I have heard some horror stories about the 360 getting the red ring of death, and hard drives malfunctioning. Now I am assuming that most of the problems were with consoles that were bought between launch and early 06. The question I have is this: Do you think that Microsoft has worked all the kinks with the 360 to the point that if you were to buy one it will last? I might be paranoid about it, but I am not fond of dropping $300-$400 on a new console only to have it crap out on me in a years time. Now I know that there is a year warranty on it and everything, but I have had my PS2 for about 8 yrs now, and I don't think it is to much to ask, for the 360 to last that long as well. So basically what I am wondering is if the newer 360's that were bought, say between the middle of 2006 till now are over all working better than the problematic 360 that everyone seems to be complaining about.
