It's that time of the year, again!
Believe it or not, this is my first red ring of death. Fittingly, Left 4 Dead is what sent my supposed "RROD-proof" Halo Special Edition console to its green, green grave. The poor thing was barely a year old! Fortunately, my cousin has my back-up premium unit, which I had sent back to Microsoft twice already for repairs.
My final thoughts before Xbox 360 #3 bit the dust:
"No Mercy on easy difficulty with pistols with no health packs and no friendly fire. I can do it!"
"Oooh, gpbmike is on. Oh, but he's watching some lame Netflix movie."
"I'll just jump straight off this building for a short-cut, thank you very much. Follow me, Bill!"
"Wait--What the hell? OK, reset. Wait a minute. Breathe. Turn back on."
"Well ... Damn it."
EDIT: Could it be the NXE? "Is NXE causing red ring of death for Xbox 360?"
I am on my fourth or fifth 360 and I don't think there is a console out there that is red-ring proof.
Now that I am buying a new 360 in 2 days you make me weary of downloading NXE. Maybe I will wait it out for a while cause.
That sucks, Eddie. Seems like you got the same problem as my Elite, the graphical glitching. My condolences as well. :(
