it's been pretty well established at this point that most of the 360's problems lie in the solderless lead joints (and the same goes for the ps3, actually, although it is a better ventilated console) deforming and becoming brittle.so my question is, why the fuck don't they just put lead into the solder? surely the environmental impact of using lead is far less significant than the environmental impact of shipping millions of 360's and replacing them?
Dood, no one is willing to collect that data and analyze it. I deal with the same issue here at work; a never ending circular shit storm of disagreement.

Tis a sad day. Today I turned on my 360 and it froze. Restarted and it worked fine for a bit and then froze again. Restarted and then it happened. That scream you heard at 4:47pm (Pacific Time) was my anguish at seeing the Red Ring of Death.

Of course! I'm sure Microsoft loves the cost involved in the shipping/repair/replacement and negative publicity associated with it. I don't think the "any publicity is good publicity" idea works in this case.

:(The other day I was trying to play CoD and the console kept freezing. Later that night I played 1943 just fine. Today I bring home Red Dead, I got through the whole first chapter and then it froze when that lady comes to talk to you.Now the console boots just a little, freezes when the logo comes, and then modulation sounds are played. No red ring or E74 error shown, FUCK.PS. Manufacture date was May 2006, purchased in August of 2006.UPDATE: It RRODed. I tried booting a few more times and finally nothing would show and the red ring if death came about.
