So you'd think Microsoft could see fit to provide me with an Xbox 360 Elite console that lasts more than a year without a failure. If spending $99 to get it fixed would nets me a one year warranty I think I'm due SIXTY years of warranty. But I just want my xbox 360 elite repaired in such a way that I can have more than 300 day or so of continuous service!
