Default Re: Microsoft now receiving 2,500 broken 360s per day in UK alone?

Bad turnaround times are going to be endemic until the post-upgraded-warranty rush is over. MS admitted as much in a Q&A I read in the past few days, though I can't recall where. I'm not saying it's ideal, just that if your 360 fails right now, it's to be expected.

EDIT: Personally I'm hoping that mine lasts until a few months after the 65nm change goes over, and then dies. By that stage the rush should've calmed down, and it would be nice to have a really reliable one.
Dr Possible: Core 2 Duo E6400 on Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4. Galaxy GeForce 7600GT. 2GB Corsair XMS 2 DDR2-6400 RAM (CL5). ATi Theatre 550 Pro. Windows XP MCE. All stored in Piano black Antec Sonata II, with a broken door.

Mobile: ASUS M2400N, Pentium M 1.5 GHz. 512 MB DDR RAM. Intel EXTREME graphics. Windows XP SP 2 / Ubuntu 5.10.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

Mine actually really did fail just last night... Sucks for me I guess!

EDIT: Just a few days ago I was thinking exactly the same thing about the 65nm die shrink, and hoping that if my console was to die it would be after that.
