I think we've all made a...public announcement. A kind of grief sharing maybe-a group hug on a gaming scale.

This isn't supposed to happen to me. I'm not a heavy gamer, I don't spend my nights slashing aliens or shooting big daddys-it's an occasional delight only, a breif diversion if you will. I've made sure ventilation is very adequate, the xBox has it's very own shelf instead of sandwiched between the CD player and cable box. This happens to other people, not me. Not ever.

I don't know exactly when it died, I haven't played for awhile. Even let my xBox live expire. It's not like the coroner can look at fly maggots and give me a date of death.

I turned her on the other day-not even to play a game, just do some networking. That's when it hit me. Three rings. Three evil rings.

I've checked everything-power supply, cords, is the hard drive firmly seated? It was. It was firmly seated.

It's time for me to embark on the journey many of us have taken. Wish me peace and luck on my travels.

My xBox360 is aged 2 years and 10 months. At least she passed within the 3 year warranty.

Nice to see that failure rate back up to 100 percent.

I think it says something that I'm not a power gamer or anything-the xbox mostly sits there, I don't stress it out.

Last time it was on everythings fine, turn it on later and it rings.

On the other hand I was worried since I don't put many miles on it eventually it would ring out, but past the 3 years. It rang out with 2 months left.

See how it goes. Did the internet deal, had the label shipped. Hopefully I get a coffin-I read on there about supplying my own box.

Strip down and put on this backless robe thing. I'll be back in a few minutes to mock you for being xbox fanboys despite all the hardware failures.
