    Ten things to do with your Xbox 360 after you get the dreaded Red Ring of Death

    by Jessica Moen on Sep 14, 2009 at 08:40 AM
    Well dear readers, I have just dealt with the tragedy that many Xbox 360 users have dealt with, the dreaded Red Ring of Death (ie when your 360 suddenly stops working altogether and you see three fed lights around the power button).

    There is seemingly little you can do except send it to Microsoft for repairs (assuming the warranty is still good) or buy a new one and hope the same thing doesn’t happen.

    So the question is, what do you do with your broken system? I put some thought into it and came up with ten things you can do with your now useless console.

    So here you go. Good luck with whatever choice you make (send photos) and let’s hope the Xbox 720 will run a whole lot better.

    1. Gut the thing and use it as a storage bin or bookcase. – “Forget Ikea. I shop Microsoft.”

    2. Use it to prop open a window – “Nice view?”

    3. Sell it to Gamestop and hope it’s the cashiers first day and he doesn’t know he’s suppose to test it first – OK, so it’s a tad unethical but it’s his fault for not following procedure.

    4. Fill it with water and add some pretty flowers. – Think green. Get it?

    5. Paint both sides of the console different colors and hang it from the ceiling as a mural. – Use reinforced rope.

    6. Two words: Step Aerobics

    7. Drop it out the window to smash that obnoxious car whose alarm goes off at 3 in the morning.

    8. Just get it fixed. – OK, this is probably the most logical idea but what fun is it to be logical?

    9. Put it in your truck for extra traction on those icy days. – Best for you rear wheelers.

    10. Throw the darn thing out and buy a PS3 – Hey! Free Blu-ray!
