X-Box Elite 360 RROD

Postby Skippman » Tue Feb 02, 2010 2:02 pm

Well my trusty 360 Elite blew chunks last night right as I was firing up Mass Effect 2 for the first time. :vom:


Guess it's time for a new one. Anyone know of any good deals going on right now for the Arcade model? I can just port my HD. All I care abou is that it does HDMI and... well, works.

New Egg has the Arcade for $199, free shipping, and you get a $25 gift card.

Doesn't Microsoft repair RROD'd Xbox 360s for free?

Yes, but the success rate to my understanding is rather low and I'm not hip to being without my X-Box for 4-6 weeks. I bought a new Arcade at Best Buy last night with a protection plan (had a ton of reward zone points to burn) and was playing Mass Effect 2. I plan on shipping my Elite in for servicing. When I get it back I'll hook that back up in the theater and put the Arcade in my bedroom as a media center extender for my TVersity server. That's something I'd been considering doing anyway.
