Dunno what it's like over there, but Microsoft are apparently quite fast over here. Last night I took it back to Blockbusters who wouldn't replace it, but told me to ring a number, and they'll do an instant swap.
UPS van came today..though due to a minor oversight on my part, they refused to take it (won't take it in the original box, has to be another one) even when I offered to do it there and then. Coming back tomorrow, so should have mine back by Saturday tops.
EDIT: Peon; American English: in a historical and legal sense, peon generally only had the meaning of someone working in an unfree labor system (known as peonage). The word often implied debt bondage and/or indentured servitude.
Got that from Wiki, so take that how you will.
