Aren't XBOX's like $99 now? Plus PS3 ain't a million bucks now! You can get that as a backup and if you hate the controller, I think they sell XBOX shaped PS3 controllers.

It's not 99$, it's at least $200 for a new one

You deserved it, you moron!

Just wait for it to come out on PC.

Now that ain't nice sad.gif

I wish I had the cash for a gaming PC and the patience to wait for a PC version!

I know how it feels, although I had it worse.  On GTA IV's launch day, after about 2 hours of play, I got the E74 error on my 360 during a multiplayer match.  Couldn't play the game after that for a few days.

With my luck, that sounds like something that might happen to me.
If that do happen, I might something like this panic.gif

It happens to the best of us. I got a new 360 in December 2012. My Arcade has seen better days and I'm pretty sure I'd been working on borrowed time with it, so I got the new one as a precaution.

Hope you'll be able to work something out before the 17th!

That sucks OP. I didn't know Xbox's still RRoD. Usually it's only the older models. RRoD is pretty rare nowadays. I got RRoD twice and I'm on my 3rd console, but the last time it RRoD was back in February 2009. I was playing TLAD and the graphics started to crap out. Everything was a noisy blue. Next day while playing Witness Protection the game froze, rebooted and got RRoD. Hasn't done it since then.

That blows. I remember back in the cod 2 and cod 3 days when I was playing multiplayer and thought to myself, this would be awesome if it was in a modern setting. Months later COD 4 was announced and I shat my pants in excitement. I even got into the first round of the beta and guess what, day the beta comes out, I download the beta, start it up and as soon as its about to be done loading, BAM RROD.

I think Skate came out around that same time and I was so into skateboarding growing up and was so psyched for that game and ended up spending the night at my friends house just to play the demo haha. FMLuck. I know the feels you are feeling.

If the xbox is under warranty send it in asap. When I had mine fixed it took about 2 and a half weeks and that was back when xbox's were notorious for RROD. I'm sure they deal with it a lot less now that the slim has been released so you should probably have a speedy repair.

My friend has also been waiting for 2 years and his PS3 has just recently got the flashing red light followed by the yellow light of death. His system malfunctioned and the solder holding some components inside his PS3 got f*cked. There was f*cking smoke coming out of the sides and back. sneaky2.gif

I know what youre going through. My first 360(and only 360) i got it dec 07, gta came out shortly after in '08. well i got to beat gta iv tho a few months later my 360 red ringed. not even a year old. I would play it once in a blue moon if i was at someones house or w.e. then I finally got a ps3 in oct 2012. good luck man.

Edit. Pretty much i am still very new to IV.

Here is the tutorial to fix it.

RROD Tutorial

I have an xbox but it won't dl the new updates, i know why i just feel like spending $30 to do it..

Plus I have a ps3 and like back in the day I will definitely play GTA V just like I played the other GTAs on PS. Don't get me wrong xbox is awesome too but this is more of a nostalgic feel for me.

Hope the video helps, good luck!

2 Years... It's been almost 2 f*cking years that I've been waiting for this game and today my 360 died on me. After lasting for 6 years it's so f*cking typical that it would get red rings on the final run up to the greatest game ever created. Even worse, I can't even afford a replacement or the ludicrous 70 repair that Microsoft charges! My only hope is to scrap up a few pounds to buy a sh*tty second hand console within 3 weeks.

My message to everyone is to look after your gaming equipment before this happens to you as well, and count yourselves lucky! cryani.gif

That's kind of what 360's do.

Aw dude, I feel for you! I'm certainly counting myself lucky for having one of those newer black Xboxs that hardly ever get it. Good luck raising the bread, yo.

Assuming it's the same problem as the YLoD on the PS3 (The solder breaking under the gpu) You could strip the console down to the motherboard, get some liquid no clean flux and put that under the GPU, then use a heat gun on the GPU for say around 30 seconds (Don't quote me on the time required, there are YouTube tutorials) This fixed my YLoD on my old phat PS3... Not for too long, but it fixed it nonetheless.

Well look on the bright side. At least it didn`t die during installation of the first disc. You still have a bit of time to scrap some cash to buy another one. I`m keeping mine off until I get the game, only playing once a week for an hour to make sure it is still breathing lol.gif

Just count yourself lucky that it happened now rather than when you are just putting the gta v cd in and the disc drive snaps the cd in half. Now that would suck.
