The lights are on
I'm on my third case of RRoD. As a soldier serving overseas, I can attest to Microsoft's change in policy to shiping to APO addresses. They sent me a box with shipping label and detailed instructions. Reps even called me back quite frequently to make sure I was happy and had recieved said box and shipped my broken Xbox off.
That being said, it's very hard right now to convince myself not to buy a PS3. I'm not a Sony hater. I loved the PS1 & PS2. I won't lie and say I don't ABSOLUTELY prefer the Xbox 360.
It's just really hard right now, trying to convince myself to NOT buy a PS3. Are there similar flaws with the PS3? Am I being a blind fanboy for asking these questions in the first place? Shouldn't I have given Microsoft the finger the first TWO times this happened? Why am I so anxious to get my Xbox back?
All in all, it would be great to at the very least, have another Blu-Ray player in the house. For some reason, none of my friends feel comfortable watching Blu-Ray's in my bedroom. Go figure. But with the awesomeness of MGS 4, Infamous, and Drakes 1 & 2, it's a lot harder to forgive 2 months of no gaming.
Especially when it's an Xbox 360 ELITE I bought 7 months ago!!! Are we not past this yet, MICROSOFT???
