Firstly, I don't consider myself a fanboy of any particular console. I loved the N64, Gamecube, PS1, PS2, and even the original XBOX. I simply buy the console with the best games. So when Halo 4 came out, I decided to break down and buy an XBOX 360 for the first time. I remember the red ring issues and the other problems from years past, but I assumed by now Microsoft had smoothed things out. I was wrong.
First thing I do with my new XBOX is put in the Halo 4 game. I install it, it boots, I try the campaign, I get booted back to the start screen. I figure it's just one time error. I try to start a campaign again, going from a different menu this time. I get booted back to start screen. I uninstall.
I look on forums, try numerous different install methods, and 4 hours later still no campaign. Maybe it's the disk. I send away my Halo 4 to get a new one.
Forward 2 weeks. Still haven't received new Halo 4, but I get Red Dead Redemption. I turn on my XBOX to play RDR. Nope. RRoD. I have just a few things to say at this point...
#%$& MICROSOFT!!! $%#& the XBOX 360!!! WORST GAME SYSTEM EVER!!! RETURNING AND NEVER LOOKING BACK!!! GOODBYE!!!
