My Ex-Box 360
Well, for whatever it's worth, it finally happened to me: My Xbox 360 flashed the dreaded red ring of death last night, meaning I am now in possession of a deceased game console.
I can't say that it was a surprise. Xbox 360 failure rates have been so high that Microsoft announced this summer that it was extending its warranty from one year to three years.
But what timing! I'd just gotten my hands on an advance copy of this summer's upcoming & greatly-anticipated title Bioshock. I'd just made it through the game's first cutscene last night when the screen froze. A few reboots later, it was clear that my Xbox wasn't going to make a comeback. Guess I'll be doing yardwork this weekend after all.
Microsoft's Xbox support line has decent hold music, at least.
