I had just turned on my console, and was playing Geometry Wars for a couple of minutes when bam, the screen turned black and the whirring of the 360’s fans stopped. And a hideous 3 red lights shone out from the console. I stared in disbelief, and quickly turned off the console. After waiting 10 seconds, I turned on the Xbox and it was working fine to my relief.
I now know the frustration of millions of gamers worldwide. And I can’t believe people still support this system, its so buggy and unreliable. That was the real reason I bought a 360, because it was popular and had the most games released.
So surfing Wikipedia I found that there’s also a lot of news about the 360 scratching discs (see my earlier post) including some people who decided to sue Microsoft earlier this year…
