thats not the only reason, some drives scratch the disc if 360 is in vertical position.

My 360 (before it was replaced) would put weird scratch like marks on my discs. With a bit of cleaning the marks would actually come off. No idea what it was, and it was most common with Mass Effect, could have been the discs, as I know a lot of other reported the same thing on Bioware's forums.

To prevent the system from dying (looks like they are expecting them to) the system shuts itself down...

I know not every "red ring" was from overheating due to users playing for hours and hours with the system tucked in an entertainment center, but a lot were. If the damn thing has to shut itself off to stop people like Hunt from gaming for 12 hours straight then, well... I guess I understand that.

We just mess around with him. He's actually a great guy, and very funny. Just don't tell any one I told you that. :: He'll sleep rape me.
