Is the 3rd Repair a Charm?
My original Xbox 360 has broken a few times, three to be exact and I can’t say it’s ever a good time to be without a console. First I have to tell you that Xbox ( Microsoft) is without a doubt a pleasure to deal with. They are always polite and professional and they have the whole support/repair process down to a science. They ship you a box that comes with a shipping label, anti-static bag and padding to ship your Xbox back, they even give you a perfect piece of tape to seal the box with.
Having said that, I can also say it’s frustrating to be without your game console for anywhere between 3 to 4 weeks. What’s even more frustrating is when you receive your console back from Xbox (they actually gave me a new replacement) and it’s broken within about 30 days of getting it. They do consider the fact that you loose your console for about a month, when you receive the console back from Xbox repair they also include a free 30 Day Xbox Live prepaid card. In both cases I believe my problem had to do with overheating.
If having my console break 2 times wasn’t enough my console started overheating again, and yes you guessed it, it went back for a 3rd time. This time I received an older console and wasn’t too thrilled about that, however all I really care about is that it works.
I’m also wondering if my 3 year warranty which ends this December will be extended due to the amount of problems I have had and the amount of issue Xbox has had with these consoles.
Has anybody else out there had the same amount of problems with your 360 consoles?
Let’s hope mine keeps running! Time to go play some LIVE!
