If you mod your 360 you better be ready to pay an extra $300 once your XBox dies.

And it's not if it dies, it's when.

The 360 is unreliable as they come and I would expect most 360s to not have a very high life span.

However, I would expect that it's probably your 360 acting up again. Check your MFD Date. You probably got a refurb'd 360 from MS, which is terrible and that's why you need to buy the warranty in-store.

I have a launch model that's working just fine. And I don't see how modding the Xbox would make it die any sooner, unless you mess up the process itself.

Your lucky.

Modding it or unmodding it: it doesn't matter. Your 360 WILL die.

The system doesn't like when you start up with the game already in there. I believe some sort of memory has to clear out.

By the way, mine did not get scratched.


So is this the only helpful advice you guys have on MY question? If so, carry on.

ya most of the 360's will come with the 65nm cpu/gpu's which run much cooler and better for power consumption

if you were to buy a 360 today.. pro or elite, it would come with the new chips

I'll join the league as soon as the CPU ceases to rape me on defense.
Is it only me or is it impossible to play decent D in this game?

Never had so much as a dirty disk error with my 360 in the two years I've had it. Plus 360 is cheaper and has better games. No thanks.
