    OK here's deal I currently have a 360 which after a good solid year and a half of it working its become a broken down POS.
    I have repaired it it 3 times already only to have it RRoD on me after i repaired it 2 months later. Now the problem i have is I don't know what to do with it so i thought i would ask you guys your opinions on this.

    So should i get it repaired and trade it in for the new 360 or repair it and go for the ps3 (shock!!)

    What do you think? BTW (would have made this a poll question but i don't like polls very much)

    So it's broken 4 times and you expect to be able to trade it in?. Face it, it's fucked. Throw it in the bin.

    Canook my friend. IF you have gamestops up there, or one of their alternatives if you trade in a RROD 360 they give you $30 trade in for a new one. That's what I did here in the US
    (Oct 2009). Check it out.

    now why in the hell would i do that? I wouldn't get anything back and i don't have enough money to go buy a new one. if there is a chance to trade in a repaired and working one or what that guy said to trade in a RROD one and get some value back for it id rather do that

    I'd rather attempt to save up for a PS3 instead of a 3DS, tbh. [​IMG]

    trade in and get the new 360 (that's if you dnt mind loosing all your stuff on your HDD) or backup your most important data on USB's if you can (cross your fingers that the 360 doesn't die in the process)

    my only reasonable suggestions.

    Well i am thinking of doing that but since i don't have any important data on my hdd to begin with so i would just clean it out and i believe its not gonna effect my gamerscore i have so far (hopefully)

    but also by that same token i also thinking to trade it in for a ps3.

    honestly i don't know what to do? i cant decide

    again its all down to personal preference, i have solved this issue by just having both consoles,
