FourThree day weekend!
As we start one of the Unique American Holiday weekends, I’m looking forward to three days of hanging out at the house and doing some cleaning. I would like to be playing Dead Rising or something on the Xbox 360. Shame it’s dead.
Oh, yeah, that’s right. The Xbox 360, which I purchased in February, died. It froze up while playing a demo of Hitman. For some reason, it appears that a lot of people are having the same problem. I’ve seen a lot of postings on sites like Kokatu and the like talking about how after 8 months, their 360 up and died. The first two articles on the Xbox Support page are the symptoms that I experienced, and the Xbox Hardware forum is over 50% “My Xbox died” posts.
You would think that after paying $400 for a gaming computer, they’d give you a longer warranty than 90 days. Nope. they offered a 2 year “extended warranty” in the package for $39.99. I should have bought it. Make note of that kiddies.
