The problem here is the flux capacitor is WAY too close to the Dilithium crystal

Just replaced mine after 8 months, got a system that was manufactured 2 months before I got it and it is starting to act funny. Great playing system but lousy equipment.

Time to get an Elite!

Sorry to hear yours crapped out. I've had one friend who had something weird happen to his, not the 3 red lights though.

Mine is at Microsoft right now being fixed. Funny thing is when I got the red rings of death, I hopped online to check my warranty and It had expired 11 minutes earlier. I couldn't believe it, the warranty actually had the time of day that it expired. As you can imagine, I got pretty pissed and called them up to gripe. The guy was pretty helpful, he extended my warranty another three years and got a box out two days later for me to send it in. That was about a week ago, so I'm still waiting to see if and when I get it back.

Mine took just over two years to crap out on me. They handle the fix pretty fast though.

It's a sign from god. I was in love my 360, then it died and I got a new one about a year ago. Got a ps3 around the same time. Well, xbox 360 died again and I slowly fell in love with the ps3 for it's speed, stability, quietness and sheer sexyness. Last night the playstation network for gaming (free) went down for about an hour. I was pissed, it was primetime gaming hours. So, I decided to give the xbox some love. I threw in halo 3 and BAM red rings. I was really f'in pissed then. Couldn't play either game I really wanted too and the xbox took most of my wrath because it was supposed to save the evening and didn't just "not save it" it effin died on me

Well, I still hate Microsoft... but I LOVE BESTBUY!!! I had 3 months left before my extended best buy warranty expired, I've already used it twice to trade in a broken xbox and they were supposed to end the warranty both time, but didn't. So they let me trade in again.

Well, they were out of the core xbox that I bought last time ($299) but they had the halo 3 special edition xbox's in. They gave me one straight up, it came with a wireless controller, headset, harddrive and HDMI output which my other didn't have.... and I got it all for free, brand new. I love you bestbuy

I didn't buy the extended warranty, but I did get the Elite. Several of my friends got the First Gen 360 and have had no problems.
