    My copy of Dead Rising keeps freezing up on me. I start killing zombies, and it just freezes and I get lines thru the screen. I just picked it up 2 weeks ago. The disk doesn't seem that bad. Its pissing me off. ARRRHHHHHH!!!!

    I fucking hate that game.

    Seriously.

    Worst. Save system. Ever!

    I had to play through the opening 3 times, in a vie attempt to save the gamer. Ie ven went to the place, saved it and then turned off the console. Apprantly that isn't enough for the game to save my progress. I'll sell you my copy, it doesn't freeze, it just doesn't save.

    It froze a few more times. Then finally quit. So I don't know what the hell was going on with it.

    Yeah, I'm not too fond of the save system either. I had to restart once. It saved my stats, but wouldn't let me start where I saved.

    Dead Rising = WIN
    Dead Rising's Save System = LOSE

    The problem you describe is exactly what happened to every game on my 360 before I got the red rings of death. I hope you do not have the same thing happen to you.

    Hopefully not. I've had my 360 for 4 months now. And I don't play it very often. But that has been in the back of my mind whenever it freezes. I keep looking for it.

    Can you play any other games without a problem? Colin McRae Dirt killed my 360 in exactly the way you describe. It now won't play shit.

    Uncle Bill sucks. Why is his new machine so faulty?

    Looks like it is the Xbox. I put in Mega Man Anniversary Collection today. Didn't even get to play. I had just finished with the game options, and then the screen went black. FUCK!!!!!!!!!!! I've got the TF game pre-ordered, and its 5 days till it comes out. Looks like I'll be calling Uncle Bill.....

    I recall tech support having me play a DVD in there and see if it locks up for DVDs as well. They would RMA the Xbox if it locked up during DVD play. I've had numerous lock ups before but that was because of the Xbox 360 overheating.

    My roommate kept insisting to place it in some confinded space and there was absolutely 0 heat dissapeation, ugh. I got a Nyko cooling fan and the thing works fine. I'll get some lockups for Viva Pinatta and GRAW 2 but that is it. My other 4 games work fine and I can play them for hours and hours.....

    Just got off the phone with Xbox. Looks like I'll be sending it in. I've had it for 4 months. A console shouldn't have these problems after 4 months. I can understand a few years but not 4 months.

    Least they pay the shipping. When my first PS2 died, I had to pay shipping to get it to them. But then the PS2 died after I had it for 2 and half years.

    They offered me a free month's subscription for a Gold account. But thats pretty much useless to me, since I don't have any games to play online.

    Silver lining: now you can get some.
    Seriously, the benefit of most games on the 360 is their online play.

    There're still some cool features you can use use with the gold membership anyways. Checkout some of the xbox live arcade games, a lot of them are cheap 10 dollar games. They have Castlevania Synphony (typo I bet) of the Night avilable to download.

    Yep, same thing happened to me on my first 360. Sent it in for free (original release is a free replacement), and got it back in 1 1/2 weeks.

    New unit has been working fine, but just locked up a few times on Shadowrun.

    Silver has all that. I had SOTN the day they released it on Live. The only thing you can't do with the Silver membership is play games online.

    Took a week for the empty box to get here. Sent out the 360 today. Hopefully I'll get it back soon. I let a friend at work borrow my copy of TF. Figured someone should get some use out of it.

    Got the Xbox back today. Not my Xbox but an Xbox. Looks like they just replaced mine. Almost a month to get it back.
