I was just playing a game of Gears of War and then suddenly my xbox turns itself off.. I look down and there was the 3 flashing Red lights of death..

My first though was oh sh*t im gonna need a new xbox..

But when i turned it off and then back on, it seems to be running fine again :confused:

Anyone else had this happen?

It happens.. Either your plug got loose or your xbox will die soon... Happened to me on my old xbox 3 months later got the E-74

How old is your Xbox and do you keep it ventilated enough?

well, even if it dies, you might be in warranty as its 3 years warranty for red rings, so think of the positives, if i was you i'll phone up, say that it red-ringed and send it in for free if it is in warranty then you'll get a new console with 3 1 month trials and an 1 month gold card so its a win/win situation

There's a good chance its the power supply and not the console. Next time it happens, try turning it back on and see if there's a red light on the power supply.

there are also kits you can buy off of ebay to fix it for a very small price

Sometimes it just gets too hot and if you keep it off for a certain amount of time it`ll cool down and when you turn it back on it`s just fine this happend to one of my friends in real life.
