Why are North American Xbox 360's so badly made?!

#1SaveDaQueenPosted 8/29/2011 6:14:09 PM(edited)
I purchased an Asian Xbox 360 to play Japanese SHMUPS during summer (June - August) and had no problems connecting to live and downloading/playing games online.

I am now in San Diego and Bought an American Xbox 360... couldn't connect to the internet when registering and setting my my Xbox.

Now I'm half way downloading a 300 mb game.. I was 87% done and BAM!

Disconnected from Live.

Tested my connection... According to my Xbox the problem is my router and I need to turn it off for 30 secs.

I didn't turn it off as I am typing this right now.

So yeah, in my experience... American Xbox's are very poorly made. So many internet problems.

*edit*

Okay 5 minutes later I can sign into my live account again and resume downloading. However I've not been plagued with so many issues with connecting to live on an xbox 360 before.

I'm pretty sure i'll be disconnected again in the future in the middle of a game or when I'm downloading a game.

I've never had any issues with my xbox. It's the old non-hdmi premium 20gb one that came with forza 2. Had it for 5 years, works as flawless as my gamecube does.

hmm. Perhaps it's just a coincidence live is having server problems then?

Why would I randomly be disconnect from live for 5 minutes?!

Both models (Asian and NA) are slim 250gb fyi.

Slims are near perfect.

Not sure why you'd assume it's the xbox or xbox live, it sounds more like a network problem.

I don`t get it. This is a Xbox Live whining thread, not a Xbox 360 whining thread.

I am now in San Diego and Bought an American Xbox 360


Where were you before San Diego?

That right there might be a major factor.

Yeah what the hell?

Where you in a different place? With different internet? And you thought the console was the problem?
