Title: Red Ring of Death Hits Home!
Post by: Linkfox on March 25, 2008, 10:34:12 AM
Yeah, my roommate went to play the Xbox 360 we have, and then we had those 3 red rings staring at us. It looks like my roommate's got it fixed...for now, though.

But yeah, we've become a victim of the red ring.

It's 3 red "lights", but whatever.

Shouldn't this go in Game Discussion?

I wasn't sure where to put it. *shrugs*

And, yeah, I meant lights.

And I'll let a mod move it to Game Discussion.

Pretty much everything gaming related goes in Game Discussion. I honestly don't know that DS got there... it seems a bit old though.

Sorry, I had to. 3 Rings would have killed me.

Well, my roommate's gonna have his parents replace the Xbox 360 with a better one (the one that died didn't even have a hard drive, for corn's sake!). I think he's gonna get the $500 Ultimate/Elite/Whatever 360.

Wow. No wonder it broke. Not having a hard drive is like, asking for it.

The Elite is worth it, from what I've seen. And it comes in black.

It was 2 years old, and the warranty for it was 1, so, yeah.

And we had to get by on a memory unit to save our stuff.

That defeats the purpose of owning one. Out of curiosity, how long have you have it?

There is a lot of risk when you buy a console used. Games are one thing; if they're too scratched, you can always get them resurfaced for cheap. With systems though... if that fails, you loose a lot of money off the investment. Buying a system used is one thing I'll never do.
