The problem with that is it would cost $100-$119 to get it fixed by Microsoft. You can pretty much get a new 360 for like $200.
They fixed mine for free, so I dunno.

What really sucks is that I bought this system back in 2007 and they added a 3 year warranty that just expired back in November.

My situation was similar, but I think it was one month or so after the warranty had expired. And I hadn't used it for weeks.

You mean updated systems or is xbox releasing a brand new console? What about PS? Is 4 already coming out too? Interesting...

Get a new slim for sure and shit never has problem.

a new slim $299 for 250 GB.

If you wanna get a PS3 then go for it.

IMO, Microsoft should fix the old 360's for free (since they knew these systems had problems) regardless of whether it's under warranty or not.

New system, but according to Rose, they don't come out till 2015. Date is subject to change though depending on what Sony does.

They don't give a f*ck, they all care about $$$, you would be a fool if you sending your 360 for repair and cost you $100-$120 and later you will have the same problem again.

If you're getting a new slim 360 then you have no problem, PERIOD!

I don't have that many games for the 360 as it is so I'm leaning towards the PS3. Plus I really like that the PS3 has Blu Ray.

Then go for it. Get a PS3 Slim.

You can't go wrong with that too.

Make sure they won't fix it, just because the warranty is out doesn't mean they will immediately deny you.

If they don't fix it for free and you don't have a large catalog of games for the 360 I'd suggest getting a PS3.

Default Re: My 360 broke

My Xbox 360 has been broke for like a year now. The thing can't read discs, and now I can't even open the damn tray. Been too lazy to get it fixed or buy a new one, and I don't feel like shelling out the cash. I don't play video games that much. I'll definitely bother myself to buy a new one by the time Gears of War 3 comes out though.
