Dear XBOX 360,

How long have we been together now?  I brought you home when I was still living in the condo, so, what is that?  4 years?  5?  And we’ve had some good times, haven’t we?  Remember Batman: Arkham Asylum?  And Spiderman: Shattered Dimensions?  Oh, how about all those Halo and Medal of Honor moments?  Assassin’s Creed, Turok, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Viking – the list goes on and on.

…and yet.

Now you do this:

…was it something I said?  I know I’m not a hardcore gamer, I tend to spread my gameplay out over weeks, sometimes months.  Did I not give you enough attention?

I mean, it seems kind of convenient.  You give me the red ring of doom when you are out of warranty and I am unemployed?  Was that intentional just to hurt me?

And it gets worse.  You act as my DVD player, too.  All those movies we’ve watched together.  Now I have to do Microsoft support things and fork over $100 if I want to get you fixed.  When money is tight.  What’s up with that, XBOX 360?

Do you want to sit on a shelf, unused, unloved, unplayed, until I’m back on my feet again?  Is that what you want?


This is because of all the Apple products surrounding you, isn’t it?  I can’t help it!  They’re so much easier to use!  And they don’t get infected with stuff!  It’s nothing personal, XBOX 360.

Maybe all of this is just bad timing.  Maybe you couldn’t help yourself.  (A little warning would’ve been nice.)

I’m just so confused.  At least Wii is here to console me…
