OK microsoft needs to sort there shit out.

Got a brand new xbox 360 about 4 weeks ago and got gta 4 about 2 and a half weeks ago brand new and played it every day for a couple hours and then yestaday it starting freezing so i turned it off and then today i turned it on started playing again and yep started freezing again and then frooze so i had to turn xbox off and on again and then got the bloody error message. Disc cannot be read please play in a xbox 360 console i was like what the fuck it is a 360 game and console so took disc out and checked it no marks on the disc put back in and the bloody xbox not reading any cds, dvd's or games now.

$700 for 4 weeks of gaming on a 360 now its stuffed thanks microsoft. back to the normal chipped xbox with 500gb hdd.

Anyone had this problem?

Sounds like you just have a bad dvd drive to me. That is not Microsoft that is the dvd drive manufactures. Kinda like getting mad at a movie theatre because the movie you chose sucked. Microsoft has no control over the dvd drive manufactures. And for a matter of fact all the other consoles have had some kind of dvd drive problems so it is not just the 360 console it is the dvd drive manufactures. I feel your pain about your dvd drive going tits up but you might want to send a nasty note to Samsung or Hitachi and stop directing all your anger at Microsoft. Just a suggestion though. Very Happy

I have no idea how long it takes to get your 360 fixed since you live over in New Zealand but over here in the states it doesn't take long at all so hopefully that is the case with yours. Very Happy

Sorry to hear about your problems I had a dvd drive go on me too, hope you get it all fixed and let us know what happens Exclamation

I'm not sure how much it costs in New Zealand but I know in Canada and the States it is 50/60$ for a year of gold where silver is free. Also when you sign up for silver you get a month free of gold Smile

The main difference is

Gold:
- Same as Silver
- More Exclusive Downloads then Silver
- Online Multiplayer

Silver:
- Download Demos
- Download Content (in game items, gamerpics, themes, etc)
- Get updates for your xbox and games
