    Default 360 garbage

    Well my kid finally got over the 20 hrs of use on his 2 year old 360 and the dvd drive ate his and my favourite game GTA4. How long is the warrantee on the POS? Can the disc be repaired, it has a nice set of rings 1/8th inch wide around the circumfrance. It only did it to that game and the unit was standing on its edge as opposed to flat.

    Microsoft will issue a replacement to you for $35, even though its their console that caused the damage. I suggest renting the game at Blockbuster and switching the disc.

    Edit:

    1 Year Warranty
    3 Years Warranty for 3RLOD

    from my experience that will happen if the unit is bumped while having a disk in the machine. I know of several disks from people I know that after they bumped the 360 while on that the disks got scratched.
    If Your reading this the topic must be boring.

    microsoft has implemented a stricter enforcement regarding the rating system
    is your kid over 17 years old? If not, he shouldn't have been playing the game - that could be why it self-destructed

    The machine never budged, I was right there when it began making the horrid noises. I like the rental idea.

    Whenever I buy 360 games from EB Games, I get the guarantee because of the faulty system. However, I buy most of my games at Rogers, since I get them for $53.99 there.

    The 360's of the old days = 2- when first made..

    Are known for eating DICS when the dvd drive is going in it.

    MS has 1 year on the unit from time of purchase and 3 years since a couple years ago on ANY red ring of death whether it is 1 or 4.

    As for reparing the game dvd disc if it is really that bad ... its not worth trying it.

    If you bought it form EB games with the scratch warranty. Then they will replace it with another USED (GOOD DISC) game of that game or a new one if they have no used ones, but i do believe there is a PRO RATED charge for a NEW one that is replaced, but i could be wrong on that part.

    I forget too if the scratch warranty is only 1 year or not from EB games, again i could be wrong on that part.

    Make a backup of the game. It's the best warranty you can get.

    Yeah the dvd rom unit from before when it is failing it will destroy the disc. I had it happen to me when i had my 360.

    I read online about it too and many ppl have had that issue.

    Glad I didn't buy a 360, first the drive goes and flashes to indicate a problem, now it will destroy a 60 dollar game.

    is it possible that the unit is more stable laying on the floor or standing on edge,personally I would lay it flat.

    No matter what position you use it in, it will break eventually. It's fate. However, when the system works, it offers some of the best games you'll ever play. I'm thoroughly enjoying Fable II right now. And, Gears of War 2 arrives in 2 more weeks.
