Why am I wasting your valuable PS3 playtime telling you about the shameful existence of an Xbox 360 corpse in my home? I'm glad you asked:
- This is the second time this has happened to my Xbox 360! Yes, two have died under my care. I'll quote a post I wrote when my first Xbox 360 bit the bullet: "Never laugh at the less fortunate. I've never had a console problem in my life. I laughed at these stories of people going through 2, 3 and 4 defective Xbox 360s. Laugh I tell you! And not just a chuckle, but a deep, evil genius laugh. Well, who's laughing now? Touche, Mr. Gates." Touche indeed. So far my PS3 has worked perfectly. And I've heard no stories of mass PS3 failures.
- My Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive is now a very expensive decoration. I've made a decent investment in HD-DVDs and they're all coasters for now. At least I have a few Blu-ray movies on hand that will allow me to continue living the sweet, sweet HD dream.
- Flame bait.
