    So that 33% number is true. I know it is true in my household where it is 50%.

    They are doing this to stop class action lawsuits. Will it work?

    I wonder about this action. Okay, so my 360 now has a 3-year warranty. For how long? I got Red Ring last week and my 360 has been down since. (It seems as though it's the power brick as my console works using another power supply.)

    So let's say I call them up, they create a "case" for my console, send me a shipping box, and off it goes. I get it back 3 weeks. Even though warranty work has been done, is my warranty still good the duration of the 3-years?

    call them at 1-800-4-MY-XBOX. I think it is good for 3 years of original purchase.

    I didn't have to send mine in since I got it at Costco. I just ordered a new one and kept my hard drive. That was last November or October. No problems since.

    I read that it doesn't take 3 weeks. They just send you a refurbished one.

    That is what Sony did with my PSP when it broke. They didn't fix mine, just sent a refurbished one. Took about a week.

    It took 6 business days for me when I sent mine in.

    They sent me a refurbished unit that has been fine. But now it sometimes won't pick up wireless controllers, and sometimes when I turn the xbox on the green quadrant lights wont even come on. Pretty strange nonetheless as I haven't seen too many cases like this. Either way I want to get it repaired so when Halo 3 comes out I won't be stuck with a neutered xbox.

    Yeah mine doesn't pick up controllers either, but it eventually does. I think your batteries are low or their is wifi interference.
