Red Rings of Death

So, I’ve scoffed at all the reports of Xbox 360 failures. I mean, ours has worked perfectly for over a year, surely we couldn’t be the exception? Well, it turns out, I scoffed prematurely. We, indeed, are not the exception, as we have now been graced with the red rings of death.

Due to Microsoft’s stupid DRM scheme, if we get a new Xbox, I will no longer be able to use any of the content Dustin downloaded with his account, because I have the secondary Xbox live account.

Also, since we plan to return it with the Best Buy warranty we purchased rather than waiting four to six weeks for a repair from Microsoft, we’re going to have to do something about all of our saved games. Thanks, Microsoft.

  1. So sorry you experienced the ‘rings o death’. We have had ours for over a year now so we may have escaped this tragic end. Netter gave me K & RC’s website. Saw your link. Hope you and D are having a great life together so far. Congrats!! :> Hthr
