Well, I don't care! My Xbox is back as of a few minutes ago!
Its the same one, as it has the same markings, like a scratch on the DVD plate, haha.
I also got a free 1 month subscription to XBOX Live Gold! Wasn't expecting that!
Now to test if it works!
Checking the letter, it has a tick under the 'motherboard' box of what went wrong with it (so the whole thing went basically, haha), saying that it has been replaced, and then tested and passed a 2 hour visual test + passed the diagnostic tests they do on them.
I've never had a console go on me this early, and was never expecting the 360 to die on me, but it did.
My Sega Dreamcast died just before its 5 year warranty my mum and dad put on it at a local retailer all those years ago that we got for one christmas present, and got it fixed, haha.
The shop semed very reluctant even after we showed them a receipt (as they were sort of laughing when we told them we had a 5 year, and they'd have to fix it, thinking we'd of lost the reciept so they wouldn't have to take it),
but thats working to this day (even if it has gone a little yellow (no one smokes...)
But yeah, recently, I've heard a lot of bad things about retailer warranties and how the extra 3-5 years isn't always worth it anymore.
