My Xbox has had the red ring of death for about 2 years I think, or maybe its one, I'm not really sure. I'm guessing I can't still get send it in for free can I?
I was hoping they were going to show the buffer 180 in the game.
TheXbox 360 generally has a 3 year warranty so you should be fine. They shouldnt give you any problems just ring 1-800-4-my-xbox and froce your way through the machine to a person tell them its dead and that it happened recently to avoid complications.
You wont have to pray it doesnt happen again because the 3 year warranty renews after every fix. if it ahdn't i would have had to buy 2 new systems now. Though i haven had RROD in a long time last time my disc tray failed but they didnt give me any issues at all.
