Is my xbox invincible? Empty
PostSubject: Is my xbox invincible?   Is my xbox invincible? EmptyFri Feb 19, 2010 9:07 pm

Never had a problem with it, still on my first xbox 360 elite since December 30, 2008. If I am right it is a "falcon/Zephrynix" chip with an estimated fail rate of about 20-30%. Here is what happened to it.

1-It got RROD 2 times, but the wierd part was that this happened a few minutes in between, all I did was turn the xbox off then switch it back on and it was fixed, never had that problem since, and that was more several months ago.

2-On Christmas vacation, along with the other days I played it and the times I forgot, there were 3 consecutive "nothing" days where it was on consistently and still no problems.

3-I played my xbox in a 96 degree room upstairs in the summer time, and that's a black xbox it absorbs heat and still nothing wrong.

4-I played it with the xbox being next to a wood-burning stove (that's New England for you), the stove was on and blazing hot, still no problems.

5-It fell from table-top height, not as big as the others but worth mentioning

RRoD is basically gone these days. It's just the PS3 fanboys spitting it out because they have no other argument against the 360 and they are still living in the past.

Falcon still had a lower failure rate then the older versions. But not as low as the jasper.

Just like the "ps3 has no games" thing right?
Currently it is a great time to own either console and an even greater time to own both.
Both consoles have really promising line-ups for 2010, and both are reliable and at similar price-points.
@OP you are really lucky D:

I think my Xbox may be invincible.

I've never had rrod.
I've moved it when it was on and had a disk inside. The disk made a horrible clunky crashing sound inside the 360 but both the disk and the 360 were intact and working fine.
I've had the 360 & power supply thingy on a thick carpet and was playing it for hours with no overheating.
I've left the 360 on all day long with a game launched and it didn't overheat.
I used to leave my games collection stacked on top of my 360 when I was gaming and that didn't affect it either.


etc

I've never dropped it though.
