    Oh yeah these always get the job done, lets sign a worthless online petition, let's whine at a big company that chances are don't give a damn. While I admit that a 90 day warranty is total bullshit, this will do 2 things nothing and like it.

    I know two people with a 360. One bought it at release. His lasted until the start of summer. It gets so hot, that it will burn your finger to touch it after it runs for a minute, My other buddy bought his sometime last february. Same thing, his lasted until june.

    I don't even own an Xbox 360. But I'm with everybody here: The petition is worthless.

    Not to get off topic, but two 360 owners that I know recently had their systems go kaput. When they called Microsoft, the rep told them "It looks like your system was purchased TODAY. So the warranty will cover it." Sounds to me like Microsoft is fixing them regardless of the date of purchase.

    I see no mention about how you can pay a small little fee to extend your warrenty with MS. Also, if you don't liek the Manufature's Warrentys, then buy it from a store that lets you buy warrentys thru the store for X amount of years. Best Buy and Circuit City come to mind.

    This is one reason why I hate to buy a system at launch.

    They make it sound as if they had no idea what they were getting into. "Wha... the manual says 90 days, and I passed on the extended warranty in the store!? I keep my system on the shag carpet, in a pile of dog hair and feces, and near an open flame!? I had no idea that thing could go wrong! Please help me big company x!!"
