12:06 pm - Bad things happen in 3's...
First it was Walkers, then Rogers, & finally now my 360 bought it. I turned it on last night to watch some streaming netflix and i here this noise like a jet engine winding up and it just keeps getting louder and louder until i see the left half of the circle turn red. 2, not 3, of the rings went red. So it looks like I'm pretty much screwed. I suppose I'll take the same route as Walker and just pick up a new arcade since they come w/ HDMI now.

More shitty american products? My Wii hasn't had any issues & my PS3, although fairly new hasn't had a problem ...yet. So why is it the 360 just can't stay afloat? Poorly designed? Marketing strategy to sell more systems? It's probably it little of both. Maybe one stems from the other.

I'm thinking it's because they were trying to keep the price-point down. As the parts get cheaper, they'll be able to make better variations of the 360

The GPU on my Wii did go bad. However my 360 came back with a dead LED on the circle of lights when it came back from the RRoD repair, so it's already been repaired twice and I expect my DVD drive is going to bite it in the relatively near future. I'm considering trading it for an Arcade system soon.
