    Default Heads Up! for CONSOLES

    Since consoles are a different beast and appeal to, I guess what you'd call a "subset" of the Faceplate collectors, I've been asked to create a thread for Custom, Collectors Edition and Limited edition consoles.

    If you see a unique console or console case, you're welcome to provide a link directly to the auction, or to wherever you spotted the console (like a news article).

    Keep in mind, if you're going to buy a custom case and put it on a working console, that goes into the realm of "modding" and any discussions about the actual act of modding are forbidden here at Xbox Addict. We do not encourage anyone to modify their actual console in any way that would void the Microsoft warranty, which includes opening the machine. It also presents a potential physical and/or electrical hazard to the person who opens a box, and XBA will not leave themselves open to responsibility for such matters.

    Lastly, please keep discussions to the Xbox and Xbox 360 only. I know there are a ton of cool DS's and PS2's, but that's for another forum.

    Mt. Dew Xbox (not 360) for $139 BIN. I don't have one so I don't know if they came with matching lt. green controllers or not. This one doesn't.

    What happened to me was worse. I bought a Simpsons Xbox from this seller "canusplay_eshop" and he said he could hold it for me until I return to the country. Period for filing has long passed. We exchanged emails for a bit but now I could not find him. He does not reply to emails or ebay messages. I now have $1200 out of my pocket

    If anybody knows how to get in touch with this seller, please do let me know.

    Default Heads Up for CONSOLES

    Ok heres the deal:

    I bought my console opening day, waited in line for it at my local walmart and everything. Console first got RROD within 7 or 8 months, but ya know they gave me a new one and a full years warranty on it.Not 6 months later RROD again, then 3 months, then 2 DOA, and so on until i hit the magic number of 12 or 13 now.I cant remember it been so many Recently they changed things and are only giving 90 days on "Recertified Consoles".

    Now i have a fresh console on return and im fed up because this is far too much trouble and i want to know if i should just repair it myself and basically experiment on it or should I keep using them so much that i burn them out within 90 days? Not intentionally just appears repairs made by them are getting worse

    Any thoughts?

    This isn't really the right place for this, as it's a thread for limited edition collectible consoles, and not really hardware issues, but I'll give it a shot.

    If you believe that is a better solution available to you than the one offered by Microsoft, it's entirely up to you if you take it. I am in a similar situation. I have four 360's. Each one has gone bad once and been repaired. Two of them now have disc issues and are both out of warranty. Do I fork out the $100 each and have MS repair them, or find someone local? Once someone besides MS opens those consoles, MS will NEVER touch them again.

    In the case of the red light issue, MS repair centers have a certain protocol to follow for what is considered "acceptable repair procedures" where a local repair place might be able to go beyond that. In other words, MS might do one thing that fixes that "loose chip" issue that works most of the time, where a local guy might cost a bit more, but be able to guarantee that sucker is never coming off of there again. See what I mean?

    Also, I know these things have issues that have nothing to do with your treatment of the console, but when I hear stories of people on their 12th unit, I have to wonder if you're giving it proper ventilation (on the sides AND the back), have it sitting on a fabric base, like carpet or a shelf dust cover.... anything that might contribute to overheating.

    I will end with a simple suggestion. Go to WalMart and get some of those 1/2" rubber feet with the adhesive back, and put them under your console to give it some extra clearance. You're out two bucks and it could minimize these problems you're having. I know, it's an inherent design problem and not your fault, but that doesn't mean you can't take steps to minimize the effects of THEIR design problem.

    I had one of those GTA 4 Elite unnumbered consoles but it died MS replaced it with a Elite. Only good thing is it frees up the faceplate to send off to Spaceghost. So beware if your special console does its RRoD or other death rattle thing you only get an unmarked clone back.

    You really should have raised holy hell about that. They should have at the VERY least, returned the case to you.

    I agree that's messed up. I'm affraid if I send my Halo 3 unit to be fixed they will send me an elite. Maybe i'll just buy a used one.
