Oh Xbox 360, from Oblivion to Battlefield: Bad Company, you have been a friend. For two and a half years you were there for me when no one else was. There good times and bad times, fun times and sad times. But in the end, I shall remember you as my one and only. Alas, when you first RROD'd my heart skipped a beat and I had thought I lost you; yet you lived on, strong and determined to live. For another year you triumphed on until yet again you RROD'd. This ever terrible cancer that has felled so many of your bretheren had returned, yet together we fought the fight of the ages! On you marched to the beat of defiance and longevity! You RROD'd in the middle of GTA IV, however you would not give up on me! You allowed me to finish that beautiful game and conquered many more.

We roamed Oblivion, marveled at Mass Effect, enjoyed Assassin's Creed (weerd i no rite?,) faced the dangers of Rapture in Bioshock, suffered as Halo 3 brought new meaning to prepubescence, jumped out of our seats whilst braving Condemned: Criminal Origins and Condemned 2: Bloodshot,  slo mo'd through F.E.A.R., pwned COD4, rofl'd at UT3, treasured Battlefield: Bad Company, watched many movies and other videos, and most importantly felt love....

I mourn your loss though I know you are in a better place now. I am forever greatful for the times we had and I shall give this to you as a parting gift:

/salute

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
cause theres too many places Ive got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldnt be the same.
cause Im as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I cant change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I cant change.
But please dont take it badly,
cause lord knows Im to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldnt be the same.
Cause Im as free as a bird now,
And this bird youll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I cant change.
Lord help me, I cant change.

Goodbye, my friend. Goodbye.

This is quite possibly the saddest reaction to an RROD I have seen...

So uh... Will you be getting another one? :/

I think I know what happened. This happens in a lot of "relationships" ...one person "loves" the other "person" too much and thus forces them/it to kill themselves. You drove your 360 to suicide. I hope that you're happy.

It didn't RROD. It just fried out, I turned it on four or five times and each time the screen would split apart into lines and freeze. The first time it didn't happen for about 15 minutes, the second was about 5 minutes, 30 seconds, instantly. It's gone!

I hear that when you send in a 360 they wipe your memory, send you back a used console, or all of the above. If that's the case, no thank you. I'll just have to get an Elite, I will still use my HDD assuming that it does not break down when a 360 is fried/

I thought Free Bird was appropriate. :P

Little known fact, the song is about the death of Duane Allman. Rob Van Zandt and the Allman Brothers are/were cousins.

Not true. When you send off your console to microsoft they specifically tell you not to send them the HDD, so your memory is safe. I've gone through two 360s already. One had a malfunctioning disk drive and the other had the RROD. Both times I got a new 360 and since you keep the HDD everything is back to normal. And they even gave me 3 months of free Xbox live.

If it's you, I'm sorry. But that is the creepiest guy I have ever seen in my life and every time I'm scrolling down a page and see your icon I get shivers down my spine and the urge to throw up. Not even the guys on How To Catch A Predator are that creepy. Please, change it.

Same here, man.  3-guitar lead, awesome drumming, and some seriously inspiring vocals...what's not to love?  As far as the 360 goes...I'm almost hoping mine RRoD's so I can get the stupid DVD drive replace/get the whole thing replaced.

This gives me a chance to get an Elite, at least. Hopefully I can get one before the great games start coming out or I'm not going to be a very happy camper.

I'm kinda with BiggerBomb on Solid Snakes icon being creepy, but only because I spent 5 minutes scrutinising the picture making sure it wasn't a pic of Ron Jeremy.
I still don't get how that creepy little dwarf can be the worlds most famous male porn star...

Like what you wrote and how you wrote it, but to think that free bird is a top 5 song is crazy. Its good, but top 5? Come on, if you are really into "classic rock" I know you think of at least 10 better songs than free bird. Free bird is a great song, don't get me wrong, but top 5, I just can't agree with.
