No I'm just seeing if there is any place in town that maybe takes to them to fix up or something like that.I was able to get it refurbed years back after it initially died(not the RROD btw). Guess time has run its course though.

You can go to all the wal-marts and find the dumbest employee possible and return it.

How long have you had it?

If you are going to dispose of it make sure you take out the hard drive so you can transfer saved games, profiles etc to a new xbox if you wish.

I believe I got it around 2005ish. Yeah I've already transferred everything as I got a newer xbox a couple years ago when Telus was giving the freebies.

If you do want to fix it or if anyone has problems with their video game console in the future, go to

http://modznrepairs.ca/

My friend heard good things about them on another internet forum and he was very satisfied when he got his PS3 repaired.

If you read further it says that reflows($35) will last 6 - 24 months and reballs($60) are a permanent fix.

oh ok... I think that 35 dollar think is interesting. Considering the new console should be coming out Christmas 2013?

i think JTAG xboxes are those modded xboxes. That whole hacking, cheating aspect of gaming. For example, on call of duty, you can create modded lobbies. (i'm guessing).

I'm not really sure haven't heard too much about "the next gen" consoles as of yet. This last set of consoles has probably had to been the longest lasting on the market since the old NES.

Don't expect new consoles from Sony and Microsoft until at least 2014. This cycle was intended to be 8 years or so. It's only been 6.

Can't say I'm surprised. Honestly I would have been happy to see it end after 3. Not sure how they are going to continue on with everyone thinking that Kenny is dead. Overall I think 'm disappointed with the decision to do another season.

That "leaked booklet" was pretty much confirmed fake when they found some of the sketches in it elsewhere.

We know more about the PS4 target specs because Sony is always so bad at sealing leaks, but comparatively we've gotten some pretty good tibits from around the gaming sphere.

Like, it's codename is Durango, it's flooded with memory and will likely be the most powerful of the next-gen.

Drywall

If anyone knows a person who does dry walling, just need to put one sheet up but some of the prices are very high for such a small job. Thank You
