Well my day finally came - which I thought would not happen since the born on date of my xbox is June 2006. ANyway it was last night that my box started freezing up a few time and after a few restarts - BOOM - the 3 red lights of death. Well lucky for me I bought the box at Costco (almost 6 months ago) and they took it back and refunded my money no problem!! They did change their return policy but furtunately it only affects a few electronics (TVs and computers) 3. and not video game consoles. In fact the guy even said I was smart for buying it there and this new one i just got will have the same protection (which is pretty much lifetime). Of course they made sure i had every little thing that came with it back in the box. So my question is what happens to the arcade games I downloaded? I did pay for those and would not want to have to buy them again!! Secondly, will my xbox live stats still be intact like my ranking in Rainbow 6? Would hate to start that over again!!
