    The week after I got my Xbox 360 back from the repair depot the first time I got an RROD , Microsoft admitted that there was a problem, and announced a program to repair defective Xbox 360 consoles . Supposedly they replaced my console with a new one, but I don't think my new one had the fix they implemented...

  • PSA: Gamers, Watch Your Freakin Mouths!

    WARNING: The audio in the linked video is NSFW. I just came across this post on Joystiq about the problem of trash talk on Xbox Live. Well, the "trash" part is a real understatement.

  • Bitten by the Red Ring of Death

    Well, my Memorial Day Halo 3 Fragfest plans just bit the dust.

Now I am wishing that I had traded my...

  • The Vista Daily #16

    <sigh> I wish American Idol would let you vote to boot people instead of keep them. Then Sanjaya would have been sent home a while ago. That's why 13 year olds shouldn't have cell phones. But I digress. Anyway, here's what's been going on with Microsoft in the last 48 hours... Second Life has traced...

  • What the Cell?!?? My Next-Gen Gaming Wii-view

    Speaking of Joystiq and the Xbox 360 , they have a very interesting series of comparisons between the Xbox 360 and the new PS3. The results aren't very encouraging for Sony.

  • Xbox 360 and Windows Vista - Not quite yet...

    I recently bought an Xbox 360 to use its multimedia capabilities (and become a gamer) with Windows XP Media Center. But also, as I am testing Windows Vista also, I tried to see if my Xbox 360 would connect to a Windows Vista Media Center PC. Apparently its not quite ready yet to tap into Windows Vista...
