In Memorium

Over the past couple weeks, the world has been shattered by the loss of several notable individuals.  Continuing the Grim Reaper’s soul spree, I had a personal loss today.  In fact, this is the third personal death in such a short amount of time.  It is very, very sad.

XBOX 360 #3: March 9, 2008 – July 5, 2009 (16 months) – No Video Output

XBOX 360 #2: June 30, 2007 – March 9, 2008 (9 months) – Red Ring of Death

XBOX 360 #1: May 23, 2006 – June 30, 2007 (13 months) – Red Ring of Death

They will be missed.

    I guess it must be only time before i will have the same problems…

    What about the “upgraded” hard drive. Do you keep that when you send in for repairs?

    I brought the console, the power cable and the AV cable to the local Best Buy, because I bought their replacement plan. I didn’t want to lose the hard drive, and I didn’t think they would look kindly on the missing security sticker. In the past, I’d always been able to keep the hard drive.

    This time, they wanted it back. They said that they needed to ship a 20 GB hard drive back with the console, because that’s what came with it, and none of the new consoles come with 20 GB anymore. I relented, and for some reason, they changed their mind.
