    Well it had to happen...........


    My 360 decided to die today :rolleyes:

    I'd consider myself lucky, except its a launch 360 and hence no longer covered by 'ANY' warranty.

    So i'm going to go and grab myself a 360 Arcade Pack with Jasper 2moro. Just as I had started playing sam and max, and grown increasingly addicted to Trials HD :(:rolleyes::)

    Call them up anyway MRU. I have heard from a lot of people they just honor the warranty anyway. And Trials is way better on PC :p and cheaper

    That sucks. On a happy note, you're getting a new one. :)

    How do they handle downloaded content on a dead 360? Can someone just call Microsoft and have them transfer any permissions to the new 360 while locking out the old one? Or is their an online way of transferring the licenses?

    You can do it online at xbox.com I believe :) simply by putting down the serial of new console and it pairs your gamertag and game purchases to it...

    sikkinixx - I did ring them, unfortunetly 9 months out of 3 year warranty was a little too long over. They did offer to repair for reduced price, but really don't see the point in that when I can go to gamestop and get a jasper arcade model for €140 and the repair would cost nearly as much.

    On the bright side :)

    Broadband only arrived here at the same time as the 360 (Dec 2005).
    We were getting 1.5mb and it has remained that way for the last 3.5 years.

    The day my 360 died...... they offered us new speeds of 4mb down for the same price.... typical :)


    At least PSN & Live won't be so slow to get stuff from now...

    First off - that connection is ridiculous (or is it ours that is?). I live near a big city in the UK yet BT says our line can go at 0.256mbps, even though it's 0.6 at the moment. But GRRRR. :mad: Bloody BT. :mad:

    And my condolences to your 360! But I wouldn't worry too much about the content being tied to your system. My brothers Xbox died a few months back so he bought an Elite, stuck his HDD on my Xbox and used a memory card to ferry his files back. No license transfers or anything else required.

    Wow, 4mbps? I had that like, 4 years ago. I'm now just barely hitting 2MBps, which is amazing.

    Anyway, good choice on grabbing a Jasper system. If you get MS to repair it, it'll just die again. :rolleyes:

    Well we're getting 40-60mbps connections later this year so I can't complain too much. :p

    ^ 4mb to me is amazing..... Finally Ireland is where everyone was 2 years ago :D


    Yep. I picked up a Jasper Arcade model today. Came with Sega Superstar Tennis, Extra Wireless Controller & Kung Fu Panda / Indiana Jones bundle. Pretty decent deal, and most importantly...... It's so much quieter than my old 360. Transfered my purchases no problem online - everything working great.

    I'm sorry to say this MRU, but I have others on my list. You should have said if this was an exclusive thing, y'know?
