Gamer's Worst Fear Realized

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.

  1. Gulgh! Thats the one thing holding me back from buying an Xbox.No one wants their gaming system to turn into an overpriced nightlight.

    My heart goes out to ya.
