honestly, im sure a billion of you have bitched about this before, but i own a genesis, dreamcast, 64, gamecube, and ps2 and they all still work (well, the 64 has some troubles sometimes, but once i get a game going its fine). my fucking 360 broke after a year and a half for no reason. it even has its own shelf in the entertainment center. a whole huge enclosed shelf with just a 360 sitting there. i know its a video card issue, but i still have to send it off for a refurbished $99 replacement piece of shit. i would buy something else but im addicted to nutflix. im fucking pissed. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEFFFFS!

    Maybe the fact you have it enclosed is why your XBox broke.

    It has an overheating problem something fierce.

    I'd construct a situation such that everyone died at the exact same moment so that we could attack whatever afterlife there happens to be en masse and so take it over and create a perfect unending afterlife existence. Also, everyone who wanted one would have an afterlife pony.

    Even though I've had two 360s fail on me (two seperate 360s), I still love me some x-box. It's kind of like a crazy woman (any woman?), even if she treats you like shit you still love her if she's a freak in bed.

    Their products are definitely low quality, but plenty of people are going to defend them. I personally won't buy anything they make in the future until several months after release when I can be assured it's not going to melt down on me.

    Now Mr OP a 360 failing sucks but it's hardly news. Just call the support people. If they fucked up, call them back and politely explain. Don't be a dick.

    He is going to be so pissed when he reads this.

    In other news - that drawing has convinced me that he is not using a 360 at all, but is plugging into a stuffed burrito. Case solved - close the thread.

    I'm going to take your OP seriously:

    Yeah if that's your setup it's not a good idea for a 360. What you have there is an enclosure that's only open in one direction. As there is only one opening the air will not circulate at any rate close to what's required to cool the system. The air in your enclosure will simply get heated up rapidly by your 360 and not enough cool air will replace the hot plasma your 360 irradiates. The 360 will then just circulate hotter and hotter air through itself, until the system gets hot enough to sustain hardware damage.

    When you get your replacement try putting it on top of that piece of furniture, so that it's not closed in. Then maybe it won't break.
