After returning home from a boring trip, I could finally relax and and fired up my Xbox 360 for a couple of Gears of War 2 tournaments. Just when I was navigating through the multiplayer menu, I heard a short but loud screeching noise as if someone was tearing the TV apart. The next moment, the entire screen was glitched with checker-like patterns and the game froze.
My only option was to re-power the console in hope of getting my shooting spree started. And right before my eyes, I witnessed what all Xbox 360 owners fear most - the Red Ring of Death.
My reaction... OTL - I just couldn't believe this would happen so soon since I only bought my first Xbox 360 last year. By the way, it's a Falcon board.
Thanks Microsoft. You just ruined my weekend.
