If you haven't heard it yet people are saying that there x-box 360 crashes, they get errors, black screens.

Also about 20 mins ago on the news they had a report that people where reporting errors and such.

Here is some people talking about it.

Its Microsoft, I'm suprised people didnt expect this sort of thing.
This is why I NEVER buy first gen releases of hardware. EVER.

Have you ever seen anything from Microsoft that worked out of the box? They usually take five years to get their products working somewhat well.z

Glad I'm waiting until they're cheaper!

1900 dollars (in American money) for a freaking microsoft product is retarded....

Microsof­t is notorious for this. Never buy any product from them until its been out at least 6 months.

Truer words were never spoken.

I like my cars and guns to already have countless thousands already out there running for years before I spend my money. Let someone else Beta test, and get the model with the revisions.

According to that logic, the only thing that should be reported by the news is the war in Iraq? Everything else is kind of trivial in comparison. News programs have to have fluff pieces like defective Xboxes and the like for variety.

Huh? I am trying to help people here not spend alot of money on something that might not work. And that maybe they should hold of getting one until they find out more about whats wrong with them.



An God bless the troops.



I wasn't bashing you .....I was bashing the news
Link Posted: 11/23/2005 4:33:58 PM EDT
considering who the company is and the hype surrounding the product... I'd say this is business news.

Not at all....there's a continuum of news-worthy stories and defective xboxes are slightly closer to the ass-end of the list than the death of that ugly dog.

I wonder if any of those crashes were because of overheating. As I recall, the original Xbox was prone to overheating if you put it on carpet, because the carpet interfered with airflow into the bottom. I don't own an Xbox, but that tidbit stuck with me.

So SQL Server Enterprise Edition or Exchange Server aren't worth at least 1900 dollars?
Link Posted: 11/23/2005 6:10:21 PM EDT
Mine has been running madden solid for nearly two full days, and hasnt had a problem yet.

But I would rahter own one and have it crash than not have one at all. When the second gen machines come out, I will buy one of those, and give the first gen one to my brother.

Ventilation is a good point. I put my XBox on "audio spikes", that elevates it over an inch above the component below it...I've hever had a problem...
