Being 38, Ive played on alot of different systems and handhelds going back before the atari 2600. Without a doubt this is the most unstable piece of junk I have ever played on!!!:mad: Not even is the PC, which requires the occasional driver/patch update or even a hardware update, this friggin bad. I've had my 360 LESS than 2 months and this is whats happened to me:

RidgeRacer 6 - froze online 6 different times while trying to unlock those 23 online cars. Progress lost each time. Also cracked the disc!!! I've never ever had a cracked disc for anything (music,movies or games)

DOA4 - froze online 4 times. The game wouldn't go back to lobby. Lost progress each time.

KingKong - froze in the early levels of the game. Only lost progress in that level.

Burnout - Froze playing by myself during play. Thank God for autosave!!

GRAW - Froze while trying to secure the pres. Save CORRUPTED.


The only games I've played with no issues have been the arcade games and FightNight3.

Am I the only one having ANY issues?? Or are you guys just dealing with this stuff? I won't even recommend the 360 any more.

Sidenote - my brother, who got his after I did and from a completely different chain store is also having these issues, so I know it's not just me!!

One more screw from my 360 and its :uzi: :uzi: :uzi: !!

Anybody have Bill Gates address?? I'd like to send him back his POS after I redesign it with my hammer:D

ive not had one problem as of yet, as the console is becoming more and mroe available the problems seem far fewer, in every console launch the first batch usually has some hardware problems which get ironed out...ps2 anyone?

Freezes only when I rented Full Auto. I did have one profile corrupt though, but Microsoft helped me fix it.

had full auto freeze once or twice, same with doa. NBA 2k froze on me like 4 times online (sucked too because I was winning the games and I got the losses) Now Oblivion is giving me problems. I have had "disc read error 2 or 3 times with it). Oh well I got the 2 year warrenty so if it gets to be too much of a pain, I'll send the bitch back in.

I know you're new and all, judging by the 6 posts, but Christ this thread dates all the way back to 2006 dude!

You gotta try refrain from posting in dead topics unless you have something worthy of posting in them. :p

I love these guys who bring up the dead topics.

Just reading through the thread, noticing its from 2006, just makes me say: Fail.

Even though it was from 2006, I'd like to ask a question?

Why is Bill Gates the "Frustration Factor" when he really has nothing to do with Xbox?

I was going to ask why this guy is only complaining about old games, and then I realised the post date.

knowingspy, you're new here, but don't bump threads two years old.

And I see a bunch of others already told you the same.

Nutty, Bill Gates has nothing to do with the 360, besides being associated with M$

You didnt read his post, did you? He said Bill Gates didnt have anything to do with the xbox, not microsoft.

right...but it is a MICROSOFT Xbox 360...and Senor Gates is the poster child of microsoft. Useless, yes...but its like being mad at Tiger Woods cuz the new gatorade he endorses doesn't make you a better golfer...just find humor in it :-p

Im still confused as to why knowingspy brought up a 3 year old topic.

Also, nutty, Bill dosen't build the xbox 360's. He dosen't just go in and and start messing with them. It's not his fault 360's stuff up. Hell, he barely has anything to do with xbox.

The mods and admins probably haven't seen the date of this thread.

Never had a problem until I played Street Fighter for like 4 hours, then my Big Daddy figure slammed into the side of it. Knocked something loose cause I got the RRoD after it. Traded it in at GS and picked up an Arcade, no biggie.

Owned an original 20GB from Launch.
