Xbox Failure

Saturday, January 16th, 2010

I will personally attest to the Xbox problem. My 1.5 year old Xbox is now out of warranty. While Microsoft will offer service after that period for some failures, it won’t for what I have (DVD drive failure). Further, rather than make the DVD drives easily replaceable, there is an absurdly complicated system of DVD drive identity matching. I’ve worked for three weeks now to replace or repair the drive on mine with no luck at all.

I received a copy of Dragon Age: Origins for Christmas. It is now the 15th of January, and I haven’t played a minute of it because of the Xbox. Every other digital piece in my house (and there are a lot of them) has been kept up-to-date either with warranty repairs or my personal service. Not the crappy Microsoft Xbox 360. I’ll keep that in mind when I look for a replacement.

Full copy of the poster this comes from is available at my professional blog, here.
