Three red rings does not necessarily mean your 360 is dying a slow death: http://support.xbox.com/support/en/us/nxe/kb.aspx?id=907534&lcid=1033&category=hardware Check this support page to find out if it has something to do with your power supply, or if it is indeed a "hardware issue" as the page puts it. I recently got three red rings and freaked out too, but when I checked my power cable I found out it had managed to wiggle itself free from my Xbox 360. So if you are lucky, then these game glitches are just coincidence. Best wishes! And sorry if you already knew this.
