I've already gotten it repaired too in the past which is bullshit

They say I shouldn't need to again to if I "comply to the rules" tho

But wtf

I gotta have an air conditioner on now every time I play?

As if the 360 doesn't rack up the energy bill enough as it is

Wow

Awesome next generation technology

I purchased FFXI for PC this evening for whenever my 360 decides to take a shit

or for when i can't run the AC

I'm not much of a gamer, but when I do buy games, it is for the PC.

I cannot see myself putting out a few hundred for a consul, and almost a hundred for games.

Does anyone know...

If the Xbox 360 Elite is as much as a piece of shit as the original models?

If I get it repaired again will they add the "upgraded chips and heatsinks"?

Or do I need to buy a new console?

Do what I did. Keep the hard drive and cables and then sell the console to someone on craigslist or whatever and get like $60. They will fix it and sell it off so they make money. Then turn around and sell the power brick and component cables for another $30-40. Buy an arcade system and then sell the new controller for $30. It's a pain in the ass but in the end you will have a brand new system that is much quieter, has full warranty and is more reliable for less than $100. You could probably get someone to buy the arcade game that come with the system for another $10.

The Elite Systems are going to disappear from the market because they don't sell.

That was the only good model, lol.
