Yea so I went to my friends house and took my Xbox 360, I just got Grand Theft Auto 4 so we played it a lot and God it is amazing! When I left, I went outside, put the Xbox, the game, and the controller on top of my toolbox on my truck, went back inside to get the rest of my things, came back out, put the things I had in the truck and LEFT THE XBOX 360 ON THE TOOLBOX WITHOUT REALIZING IT. So I drove about 15 minutes, and I couldn't recall putting my Xbox 360 back in the truck, so I turned the rear view mirror to see the top of the toolbox, and the game was just sitting there. It was then when I literally [pooed] a brick, slamed on the brakes, and flew all the way back searching all over the sides of roads for like an hour and a half. I ended up finding the controller and searched the area extensively for the Xbox, but failed to find it. It was on the edge of the toolbox, so it obviously just fell off somewhere in the middle of the road and someone picked it up (even though it was a very busy road). I was hoping someone would have just ran over it, that would have given me more satisfaction knowing that if I can't have it, NO ONE can have it. But now I have to live with the fact that thanks to my own stupidity I virtually unwillingly gave away my Xbox 360, it wasn't stolen. And BTW Grand Theft Auto 4 was inside the console.

I can't imagine what it was like for the person who picked it up, I mean how often do you see an Xbox 360 in the middle of the road?

Wow that sucks sad.gif

But, on the plus side I doubt your Xbox will work after falling off of a truck, so I doubt anyone will be able to play it wink.gif

The 360 is a wimpy built machine I had one and broke it while It was sitting on the passenger side seat of my car it was only about 3 months old at that time, I musta hit a small bump while driving and it didnt work when I hooked it up the next time blink.gif (oh yeah it was in the original box when I was driving)

I hope it doesn't work, the toughest thing about it is the fact that some little kid is probably playing it now. "Oh guyz lookz I just gotz teh Xbox 360 for teh fr33z0rz, with GTA4!"

Nah Im 99% sure its busted if I know Xbox 360 they break at the slightest impact. So since it fell from a truck,consider your Xbox Roadkill.

Well also I was going like 60 mph when it most likely fell off. My controller that I found fell off when I was turning at about 5 mph and it was beat up quite a bit, one of the triggers was broken and the battery pack was screwed, so yea you are right, there is essentially no way it survived.

Ohman.. your having some bad luck lately sad.gif sorry to hear this!
But if it helps, then i too can guarantee the xbox wont be much use after a bump like this. I've had one or two xbox accidents myself, and they are really fragile.

Haha yea, it is no problem though, stuff like this happens, no way to avoid it. And my hands are much better now, all the poison oak is pretty much just scabs and dead skin, no more huge, oozing blisters (sorry if that made some people sick tongue.gif).
