    Okay, so I made a thread for this, but on a different-themed website forum so I can get more opinions.

    Anyway, I have used the Original Xbox 360 that came out in 2005 when it first came out for the past 6-7 years. However, things went down hill in the past 4-5 years. How? Well.....
    • It had received 3 Red Lights as it had to be sent in to Microsoft
    • The laser that reads the discs had to be fixed 3-4 times, and at the time this thread was made, I think the laser needs to be looked at again
    • It takes FOREVER for it to read a game disc. But it takes longer with the newer games, ranging from 2010-Present Time

    Is it time for me to get a new Xbox 360?

    I dont think so cause with Sony making the annoucement that they are not making a new console to show at E3 I doubt then Microsoft would show a new console either.

    He's asking if he should get a new one of the current gen to replace the aging one he has already, not if it's time for them to create the next gen of xboxes. Which from what the OP said, yes, I'd recommend purchasing a new one.

    Damn, I read the title without reading your post and voted no, I thought you were meaning for a new console i.e Xbox 720 or whatever. Whoops.
    Anyways I think that you should, if you've had 3 red rings that really isn't a good sign, and since you've had it for 5 years now it's bound to start having more problems. That said, I had a red ring once, simply turned off my console, and it's worked perfectly since. Guess I was lucky

    Because of the current state of your console, yes.

    I think you should stay put, if you get RROD'd again then get a new one.

    I say yes, because my original Xbox 360 broke so I picked up a slim one. Now, I can play almost as many xbox games as I want because my new hard drive has 320 gigs.
