Complete bullshit. I consider it an insult, and a joke, to PAY a third party to protect my investment from manufactures defects...ESPECIALLY in a Billion Dollar industry. Did M$ send you a tube of K-Y Jelly after you paid BB for that extended warranty?

Doesnt matter how much or how long it takes when its the right thing to do.

Its more than gaming. And, thats a BIG part of the problem, customers are often inconvenienced more than once. Guess this tread officially needs this video of repeat returns:
