right now im going to go on a bit of a rant so please bear with me, i am currently on my seventh xbox 360, yes count them 7! all of which have broke ive not had a console last longer than 6 months that i can recall, my current xbox (elite) is now experiencing the same problem as which my last xbox died of it refuses to play games an as soon as i switch it on it makes 2 loud skipping sounds and then just goes quiet. ive had this console for about 2-3 months and this started like a month ago! but i could get it working by hitting the top of the console in a specific spot but now it seems to have given up completly. ive never been so angry at a company in my life. i just tryed to book it in for repair and apparently its not eligible (probably because i bought this console used surprisingly i cant afford to buy a brand new console every few months) the charge for repair is £62 plus tax for that price i can just go and buy a new console :/ and quite frankly i refuse to buy console number 8. this is the most ridiculous charade ive ever experienced. so today is the day i wave goodbye to xbox and next time i think im goin to buy a ps3. i have a ps1 thats been with me since like the early 90s my sister plays it a lot and never a single problem (my sisters bf lives with us he has a ps2 tht hes had about 10 years of which he plays it to death and again not a single problem) it pains me to say it because i love xbox live and microsoft in general but my respect for them now is pratically non-existent. sad times!!!
