My 360 is fucked up AGAIN!

Filed under: Gaming! — Hugsie @ 6:41 pm

I must be the most unluckiest person on the face of the earth. For the FOUTH time my Xbox 360 is fucked up, but this time it’s not the 3 red lights of DEATH, but a hosed up optical drive.

I was playing Call of Duty 4, the Ghilles mission where you’re up on the Hotel building about to snipe someones head off from a mile away. When I heard this gawd awful noise coming from somewhere. I thought it was from the game, but the CoD4 doesn’t make coffee grinding noises. Even my cat was like WTF is that noise? She ignores all the explosions and screams of violence coming from the game it self, so her getting upset over a weird noise must mean trouble.

I ejected the game disc and the awful noise stopped. Putting the disc back in was immediately ejected several times. Then I laid the 360 flat (usually have it vertical) and it still ejected many times. When it finnally stayed in that grinding noise would start again and I’d get “unplayable disc” on the dashboard. I seems like the motor that spins the discs has burned out… son of a BITCH! This is the #2 defect the Xbox 360s have, and I’ve only had mine back for a couple months since the LAST time it died on me in October! Goddamnit!

Wow my $50 investment for the Service Contract sure is paying it self back in SPADES! Plus, a bad optical drive is NOT covered on that extended 3 year warranty that Microsoft recently gave to everyone. That only covers the three red lights of death problem, not anything else.

But this is getting out of hand. Just as I was getting used to the new dashboard update with Xvid/Divx support, so I can watch my aXXo movies and shemale pr0n, I get this!

What’s really bad is that I’m leaving town in about 20 days for Xmas, and I may not be home when the UPS guy comes to deliver my Xbox back to me. If I call Microsoft now, I’ll get the box perhaps Friday at the latest, then mail my broken 360 the next day. And if they keep with the the 2 week turn around I’ve been getting, I may get it back the day before I leave.

This sucks! I might as well call up Microsoft and get this started.  I should put the number on my speed dial for fucks sake!

  2. Isaac what sort of stupid comment is that? What does having a place to live have anything to do with what I’m talking about? Yet you claim I’m a dumbass? What are you some homeless bum with internet access? Go fuck yourself you retarded asshole.

  3. Yea, what a jerk.

    Someone I know who works at Blockbuster and owns a 360 says that 360s only seem to muck up when you seat them vertically. Try seating it flat and see if it improves.

    If not… well… for all the money you spent on Xboxes, they OWE you a brand new Xbox. An Elite/Halo 3 one. with lots of bells and whistles. And a copy of one of the newest games. Talk to the BBB, see if they can help.

    Or maybe consider another platform/console. But I don’t expect you to change, after going through four/five XBoxes I’m pretty sure you don’t want to buy a Wii or PS3 instead, you just want an XBox that WORKS.
