Short synopsis and for those that didn't believe me I posted a link to the amazon order status page.

anyhoo

11-22 first xbox received-eject broken. contacted amazon customer support. replacement shipped/return label to return mine within 30 days. replacement is standard not day one

11-25 2nd xbox arrived-mass grinding noise ensued. I jammed a butter knife into the slotloader and it reduced grinding noise and allowed it to read discs. (not recommened with a steak knife). contacted amazon customer service replacement shipped/return label sent to return within 30 days standard edition

11-27 3rd xbox arrives; this one has an extra sticker on the front advertising HDMI. I plug it in and paranoid that im getting the green screen of death. I go to garage to had a breathing session and not watch. I come back up and all is ready to go. It is now a few days later. Ryse is ticking. Only thing I don't know is why I wear the headset, I don't even know if its working. I have no friends to test it with.

I say this is the keeper, whilst setting up my apps core services shut down. I call 4myxbox the guy gives me 2 months free of live. It appeared in order for it to let me play offline I had to remove my cat 5 jack and suggested to service tech that could be a serious issue if people have to disconnect their wifi or cat 5 to play offline when experiencing intermittent network issues. He escalated the problem.

I do this all in the name of beta testing for my friends and my favorite computing company; love live MS despite 5 xbox 360s and 3 xbox ones!

I'm glad the 3rd one worked, 33% success rate is well, it is what it is.

yeah last time I trolled was back when I got a 360...sheesh you missed the part where I said I was a MS shill essentially.

other consoles Ive had and had break on me
ps3-didnt bother to replace
Nintendo (I think everyones did)
sega genesis (xmas morning; that one sucked)
Gameboy original (couldn't see the screen so returned the 2nd one)

I destroy electronic devices for some reason. My Asusvivo tab smart hates a solid hdmi connection. I forgive it awaiting miracast for x1.

And im a tech for a living. What a nightmare.

I am awaiting Miracast for XBO as well, apparently a MS guy showcased it with a Surface 2 which is great as I have a Surface Pro 2

Haha that's hilarious. Can't believe I took only 2 months of live free. They wouldn't budge on the game code and I wasn't forceful enough. Heck, these guys listen to god knows what all day.

In the end the system is awesome. A lil quirky right now; as I said is the headset just for dress up? the commands don't always work, o it sound like the Xbox is a dog in obedience training.

Also, I forgot to get the rechargeable battery. I kept one stash from the 3xboxes. Heck, they were used.

I also suck bad at Ryse....I'm always getting picked because I die. Sorry.
