Its been six weeks. Six painful weeks without an xbox. I'm beginning to feel it finally sink in. If you are not aware, I got the RRoD on November 15 while playing the apparently system hogging 1v100. It sat in my room, broken, as I got the necessary paper work to ship it in. A night of talking with xbox customer support because my account wasn't working finally allowed me to print the shipping label. My joyous self went down stairs to tell my father the great news that I can send my xbox in the next day. Although I was positive that it would not cost me a nickel to get it fixed, my dad was less persuaded. My dad not believing me had decided to send it to my local Rent-a-center, where he bought it a few years back mind you (They were going to sell me a display model with dirty sticker stuff on the bottom; a missing memory card cover; a wireless controller without a adapter at the end; and no memory what so ever. But when I went back to see if they could give me a better model, they suddenly had a brand new one in the back...what a surprise.) just in case because they said what ever was wrong with it they would pay. Never forgetting the almost catastrophic xbox they sold me if it wouldn't have been for me keen eye, I was needless to say, a bit uneasy. So here we are, going on week six and they have never contacted me to tell me it was in. I preordered Mass Effect 2 Collectors Edition which you no doubt comes out next Tuesday so either I will be able to play it come Tuesday or.... looking at it sit on my desk as a wait another unknown amount of days until it comes back to me.
Out of curiosity, has this happen to anyone and if so, what did you do? Also, tell me what you think of this.
