I still prefer our 360 over the Wii... but I think Wii has a lot of potential, too and when I play it I love it. Damn thing should come with a laugh-o-meter!...
But getting back to my much loved 360 which, having survived our kids and 8th month in our home, decided to die when I felt the urge for a blast around the ring in PGR3. On the weekend I contacted XBOX support..... after listening to many options, following the prompts, I was told they're closed.
Idea 1) State your hours of business before making me jump through hoops you idiots.
Called again today..... and it got worse. I explain that our 360 no longer starts, no longer runs, no longer works and if it wasn't too friggin' obvious already, no longer plays games.... and what's the first thing idiot on the other end says?... Nope.... not 'do you want fries with that'.... McDonalds wouldn't have given anyone that stupid a job. Asks me to start my 360 so we can see if clearing the cache fixes it.... It doesn't start I tell her.... no spinning globe on the screen... nada, nothing. Are you sure she asks me.... Right about now, I'm starting to understand violence against Customer Support people.
I've worked with some of the dumbest people ever to inhabit this planet.... and yet, Microsoft found their leader and gave them a a job dealing with potentially annoyed customers. Well done.
Now I have to return it, wait for it to be replaced and hope I don't have to deal with anyone even remotely related to the idiot that assisted? me today when it comes to get all the shit I'd purchased through 'LIVE' back.
Nobody could dislike Sony more than I do.... but Microsoft are fighting them for that spot in my heart;P
Oh, our Wii still works and the television aint broke and the missus aint bruised and the ceiling fans are not raining down blood from severed limbs. Kudos to Nintendo.
