New 360 Advice

Looking for help with this guys, my boys 360 has got the 3 red lights and is out of warranty, as the broken one has a hard drive, is it possible to buy a new one without the hard drive as I think this would be the cheapest option for me.

Yep, your exactly right. Buy an arcade, slap on your hard drive and away you go.

Are you sure MS won't fix your console ? The Warranty was extended to 3 years and even then if you lean on them they often cave. I would get a new one for your boy and then set about trying to get MS to replace/fix the old one. You would have nothing to lose.

How old is the console ?
The 3 Red Rings fault is covered by a 3 year warranty :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply. I will try them again. The console was only repaired just over 1 year ago, but the guy on the phone said after the last repair they only cover them for 1 year.

the console is three years and they replaced it just over a year ago with the same problem.

Ring them up and lean on them as Steve as said.
They should repair it seeing they have already done a repair that has only lasted a year. If no luck then pickup an Arcade and just add on the HD :thumbsup:
