I just got it. :facepalm:
My 360 is about 3 years old, Am I just shit out of luck? Or will they replace a 360 that old?
If you didn't modify it, they might. But I doubt it.
I had that happen last year (it was about 2 yrs old) but that's because my dumb ass bought an intercooler piece.
Bought a new one and it's been fine since.

Or you could break down and buy the new Xbox 3sexy

Wow, red ring of death. Glad I never encountered any problems with my PS3 yet...not even sure where my warranty for the damn thing is.

I'll always jump at the chance to contribute naught and point out that PC owns all. I mean, seriously, most of the games are multi-platform nowadays and, in the odd case, one can always borrow a console to play an exclusive title... not to mention that PC versions are, more often than not, superior to their console brethren (Dragon Age, Fallout 3... basically any moddable game).
So, now that you have a reason to trash that evil box, do so. :)

How ironic. Last week I encountered the PS3 yellow light of death on my original 3 year old fatty. Sad times :(

Ps3 yellow light of death wtf?
I have had 7 xbox 360's which all broke. 1 playstation has outlasted them all by far and it is still ticking.
Also comes with a free dvd player and free online play.

I know, I had no idea the problem existed. Apparently a lot of first adopters with the original units (olddest fat ones) experienced it when Playstation updated the native OS because the hardware was outdated.
I held off for a later release, hoping I'd be okay, but BAM! As soon as I turned the system on, the light turned yellow and nothing would play. Quick Google search told me it's called the "Yellow Ring of Death". :(
I've had the thing for almost 4 years and never had a problem till it crapper out. That's a long ass time for a gadget to last, especially compared to those crappy 360's.

Today I broke down and said F it. I went out to buy the new PS3 250GB. As I was packaging up my old broken one I realized that my FIFA was stuck in the system and I had no way to get it out :o. So... I embarked on a mission to disassemble the old unit to reclaim my game. I got to taking it apart and figured I'd take it ALL apart:
