RIP Xbox

The infamous 3 RROD


My Xbox died today. It has been giving me the constant 2 red rings (I know, not as bad as the 3 red rings!). Well I decided since it can't last more than 5 minutes without shutting off due to 'Poor circulation' according to the 2 red rings.

If anyone doesn't know, the 2 red rings indicates specifically that the machine is overheating. It shuts down the Xbox and if you restart your Xbox it will greet you with a small list of things to do to prevent overheating.

However, my Xbox has been doing this repeatedly, even after I've dusted it with an air duster and put it in better spots. I'm just going to ship to MS and have them fix it.

Should I just go ahead and buy a Slim? I hear the Slim is so much better than the original 360s, in terms of hardware cooling and noise, and its got built in wifi. What do you guys think?

the benefits of the slim seem quite... slim, tbh.

Just wait for the next gen consoles, the new WII is coming soon and the new Xbox probably won't be far behind.

I've never liked Xbox, why we should pay for a subscription to play online?

Well, the slim PS3 isn't too bad. I bought it when I finally had enough money to afford a current gen console and it isn't too bad. It's up to you though. It's not too different from the old xbox's 'cept there isn't as many cases of it being destroyed and it's already Kinect compatible.
