i am absolutely furious. ive had 7 xbox 360's, and EVERY ONE has been CRAP. im sick of being treated like crap by micro$oft, when you call tech support, ****************************. i hate those people. my current 360 just scratched my Frontlines: fuel of war disc that i bought 2 days ago. the damn corporations in this country get away with anything, and treat the little guy like me like crap. im depressed and angry, i just want to bust bill gates head open, that useless peice of crap. probably no one cares, but i just needed to rant. i thought i wanted to be a game designer, i thought i knew were my life was headed, but now i dont know what ill do...

He isn't alone. A lot of people have problems with 360's. The 3 Red Lights of Death occur far too frequently also.

That sucks to hear :/ I have an Xbox 360 and it has been working fine for me. It will scratch the disc if you don't put it in right.

Calm down man. A lot of people aren't happy with Microsoft or 360 failure rates. I know at least 4 or 5 of my friends that have had XBox 360s die on them. They are useless at helping out as well.

Don't change your dreams just because of a useless company. Everybody knows Microsoft are useless but you need to phone them up and say you're just not happy or take it to a shop to fix. Maybe there is very little wrong.

I have never bought an X Box as they are so breakable. Playstations don't break that easy. Not even PC's break that easy.

I feel for you man as I know how hard it is with lack of money and you expect a product that will last.

Normally it happens quickly mate. If you get one that works for a long while you're usually ok. They tend to break fast if they are bad ones.

the last time i called, the first person was a mexican who couldent speak english, then i got transeferred to a woman who was VERY rude, it got worse from there. needless to say, 7 consoles failing is not exactly motivation to call these people back, but thanks for your kind words, they mean alot. biggrin.gif
