    ... the other consoles don't know how to act Sad ...

    no, differently from Laura Foy nobody is gong to bring me my xbox 360 back soon: I just called the assistance and they told me that it will take 25 days-1month before they'll send it back [C][C][C][C]

    in the meanwhile Blue Dragon and Bioshock feel so lonely [C]

    the last time my 360 broke a new came back just 4 days after mine was received, I wonder what's going on this time.

    Why the heck are these things breaking? What about them breaks?

    I REALLY would love to buy one...but if I have to put up with crap like this...nah, don't think so.

    Mine still works after two years. But I don't use it heavily... I also wonder what component is exactly breaking - is it always the same or always something else?

    The 3 red rings of death (the only breakdown covered by the 3-year extension) is caused by the video chip overheating.

    Some repaired Xboxes came back with new heatsinks:

    Intersting to know, thanks Minh. That's probably why mine isn't broken yet. I'm usually playing only the arcade games and from time to time a game from DVD (like Crackdown etc). Probably mine hasn't that much work to do and doesn't overheat therefore.

    So rather than shut itself down, it just breaks? Smiley BRILLIANT!

    Why don't they just build in a temp-component that flashes a message on the screen, "Warning, XBox is too hot...Shutting down in 30 seconds."

    I'm sure people wouldn't complain about having to take an hour off as opposed to a month off...

    On a related note, if Microsoft is looking for an engineer with both printed circuit board design experience and professional experience writing operating systems, shoot me an email.
