    My XBOX 360 isnt playing games anymore. It wont read the disc. It doesnt even sound like the disc gets spun. Im going to have to send this shit in cause it better be under warranty. Jesus christ this sucks. I want to play Call of Duty so bad.


    EDIT:


    LIMITED WARRANTY

    The term "Xbox Product" means the Microsoft Xbox 360™ Video Game System console including (when considered as a whole) the Microsoft software stored on the separate Xbox 360 hard disk and embedded in microprocessors within the Xbox 360 console, and Xbox-compatible hardware manufactured by or for Microsoft, whether included with the Xbox Video Game System or purchased separately.
    A. WARRANTIES

    * 90-Day Express Warranty. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Limited Warranty, Microsoft warrants to you only (the original purchaser), that under normal use and service the Xbox Product will substantially conform with the accompanying printed user instruction materials for a period of 90 days starting as of the date of your sales receipt (the "Warranty Period").
    * Implied Warranty. You may also have an implied warranty and/or condition under the laws of some jurisdictions, which is hereby limited to the duration of the Warranty Period. Some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty or condition lasts, so the foregoing limitation may not apply to you.





    Since it was purchased back in December the warranty is no good?

    MicroOWNED. I guess the extended warrenties are worth it..

    You can try though, I know Microsoft is really helpful in these kind of situations... plus if you don't have a functinable 360, then you can't buy games which then reduces Microsofts royalties.

    Don't even bother bitching them out. They'll probably help you regardless. Try being polite.

    All consoles have shitty 90 day warranties.

    If I were you, I would talk to a friend that works at a place that sells them, get him/her to make you a new reciept.

    We do this once in a while for customer service issues etc for companies that are really stuck up for warranty repair. We make an invoice, photocopy it, and then return it in the computer so the till/inventory balances at the end of the day. The end result is a new current date with a new warranty.

    I would first ask the manager wherever you bought it from politley if you can exchange the unit. If he says now ask him if he could make you a new reciept, chances are he'll say no but its worth a shot.
    Worst case scenario take my advice above in the first paragraph.

    btw, like the other guy said, always be polite at first. When your polite, MOST of the time the person on the other end WANTS to help you out.

    If they don't budge, thats when you start to raise your voice, if that don't work, talk to someone above them, etc. If you complain enough you will get what you want, its not worth the companys time or money to deal with you when they can make you happy by getting you what you want, especially when it costs them little/nothing in the long run.

    btw, microsoft is pretty good for service.

    If you still have the box just return it..?

    If not call MS. Back in the whole "LOLZ DEFECTIVE" days, they were extremely helpful to everyone.. I actually never heard one bad thing about their 360 CS.

    Keep us posted.

    So true. I've never owned a Sony console and I don't think I ever will.

    Every console has problems when it comes out. I wouldn't be hating on Sony so much, the PS1 and PS2 has had a WAY better title selection than the xbox and 360.

    I was on the phone once and some guy said, "S as in tsunami"

    Dumb shit...I'm pretty sure it was a joke though. You never know though. I think some of our customers should purchase an education first.

    The verdict is...



    129$

    Even though almost 1000$ has already been spent towards the system, there is nothing they can do... well, according to "David."



    I asked to speak to someone with more authority than "David" (aka Mohammed) and they were on their lunch break.



    Im supposed to call back in 30 minutes and talk to "David's" boss.

    if its that bad, and you cant do anything else, just to do this:
    buy the exact same one,
    change it with the one that is broken,
    then return it.
    i would buy from walmart as they usually dont check any of their returns :evil:
