congrats in getting an xbox360..Just a little tip. My next door neighbour has one and had a problem with the console damging the disk. She took it back to the shop and said it is a design fault and is called "Laser burn"...Google "Laser burn for xbox360" and you'll see what I mean. The Xbox HAS to remain completely still whilst playing the game, any movement will result in the disk being damaged.

Congrats, you've bought the best gaming console out there - for real games anyway. The PS3 is pretty damn good, but the Xbox is king.
Just make sure it's in a ventilated place (They're notorious for overheating, but not really the new ones) and as already said, don't move it around when the disc is in - but come on, that's common sense anyway, as if you would.

Nooooooooooo.... Bad idea. But whatever. Enjoy it while it lasts. You'll be getting the RROD soon.

Nah, that's the old chipset which overheated, the new ones hardly ever do that. Even if it did, the manufacturers have introduced a three year guarantee against it - straight swap.

Could be worse - if he'd bought a PS3, it's a case of sitting back and waiting for eventual laser failure

f***ing hell, you are a little ray of sunshine, aren't you? Why do you put everything down?

I've had an Xbox 360 for several years now and it has never malfunctioned once.

Don't give me that. You know the PS3's failure rate is much lower than the 360's!

A lot of people have had a good 360. But there's also been a huge number who haven't. I'm just warning the guy. I don't mean to sound negative. Honestly.
