I have given up on XBOX and bought a PS3. I love it! Once the "Home" deal gets going, the online aspect should be much much better, maybe even more so than XBLive. But beyond that, being able to play a game without it freezing up is really nice!

I bought my 360 the day the came out and haven't had one single problem with it! I don't have any after market fans or things like that ether!

Guess I'm lucky... which is odd because usually I have trouble with things like this always not working for me!

Your time is coming...don't worry;) . I am on my second one but I just haven't had the urge to play it since the first one burned out on me. Forza is keeping me interested a little though... PS3 is in my sights soon .

Don't hold you breath on GT5, it could be years before that hits the shelves.

Yeah, I heard the news yesterday. It sure makes me feel a lot better knowing that I have 3 years covered. So all those who bought the extended warranty are screwed? How does that work?

Edit-For those who wants a PS3, the 60Gb will be on sale on July 15th for $499.99 after $100.00 instant rebate at Circuit City. This could be a permanent price drop.

Yeah.. Just keep playing Forza on it and it'll go. MS said Forza has nothing to do with the "bricking" of machines, but it is fairly strange that MANY people have had failures after running that game.. I am sure it has nothing to do with bad "coding", but I DO think Forza taxes the processors enough to cause them to heat up to the point where it is melting the thermal paste away and causing the 3 red rings.

I've noticed that certain games heat the system up more than others. I've never had any issues, and I've played the heck out of mine. Microsoft is taking a big hit and they really don't have to, you have to tip your cap to them for that.

I've owned just about every major system since the NES, and despite all of them having their own issues, this is the only time I've ever seen the manufactuer back up their product.
