As long as you don't move the console while it's playing ( I'm sure you have common sense ) , and keep the power brick leveled up or rested on an open shoe box then you'll be fine. And don't put the 360 on a rug. Keep it on top of a glass or metal , or wood surface with plenty of air space around it.

Can you see.. Arbiter ? The moment of salvation.. is upon us.

Thanks for the advice, I got a 'media unit' and once my 360 arrives it takes over my old original Xbox spot (hell no I'm not going to sell it so don't ask lol) next to my PS2 (future PS3 spot) and Gamecube ( you can guess what takes over that spot )

My main concern would be how well they packed the system. Hopefully, whoever did the shipping, they would have placed the system inside another box, and covered with some form of protective foam.
 
It is always risky sending electronic items through the mail, regardless if it's with UPS, Fed Ex, or whomever the company decides to use. As a former Fed-Ex employee, I can tell you first hand, that we nearly mutilate a lot of that packages that come through the hubs. They get tossed, stepped on, dropped, kicked...you name it.
 
Not that that's what will happen to YOUR system...:robotvery-happy:

Yeah, alot of people say that while shipping they get jarred and messed up or just a defective part from the factory.....Dont be too worried though the newer systems are built better.
