    same shit happened to me back when I got GTA IV. Gotta love it, lol

  2. FoxyMayo on September 17th, 2010 6:57 pm

    That should teach you to NOT buy Halo.

  3. MrRaccoon on September 17th, 2010 7:02 pm

    Is it or did the X-Box just take an auto-security measure?
    *is ready to get mauled by Halo fans*

    That xbox has has probably been abused with halo games in it's childhood.

  5. KamikazeGible on September 17th, 2010 7:09 pm

    Can't let you play that, Xbox!

    360: "Oh what a lovely day, I wonder what new games my owner shall bring from the store on this joyous day."
    *sees Halo Reach*
    *Red ring*

    In terms of finding proof that 360s have sentience, that's really reaching.

  8. shonen413 on September 17th, 2010 7:18 pm

    fake. the case is a fake. its not green, and no way he bought it used. fake.

  9. Onecanofsprite on September 17th, 2010 7:18 pm

    Looks to me like the Xbox…
    Is the one with the Halo.

  10. CrackLawliet on September 17th, 2010 7:18 pm

    Um…Is it just me or is the Halo: Reach box black??

  11. ArmyOfMidgets on September 17th, 2010 7:20 pm

    *counts people on game cover* Looks like the 360 got…


    An Overkill.


  12. smashpro1 on September 17th, 2010 7:21 pm

    The 360 Slim cannot Red Ring. *smug as fuck*

  13. PewnyPL on September 17th, 2010 7:24 pm

    Ahhhhhh, the RRoD. I dunno if they fixed that issue in that slim X360, but I do know that this one eats DVDs!

  14. TCC on September 17th, 2010 7:43 pm

    this is why i'm a PC gamer…. now I've just gotta get the cash for game itself… >>

  15. dope92 on September 17th, 2010 7:46 pm

    not only is it a RRoD

    its a 3 ring RRoD

    rel="nofollow">this'll make things a little better

  16. FlareonWuver15 on September 17th, 2010 8:01 pm

    This happened to me yesterday.

  17. Histomen on September 17th, 2010 8:30 pm

    Maybe the 360 noticed it was being endorsed by Justin Beiber and committed suicide?

  18. Gamage on September 17th, 2010 8:40 pm

    It just goes to show, halo will always cause rage.

  19. GameboyPATH on September 17th, 2010 8:42 pm


  20. Linkman15 on September 17th, 2010 8:54 pm

    Who knew that a Xbox would do that at the perfect time?
    Everyone actually.

  21. Nick Soapdish on September 17th, 2010 8:59 pm

    It looks like playing Halo
    Is just out of Reach

  22. Rocker23220 on September 17th, 2010 9:01 pm

    LMFAO, thats EXACTLY what I first thought of when I saw this.

    +1 for you.

    And +1 for Nostalgia Critic, wherever he may be.

  23. fmarulz on September 17th, 2010 9:01 pm

    all the Halo has already a warning within the title, just look at the O in Halo with a microscope and it says "may cause" followed by the dreaded ring.

  24. Dr. Furry on September 17th, 2010 9:05 pm

    its just halo reach, as much as xbox sucks, he's not missing out

  26. Tifakitteh on September 17th, 2010 10:01 pm

    The funny thing is that, actually, the game crashes at random points on certain Xbox 360s. For no apparent reason. My coworker and at least 3 persons called today to complain that Halo Reach's Campaign would crash at some point on their Xbox. While others have no problems at all.

    You'd think they'd test for that stuff before releasing the game.

  27. GameboyPATH on September 17th, 2010 10:37 pm

    Also, +1 for getting your answer to the comment question of the day chosen. :P

  28. vatonnage on September 17th, 2010 10:58 pm

    I didn't know Wolf had a part time job as an Xbox 360…

  29. Marik_Ishtar on September 17th, 2010 11:40 pm

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Excellent! The first stage of my evil plan has begun! Soon everyone else with a copy of Halo: Reach will also feel the wrath of my Millennium Red Ring!

    Now to move on to that new Call Of Duty game…

  30. AuraMaster on September 18th, 2010 12:20 am

    The Gaming God is a cruel and unmerciful one.

  31. Link4all on September 18th, 2010 12:48 am

    Halo, in my Halolz? It's more likely than…Wait a minute.

  32. died70 on September 18th, 2010 1:19 am

    Ummmm I wanted to do a Nope joke about this but i am currently unaware of any neck the xbox may or may not have.

  33. MasterLuigi452 on September 18th, 2010 1:36 am

    It looks like that 360 hates Halo so much.

  34. MoG on September 18th, 2010 1:37 am

    Has anyone noticed Microsoft Has this thing with the words " Of Death" I mean theres the Blue screen "OF DEATH" And the Red Ring "OF DEATH"… i kinda wanna see what they'll make next, and what color they'll orientate it with

  35. DM1293 on September 18th, 2010 2:03 am

    Remember the days when the BSOD was the running joke? Those were the good old days. A simpler time, when flash animations were king and flash games were amusement for kids, not stay-at-home bored people who wanted to grind bejeweled.

    …whats that? Relevance to pic? I dunno, I was trying to reach out to people.

  36. Arb on September 18th, 2010 2:09 am

    So much for finishing the fight……

  37. BurnoutSpartan on September 18th, 2010 11:53 am

    I got E71 when I got Reach, Fixed in a few hours but still pissed me off

  38. KamikazeGible on September 18th, 2010 1:45 pm

    It started as a typo, but when I noticed it, I decided to leave it as a clever Nintendo pun. Thus, it is both.

  39. Spartan_Laser on September 18th, 2010 4:33 pm

    Incidentally, I've had two RRoDs, and I was comped two FREE consoles by microsoft!

  40. jpurdue on September 18th, 2010 5:46 pm

    this is not a used game it is the display case for the game from gamestop before it came out pay attention and xbox 360 elite is the best never had problems

  41. DCMN on September 19th, 2010 7:14 am

    If this had happened to me, I'd of probably murdered someone.

  42. M4DD4WG on September 19th, 2010 8:06 pm

    Can't let you play on that X-Box.

  43. TheRedGrunt on September 19th, 2010 8:17 pm


  44. TheRedGrunt on September 19th, 2010 8:21 pm
