Thanks for the info Gaara. I would certainly give it a go on an XBOX that is past warranty, but would ship back to M$ any unit that fails before the warranty period is up, just to be on the safe side.

With the new Falcon chipset, have you heard of any falures? The RROD issue seems to have died down quite a bit in the last 6 months.

Exploit, you back in the land of the living XBOX?

Yeah, I am sorely tempted to modify my working one with the thermal pads etc though to redice the likely hood of it happening to begin with atm.

As for the current chipset.. well seems ok now. Interestingly enough, the Pro consoles are being retired shortly to be replaced by elites completely.

If that is the case ... than SONY must be making a PS3 announcement soon.

I wonder what this years Christmas bundles will be?

Well M$ will be having a to of pro bundles at extremely low prices to move all their stock so they can release elite models proper. As for sony, I am fairly confident you will see a price drop by the end of the year. (finally) due to things like this and constant pressure to do so. Also there is much conjecture flying about in regards to a 'slim' ps3 on the way at some point soon, courtesy of anon tispster on some chinese website showing a cpl of apparent images of said console. Sony arent saying anything one way or the other though.
