“Walking away from Microsoft”

Written on: 12/03/2013

We bought an xbox for our kids, only $99 and then 2yr contract to get LIVE. We were unable to activate, several phone calls and weeks later we get an email saying we are going to be charged an early termination fee for cancelling... WHAT? we are still trying to get assistance to activate. Then we get an email saying Best Buy showed that we returned it and voided our contract. Then we are told by Microsoft WE HAVE to return it and repurchase. That it is the only way. They cannot activate it… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/12/2010

the best thing about the 360 is the gaming, sure the live does cost but it is worth it, I think. But I must say it is so faulty, the disc reader seems to read the disc when it wants to even though there are no scratches on the disc, thats what gets on my nerves, other than that it is a great machine and would recommend it to anyone… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/09/2009 by foxview (71 reviews written)

Wasn't sure whether to give this Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium overall 3 or 4 stars, find the console very noisy, range of games and ease of setup are very good, control pad takes some getting used to but is very comfortable. Don't agree with the two tear Xbox live silver and gold compared to PS3 offerings. (Personal opinion). Console itself seems to have a cheap feel about it… Read Full Review

“Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium online gaming is awesome...”

Written on: 08/02/2009 by matty disturbed (1 review written)

Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium online gaming is awesome compared to other leading future gaming consoles also has good titles that are only coming out on the xbox such as halo3 and gears of war 1 and 2. Also the new dashboard is quite good as well a little improvement on the old 1. Having to pay for xbox live and extra downloadable content is a bad point. Also some times online there can be a bit of lag especialy on gears of war 2 which spoilt the game a bit except for the hard game type… Read Full Review

I am on my 3rd xbox at this time due to the 3 rings of death.. but each time I have called microsoft they have been excellent over the phone, sent me a box and shipping sticker at no charge, and I have received a new xbox promptly. Other then that I play my system daily and thoroughly enjoy it… Read Full Review

“Great online play, great game variety ”

Written on: 21/09/2008 by Spartacus 52 (5 reviews written)

Great online play, great game variety

Dash features work great. Graphics are good and loading speeds are short. I got the red rings three times. The firt time took about a month, the second was about a week. The third time I just bought an intercooler for $20 and so far I havent had any problems. Well recommend Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/05/2008 by Gudderz (1 review written)

Being mid-market, it is a perfect balance in its price, and with better exclusive games.
Better for the more serious gamers then Wii-owners, but even though you have to pay for Xbox live, it is better then the PS3's online.
Rumors of a wii-like remote (or 'newton' remote look interesting), so I think we have yet more to see and look forward to from the Xbox 360… Read Full Review

I have bought my xbox when they came out... It has been in for repairs 4 times already. Every time I had the red rings of death. I wonder how microsoft can pull it off as I was let down with this machines...

I don't get it.

Anyway, take my advise, buy a Wii... Graphics may not be perfect, but you'll have a lot more fun in my opinion as I did… Read Full Review

Brilliant graphics, good game choice HD ready, fun for hours, very good! Well recommend the Microsoft Xbox 360 Premium as in my opinion it way beats the PS3. As far as I am concerned BluRay will not affect anything, the only problem for me is I am scared of getting 3 red lights… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/02/2008 by paulenew (34 reviews written)

Played many good games whilst this console lasted, but regrettably Microsofts lack of interest in build quality finally destroyed any interest I had in it. The pathetically inadequate Hitachi/Samsung dvd drives make this a deeply annoying console to use even before they fail and destroy discs after (according to my experience & internet consensus) 6-12 months, because the noise they generate is simply unnacceptable. Mass Effect game finally killed this piece of garbage by daring to stress the… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/02/2008 by imrightbehindyou (20 reviews written)

I got this for Christmas and and I played some fun games and stuff, it's a cool system, but a year later, it died. Classic flashing three red light syndrome. So a week or two later, I decides to do something about it. that very day they announced that they would fix that, and a month I'm playing it again, but as far as I am aware they still didnt fix the disc tray, it sticks and I gotta poke it until it opens. The console was great and all but lately it's been the games that make me say, "well… Read Full Review
