So obviously the RROD plague was nasty at the beginning of this gen, and amny many 360s bit the dust early;

The 360 my friend and I share is still going strong to this day though, I was wondering if anyone else has been super lucky with avoiding the dreaded RROD?

No RROD on my launch premium, but plenty of DREs.

I had a 20gb version that still worked, just sold it to a buddy 2 weeks ago.

yep, just traded it in for store credit yesterday. Cleared out all my 360 stuff to prepare for the ONE.

DRE? Disc read error?

I never had any of those on this 360 neither, its a 20GB pre HDMI model too.

Admittedly it doesn't get used as much by me anymore since I bought my own Slim 360, but my friend still uses it and says it works perfectly. Literally only problem has been the USB cover flap has broken off.

Aye, disc read errors. Fails to recognise there's a disc in the tray sometimes, but it eventually loads up.

My 60GB Pro (Falcon Chip) which I got 5 years ago has had no issues.

Yea my brothers 20 gig original model is still working. He doesn't play much though. Maybe that's why.

I bought a 4 GB Slim 360 which was a HUGE mistake, not only because it took a couple months to run out of storage, but GTA 5 was 7GB (more than the bloody console itself). So I bought an Amazing 320 GB Hard Drive ( that came with Lego Star Wars III) for $80 and Now i dont think I will ever run out of storage.

Oblivion? Dang, that would be one game I would hate my console to eat. Good been working fine since. I never even knew the 360 did have disc eating issues at the beginning.

That would have really sucked since they delayed the launch here twice.

Nope, I have been through three of the original models.

I got the Slim 250GB for Christmas, so I haven't had any DREs or RROD. It's overheated and frozen while playing BF3, but no long-term damage.

I have a friend who has the original model though, and it works perfectly fine.

My first 360 ate two copies of oblivion right when the game was getting good. It took about 3 weeks to get a new console back (4 more eventually failed).

My current 360 is an opus board, meaning the cpu fab is 65nm and the gpu has a better heatisnk. 5 years with light play and it's still alive.

My 20GB premium never died on me. The disc drive would stick every once in a while but not enough to bother me. I eventually replaced it with the glossy slim. I passed it on to a family member who got to enjoy it for a couple of years before it finally RROD earlier this year.

Yeah I have an OG 360 and it runs great still.

Good memories, even though it was a bad time I still enjoyed my time with my X360 and it will be missed. BRING ON NEXT-GEN BABY!

Had an original XBox 360 with 20GB hard drive. I had it for about 6 years and then gave it to my brother about 2 years ago along with all of my games. Didn't have time to play it. Maybe that is why it lasted so long.
