Well, my Xbox 360 finally went to that Red Ring in the sky.

This has not been a good year for me and consoles. At all.

Considering I’ve heard horror stories about Microsoft customer service, and I’m still smarting from my run-in with Nintendo a few months back, if I just replace the system, will I be able to salvage all of my info. off the hard drive? Is it easy to transfer to a new system?

They really don’t make consoles like they used to. Some of my 20-30 old systems still run strong. These new ones, you’re lucky if they last five years.

I really don’t want to have to start from scratch like I did with the Wii.

UPDATE: Called Microsoft, and they’re going to replace my system for free! Shipping and all. Well, that blew my preconceptions. The guy was actually very cool and joking around, putting all of my concerns at ease. The wait’s still going to be a bear, but I’m okay with the trade-off, all things considered.
