Question XBOX 360 extended warranty still available ???

Hey guys,

I just bought a new XBOX 360 PRO at a local game shop.

The salesman suggested that I get the extended 2 year warranty with Microsoft for ± $40.

Since that the base warranty was pushed form 90 days to 1 year, can you still get an extended warranty at all with Microsoft ?

I could not find any info on the canadian version of the XBOX website.

Thanks for any info/tips !

MS announced in July that all XBOX 360s are guaranteed for three years against the red ring of death problem that has hit so many consoles. I got my launch 360 replaced for free when it red ringed.

I really see no point in spending money on the warranty, unless they're offering you a replacement at the store if anything goes wrong. With the MS warranty, you might go a couple of weeks without a console.

Our Xbox 360 scratched the RockBand disc and now rattles. (Something broke, somewhere). X-box would send us packaging to send the console back to them to repair for $110.00 and replace game disc. On checking bill, found out I purchased extended warranty for another year. Took everything to BestBuy and they have now sent it out for repairs (11 working days) and replaced game disc. So for us, the warranty was worth it!
If nothing else, it's peace of mind. XBox was 1 yr & 2 wks old.
