Nothing wrong with the colour pink it doesn't mean your gay. Its a frekkin colour!

But anyway just yell at them and keep calling eventually they will get sick of you and give you something nice

I want a pink controller 2.

About six months ago i got a copy of gears of war for my trouble which was alright. They also offered crackdown, pgr3 and something else. If you complain enough then you should get something decent.

damn man I feel for you. When my first 360 died, I sent it away only to get a refurb that the disc tray wouldn't close without me physically pushing on it. i was pissed and let support know it. I ended up getting a shipping box overnighted, then I overnighted it to them (which they paid for), and it still took 2 1/2 weeks to get back. Not as bad as your horror story, but I see how you feel about the moron techs sometimes

You can't demand anything, and they will go through their customer service protocol before they even allow you to talk to the manager. Going through protocol will take you approximately 6-7 hours on the phone with the front line service techs, which is painful enough.

Then if you happen to make it all the way, you will be offered Arcade Unplugged, Kameo, or PGR3. If you were expecting something new, you got your hopes up for nothing. The controller option will not even come up unless you can negotiate with the manager, who are used to people asking for stuff for compensation, so good luck with that.

I got pissed how My 2nd xbox was sent back ground, but all this 1st time broken ones get express, so the women promised me it would be sent back express and they would break policy. Its getting sent back ground. I fought with her yesterday, and she talked to a supervisor, and still nothing for my trouble and said is there anything else I can do for you. I said yea quit your job so an american can take your place and do it better.

Why don't you just sell your 360, go buy a Mac, and a PS3 if you don't like Microsoft. Creating a thread does nothing. Calling Microsoft any of the following does absolutely nothing as well: M$, Micro$oft, Microshit, Microshaft, Micro$haft, Micro$shit, etc. This is just a general message to anyone who bitches about it, but still gets another Microsoft or tries to bitch.

my buddy sen his in for repair for the disk drive error read. He got it back about 3 weeks later. He turned it on and it did the same thing. When he called M$ they told him oh we are sorry we thought you sent it in for thew RROD, when we found no problem we sent it back. So they didnt even fix nothing they just sent his same xbox back. He was pissed, said he was gonna blow up microsoft and they hung up on him. I felt bad fore him but there was something kinda funny about it

Just be pissed when you call them. Eventually they'll give into reasonable demands, and the costs of making game discs is wicked cheap, so I don't think they'll actually mind giving away a decent game. Even if that includes something in the likes of Too Human. Be reasonable, but don't be a pushover.

Hopefully everything works out!

I know what you mean. Our computer was busted and my dad was trying to fix it and spent 6 hours on the phone with this Indian guy who didn't kow anything about computers. The next night he called again and got the same Indian dude. He finally got a real computer guy and fixed it in like an hour.

When I had my issues with them they said I could have a game or 3 months of Live for Free.....I listened to the list of games and they were crappy....So I took the live.

Looks like you don't know English too well either.


Complaining about Microsoft is old. If you don't like them, how they handle business, etc. stop buying their products and stop posting about it here. ^_^

You can demand but you won't get anything. I've had six 360's die on me and sent them in four times; buying a new console two times just so I could avoid the microsoft hassle. Maybe they're better now with compensating people for their troubles. All I know is I asked for compensation of some kind and they only offered a month card. :/

PS3s aren't a pile of shit.
