    thought this would go best in the club forum playas
    look at all the updates the dashboard update brings :D lots aint it
    2 of my favourites are divx and mp4 support and the xbox live updates including, downloadable classic xbox games and the improved xbox live marketplace blade with a news part and small improvements

    http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/systemupdates/20071204-features.htm

    tell me how people find the improvements im sure glad i have a xbox 360 now

    oh and i can now sync from my pc using a router there was a problem that i had the pc connected via wireless but the 360 plugged direct into the router all i did this time was set up media sharing via media player 11 and then connected to xbox live did the thing on the 360 sets it up oh you have to have sharing enabled in the windows firewall also

    Halo3 would get you $40 at least online, Even more if almost new (complete packaging, no scratches).

    Right now, I think just Toys R Us, but MS said that they lowered the price so others should be lowering the price soon. The news story is on the front page btw, just scroll down a bit.

    man, my 360 just died, I was playing oblivion and it froze and when i reboot the lights were red, man this sucks

    I don't think I can send it back because I painted it, anybody got any ideas on how you can fix it when 3 of the lights are red

    Would paint void warranty? There is a chance it wouldn't, ring them up and ask.

    I'm pretty sure it's voiding the warranty. And besides, the Xbox 360's that you send in to repair go to other customers when it's fixed. You don't get your same 360 back (not likely), you get a refurbished.

    M$ would fix it for free because youve modified it (but then again, if you havent actually opened the casing.....)

    Trying to fix the RRoD yourself is pointless. Becaus eit is possible to do, but then the problem comes back a week or so later anyway :(

    You could always buy a standard replacement casing off ebay, switch them over, then return it to M$ ;)

    Replacing the case won't work. If they see that the seal is broken, then they'll send back the 360 not repaired.

    just heard their making a 2nd Rainbow 6 las vega i mean that was an awesome game i play it online all the time

    anyone played Soldier Of Fortune: Payback? the original 2 were the best

    anyone played kane and lynch i havnt but was interested in it wanted to see if it was any good before buying coz it that or mass effect

    edit : youd have to open up the replacement case and i doubt it would have a seal on it tbh it would be hard work trying to fit together a xbox 360 really truly not worth modding at all

    Because of the paint man, your A$$ed out, sorry to say. I know people like to mod things and make them their own, but to really say, websites like Decalgirl.com are here for a reason. M$ gave us 3 years just because and that means on anything that will make it RRoD.

    I feel sorry for ya man. That has to really hurt. How did you have the paint done up for it?



    Your totally right on the replacement case. The sticker is there and there for that reason... But, because of the system being fried, maybe trying some way to get the sticker off to re stick it might work...

    I haven't played any of the Soldier of Fortune games but I was sadened to the fact that CoD 4 was so short... If its any better on time I'd like to get it. Kane and Lynch on the other hand isn't a game I want to touch. I've seen the game play and watched people play it. I dis like the game, and it's not worth it.

    Thats not exactly true m8. Ive returned at least 4 consoles (one of my own and others for friends) and all have had the seals broken! But all have been fixed for free and returned to me ;)

    How's that possible... or is it the fact that you send it to the england branch and they just want systems to sell there? Now that you say something like that, it makes me to think that if you mod the outside (paint it) then there should be no reason to refuse it... you didn't mod the inside... I guess then try and RMA it
