My beloved XBOX 360 just failed... epically.
After a long night at work, I grab a beer and sit down on the sofa. put on my wireless headset and pick up the controller. I'm about to jump on some double experience points Gears 2 goodness. Looked out the window to see what my dog was barking at and my wife asks, "Babe, why are the lights on the xbox flashing?". I quickly turned my head, and my heart sunk. Red Ring of Death!
So I called Microsoft and they're sending me a coffin. I start looking on YouTube for Red Ring of Death videos and peoples' different actions and REactions. My wife comes into the room, sees what I'm watching and almost falls on the floor from laughing so hard. I wasn't laughing. So, I left the office and went into the livingroom and just sat there in front of the tv... holding my controller. She comes in and laughs at me again, this time falling over the back of the sofa. I looked at her and explained to her that I was more upset about the fact that she got it for me for our first Christmas as husband and wife... and now it's broken. It's amazing how fast a woman and go from laughing to crying...
I told her I was going to send it back to Microsoft and that I'd have to wait for a few weeks to get it back. Then she tells me to get dressed and that we're going grocery shopping. So we go to Walmart and she tells me to go "play" in the toy department. She does this sometimes so I don't think anything of it. So I go to find her but she's already checked out and gone to the car. I start to help her with the groceries and notice and odd "lump" under the blanket in the back of our suv. Before she can stop me, I lift the blanket up and see a brand new XBOX 360 laying there. She told me that it broke her heart when I told her the real reason I was upset and that she felt so horrible for laughing at me. She also told me that she had squirelled away around $340 here and there (didn't know about THAT, but anyway) for a rainy day.
So we leave and then she takes me to lunch.
I love my wife!

What is the cause of that?I always worry when the kids play on it for a long time that it will break like that ,because 340.00 is alot of money for it to justgo poof!

wow awesome , your wife is great...
well thats just microsoft for ya .. the earlier xbox's would over heat so much that the motherboard would pop right out and off the frame causing its death.
microsoft wanted to save money is the end result , consumer suffers (just like everyone of their products , its sad that im just waiting for my xbox to fail)

Awesome, but now when Microsoft sends it back you'll have 2....unless it's necessary to have one in another room, I wouldn't mind. I'm on my 3rd Xbox 360, don't use it much, I've been buying every game for my PS3, No problems with that bad boy.
I've come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum.
