Second 360 Elite, second RRoD
« on: January 27, 2015, 10:52:02 PM »
So my first elite had an RRoD which was handled under warranty.  It came back and about 9 months later the DVD went bad.  So I purchased another 360 elite from Gamestop.  Right before Christmas it RRoDed, but no warranty.  So I log in and find out that the only thing available was replacement.  Decided to go with the Xbox 360 S.

With my horrible experience with the 360's so far, I'm really iffy on buying a One.  Anyone had any issues with those yet?

Too soon. I haven't heard of any common issues.

To be honest, I'm surprised you're interested in a One based on your track record with the 360.

I'm not very highly interested in it, to be honest.  But there are some good games, and a couple of my buddies have one so there is the multiplayer thing too.  The issues are why I'm holding off on it.  If I hadn't had such crappy 360s, I'd be after one of those as well as a 4.

I'm definitely interested in a PlayStation 4 since my 3 has been nothing but solid...though I did put in Gran Turismo 5 today and had several gigs of updates waiting :lol:

Not to be a downer, but my 360 S blew up on me, so be careful out there

This one is from MS, so if it blows up, it has the warranty.

The warranty.

What does that mean? Is this a warranty replacement from Microsoft? That means it's a refurb unit. Hopefully it carries the remainder of your previous warranty but a lot of times, I've seen the warranty on a refurb warranty replacement (not specifically an Xbox) be only 30 days.

You honestly shouldn't have the issues with a slim you had with the Elite. My first 360 was a Halo skinned Elite...and it worked like a champ for years, but started getting a little sketchy so I got the Reach Edition Slim...no problems, then upgraded to the Halo 4 Slim when it came out and I'm still running it...waiting on Halo 5 Edition Xbone (hopefully) or just a confirmed Halo 5 street date before I upgrade.

There was no warranty on my current 360.  The Slim is a new purchase that they discount for those of us saps who are out of warranty on our xboxes.  I've learned my lesson with MS and the 360s.  I'll be looking in to a service plan for this unit.

I really wish I could just swap the DVD drive from my dead Xbox into the Xbox that works but has a DVD drive.  The one that works with a bad DVD drive had the RRoD repair done.

Why can't you swap the drive? It's actually really easy to do.

Because according to MS and some other research I did, the serial numbers have to match.

Seems simple enough. Swap the PCB for the dvd drive.

I'll finish watching that from home.  Maybe I'll fix it and give it to my sister.  She won't play many games with it though.

Go PS4, you know you wanna.

Seriously though PS4 is great. The share play feature is awesome (anyone with a PS4 can stream a game from YOUR PS4, with your permission, whether they own the same game or not), twitch streaming is great, gameplay recording is great, everything is just well done. It's like a more natural evolution of the 360 than the Xbone is, in my opinion. Takes everything the PS3 and 360 did well, makes them better, and throws in some extras.

PS4 is very, very slick....but then again the Xbone does have its charms. At this point in the game its more about exclusives than anything else. I'm sticking with Micro$haft because of my man love for the Master Chief, but if I had the dough to run two consoles (my wife would fucking kill me) I would absolutely have a PS4.

I'm going to for sure.  My PS1, PS2, and PS3 have all run like champs, and still run.  Well, so does my original Nintendo I rediscovered in my closet.  Only gaming system to ever give me problems has been Xbox 360s.

I'm going to get an Xbox One eventually, just a little unsure of their quality with my experiences with the 360s.

So far I think both the PS4 and Xboner are performing very well.

Whoa whoa whoa.  It sounds like you are trying to deal in facts, sir.  This is the internet.  We don't do that shit here.
