I've only ever had two things: PC, and the old red brick Gameboy.

The Gameboy hasn't been seen in about eight years now, and PCs get replaced.

I only ever play Football Manager on the PC and occasionally, I'll build a house on the Sims. Although, saying that I like Desktop Tower Defence in small doses... I wouldn't mind a game on it now. Therefore I don't really need a games machine.

We appear to have a Wii - but that's not been switched on since Chrimble when I got infuriated trying to get the fucking bastard thing to recognise more than one fucking bastard controller. I suppose, if they brought out a cricket game for it, I may switch it back on. But I won't be trying to get any more fucking bastard controllers recognised, oh no.

Oh, and I had a PS2 but that's not been plugged in for - 4 years and nearly 2 weeks - it's somewhere upstairs.

Language!
I'venever had any trouble with my Wii at all, and the manual tells you how to set up additional controllers with the system.

One is eminently aware of the manual.

Best check out what your options are via GameStop.

If they'll fix it, job's a good 'un. If not - well, if it won't play games, then it's pretty fucked. If you make it worse (IE not responding to power or user input) by attempting to fix it, then it's not like you're much worse off. Smile Get yer screwdrivers out, have a Google for the error code, eBay open in a new tab for spare parts, UNPLUG IT (sounds like the sort of advice only a true moron would require, but you'd be surprised), get stuck in and see what you learn. Wink

Good luck!

Thanks, I'll certainly need it.




Wait wait wait...

Don't open up yer Xbox. Call it in or email it in on Xbox.com, if you have the red ring, the warranty is extended past an expiration due to design flaws in the 360 itself. (Whatever chip it was that they put in causes the overheat issues.) If you do open it, any warranty is voided.

----This has happened to me three times. I have three boxes in my garage. Been lending them to friends who've had it and want to get the box to ship it in fast.

I'm not even going to try to fix it myself. I'll just take it to GameStop and pay for it to be either repaired or replaced.



You shouldn't have to. Register your console on Xbox.com, and then request a repair. It'll be free as long as you state that you have the red ring. They pay for shipping and all that.

It was a refurbished model from GameStop.



But still a faulty product of Microsoft. They may still cover it.

I once read the entirety of a car's owner's manual.

Quoting a shitload of text makes me feel like a rebel.
