I left it wrapped up for about an hour total.  First time, it was just the console, then I looked around and someone mentioned wrapping the power brick too so I wrapped it also the second time and left it like that for about 45min.


I heard you were only supposed to do it for like 10 minutes max....


lmao


He probably fixed it and then broke it during the next 50 minutes

Made no damn difference to me.  MS was already sending me a box at that time.  I would have teed off for golf of the damn thing if I had some clubs and a ball....and if I played golf.  I was so damn pissed at the timing (Christmas Smiley Indifferent), I didn't care what happened to it at that time.

It screwed me out of getting Gears and RB6 because I didn't feel like buying the games and sitting there staring at them.  Sadly, I would have liked to have been compensated for the poor timing but wasn't.

That would have sucked so damn much.  Atleast I'm glad there was nothing wrong with the HDD.  I would have cussed them out over it.

Here's the screen I kept getting whenever it did boot up:

Had it been any other time, I would have been more "patient" on the matter.  I was waiting for Christmas for like a month and a half to play Gears and RB6 so that's what really pissed me off that it happend the day before that "destined" day.

Mass Effect is the only 360 title on the horizon for me (unless I decide to go back to the other 2) but that may change depending on the Crackdown Demo (which I believe comes out tomorrow).
