FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
« on: November 17, 2011, 03:59:08 pm »

I used to love my xbox but today was the straw that broke the camel's back.

I was eagerly waiting for saints row 3, looking forward to it enough to spend 80 bucks  to get it first day.  And it was fun, lots of fun.

Until about 5 hours into the game where I knocked over my Xbox and it destroyed the game.

The annoying part is that I could understand the damage done if I had dropped it from a shelf, or off a table.   But this drop was from vertical to horizantal.  It was literally less than a foot from the ground and landed on a towel to boot.

Needless to say that because I knocked it over myself, this is not covered under any sort of warrenty.

This is also my fifth Xbox 360.  I had 3 RRODs and a DVD error, and yet I still remained loyal for some reason. (Probably the 300 bucks worth of music game gear I've invested in over the years.)

Couple the fact that 80 bucks is a lot to me with the fact that this isn't the first time this has happened, only the first time that was bad enough to destroy the game and you have one very unhapy gamer.

I had a lot of fun playing with my 360.  I will have fond memories of Playing games on this system, but they will always be overshadowed by the bad things, like 80 bucks down the hole.


plain and simple, I'm moving on to a system that does not have these problems.  This is the straw that broke the camel's back.

I've always been sceptical toward vertically standing consoles, for exactly this reason.

coughPCcough.

but edit: ouch. That's just bad luck dude. 5?! I think I would have migrated after 1, maybe 2 errors. I've heard PS3s have less problems, but having never owned either myself, I would just recommend a gaming PC.
EDIT 2: You can even use your existing XBOX controllers. I do - I have been using mine for Skyrim recently. :D

Indeed.

coughPCcough.
Most of them are standing in a vertical position, too. :/ At least mine has those funny supports that prevent it, to a degree, from falling over. They are pretty effective against weak to moderately strong knocks against its side.

I understand your Xbox frustration. I'm on my 3rd console right now. I've heard that even horizontal on a table, if said table is 'bumped' it will put a ring around the disc.

Also, live near a Walmart? Black Friday they're going to have PS3's bundled with some Ratchet and Clank game and Little Big Planet for 199.99. I will be getting this.

I have some severe issues with panic attacks in crowds.  Black Friday is not a good idea for me, period.

Here's what I'm going to do.. I'm going to write Microsoft, send them the disc.

If they do not reply or just brush me off there's going to be a really cool youtube video...

This is getting interesting. Will Microsoft react, is each customer really important to them? If not, what kind of video there will be...?

Get a ps3 and enjoy the superior graphics like the rest of us. Get Heavy Rain and enjoy yourself 4000%.

Jack, bro.

I will gladly do that.  If you're willing to re-buy me all of my rock band stuff... I've got an obsession with that game.

Sorry for the slow reply, you know I'm not here as much as I used to be.

Also, I got a regular definition TV.  IF you buy me a flat-screen too I'll post a video of me and the xbox and a 15 pound sledgehammer... :P
