Has anyone faced the red rings of death (or RRoD) on their xbox 360 console? It's been reported that a staggering amount of consoles are or have experienced the issue. The numbers grow if you happen to have a launch console too.
So.. Who's felt the pain of seeing your 360 bleed the red rings of death?
i've had mine for a couple years now, no problems. ironically, my new PS3 stopped working within a month, and i had to send it in to be replaced.
the 360's problem has been improving with every batch, and it's not nearly as big of an issue anymore.
Unfortunately for me, I got the red rings of death after playing Guitar Hero III all night. It happened on the day after the game came out so I barely had any playing time with the game. That was, of course, back in early November. Ever since then, I've just kept it on and used the infamous "towel trick" to get it working again.
But, there is a happy ending; Just a few days ago, I finally had time to send my 360 in and I'm using Mike's (on this forum) 360 for now. I'm hoping I can get it back soon so I can get all of those hours of GTA4 clocked in on the replacement console.
I've had the RRoD only once, but hey once is too much right?

I'm afraid that if I get another RRoD, I would be screwed.
