XBox Service - Wow

This post is more than 2 years old.

So, I figure why stop at 2 OT posts when I can I go for three? Last month I blogged about my XBox's hard drive crashing. I decided to ahead and send it in. I was told that the repair time would be five to eight business days, which ain't too bad. I sent it in. UPS dropped it off at the repair center on the 1st. I figured with the holiday rush, I'd be lucky if the unit was sent back by the 9th.

Get this - they actually fixed it and shipped it on the 2nd. It was there one whole day. Nice. I'd actually have it now but for two days in a row UPS has some weird error with the package. Supposedly it is on the truck today, but UPS doesn't deliver to my street till after 6PM. Then I get to find out if my saved games were rescued. I tell ya - out of this whole thing - the thing that gets me most upset is the fact that some games don't allow you to back up the saves to a card. As my hard drive was slowly dying, I quickly copied as many games as I could, but some games don't allow that option. I believe it is to prevent cheating - but no reason is good enough for me. Until the day they create a non-breakable hard drive, this option of preventing game save backups should not be allowed.
