World-wide Xbox 360 sales now total 80 million units, according to Microsoft
I'm that lucky too
Most of us were not...
So 50 million people bought at least one Xbox 360...
lucky you, not everyone is that lucky
Funny you say that. I was within the last two weeks of the warranty extension, since it was a launch console. I played on my 360 a lot too, and I mean with long games like Oblivion, Viva Pinata, Dead Rising, Mass Effect, Halo 3, and Fallout 3. Pretty sure the only reason it lasted as long as it did was because I kept it on our granite floors (we knew somebody that owned a quarry) and out in the open. It seems to be a matter of taking care of your console to keep it from red-ringing, since after moving I now keep my 360 on a TV stand with a USB powered PC fan plugged in behind it to keep the air circulating. Haven't had any problems with it to speak of.
I had my 360 since 2009. Not once did I have the RROD.
Damn , I'm not a Xbox kinda guy , but good joob MS ! :D , I don't understand how you screw up XboxOne so bad if the 360 is a really good console !
My brother and I were talking about that, I had to buy 3, after my third one I said "fuck it" and stuck with my Wii (now Wii U) and PS3
nice! Mine was out of warranty and before they did the extension for red-ring issues.
I got a free Xbox from Microsoft after mine red-ringed on me. It was still within the warranty, so they sent me a new 360 and a month of Gold after I mailed it to them.
To be fair, it would be less if people didn't rebuy the 360 after their first one (or two) red ringed :) My original one did, but I towel tricked it enough to last until I grabbed an arcade version at a pawn shop. Then that one went to my kid once the Star Wars one was announced.
