Re: xbox=rip off

I read a stat somewhere that said 30% of Xboxs have a failure problem. Not sure the details, but if that's true that is completely unacceptable.

Re: xbox=rip off

Remember a couple of weeks back? I knew this was going to happen to you. Microsoft is comprised of low life scum, who don't care about you, or your problems. I went through the exact same thing.

^^ Southpaw: That is the average failure rate, and I agree totally.

Every Microsoft product I've ever owned has given me trouble, and every time I've contacted the company, they were always rude. I will never buy another MS product again. Period.

Edit:

BTW, forget both of those overpriced hunks of trash. Get a Wii. Nintendo always makes stuff that's fun, easy to pick up, affordable, and lasts forever.

I deal with MS a lot, and they are the height of professionalism when it comes to business products and business customers. I don't know who they have working in their games and toys division, but working with MS is a pleasure on the business side.

All I know is that if a couple of older Japanese guys in suits come to my door with a remote control saying, "We would like to play"....I am gonna open up a can o' whoop ass on 'em!

Teach them for f*ing up Godzilla vs. King Kong.

Re: xbox=rip off

Xbox is just a waste of money. I have seen a lot of problems with them ever since they came out.
PS3 will be a great system when they come out with more games and when the creators learn its potential.
Wii is great for Wii sports -- I have yet to play a game for Wii that is actually worthwhile other than Zelda. Super Smash Brawl will be pretty cool though.

Re: xbox=rip off

they're not lying. that would be pretty stupid. they simply got it wrong or something else has been affected or some such... just send it back again and say you want ANOTHER free game to make up for it for everytime you have to send it back..

"Sony is comprised of low life scum, who don't care about you, or your problems."

MS have some customer service flaws and some product flaws.. but if you can get a good xbox, it's great.. mine's been going strong for over a year and it's fantastic..

MS may screw you around but as far as underhanded and petty tactics i think sony has them beat so i'm in the 'screw ps3' category

Re: xbox=rip off

If you are still in warranty and stuff, they are breaking the law in the UK.

Call the trading standards and have thier arses kicked.

Then when all is done, get a light bulb and drill a small hole in it and fill it with petrol, then empty most of the petrol leaving some and alot of fumes. Then break in at night and fit that light bulb for them.

When they are next back and switch the lights on, BOOM!
