XBox360: The good, the bad, …

I got my XBox360 the day it was released in Germany. It was always a bit louder and hotter than the once my friends had (at least the small sample of 2 friends i have that also have a XBox360), but it worked fine.

Until last week. I poped in a game, and it just froze. Reboot. Same game. Freeze… Reboot, another game. Hang.. Reboot. Demo on harddisk. Freeze. Reboot, disconnect Harddisk. Hang…

Finally the 3 rings of red indicate a hardware failure.

I called Microsoft the next morning, the pickup service is nice. Now it takes up to 3 weeks to replace/repair the unit. Let’s wait if it turns out the ugly or not…
