My Xbox 360 Should Be Back This Week (Fight Cancelled)

From all the stuff that has been written on-line about Xbox 360 problems, I thought I’d be waiting weeks to get mine back. Everything actually went very smoothly…

Monday morning I called MS Xbox Tech Support. The agent I spoke with took care of things very quickly. He started to troubleshoot with me on the phone, but I told him I looked at the MS website and did all that already. Then he went straight to asking me for the serial number.

After I gave it to him he goes “Is this Casey?” I was like “What the fuck?!?” but then I remembered registering on-line. Not only did he know my name, but my address as well. After he confirmed everything he gave my a service number and an address to a service center. The service center happened to be less than 10 minutes from my house. Time to jump on the scooter.

When I got there the first time it was closed. So I went back home and decided to have a last meal kind of thing with my 360 and some friends.

When I went back to the service center, there was a short line of old Chinese people bringing back Xbox 360s.

OK, actually they were bringing back cellphones and stuff. Things were handled really quick. The service rep. asked me a few questions, then took my machine and told me I’d get it back in the mail in 3 to 5 days. I’m glad I got it in on Monday, that means I should have it back between tomorrow and Friday.

Things were handled in a very professional manner here in Taiwan. I have a feeling it’s because of this place being smaller AND being the land of consumer electronics. Oh, and I even got a courtesy email sent confirming the phone discussion I had.

Nice job Microsoft!

Note:  I spent all day making this silly ass movie detailing the above events.  I’ll have to sleep on it and decide if I should post it or not.  I got like no work done today.  I spent more time bitching/being sliiy about the loss of my 360 than I would have spent actually playing it if it was here :P.
