Bioshock on 360 - Is my 360 dying?

Today, when I started playing Bioshock in earnest at last, I noticed a couple of irritating problems:

1. In intervals of roughly 4-10 seconds, the game will freeze completely for about a second, before carrying on as normal.

2. Sound files have a habit of acting like a 'broken record' (repeating certain parts over and over again before continuing).

Does anyone know what could be causing this? Is this a symptom of a dying machine? Will I ever discover the secrets behind Rapture with these shitty hardware issues?

    Are you connected to Live and did you download the update?

    Try clearing the cache(restart the 360 and hold A when you start the game up). It used to do that and then I thought they fixed it...

    Can we get the chemicals in. 'Cause anything's better than this.

    I ran into that problem too, my box played other games fine and later died. Can't say its a symptom of it going out though and its apparently a caching error. Check the 2k support site, do something like hold both bumpers and hit A while the game boots to do a cache clear.

    I had that problem too. Try transferring your profile and save data to a memory unit and running the game from there; that seemed to work for me.

    There's also been an update to the game not too long ago, which claims to fix at least some of the crashes. Haven't had a chance to check it out myself, but that might also help.

    I had this with BioShock, and my 360's still running fine. I got similar errors with my old one on Table Tennis and got a new one on warranty.

    My recommendation is to get a can of compressed air and go to work in every hole you can find.
