So we got Presley a kinect to go along with my Xbox 360. I don't really play that many video games anymore, so he really just uses it now. I heard about a game called Rise of Nightmares. It's pretty much a zombie/monster killing game set in Eastern Europe that uses the Kinect. You can block, punch, swing weapons, it looked awesome. I thought this would be fun to play for myself. Picked it up and finally had a chance to play it today. 6 minutes into the game, red ring of death. WTF, STF microsoft. That is all

didn't get enought time to really try the game. Don't feel like making the 360 any worse by wrapping a towel around it to trap all the heat. Problem is the thing isn't even warm. I could understand if it was on for 8 hours straight or something, but in less than 10 minutes, giant fail

might have to edit the thread title to add "can we still be friends?"

*Status update*

So the warranty period for a 360 in regards to the red ring is 3 years. I have owned this one for 4 years and 1 month. Very upset. Couldn't get anywhere online, so I called. Spoke to a guy who nicely told my I'm SOL and I should buy a new one. I hung up, typed a comment online at their service section. I kept it tactful, but got my point accross. The guy I had spoken to called me back within two minutes after that and said he talked to his boss and they're going to cover it at no cost. He already emailed me a shipping label I need to print and just send it out. I'll get it back in 6-10 business days.

I had my red rings covered once by the 3 year warranty, literally one week before it expired. Didn't have any issues for another year & change, before I sold it and picked up a brand new xbox to get the bigger HDD, HD out, kinect port, etc etc.

Mine took about a week to get repaired.

I had mine RROD when Forza 3 came out. Just got home from picking it up. Installed the 2nd disk, and loaded up the game to play and RROD. I had to wait another 2 weeks before I could play Forza and this 360 doesn't work as well as the one I had before.
