Well of course you got the rings of death. Look where you have it. Don't you know you can't place your 360 within 5 feet of anything else? Otherwise, it will overheat and die.
I'm on my third one now, and I think Micro$oft has fixed the problem. From what I've heard, they added an additional heat sink and fan. I have noticed mine runs cooler now and so far, no problems. Just send it in and get your replacement.

PS3 plays DivX files... and BLU-RAY.

I actually got that the other day and my heart stopped.
I turned it off and unplugged the power and plugged back in and turned back on and it was gone, and it's been working fine - very strange. Sucks for you though, guess no game in our Cup tournament? :(

I can't believe that worked! My understanding is the problem has been that the 360 gets so hot that the solder starts to melt and run. Then it cools and makes connections there shouldn't be and/or cracks the motherboard. So, I would think intentionally making it overheat wouldn't be good either. Crazy stuff.
