I got the red ring right when i put it Bioshock. I went and bought another 360 cus i couldn't wait 2-3 weeks for free repair. After my original system was repaired, I returned the new one i bought for a full refund. I made sure I got a 30 day warranty.

Ive actually been looking into that as some way to get a 360 to lan with my friends at halo parties. (i hate spit screen!) but im to cheap to pay full price for a console which ill hardly use...
I know a couple people who just threw their old 360s away b/c they got the rrod... (they might just be full of shit though...)
I figure maybe giving some one 20-50$ for a 3 rlod 360 and spending 30 bucks on a x clamp fix kit from llama is worth it. (their are people who would rather not bother sending it in to m$)
I may own a 360 soon...
(offers? pm me!)

Thats why you buy a PS3, get GTA4 on Blu-ray and you will never have to worry about the RROD.

That'd be semi-decent advice a year ago. Times change, man.

There are probably still many people out there with consoles from launch time with this risk, but if you're buying around now for GTA IV... do it!

Same s-word different thread tbh.

Call me crazy but maybe you should turn it off while you go to work, especially if this sort of thing happens.

They'd still more than likely be covered by warranty.

And yeah, most of the people who get RROD are guilty of doing things like leaving their console on for several hours while they were out and then continuing to play it for several more hours. I've gamed for like 8+ hours at a time, but with several breaks in between. Work shift, I'm going to assume for this example, is 5-8 hours. So you turn it on, play for an hour, leave and then come back to play it for a couple hours or more.

I'm not trying to say that every owner is at fault, but even with the chance being there they thought a well ventilated area was the ultimate fix.

mine RROD'd twice. but it would be smart to get a 360 now, they have changed their CPU company, or something like that.

Okay,so now it my fault because Microsoft made a shoddy product?

No. Even with the high risk of rrod, many owners thought they were invincible, is all.
