I'm asking about this because a friends brothers 360 has exploded... twice now. which means he's on his third right now. And by explode I mean bang, lots of red indicators (whatever they mean) and the inside charred out. The first time he ran it on carpet and in a tight bookshelf, so obviously it overheated on a long session. The second time he treated it like gold, it was put in the middle of a room, stacked up so there was bottom clearance and plenty of side clearance, but it still blew up. However, the second time it blew up it did so pretty much straight away after turning it on. So. Thoughts? Opinions? My 360 chucks out disturbingly hot air out of the back, and it worries me. I have to DEFINITLY do the warrenty tomorrow just in case. I've also ordered a base thing which has two built in fans, which shoot more air through the base of the 360 to cool it down better... I'm quite paranoid about this thing overheating. http://www.play.com/Games/Xbox360/4-/3296477/Freezer_360_External_Cooling_Fan_for_Xbox_360/Product.html While I'm on the subject whats overheating like on the PS3? I know it was conking out at TGS (I think) because of overheating, but what is it like now that some folk have had it a few months?
