*Sigh*. My kids just knocked on my bedroom door and gave me the bad news. I KNEW it was dying, and sent MS an email two weeks ago – but since it HADN’T died (it just “screeched” when a game disc was in it – otherwise it worked fine) MS support couldn’t help me.
We’ll see if they can tomorrow. The XBOX is under warranty, so the money thing isn’t a big deal. It should be free.
But it’s the first week out of school for my kids – and the Halo 3 beta only lasts for another week. I doubt we’ll get the box back before the beta expires. And all that time my kids have no XBOX 360. And I have to watch my video podcasts on my PC, instead of my big screen.
I’ll get a Wii to play with if I can find one – that’ll keep them happy, and I really want to play the golf game with that Wii controller! It won’t be Tiger Woods 2007 in HD glory, I know. But it’ll be fun, from everything I have read.
But I really wonder why companies don’t believe me when I tell them something is “wrong”, or “dying”. They assume I am an idiot.
I have a theory on this – I think it is because they hire idiots to talk to me.
