Default Sad Day In RJolly87 Land

It finally happened, a trusted companion, finally gave up. No longer thought life was worth living. It was a good life, full of many memories, but alas, no more. I hope the next one treats me as well.

So long XBox 360, may your journey through refurbishland be a pleasant one, and may your next owner treat you well.

Purchased 1/18/08 for $279.99 <Arcade>

I will admit though, even though I took care of it, it still put up one heck of a fight.

RROD claims another victim.

So long old friend.

Get the new Xbox 360 Slim and never have this problem again.

Can't tell you how many people I know who called up Microsoft, sent in their out of warranty xbox 360, and had it repaired or replaced with a refurbished unit for free due to the widespread defect. If you haven't already, its worth a try.

For those that haven't figured it out, it is covered under warranty, and is getting sent in.
