Scary stuff...

If mine goes bad, I'll just return it. I'm not too concerned.

There are people experiencing freezing, glitches, HDTV issues, black screens, etc...
Hopefully this is only happening in a small batch of the systems or in very rare cases. Anyways... good luck ownerers of the first 360 shippment!

Maxy, thats number is too low I believe. That means only about 12 xbox's in North America should be malfunctioning. By the looks of it on xbox.com's forum Hardware 360 discussions is going... more then 10 in north america have serious issues...

I seem to dodge the bullet every console launch, never had any issues even with the ps2. You got to addmit the 360 is a beauty.

only problem is, they are sold out everywhere, so returing is going to be a pain...mine is running great so far (knock on wood)

It would just be my luck to get a bad one. My first Xbox got on day one wouldnt even power on, way back when those came out. lol

Guess maybe its not such a bad thing that I dont got mine yet.

so that's pretty much like there are probably only a few dozen people who should be having this problem, lol

I had 4 straight freezes in PGR3. It always happened in a game lobby. I would push the guide button and it would freeze. So I just stopped doing it. Not when I do it it doesn't freeze.

But I'm getting the 2 year extended warranty anyway. My first xbox from the first batch failed.. so I just gotta get the big warranty.

Mine has only froze once. I think it was my fualt though.

I was playing PDZ and paused the game, I then hit the guide button on my controller to bring up the mini dash, on that mini dash there is an option to go to the regualr dashboard, I click it and it was halfway through changing when it froze. So i shut the console off. I havent turned it back on yet, trying to let it cool down.

I dont think mine has gone bad as I stated, i simply think i was pushing the guide buttons too fast, like with a computer.

Most of the problems I've been seeing, and the only one i've actually had, is with the freezing up when working with the dashboard pause menu. Mine froze when I tried to look at a player's game list while playing PGR3. It didn't seem to lock up the console fully either, I could still see motion on the right side of the screen and the sound kept going. That tells me that it's either a software problem, or more likely, a problem with the XBL service. Thankfully, those problems are easily fixed without your xbox ever leaving it's cozy spot.

ha my original xbox when i got it wouldnt power up now that I think of it. But soon after I kept trying and then it went. With a horrible fan noise but that soon went away too. So far my 360 has been running flawlessly. I'm not pushing it too far though. I did have a buncha friends over for fun gameplay today though. Everything went good. Also that media center is really cool. If you havnt checked it out i reccomend it.

Why? All your posts are like "LOL UR ICON!" anyway.

Anyway, back on topic-- I wonder if this is just a case of the "first batch blues" or whether its actually software stuff.

It would be really funny (well, in retrospect, but not for all the unlucky souls) if they put Thompson Drives in the first batch just as a joking tradition.

Well I think theres a lesson to learn here for all that got the system at launch "The early bird catches the worm, But the late bird gets the better system with price drops and package deals with kool games and all that neat stuff" and im done :D

hey friendly warning here...

My xbox 360 works perfectly... but then a friend told me that when u move the system from upwards to horizontal the lights switch places so that the top left always glows when only one controller is inserted... so i moved it to horizontal while the 360 was running and it scratched my disk pretty badly :s

You have been warned... do not move the 360 at all when it is running - at all!!!

No the early bird play games in bliss while the late bloomers only dream. Next time preorder instead of making dum excuses. If anything the second batches are the ones if any that will be rushed for the holiday and after. But don't worry these are top notch machines, I know mine is.

again even my parents heard about the errors going around with the 360's. In the end its not worth the headache getting a launch console when you can wait and get cheaper prices, better packages and no glitches or errors

We've only had one in my store come back, and it was a shipping problem (the case was physically cracked).

Even if it where the other way around which it is, we would still have to hear this crap. As for me I'm enjoying every minute as i do with every early addoption.

Wait, Scott, what do you mean in the package??? Don't you just buy it along with the console making the total $460.00???

killerscott
11-25-2005, 09:52 PM
You can buy it at bestbuy or anywhere that has the 2 year plan or you can wait till you get home and open it up and in the package there is a thing you can mail in directly to microsoft.

edit: also dont forget about tax. the machine itself is $428 with tax added in.

Ok I gotcha. Thnx for the help.

My 360 will only be $420 by the way. We have just 5% tax in South Carolina :hump:

For the people who were'nt fourtune enough to snatch a 360 on launch day, let me give you a little insite. First the 360 is more powerful then any computor out there, at least this is what J Allard claims. Second the people who are playing Kameo can agree that they have never seen so much eye candy happening at once that any other tech divice would have puked it's chips out doing so,so it's no wonder that occassionly 360 might have a hic-up or two.

What i'm saying is, and what i think, that there is to much Nitro going on in the 360 and a matter of time till it's contained.
