demand my money back or get it added to the time.

Just to make sure I'm on the right page, your extended warranty is through Microsoft, not through the place you bought it, yes?

Yep.  I'm hoping it's a language barrier thing.  Still on hold.

Welp, Merry Christmas!

I plan to try to get in on some GoW MP tonight.  Might be slim pickings if you all are traveling.  I'm gonna try to scale back my online time with this game as I'm beginning to get a little haggard due to lack of sleep.

I'll be playing some Elite Beat Agents (what a great time this game is).

Also, might continue my adventures in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrows.

Possibly some Dead Rising.

Lastly, I'm hoping Battle for Middle Earth II arrives so that I can fire that up.

Merry Christmas!

Wow... that's quite a bold statement.  The entire Xtreme series was terrible, but Paintbrawl sticks in my mind as the only game I've seen score a 5% (this was in PC Gamer).

Which means it got a 2 in every other mag. ZING!

I'm 6' and 190. I have no problem fitting in a coach seat. 

If he wins this suit it will set a bad precedent.  Being fat, except in extremely rare cases, is not a disease nor should those who are grossly obese be given a free pass.


Hmm I would say being fat in many cases is a disease of a dis-order a cognitive one, just as much as drug addicts and those with compulsive disorders are classified as such. So I would say I would really disgree with you or say your  thinking is really setting up a huge double standard based on someones looks.

Very good point that I completely ignored in my post. If it is actually food addiction, then it can be a disease possibly.  However, not all addictions should be classified as diseases.

This has the chance to Michael Bay's best movie. Of course, being Michael Bay's best movie only means that it will suck less than all his others.  Tongue

You don't like The Rock?

Actually, The Rock is the one Michael Bay movie I can tolerate, but that's probably due to Sean Connery. The rest are gag-inducingly bad.

The Rock is one of the best action movies of the 90s. So many quotables.

I heard some guys talking about this in player matches last night.

Supposed to have some new maps and a patch.  No details that I can find and I didn't see a link on the main GT page.

I hope they nerf grenade tagging a bit (if I'm using nerf right) so that you can't do it from 10 feet away or that you can knock it off you some how.

I also hope they subtract the ability to be immune to damage during chainsawing.

There are a couple of glitches too that I hope they fix.

Anyone have the scoop?

It doesn't help that these days you can barely fit a normal sized person in a coach airline seat, let alone somebody who is overweight, broad shouldered or extra tall. 

I'm 6' and 190. I have no problem fitting in a coach seat. 

If he wins this suit it will set a bad precedent.  Being fat, except in extremely rare cases, is not a disease nor should those who are grossly obese be given a free pass.

I hope the airline wins the case.

I was flying with my wife once when an overweight man sat went to sit next to her and started to pull the armrest up.  I reached over and slammed the armrest down and said "it stays down".  He just glared at me and then tried to fit his bulk into his seat. 

I dont' know what I would have done in this situation. I probably woudl protest, but I don't know if I would be so blunt.

This thread was made prematurely-at the end of November. I propose a more structured thread purely with lists, and this thread for discussion.
