You might need the receipt for the store warranty but you don't need it for the 3 years Microsoft warranty.


yeah i know but the 3 year warranty only covers the 3 red ring problem !!

I'm pretty sure that's not right, the warranty should cover any problem on your 360.

He's right. But they won't know, just phone up M$ and tell them you got a RROD. Or just wrap your 360 in a towel and play a game to deliberately overheat it

ok i have called microsoft this morning & they told me the console will be covered without the receipt for 3 years the 1st one for any defect & the remaining 2 for red ring of death (they actually said red ring of death

). they wanted the serial number though to tell me exactly when the warranty starts. i will call them again later with the serial number when i get home.

hope this thread be helpful to others .

thanks for the replies.
