Recently, my 360 has been freezing/crashing like nuts. But for some reason its only 2K games. I picked up NHL 2K7, and that thing freezes every other game, which is incredibly frustrating, there are good days and bad for whatever reason. I recently rented NBA 2K7, now thats an amazing game but yesterday it decided not to work. Everytime I select a quick game it crashes, yet it worked perfectly fine 2 days ago. Anyone have any insight? I mean can the constant crashing be fixed? MLB 2K6 also had a similiar game, if you played an exhibition game it would always freeze after the 1st inning, apparently to fix that, if you had an external hard drive you would have to remove it. I've scoured some websites, but cant find anything on my crashing problem, any input is appreciative.

have you checked the game discs themselves to see that they arent damaged or scratched? I know with the first XBox i had since it was the first model the drive wore out eventually and stopped playing games, but that was after 4 years of usage, it shouldnt be happening with practically brand new 360

NBA 2K7 came out last week, the disc is perfect...I think its a 2K games thing.

When did you buy it. Microsoft has recently extended their warranty on certain unit purchased prior to a ceratin date.

You pretty much won't have to pay a cent to have it fixed.

I got mine free via Pepsi/Doritos...so it would be one of the launch consoles.

well after talking to support, and their solutions not doing anything...I am getting a new console, how convenient just before the warranty expires!

You have a defective unit. I just sent mine in for repair/replacement with the same problem. The fault is very common. If it is out of the warranty period (3 mos) you will have to pay for the service. It is a real rip-off. Over $170 CDN and at best you get a refurb.

Call the service line (1 866 740 9269). The people are fairly helpful but know little about the CAN warranty system as the call centre is mainly a US one.

Best of luck
