We’re going to switch positions for today’s Tales from IT, and talk about a major issue I had to walk myself through. The Xbox 360 was a great console with a lot of great games. However, two out of every three Xbox 360 consoles would completely fail for no reason after just a few months. My first Xbox 360 failed after just four months of regular use, and at the time it failed Microsoft would not acknowledge any hardware issues with the console.

I was a broke college student who spent the last of his money on a very expensive console that broke for no reason. How could I get it fixed? This is without a doubt one of the most frustrating personal stories I will ever tell, and over a decade later the time has come to tell it.
