PostSubject: I'm in a bit of a pickle.   Thu Jul 15, 2010 6:34 pm

Hi, I'm new to the forum. I been checking in now and then to see if I finally get the chance to sign up. I'm a huge fan of video games. I own all Xbox 360, Ps3, Wii, and PC. Along with DS and PSP.

Now I got into a pickle with the new Xbox Slim. I bought it around Tuesday, well I decided to go into MW2 since my friends called me up to play. After 3 hours in I got a message popping up that the console is recommended to shut down now or it will overheat (or something like that.) Well I did. I went out to do some groceries which took me a good 5 hours (had to stop by a friends house.), So I start playing MW2 again and again 3 and half hours in the message pops up. Now my Xbox is well ventilated in an open area its on top of a table and not inside a cabinet of any sort.

So today is Thursday and after playing for about 15 hours the Xbox shuts down and gives me a red blinking light. Some people tell its the console I got, So I called Microsoft and told them what was going on and all. They tell me to replace it they need the serial number...Now here is the kicker, apparently to them my new Xbox has an unregistered serial number, Of which they tell me I can't replace my console.

Right now i'm enraged. I just wasted about 300$ on this! Well I still own my old xbox elite but i'm still bummed down this happend.

Ive read that if you get the message you should consider:

Opening a window or using aircon...

Replacing the 360 to another place.

Take a break from gaming.


You know that gaming for more then 4 hours straight is not good for the brain..

But you should place the 360 where it can "breath"..

Yeah, near an open window or AC vent would work perfect.

So by calling us all 13 year old kids we have no lives. That leads me to believe you are in your upper or teens lower 20's? And you are trolling the forum? Lol self ownage!
