Microsoft has admitted there was a problem with their machine and spent upwards of $1 billion to help remedy that situation by providing three (3) years of warranty service for your Xbox 360 (Sony and Nintendo give you 90 days). Why didn't they recall? Because recall's are typically used when an item could be potentially dangerous and the last time I checked, nobody has died from the RRoD.

I am seriously confused about how you feel "abused". Did Microsoft go over to your house and beat you or molest you? What the hell do you want Microsoft to do? They have already added another heatsink and put in a smaller CPU for free. . . will it work? Nobody knows yet as far as I can tell.

I understand people get angry because their machines stop working on em, and I fully believe people should stand up to corporations who abuse them and tell them to fuck-off. These kinds of corporations should be shut down. Microsoft, however, is not one of those corporations. If your system breaks, they don't tell you to shove-off, they send you a box and you send them your Xbox, you wait a couple-3 weeks, and then you get a brand new Xbox (I got a new one). Its a harmless process, and all you have to do it wait a few weeks. You'll live through it, I promise.

P.S. How did you spend $280 on Rock Band. The whole thing is only $180, and you can't buy any accessories short of a GHII 360 guitar for $60. . .
i know i believe we are dealing with a young kid who never dealt with a broken product before. you have to pull teath to have sony fix a broken tv. his 360 broke at the worst time because it's the holiday season and mail slows down everywhere in the US and there is nothing MS or any other company can do about that. he wants his console replaced yesterday and that's just not going to happen. remember this is a gaming section and most of the people here just don't have the life experience to understand how these type of issues get worked out.

your right products don't get recalled unless it's hazardous to it's consumers or the defective rate is far beyond said company can handle. MS putting over 1 billion back into its consumers is far beyond what i have seen any company do with any product. at that point most companies will just say take us to court. no class action will bring anything close to 1 billion because once the numbers get to high the lawyers will have to start recomending to accept it because you never know what can happen in court.
