Haven't heard if they'll be adding Blu-Ray or not.

I noticed most HD DVD movies are only around $7-14 on half.com too.

I have heard people are no longer getting the movies they requested on the free offer anymore either. Not surprising. Also hearing that some people are getting letters from Toshiba stating they filled the form out wrong and will not be getting any of their freebies. Not that it matters.

I am assuming they will slowly phase off and sell their HD DVD collection. They already rent Blu Ray though.

Then I'm a winner either way. If they don't send my movies for some pretextual reason, I'll refer the case to a class action attorney friend of mine and we'll collect millions.

I'm only half kidding.

Hey Ht, did your representative tell you to send it in a box without marking the box XBOX, 360, or Microsoft?!

I just want to make sure I called the right number and everything aligns with how we're supposed to go about getting our shit fixed.

They should be sending you a box with a prepaid waybill. And yes they did tell me not to mark or write anything on the box, especially XBox or Microsoft. My guess is that they're not buying enough insurance to cover the cost of the unit, so they're trying to limit the amount of overt theft and minimize the loss to just damage.

I just got mine a couple weeks ago. I forgot to send in my proof of purchase, and they actually sent me a letter asking for it. I was surprised... I figured I was screwed.

I thought this was somewhat interesting. A study that showed some other malfunctions besides the RRoD.

I know of the 3 360's that I've had break, only one was due to RRoD, the other two were disc tray malfunctions.

New Info on 360 Death Rate Study

SquareTrade says the console's actual failure rate is likely higher than 16 percent.

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/855/855113p1.html

by Ryan Geddes

February 26, 2008 - Independent warranty company SquareTrade says the 16 percent Xbox 360 failure rate it reported earlier this month is just a starting point and that the actual figure could be higher.

SquareTrade warranty company announced the results of a report indicating that the Xbox 360 has a failure rate of 16.4 percent. Today, in a post on its buyer's blog, the company released more information about the study, including dates, sample sizes and failure patterns.

SquareTrade said it received 171 claims on a sample group of 1040 Xbox 360 warranties purchased between April 1 and July 31 2007. The company said all the claims were made by non-commercial users (read: not companies like IGN, whose editors are known to take their 360s into the bathtub with them) and did not include accidental damage.

Because of the date range studied, SquareTrade said it was unlikely that any modified 360s -- announced by MS in July to combat overheating problems -- were included in the sample.

Also, because the report only tracked the sample for between six and 10 months after warranty purchase, SquareTrade said the failure rate may be low. If tracking would have continued for 24 to 36 months, the company said "the fail rate is certain to go up."

"Our data shows that failures spike in the third month after warranty purchase but remain fairly steady after that, with only incremental drop-off until the eight month," the SquareTrade Analytics Team wrote on the blog. "This pattern is fairly consistent with all electronics failures."

SquareTrade also said its numbers don't take into account those Xbox 360 owners who bypass it altogether and take their claims directly to Microsoft, which could mean the failure rate is even higher still.

For its study, SquareTrade tracked 27 Xbox 360 Elites, 57 Cores and 956 Premiums. Out of the 171 claims reported (60 percent), 102 were general hardware failures (Red Ring of Death). Of the other 69 claims:

- 18% were disc read errors.
- 13% were video card failures.
- 13% were hard drive freezes.
- 10% were power issues.
- 7% were disc tray malfunctions.


SquareTrade said that, because the above issues are not covered under the extended Microsoft warranty, which only covers RROD, they are the more reliable figures.

On the odd chance that this turns out good, I thought you all should know about it. They dumped the entire team that made the old one and basically started from scratch. The combine scouting stuff looks like it could be really fun provided it's not full of bugs and crappy AI.

Mine wasn't really a RRoD, I don't think. Isn't that 3 red bars? I had 4... and nothing but a black screen with a little static. (Still had audio, though.) I claimed it was a RRoD for the warranty, though. It worked.

16% fail rate is not too bad.. It is not great by any means, but not horrible.. Looks better then the fail rate of any PC's.. Which is what it is..

16% in just 6-10 months is pretty bad IMO. More will probably fail in the long-term, raising the #.

OK, so I'm playing Indigo Prophecy, which is one I never noticed last gen but had heard a little bit about how it had a good story.

***There be spoilers below***





This game starts off ****ing amazing. When you're in the diner, and it shows you the cop outside, I really thought "Oh shit what the **** am I going to do!". The first time I played through that level, it timed out perfectly as well. I put up the knife, washed up, and just as I was about to leave the cop gets up, and we brush shoulders right in the middle of the diner. As soon as I get past him I haul ass towards the door. At this point I'm thinking this is going to be one of the best gaming experiences ever, even if it is more of an interactive movie.

The next few levels only back up that initial rush of awesome. Investigating the scene of the murder, saving (or not) the little boy then the cop letting you go.

But I think the devs were eating a lot of Taco Bell while making this game, because it promptly decides to shit itself. You're in his office, get a call to go fix something, then you're fighting giant bugs. He's running up the ****ing wall like Jet Li. The stupid simon says shit you have to do the whole time. I've read some other opinions, in fact there's a big thread on NeoGAF that inspired this post, and it looks likes it only gets more ridiculous. I'm not even sure I want to finish it now if it's just more of this.

It was a pretty good game even despite how the story goes completely batshit. It got really intense in some parts. Great game that not a lot of people bought.

I had the 4 rings and about 3/4's of my screen was covered with a green haze. My 360 took a dump at the two year mark a month out of Best Buy extended warranty =( Out of all the people I know, all have had various issues with their 360's, some but not most were the 3 RRoD. One buddy is on his 5th refurbed 360.
