Nope. Those consoles are probably from other countries as well. Not all are supported by MS. Cyprus doesn't have one and it's not even supported by MS at all, even if they sell it officially... Basically you get a one year warranty from your retailer, and if it breaks after that, you're out of luck. They can send it to the UK for repairs, but where's the proof that MS requested funds? They could very likely say that the console was under warranty to MS (ie sold 6 months ago) and get it repaired for free while they ask me to pay $200 for repair costs. And since we're talking about a design flaw, it's just a matter of time until it breaks down again.

Thank you.
Me too..oh well looks like a ps3 is the way to go.

what a warranty is for? Shouldn't need them, but in my experience with some electronic devices that should just work, its always smart to get a warranty on some things just in case to prevent yourself from being screwed.

Kid is on his 11th X360! Say what you want but I have never known anyone to go through so many of the same consoles.

As a preventative measure before your warranty expired.

It is well taken care of and it doesn't get used all that much either.

I'm not going to say that there is not probably a reliability issue with the console. I hope they are fixing it. Its also unsure what condition people are putting these things in to cause them to fail so much. Sort of like placing a PC in an enclosed cabinet and wondering why it overheats all the time.

I would have to agree with that, although I would never have believed that someone could go through 12 of them either. We'll probably never know how high the failure rates really are since I'm sure they'll never release official numbers.
