Okk... so, how do I send in my Xbox to Microsoft? I tried to find something on their site, but when I log in, it says that my Gamertag isn't connected to the account or something, and therefore I can't get any instructions. And I'm dying to get back to playing Bioshock and Fallout.

Why don't you just take out the hard drive?

Yeah, that's finally what did my friend's Xbox in. He said that the RROD was on/off for him, but the Error 68 finished it off.

I might pick up a slim if it isn't as defective as the regular 360. The only issue is that I don't know if it's compatible with the current harddrive... That, and I want to save my money for the 3DS (Snake Eater on the go... 'nuff said for me).

It's not, as far as anyone knows the new hard drives are much smaller, and go in the bottom not the top of the console. You could buy a transfer cable for about 20 bucks or just use a thumb drive to ferry data over to the new system though.

Bah... I'll stick with the crappy build and get the 3DS instead.

My plan for my xbox 360 was to send it back to Microsoft to get it fixed (thing can hardly read games/dvds). Then I'd sell it with the games.

Things a piece of shit.

More of a great gaming console that has the possibility of turning into a piece of shit in 2 seconds flat. I love my 360, but I'm worried it'll die any second now. I'd be considering the 360 slim if it got it's failure rate below 10%, but I doubt Microsoft did or that'd be a huge part of their press release. Wish I could've been at E3 in the audience
