I just got a Xbox!!

Post by Dormin on Wed Nov 24, 2010 11:59 am

Yes, I just got a Xbox.

I need some info on how to take care of it, and what NOT to do.

And, whats the normal life expectancy? how long till the red ring of death appears?

Newer xboxs don't suffer the red ring of death problem that the older generation of xboxs did, however they are still prone to issues. Most xbox will go for atleast 3 years without many or any issues.


In terms of taking care of it, make sure to wipe the vents on the back of the xbox once every son often to prevent dust build up.

Xbox's number one problem and cause of most malfunctions is overheating, so make sure the vents are not blocked and the xbox is not place in a spot where it will recieve alot of heat.

As long as it's not in front of a radiator, and you clean it off once in a while, it should be fine.

ive had xbox for almost a year now, its goin rly good. ive been able to keep it clean without lettin it overheat

the key thing is to not play it for hours at a time. play it about 2 or hours at the most, then let it sit for a while. dont play it too much or u risk overheating

I love my 360. Ive never had overheating problems. Also if your ever worried about leaving it on by accident, turn on this thing called auto-shutdown. Its saved my Xbox from melting a few hundred times...

What? I have a PS3, and I've played an XBox for 10 hours straight. I would pick the PS3 ANYDAY.

BTW, I heard the Red Ring of Death doesn't occur at an exact time, it just happens when the XBox overheats.

People, we don't need a console war here. You have your personal preferences, but try not to talk too much about them. Console flame wars, if it ever comes to that. Can be quite ugly.

Console wars are completely immature, and it really is immature when someone like ME says it is immature.

So is that thing about getting the red ring of death because of overheating true?

Teehee, Pc gaming is where it's at ILikeItPlz

But in all seriousness, just make sure that the Xbox is well-ventilated (If your that concerned, you can purchase an extra fan unit to plug into the back of the console). In terms of games, I'd honestly say that some of the older titles are better like the original Fable, Halo 3, Most of the Guitar Hero's, Gta 4, Saints Row 2 etc.

My friend told me something like if you get the red ring of death in less than one year and it's impossible to fix, then they give you a new one free of charge. ReallY?

yeah, but what they don't tell you is the price they charge for it to be sent back D: We are talking hundreds. Of course, free replacement, but you pay P&P

Well as long as it's a Genuine Red Ring and the warranty sticker hasn't been broken, then yes they will provide you with a new one in under a year (but you have to pay to ship it off to them and make sure you take out your hard drive and games first).

Maybe the developers set up Xbox's to gradually deteriorate over time, so people have to buy new ones... Shh
