That's major suck. Any indication what's wrong?

Overheating I believe.

I've had random problems with it freezing on me when I attempt to log into FFXI. Yesterday it did it 6 times in a row, I can log into POL fine, but when I get into the FFXI side it'd freeze. I gave up and did some other stuff for awhile, then went back and started playing Lego Star Wars II. (Cause when you can't play FFXI that's the next best thing!)

I got through a level, it froze again when taking me back to the lobby. So I shut my xbox back off, started it up again, it froze on the start screen. Since then it doesn't recognize the hard drive and tells me I have no storage device with which to save my game.

I had that extra cooling fan on it too :<

We will see what happens to Q as well as I am installing SP2 for XP pro x64 now. Being a MS update who knows what will happen.

LOL Doc that was kinda cold there bringing in Homer at this sorrowful point in Squitty's life (know you really did not mean it to be that way).

His sister just had to buy her second 360 last week. The carriage unit gave out on hers.

On top of that he has a Dell laptop for a backup. I can understand why he is bummed.

In my experience Dell = FAIL before warranty expires and again afterwards. My 'Dell' Inspiron 8200 laptop in 5 years = 4 hard drives / memory replacement / etc. . . .but I keep it going as now it is a challenge.

I hope that Squitt has a better time with his.

I think you could just register as TheDad, since that's how everyone knows you.

Hmmm.. I have been toying with the idea of getting a 360 recently, now you're making me reconsider if there are that many issues. I was going to ask the forum's opinion. However that's almost asking apples vs. oranges. 360 vs ps3 or even possible psp vs ds. And then I just drop the whole thing. IDK me confused.

wii rocks, as does the ds, i owned a psp for all of ab out 3 months, none of the games i played were inovative or very entertaning, i ended up trading it in and getting a ds, i love it, games are inovative/refreshing.

as far as my xbox goes... only thing i use it for atm is ffx11........ i havent seen one xbox game that grabs my attention, and if i was paying my own electric bill me thinks id be mortified, take a look at the power adapter some time, its freaking huge i almost feel like i need a cooling unit just for that thing...

i kinda hope ff 13 isnt gonna be ps3 exclusive, but i doubt that will be realized, i dunno if they are planing on porting it to the wii but that would make me very happy, would strip any reason i would have for considering buying a ps3.

actually sony lost the bid for FF, so ff13 is probally going to be in a bidding war between the 360 and the Wii ( more likely the Wii since SE has prior business exp with Nintendo )

Then again, FFXI exists on the XBox360, and not on the Wii, right?

I remember reading something in my latest Game Informer Magazine that FFXIII wasnt going to be PS3 exclusive, that it was gunna be a multi-platform game.

Maybe im psycho, coulda sworn i read that tho
