Now then now then, SEGA, now that Mizuguchi has bought back the rights to Rez and done this, please take note and release Panzer Dragoon I and II on XBLA. "Winged Death" achievements (you should know what I mean) and PD's "Episode Zero" w/ leaderboards plz.
Special insider leak said it was as high as a third in the old consoles. But it's lessening with every new model (not the SKUs, but a difference in the chip they use for the coolant, I think, makes the difference. It's not something you can tell on the back of the box, but the newer it is, the newer the chip model is).

Our 360 died just before Christmas, apparently they will fix most Ring of Death problems for free, although Im not entirely sure of the details. Owen sent it off and it was back, all fixed in a few weeks!

Im not sure of the name but Ive seen Owen lurking around a 360 forum thats specifically about these problems and theres links to the various contacts etc who may be able to help... maybe post a piccie of it on there? Sorry I cant remember more detail but ours gave us a red ring twice: once it was 3 segments, minus the upper left or right, cant remember which... and that was because the cable in the back of it was loose. Second time around, there were 3 red segments again but it was the opposite top segment that wasnt lit. That was the problem that we couldnt fix ourselves and what we sent it off for...

Hmm... I had a quick Googleimage search and noticed that some of them are the 3 lights as we saw them.. which is what I assumed the ring of death was. So, if you get the whole ring lit up, whats that? Virus = very yes?
Yes well at least they help you for that. My original xbox red/orangr rings all the time and refuses to start up. Their advice? "Buy a new one." What about my game saves and music? "Get a 360 next time." Can't you replace the hard drive into a new original xbox? "Nope."
So I have an original broken xbox with about 20 saves on there that no one can fix. Great. Oh, and I'm not about to buy one of those £40 books from ebay and read into a guide for fixing the red lights either so....
Nothing interesting here my friend. Look further down. "Shoot 'em at birth, that's what I say. Yes, I agree. He is great comic maker." Madhair ftw.
The Hard Drives are detachable. The Core 360 is, indeed, just a Premium with the HD taken out. So when you send off your 360, you take off the HardDrive and built-in faceplate (I totally didn't know that white bit on the front is detachable until I sent it off), and send them nothing but the base console. Then you get it back in 2-3 weeks.
I've never seen any on sale, myself. How much would a 360 hard-drive cost? I'm currently stuck with a very [censored]ty 64MB card which needs half it's space taken up for a single gamesave in some cases.
There are three things I try to live by:
1) Never tell a bride the day before her wedding day that "there is a problem"
2) Nothing good happens after 2AM - just go to bed.
There was a really good deal on near me where you could get a game and an HD for like £50, but that's because there's now the 120GB HD to compete with too. The basic 20GB one is still pretty expensive though, thus why it's worth just getting a Premium in the first place.
