Its been a couple weeks since I have made a post to Random Blogging. So i apolgize and decided to tell you about the last week or so. So on Saturday being off of work I usually like to chill and play some xbox before I begin all my yard work. I was playing Halo 3 and dominating (not really but like to think so) when the Red Ring of death experiance happened.
I enjoy xbox live. With the new NBA Ballers game coming out I will not have the chance to play it for a couple weeks. My Brother in Law just got back home from school because its summer and I was excited to play some games with him. Well then my xbox broke. Bum deal really. Its pretty common I have found out from work. A few or my coworkers have had the same experiance with the red ring of death as pictured left. It has to do with the xbox getting hot and the motherboard detaching itself making the machine unusuable.
So after researching it online i figure that I could find someone to fix it but realize that everyone wants money for it. So I decided to check microsoft because they make the xbox and they actually know of the problem. I register my xbox 360 and find out its only a month out of warranty. When I got done with my vulgarities i came to find out that xbox will actually repair the red ring of death error at no charge.
Microsoft sent me a UPS prepaid box to send my busted up console to them in. I did the request on tuesday, recieved the box on friday, and sent the machine back to microsoft on saturday. So now its friday and they recieved the 360 on wednesday So i am hoping that they send it back to me soon. Consider yourself lucky if you have never seen these lights.
Is it right of Xbox to sell the system that is faulty. Should the Red Lights even happen.
