    Got the three rings of death come up on the xbox, and have a feeling its (just) out of extended warranty. I have seen all these do it yourself pull the thing apart videos on youtube, has anyone given them a go? Are they a long term solution or do they only fix the problem for a short time??

    Yeah I think Glox mentioned something to do with X-clamps I think. He said it was quite simple to fix from what I remember. My advice would be to check youtube for tutorial vids.

    I have fixed quite a few with this problem, it can be a bit hit and miss. You want to do the X-Clamp fix (google it). Don't buy the pre-made kits they sell online, they charge far to much for them! Google around and you will find all the seperate parts cheaper.

    I have found sometimes this fixes it, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it perminent, sometimes it might only last another few days / weeks / months.

    Sorry to hear this has happened man. It's unfortunate. There's some things that should just never bust on you. Your gaming console definatley being one of them.

    Nah its for the non cheap arses who are willing to spend that bit extra for consoles that last more than a year or two.

    Plus graphics, online, games etc... are all better!

    Only thing a PS3 lacks is Halo. But I heard the new one is shit anyway so I wont be arsed about that

    Re: Xbox Ring of Death

    Do what I did...

    Ring up & complain, profusely, don't stopn if you don't get the outcome you want either, write letters.

    TELL them they sold you a product they admitted themselves in the national media was faulty, yet didn't recall it!

    Mention lawyers.

    Worked twice for me (out of warranty) & 3 times in warranty, which they don't complain about.

    All 5 times I pushed them from one months free gold live membership to 3 months too!

    Persitence is the key ;)

    I much prefer a PS3 controller to an big ass xbox controller anyday. I know they've gotten much smaller than they used to be but still they're way too big! PS3 controller = ergonomic= win!

    Re: Xbox Ring of Death

    racing games... why the fuck is the 'X' button the throttle, how you sposed to accuratly control that? and then the brake is normally 'O' which is next to the throttle, so you can't do 'left foot braking' style driving!

    PS is for fags!
