Like being in the audience would help? Unless your like the team manager who is in charge of building the things I highly doubt Microsoft would listen to you.

I'll admit that the Xbox 360 isn't as good as the original (I NEVER had these problems with the Original Xbox) but i do like their games. I just wish more games were backwards compatible with it.

Aside from that it seems that every time Microsoft releases a new Xbox they screw us over with it's crappy hardware or software. (if not both).

If I were in the audience, I would've gotten one of the new 360 slims. Everyone that attended the conference got one, and I wouldn't have to worry about whether or not to get a new 360.

But yeah, if it weren't for the fact that all my friends have an xbox, I'd be getting me a PS3 right now.

Agreed, mine has always had problems (second hand, bad decision, started acting up a few months after I got it). I x-clamped it and it worked for about a month, and has since died and been revived again about 4 times (with various methods, mainly overheating the CPU and GPU as safely as possible without a heatgun). It seems to be behaving now... but I'll probably end up getting a slim, want to wait for the cheaper model though, don't want 250GB of storage just for games

The main reason for the RROD was a processor issue. Bad processors would become defective, and then defect other parts of the system.

I have Castle Crashers as well, I've kind of grown tired of it because playing in a pub game is useless, everyone has all their characters at level 257 or whatever the max is so it's no fun, and the single player only entertained me for so long. Can't convince any of my friends to buy it, yet =P
Would you recommend Shadow Complex? Been thinking about buying it for a while.
