    How long did it take you guys to get the 360 after MS has sent you the email saying it's on it's way back? I got the message on Monday, but when I look at UPS' tracking info it still says it's in Frankfurt. Chances are I'm not going to get it back by Friday now ;_;

    Mine's exactly the same, emailed on Mondsay, no word since. UPS just says "billing info received" arrrrggggghhhhhhh

    yep that's exactly the same with me dude. They must be waiting until they have a lot to ship back to Blighty or something, I dunno. That's kinda of comforting me at least, as i was beginning to wonder if my xbox was M.I.A.

    We'll get through this ordeal together, friend

    we're all in it together. Shipped back to me last monday. UPS site is useless.

    It took about 3 days for them to get the console to Frankfurt, so im allowing the same amount of time to get it back again.

    "Fallout Friday" is looming dangerously close though :(

    Movement on UPS now, shipment was delayed apparently, but is ready to roll now, phew, hope it's the same for you, comrades.

    I was dreading my box being in a Frankfurt ditch.

    If it gets here for Saturday I will be happy enough.

    My tracking status is still "billing Info received". Ahwell, hopefully it'll update soon

    It was always going to be a precarious few weeks when two of the world's most incompetent companies joined forces to repair your pride and joy free of charge!

    Well another day, another ball breaking status of "billing info received" Who should I phone, MS or UPS?

    I'd say UPS, MS will just say "well we've done our part, it left our building so Idunno.."

    Gah. Just got through the intro on dead space. 'Check the security console'. The screen goes black. fuck. Switch it off then back on again. RRoD.

    Mines a 18 month old Elite. First Xbox 360 I've had die on me.

    Early elites were zephyrs... so no.

    Besides, there's no completely fixing the possibility of hardware failure.

    I think its a bit silly to hold off some of these triple A purchases until the HD installs come out, as chances are it will make little difference.

    The DVD drives has nothing to do with RRoD. The problem is the motherboard. Running from hard drive would make no difference to heat output.

    Had mine picked up by UPS at 12:30pm Monday, & it was delivered at just after 3am (apparently) yesterday, so it's been pretty good so far.

    Remains to be seen how long it will actually take them to "fix" it though.

    My xbox temporarliy RROD'd last night playing fable 2 for the first time. When i play again now it keeps freezing, but no RROD. Same goes with other games.

    Does this mean i am still covered by the guarantee? Also, i only bought it in August last year- do you think I can take it back to Blockbuster where i bought it?

    Really don;t want to have to send it off- i work away from home all week so will never be around to get it picked up or delivered! Not happy!

    i might just bite the bullet and get an Arcade this weekend....

    I find it fascinating how many people either
    a: say buy a new 360
    b: have bought a new 360 because it red ringed... surley the 360 sales figures are a complete farce...

    Looks at noisy, frequently glitching launch 360... hang in there little thing gears soon.. then remembers gears killed more consoles than ET.

    i agree with you- it's not ideal but the hassle of sending it off is too much for me as i work away so much. In reality it could be months before i get it back. i might give my broken one to a relative and tell them they can get it fixed...

    Just checked and the status has now changed to:

    Device received at service center - We have received your console. \o/

    Fingers crossed it gets back to me in time for GoW2.

    My 360 has lasted since August 2006. But it finally gave up last week with an E74 error and one flashing red light (whilst playing Saints Row 2 BTW not Fable2).

    Phoned MS and told em it was three flashing lights! Just hope they don't check that much in Frankfurt :)

    haha. Typical. I've got Fallout 3 in the post for tomorrow and I've got nothing to play it on. Xbox is being collected today.

    UPS site says 3/11 for me. Glad it's finally been confirmed but it is a wee bit annoying as I would have loved to have had it over the weekend!

    Oh wait. That's maybe the departure scan from the UPS depot to the MS repair centre. Are you able to check your UPS tracking schedule for me Restart and see if they tally?

    The departure scan is when it's leaving the delivery centre, to it's delivery destination. You'll know when they receive your console, as they'll send you an email to confirm it.

    My god I didn't realize TV sucked this much. Fallout 3 and Dead Space are just sitting there tormenting me.
