GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - Critical hardware failure

Definitely a crappy night here. My 360 dying lead to me having to completely redo my living room setup to disconnect cords. Hours and hours! With that said, I'm sure there are others out there with MUCH worse situations. I'll take all this in stride, and be thankful that this is my biggest gripe. I hope you guys and gals are doing better than my 360! See you in a few, short hours.

Nicky Hill is working like crazy these days. If you listen to the podcast, you know he's been out and about working on various TV shows. That's why he hasn't been on the podcast too often. That also means his friends don't get to see him that often either. That all changed today, as Nicky Hill had a chance to stop by and spend the night.

We had plans of playing Gears of War 3. We play the GoW series together, and we always have a blast. We sat down to finally get the third game going...but were met with the fun picture above. After having a long run of things going quite well, my 7th 360 finally died on me. Yes, 7 360 deaths under my belt.

I talked about my 360 dying many years ago on the site, but it seems the issue still plagues me. I take very good care of all my consoles, and in all my life of gaming, I've only ever had the 360 fail on me. From NES to Wii U and every other portable/console from Nintendo and others inbetween, only the 360 has crapped out on me. Now we get to do this song and dance again.

This had me thinking. How many of you have experienced hardware failure with your gaming platforms? What consoles/portables have you had punk out on you? How many times have you had to send in a platform for repairs? Leave a comment and let us know how rough you've had it.
